Mr. Speaker, Juarez, Mexico is one of the most dangerous cities in the world experiencing a fierce turf war between drug cartels.
More than 3,000 people were killed there in 2010.
THREE triple homicides occurred this past weekend.
Also, two American teenagers, Carlos Mario Gonzalez Bermudez and Juan Carlos Echeverri, were brutally murdered in the weekend shootings.
Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas, as well as the rest of the border is a lawless warzone controlled by the violent drug cartels.
Despite the continued loss of American life, the United States government refuses to admit that there is a war on our border.
This violence is a lethal cancer and it is spreading quickly into the United States.
The narco-terrorists do not recognize international lines.
This is a matter of national security and it is the responsibility of the federal government to protect our border.
Meanwhile, the administration has proposed a whopping 53 billion dollars in high speed rail subsidies.
Instead of more choo-choo trains, that money should go towards national border security defense.
And thats just the way it is.
