Think Texas: New website gives Texans a voice on Texas/Mexico border violence

For years now, landowners along the Texas/Mexico border have been victims of threats, violence and intimidation by illegal drug and human trafficking activity spilling over into Texas.
Although Washington refuses to acknowledge the growing war along the border, I want to assure you the voices of Texans are now being heard through www.ProtectYourTexasBorder.com, a website that documents real examples of the intimidation and criminal activity taking place on Texas soil.
Most Americans rightly believe their government will protect them when they are on U.S. soil. Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion…” Unfortunately, law enforcement personnel along the Texas/Mexico border are out-gunned and out-numbered, and Washington is not heeding the call to provide sufficient federal backup. President Obama’s own Secretary of Homeland Security has even suggested the border is safer than ever. I refuse to accept that the word “safe” can be used to describe life along the Texas/Mexico border when we have documented stories of foriegn criminals encroaching on our land and terrorizing Texans on U.S. soil.
Like the many Texans who already have come forward to tell the truth about the border, I encourage you to share your stories, videos and photos on www.ProtectYourTexasBorder.com to provide tangible proof that enhanced federal protection for American citizens is long overdue. Please join me in continuing to put pressure on Washington. It’s past time for our federal leaders to uphold their responsibility and provide Texas with the resources to fight this growing war and secure our border.
The federal government has an obligation to protect its citizens, and through your true testimonies on www.ProtectYourTexasBorder.com, we will shine a light on an issue that has been kept in the dark too long.
