Gov. Bill Richardson promises to use National Guard to secure border.


From Canadian Free Press

Gov. Richardson said: I want residents in Southern New Mexico to know we are taking this border violence very seriously by adding the National Guard presence along with state, local and federal law enforcement patrols along the border.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has deployed Texas Military Force helicopters to the border, but he has not deployed the Texas National Guard to the border. While the helicopter deployment is a welcome development, it is clearly not enough to help secure the border in a meaningful way.

These actions by Gov. Richardson and Perry are long overdue in the battle to stop the illegal entry of all immigrants that break the law. How many people have died before Robert Krentz because of the effects of simply not enforcing our own immigration laws? How many more have to die because as a nation we simply are not demanding our national and state governments to protect us from all enemies foreign or domestic?

The family of slain Arizona rancher Robert Krentz released a statement, and for the first time, officially alleged that he was murdered by an illegal alien, although the statement does not go into details of their allegation. In the statement, the family calls for increased manpower and resources on the border.
