LAREDO — The threat of another September 11-style attack and spreading gang violence have united Texas sheriffs along the Mexican border to seek more federal money for security.

Members of the Texas Border Sheriffs' Coalition formed Wednesday said rural counties need more resources to fight national problems.

I think the governor should expand the role of the Texas State Guard. That way we can avoid dealing with the federal government. Keep it local!!! (Texas State Guard cannot be federalized by law.)

Boy I'm glad this is taking center stage. If Bush recants on his stupid illegal immigration policy, I can go back to being 110% in his corner. All my discussions have to start with the qualifier, "Well I don't agree with his immigration policy but....."

Terrorists will not hesitate to pay drug cartels to get them across the border, Webb County Sheriff Rick Flores said.

"We have intelligence that Middle Easterners are making their way across Mexico and crossing into Texas, he said. "God forbid that we have another 9-11."

Gee, this info has been out there for a while....

Ping. Discussion about this is growing at a good clip now, isn't it?

I think we should start a shuttle for northerners and midwestern folks to California and Arizona so they can see first hand how we have been plundered. I don't know what else would work. Jorge has the ignorance of America's population on his side.

This is a comment that appears here often. Has no one noticed that the Army and the National Guard are pretty busy at the moment in Iraq and Afghanistan and that we have a few fires smoldering in the wings which may need them also, like N. Korea, Iran, Lebanon, and Syria? The members of the Guard also have fulltime civilian jobs to return to once their tours are over.

The Clinton administration gutted our military, cutting the manpower in half, and all I hear here is Bush is not doing anything, down with Bush.

Some of you need to think about solutions, solutions that will work and not things that just sound good like send in the Guard.

I love the way the story is going--and we definitely have the Minutemen to thank for a lot of it!!

I have seen 2-3 stories in the last week about how Canada WANTS the immigrants from Mexico---maybe the Minutemen should form a shuttle system from the Mexico border to the Canandian border--NON-STOP pick-up and drop off service!!!

I would gladly contribute to the shuttle !!
