No wall here either, debate all you want, we need one. This is the first one of the two.

Manufactured crisis.

Liberals will be the ruin of this country. Or perhaps the patriots of this country will step up before itís too late.

Heard the army is setting up camp in Del Rio. Hopefully they are headed down to help out.

By "arrived", you mean dropped off by the bus load, of course.

An improvised shelter was set up for the migrants at an unused maquiladora factory, and local officials said the migrants had been given sleeping mats, blankets, food and wireless access.

Wireless accessories... really?? Are these leftover 0bama phones?? Who's paying that bill?? I didn't realize that wireless accessories are included in life or death supplies...

Follow the money. I'll bet a bundle lots of it leads to Soros. The man is pure evil. He's bragged publicly that he enjoys taking down governments and whole countries. Creating this kind of crisis and divisiveness is what he relishes the most.

Well, my GF who is in the State Guard just got queried if she can deploy within 15 days. Gov Abbott just appropriated 12.4 million to go to the Texas State Guard. I guess things are starting to heat up a bit.

The Mexican politicians are getting kickbacks from the Cartels. They also don't want to get killed for interrupting the Cartels human trafficking business.

I'd venture to say that we are serious about protecting the TEXAS border, but.... I'd also venture to say that the posted photographs are not 100% relative to the situation in the Del Rio sector... I'v VERY familiar with that section of the river as I hunted along it for over 30 years... for a lot of reasons, that big ol speed boat would be about as useless as tits on a boar hog in most of that run of the river... Heck, the border patrol has trouble with air boats and shallow water in that run. Ain't no way that big deep draft speed boat and all those outboards will run there. And then there's this little issue of the "Maverick Dam" that crosses the river about 1/2 way between Del Rio and Eagle Pass. It diverts water to irrigate The Rio Grande Valley in a canal system that was built many years ago on the old Moody Ranch.... Sure is impressive show of TEXAS force and might where ever the photos were taken...

I don't know why they don't look at the data from other walls throughout history. Walls work. Look at the statistics. They built one in China over a thousand years ago and one in Germany just in this last century. Not a single Mexican crossed them.

There is no crisis at the border. Total bs according to democraps. 1000's walking across at McAllen everyday and all alone the border. Build that **** wall now If they wait much longer they'll have to put the wall at the Red river.

I bet all of those caravan people make a great cover for the cartel folks bringing drugs over.

Haven't heard any updates on the news about this story. Did all the "better lifers" go back home?

I just recently came back from a mid Feb. hog hunt on a ranch southwest of Asherton. Didn't see a single wet coming thru this time. Coming home early on a Sunday morning bout daylight into the edge of Carrizo Springs there was a raid going down on what appeared to be a safe house at the edge of town on hwy 186. About 10 to 12 LEOs from BP to DPS, sheriff and local PD. They had a few on the ground outside in plastic cuffs. No idea if it was drug bust or illegals.
