I don’t think these guys know exactly what they’re up against. Its no longer some down-on-his-luck mule, shuffling across the border for a pay-off on the other side. Its now dedicated killers who glory in the mass murdering, beheadings and dismemberment of the people who stand in their way.
The border states need to pass laws, similar to the “Stand your ground” laws, that authorizes the use of deadly force against illegal alien trespassers.
Right, so if they don’t do it, and the Sheriff is a wuss, and the federal gov’t won’t do anything, then these overly dangerous people you’re talking about are going to walk right in.
That’s what you want? What’s your solution?
The cartels rely on a thoroughly cowed populace, thus the violence against unarmed people. The cowards that carry out this violence act in the dark, under cover of night.
The cartels greatest fear is of the populace rising up against them. Armed, battle tested, American Army trained folks arrayed against them would be an absolute disaster to their operations. Cowards do not go for stand-up fights, and they likely realize that they have no chance against a trained, veteran force.
Oh, and I suggest somebody go and check that local Sherriff’s bank account for suspicious large deposits...
It’s totally the other way around.
The amount of restraint shown by Americans n the face of the borders being overrun is mind-boggling!
For the most part, Americans living on border areas have shut up, turned their heads and looked in another direction, and let the government make the decisions and set the policies.
If that approach fails, and the people take the initiative, all bets are off. Heck, the last time we had a little disagreement with Mexico it only took our guys like five days until they had captured Mexico City!
