Mexican drug cartels have conducted military-style training camps in at least six such locations in northern Tamaulipas and Nuevo León states, some within a few miles of the Texas border, according to U.S. and Mexican authorities and the printed testimony of five protected witnesses who were trained in the camps.
U.S. officials estimate the hundreds of terrorist assassins have been trained at these camps.
It's all part of a strategy by drug cartels to intimidate their enemies and assert control over besieged communities along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border
Officials estimate that over 5000 people have been killed across the U.S. in the last two years as a result.
The training is extensive and includes the use of such weapons as AK-47 assault rifles, AR-15s, grenade launchers and .50-caliber machine guns, according to the testimony and U.S. officials.
Clearly there are no valid reasons to secure our border. After all, it is just poor migrant workers who are crossing it illegally.
