Residents of New Mexico’s Bootheel and parts of southern Arizona say human smuggling and drug trafficking is taking its toll on the region. The Deming Headlight reports that residents are scheduled Thursday to express their concerns to federal officials during a meeting at the Animas Community Center in Animas, New Mexico. Judy Keeler, a longtime resident of the rural border region, says her home was recently burglarized and it’s not an unusual episode for other residents. Residents have said state Highway 80 has become a favorite for Mexican cartel drug runners who manage to navigate out of the Peloncillo Mountains along the Arizona-New Mexico border. They want an even more increased presence from the U.S. Border Patrol.
I bet they do! Can’t blame them one bit! Those of us here in sunny Colorado, which borders New Mexico, are also very concerned about this crime spilling over from Mexico…especially when you states like California issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens, further exacerbating the problem. From day one here at The Daily Buzz, we’ve been calling on federally elected officials in Washington, D.C. to BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!!….and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico; not back 40 miles as has been the case. I’m often asked why the Army National Guard and not regular U.S. Army troops? That’s simple. The Posse Comitatus Act prohibits our regular military from doing such things. BUT, the Army National Guard is allowed to. There is a legal loophole there. So, all one needs to do is activate Army Guard troops in the affected states (i.e. CA, AZ, TX, etc.), and put them on long-term “orders” (i.e. active duty). Then, those Army Guard troops need to stay on the border until that wall/fence is finally built above and below ground (to prevent tunneling)…however long it takes. Simultaneously, we need to be deporting illegal aliens by the hundreds of thousands (and yes you read that correctly)….paying particular attention to known gang members, already convicted criminal aliens, and those who have already been determined by an immigration judge to be deported. To do anything less is incredibly foolish, and not in our country’s national security,. and economic, interests. We have between 12-22 MILLION illegal aliens already here in America, and it’s getting worse by the day. And, that’s before you start throwing the flood of Cubans and Syrian so-called “refugees” into the mix. By any definition, we’re being invaded and our country’s infrastructure (i.e. courts, law enforcement, hospitals, etc.) cannot take it. Enough is enough! If you haven’t already, email and/or call your member of Congress and both of your U.S. Senators, and tell them to put and end illegal immigration, and to BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!!
