HUNTER RESPONDS TO MEXICAN MILITARY INCURSION BY REAFFIRMING NEED FOR INFRASTRUCTURE
House.gov ^ | 8/7/08 | Duncan Hunter

Posted on 08/14/2008 9:39:32 AM PDT by pissant

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) responded to reports that a Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint by members of the Mexican military in Arizona by reaffirming the necessity for border fencing and other infrastructure. According to a State Department Spokesman, the encounter “stemmed from a momentary misunderstanding as to the exact location of the U.S.-Mexican border.”

"I disagree with the State Department’s characterization of this incident," said Congressman Hunter. "The fact that members of the Mexican military are routinely operating in such close proximity to the border, with no identifiable purpose, raises serious questions about their activities. Rather than dismissing this incident as a mere misunderstanding, the Departments of State and Homeland Security should try to make sense of this and the more than 40 incursions that have occurred over this fiscal year alone.

"If the Mexican military has a problem identifying the exact location of the border, then we should make it clear to them. Building fence and implementing other infrastructure in areas where incursions appear to be more frequent will prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. This isn’t the first time the Mexican military has crossed into the United States and, until our border is clearly defined and aggressively enforced, it certainly won’t be the last."

NOTE: A Border Patrol agent was recently held at gunpoint by members of the Mexican military who crossed the border into Arizona. According to reports, the soldiers returned to Mexico when other agents responded to assist.

I think a lot of people who would have supported Hunter voted for Huckabee.

I wonder how long it will be before the violence in Juárez spills over into El Paso.

When the Janet Folgers of the world and some of the other evangelical ‘leaders’ started pimping for Huckabee as if he had a better record on the social issues than Hunter (he didn’t), then it seemed to push Huckabee into the ‘top tier’.

They aren’t an enemy. They are smartly taking advantage of what we have given them for the last 30 years.

You could always shoot the sobs and put their heads on a post to mark the border....

Dazzled enough to make Rudy McRomeny the clear frontrunners and money men for the entire primary.

“”Hunter - the man who SHOULD be President.””

He would have been great president because he is so RIGHT on all the key issues. Apparently he was not what the power brokers and GOP wanted for the country. If Reagan ran agan, he would not be what they desire in a President either.

Will Duncan Hunter, Sr. have a speaking part at the upcoming Republican Convention, and what would he say if he did? Also, would John McCain truly and seriously want Duncan Hunter, Sr. in a cabinet position (Where would McCain put him?) in a McCain administration, and would Duncan Hunter, Sr. accept such an invitation?

A good reason to start shopping around for another political party - or start one of our own.

To hunter it means a wall. Actaully, a double fence with a border patrol between. TO Mccain, Rudy, Chertoff, etc it means a pink ribbon.

“You libel based on what?”

Libel?

LIBEL???

How is it libel to call a two-faced, slick-haired, Republo-liberal a “two-faced, slick-haired, Republo-liberal”.

“WASHINGTON — Gov. Mitt Romney expressed support yesterday for an immigration program that places large numbers of illegal residents on the path toward citizenship”

The truth kinda stings... don’t it.

Thank you Duncan Hunter!

And thank you pissant, for posting this.

I tried, but the only link I had was to American Free Press.

BTW, what’s the problem with AFP anyway?
