Republicans Propose Bill to Treat Mexican Drug Cartels as ‘Terrorist Insurgency’

Republicans Propose Bill to Treat Mexican Drug Cartels as ‘Terrorist Insurgency’ – Calling the situation along the U.S. border a “threat to national security,” a House committee Thursday took up a bill sponsored by Republican congressmen that would treat Mexican drug cartels like terrorists and apply a counterinsurgency strategy to the growing violence along the Southern border.

Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) introduced H.R. 3401 the “Enhanced Border Security Act” on Nov. 9 to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, stop criminal access to U.S. financial institutions, and work with Mexico to implement counterinsurgency tactics to undermine the control of the drug cartels in the country.

The bill would also double the number of Border Patrol agents, and provide additional infrastructure to secure the border, including “tactical double layered fencing.”

“A terrorist insurgency is being waged along our Southern border,” said Mack, during the mark up of the bill in the Western Hemisphere subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where he serves as chairman.

I must have missed this story from CNSNews last week.

Apparently, the mainstream media must have missed it too, but do you know WHY the MSM didn’t cover this?

Because the media only reports what Barack Hussein Obama and his evil regime want to have reported, that’s why!

Think Fast and Furious, think about the possibility that Obama and Company are in bed with the Mexican drug cartels, on several levels.

Think about the implications related to this story: Holder was responsible for 168 deaths in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing…and more and how it could relate to the Obama regime, particularly Eric Holder, Deputy Attorney General under Clinton and Attorney General under Barack Hussein Obama.

It’s up to Conservative bloggers to keep folks advised on matters like this, and it’s up to people like you, OUR readers, the REAL Patriots, to support men of honor and integrity like Rep. Connie Mack as he attempts to fight the EVIL that IS Obama and Company.

    About time they started to wake up. The Obamanation is just not doing anything so he and his Socialists can get re elected. The border situation is a national disgrace as is Obama and Holder. Congress has no guts-this should not be a partisan issue.

  2. Shady says:

    I want to say it is about time or better late than never. This bill should be law NOW, at this very minute, I would be willing to bet that this bill will die somewhere between the house and the senate, and will never get an up or down vote.

    I read a post moments ago where someone said the border violence is down and crime in the border are are completely down across the board. Now of course this more than likely is a tree hugging libber, who had no idea of our situation, none at all and has no ideas of the incursions that happen daily and go unnoticed.

    Just recently the DPS is going to be using ARMED PT style patrol boats to patrol our borders, at least Perry is doing something about stopping the incursions of our borders, the anointed one OBAMA HAS NOT DONE ONE STINKING THING.

    It’s about damn time! We should include the Crips, the Bloods, the Democrats, etc…

    Merry Christmas Fred!

  4. Bunkerville says:

    The time is now. Lots of luck in the Senate as long as Reid rules the roost. His days are numbered if the GOPers can keep their heads about themselves.

  5. Patrick Sperry says:

    Kimbers, Springfield’s, Glocks, and…? Oh yeah! What does it take for all these things? Money, as the late great Basti always said; Follow the money.

    What generates said funds?

    What is the Conservative approach or solution to this?

    What did William F. Buckley Jr. say about the drug war?

    I will most probably piss in a few folks Cheerios here. So be it. I am sick and tired of Americans getting killed over what amounts to an invasion of liberty and freedom while at the same time making gazillionaires out of thugs. And no, it’s not worth it if it saves just one life. Not when the cost is thousands of lives. That friends, as well as enemies, is the cold hearted face of philosophical Libertarian thinking.

  6. Steve Dennis says:

    The propaganda arm of the Obama regime doesn’t want this story out there because it goes against their mantra that it is America’s fault that border is violent as they continue to push gun control in light of the Fast and Furious scandal. Anything that indicts the Mexican drug lords will be hushed up and ignored by the media because they will do anything to protect Dear Leader.

  7. BobF says:

    If the drug cartels are classified as terrorist organizations, they would the US be labeled as a nation that supports terrorism? After all, our justice department did provide them arms.
