Texas National Guard On High Alert For First Time In Decades

The border crossings between Texas and Mexico are erupting into protests and violence. Texas Governor Rick Perry is not waiting for the Federal government to provide security. He has put the Texas National Guard on High Alert for the first time in my memory.

At the link there is a FOX News clip in which a Texas state senator gives more details, and a clip of a platoon or possibly company sized shoot-out between Mexican troops and soldiers for the drug lords.

President Calderon of Mexico is taking on the drug lords, and they are responding with a fit of violence.

Our Governor, Mike Beebe, refuses to act on illegal immigration and associated problems, preferring to retreat into the convenient fantasy that it is strictly a federal responsibility. The Texans cannot afford to indulge such delusions.
