Texas Rangers Sent To US-Mexico Borders To Fight Cartels

September 11, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) has announced that he has been sending a special team of Texas Rangers to the US-Mexico border to engage cartel members who smuggle people and drugs into the country.

This “Ranger Recon” has been operating since the beginning of August, when Perry selected a number of rangers to join the team, and begin patrolling areas along the border that are well known for illegal smuggling and trades.

“The drug cartels continue to battle the government, and each other, for dominance along that border, and we begin to see incidents of spillover violence in our communities. We must protect our citizens, and we will protect our citizens no matter the cost. These teams are an essential part of that effort,” Perry was quoted by Chron.com.

But many are already cynical about his reasons, and the results they will produce.

“Rick Perry gets real revved up right around election time. From border cameras to failed DPS funding, his border security measures have been abject failures. Right now, we need highly trained DPS anti-cartel teams on these drug corridors to arrest cartel operatives, forfeit assets and deal with this issue,” Senator Eliot Shapleigh (D-TX) reportedly said.

The majority of ranger activity has been sent along farms on the border, which have seen a great deal of cartel activity on their land.
