We do, now more than ever.
U.S. Border Patrol agents came under fire twice, returning fire once, Wednesday night while trying to capture suspected marijuana smugglers who later abandoned more than a half million dollars worth of marijuana. No border patrol agents were hit by the gunfire, said Senior Patrol Agent Sean King, a border patrol spokesman here. The shootings started after a border camera monitor spotted a Mercedes Benz SUV at 7:05 p.m. heading north from the border along a dirt road near the KS Ranch, about six miles southeast of Nogales and about a half mile north of the border, King said.
While the blow-hards in the Senate debate the meaning of the word “amnesty”, we’ve got border patrol agents whose lives are endangered by careless drug smugglers who don’t think twice about unloading a rain of bullets on them just so they can sell their hooch in our country.
Forget about those National Guard “minders” – we need tanks, lots of tanks.
