The Arizona Republic acknowledges in a front-page story today that our border agents are at increasing risk of violent attack. According to one agent:
“The smugglers are getting more brazen. They don’t want to lose their loads. They’ll do whatever they have to.”
Certainly by now the problem has been made known to our federal and state leaders. The notion that the most powerful nation on earth still can’t manage to stop this ongoing, brazen smuggling of drugs and humans into the United States – and that we are putting the lives of our outgunned and outmanned border agents at risk — is ridiculous.
