Homeland Security Has Plans For Border Violence


www.boston.com

WASHINGTON—A top Homeland Security official told a House panel Thursday that Mexican drug cartels are the biggest organized crime threat to the United States.

Since 2008, about 7,000 people have been killed in the Mexican drug wars, and violence is spilling into some U.S. cities such as Atlanta, Phoenix and Birmingham, Ala.

Homeland Security official Roger Rufe said a department plan to respond to escalating violence on the southwest border includes deploying military personnel and equipment to the region if homeland security agencies become overwhelmed.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

Looks like the Border issue between The United States and Mexico is getting to the breaking point.

Homeland Security is planning on deploying military personnel if Homeland Security Agencies start to lose ground.

While president Obama says no U.S. troops are needed.
So much money is spent on mass confusion.

Update on Story www.google.com...


Further, the Homeland Security Department's attache to Mexico said the violence in Mexico is not as dangerous to U.S. tourists as has been portrayed.

Alonzo Pena said the violence is in isolated areas of the country and only affects the people involved in criminal activity. He said the violence is not affecting U.S. citizens visiting Mexico and Americans should not cancel their vacations in the country.

Earlier this month, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives warned college students on spring breaks not to travel to parts of northern Mexico because it was too dangerous.

In February, the State Department advised travelers to avoid areas of prostitution and drug-dealing in Mexico.

Wow.
So first of all DHS has the role of border patrol?
And they have the role of deploying troops domestically?
And nations thousands of miles away from the North Atlantic can be in NATO?
And the Underfunded Border Patrol fits in where?
And NAFTA is still on the Table?
If we're borrowing so much money from China can we just borrow that big wall they for awhile. I suppose the US is like Homer Simpson- we borrow all of nice neighbor's stuff and mess it up or never return it.
But seriously--justice in this scenario is capital punishment- Why are drug wars from a neighbor spilling into our country? Keep them out and if they raise dust over here- let THEM be on the ground when it clears.
Absolutely unacceptable.
La Raza can go straight to HE**.

I decided quite a while ago I refuse to step foot in Mexico until our border is recognized and enforced. Abolish NAFTA and return all illegals. Let them weed out the causes of disparity in their country before they further undermine ours.
Boycott Mexico!

I say that over here in california let the boys from camp pendelton practice their marching and patrols right along side the US/Mexico boarder. give the officers or trainers loaded rifles but not most of the platoon out on patrol-they're still cadets. Let them fire at anybody brandishing anything that looks like a weapon stick or otherwise. yeah a few Sheppard roaming the wrong side of the boarder will get accidentally shot for being stupid or doing the wrong thing from time to time. but they need to learn not to hang out there anyways. the real progress will be in the deterrent that knowing armed marines that are trigger happy are patrolling all the time with orders to shoot suspected drug runners and arms dealers on sight.

Then do the same in all the boarder states. we got enough marines going through boot camp to send a few out to patrol these regions for training purposes. just make sure they are armed. let these drug runners know that there is no greater enemy than a US Marine.

Also, let the seals and the force recon marines have a little fun. let them practice there too. move some of the long range sniping courses from the chocolate mountains to shooting vermin hanging around the boarder. Let them go south of the boarder too sometimes. whats mexico going to do about it. complain. more important who cares. mexico has been a parasite to the US for a while now. time to spank the parasite. going into their territory and putting down and doing hits on their problems would go a long way in helping the situation over there with the drug runners that think just because they are armed and fire indiscriminately that they a re big tough guys. little trolls is more like it. send in some real men to deal with them.

Can anyone else feel the noose tightening? Somewhere deep inside I feel that Homeland Security is an evil entity,bent on our total domination.
Once they have the authority to move troops freely in this country,we are essentialy skrewed.
Homeland security has already named constitutionalist,patriots and free thinkers as terrorists.What's next,people who defend their very existance will be enemies of the state?

As a conspiracy guy, I was so excited over the holidays that a buddy was hosting an older buddy in town from Virginia. I was excited to meet him because he was DHS.
Get this- I meet up with the guys at a bar, he paid for all the booze all night, tipped enormously, bought an after-bar meal. After his extreme drunkeness got us kicked out of my regular bar, I take 'em to the super-ghetto bar down the street. We're talking fights on a nightly basis kind of bar- and sure enough within 10min the door-guy was escorting some ghetto hoochie and her man-on the way out the door she smacked the DHS guy. He proceeded to grab her and thrust her outside then totally wasted he says "she just assaulted a Federal Officer- that's a felony." LOL- I don't think it counts when you're wasted bro.
Anyways, this guy said how he's single with like a 5-room house, a BMW Z3, brand new Rover SUV, etc. ---totally paid big bucks even though he was just another schmuck.
I asked him if he knew of a "list." and a bucnh of other stuff- somewhat informative.
We stayed up drinking until like 4 in the morning and dropped him off at the airport at like 6 or 7. DHS parties hard apparently.

US Customs & Border Patrol is a division of the Department of Homeland Security.

Actually... EVERYTHING is a division of the Department of Homeland Security. :O

It always cracks me up because Homeland was a chain of grocery stores when I was a kid and Homeland Security was actually an old man that followed the local college girls around the store to 'help them shop' for groceries.

Funny, yet not.

By Jove! You're right!
From their about us page:
"CBP is one of the Department of Homeland Security’s largest and most complex components, with a priority mission of keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the U.S"

Notice their "priority mission" has nothing to do with preventing the flow of illegal entry!
I'm getting so sick of this country they can have it. Heck, our POTUS is an illegal!

Notice the word "IF" in the ops first source.

This is merely a plan and the article doesn't define what constitutes overwhelmed.

In other words DHS will act when they deem it fit to do so, not when people want them to.

As far as the violence it is in isolated areas.

I do find it strange that they worry about the gangs over there but do very little about the gangs over here. Nevermind, I forgot that our gangs have constitutional rights.

I have a good guess on what the FEMA camps are for now.

Mexican drug cartel gang members.

It is not PC but if it gets bad enough they just might round up all "Mexican looking people" and force them into these camps!

Say it can not be done? Your wrong, we did it to the Japanese during WW2.





Camp Harmony was the unofficial name of the Puyallup Assembly Center, a temporary facility within the system of internment camps set up for Japanese Americans during World War II. Approximately 7,390 Americans of Japanese descent in Washington state were sent to the camp before being sent to the Minidoka relocation center near Twin Falls, Idaho.

I will stand by the fact that every INDIVIDUAL member of any gang should be granted the same god-given rights as everybody else provided they are LEGAL members of this country. No Gang has constitutional rights.
Should they violate the law that's on their hands.
It might not make sense however to disaggregate US gangs and immigrants as many gangs are united by either ethnic or national identity.

Plans are still kept mostly underwraps, although looking at the statisitics it seems inevitable that DHS will be heavily involved.

news.yahoo.com...


The deployments are part of President Barack Obama's first moves to boost federal security sources on the U.S. side of the border



Texas Gov. Rick Perry's office said it had not received official notice of the reassignment of federal agents and could not comment.

Mexican officials say the violence spawned by warring drug cartels killed 6,290 people last year and more than 1,000 so far this year, mostly south of the border.
