Ice Chief Janet Napolitano announces huge Mexican border deployment

by Michael Webster: Syndicated Investigative Rep Thursday, Mar. 26, 2009 at 12:15 PM 949 494-7121

An insider of the Calderon camp told the U.S. Border Fire Report that help is needed at the Mexican ports of entry mainly because the current Mexican border guards are looking the other way and allowing contraband to enter his country.

By MICHAEL WEBSTER: Syndicated Investigative Reporter. March 24, 2009 at 11:45 PM PST.

The US Homeland agency head Janet Napolitano of Arizona has ordered a massive new deployment of federal agents from many departments such as DEA, FBI, AFT, Border Patrol, US Customs, as well as other named and un-named agencies to the U.S. Mexican border. In a bid to combat Mexican Drug Cartel smuggling operations and reduce the movement of drugs coming into the country and stopping arms and drug cash entering Mexico from the U.S.

Washington appears poised to bolster its border protection forces along the border with Mexico from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico some 3000-plus kilometer (2000 mile) This move to shore up our borders with Mexico is President Barack Obama's first major domestic security initiative. This action many Americans feel is long over due and is lift wondering why the Bush administration never did it.

It is believed the plan was hatched earlier this month during the first visit of a head of state to the U.S. under the Obama administration where Mexican President Felipe Caldron asked President Obama to assist his country at the border to help stop the flow of arms and cash into Mexico from the states.

An insider of the Calderon camp told the U.S. Border Fire Report that help is needed at the Mexican ports of entry mainly because the current Mexican border guards are looking the other way and allowing contraband to enter his country. “The Mexican border guards will look the other way for anyone entering the country who offers a bribe.”

Another official said “its part of the culture Mexican border guards for a hundred American dollars will let anything into our country.”

A DEA agent told the U.S. Border Fire Report that “the U.S. will be doing the job at the border that the Mexicans can not or will not do.”

The deployment of hundreds of U.S. Law enforcement to our border with Mexico is expected to cost more than the estimated 0,000 projected by the U.S. Government.

Critics of the operation say the effort will only cause the smugglers to start crossing the border by crossing the river where there are no guards and will not use the border crossing check points.

A Luna County Deputy Sheriff in Deming New Mexico just north of the Mexican border was over heard saying “this action will not stop the smuggling of weapons and dollars into Mexico; they can get all the weapons they want from many other countries around the world.”

The U.S. Border Fire Report in the past has reported that some of the arms being used in Mexico’s civil war are already being supplied by China.

The U.S. State Department indicates that Iran, North Korea, China and Russia along with other states are known to provide weapons to buyers all around the world. The Mexican Drug Cartels will be able to buy what ever they need and can afford.

The impending plan comes as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prepares to visit to Mexico tomorrow.

Her trip is to be followed next week by a visit from US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric Holder.

Those high-profile visits are designed to pave the way and to set the stage for a summit in Mexico between President Obama and Mexican President Calderon on April 16 and 17 of next month.

Mounting drug violence in both countries and the lose of thousands of lives in northern Mexico and with kidnappings and killings of Americans on both sides of the border has emerged as a fully-fledged national security threat for the United States.

If this action does not work Obama said earlier this month that the government was considering deploying the National Guard to the border to prevent spillover from the bloody drug wars.

The governor of the border state of Texas, Rick Perry, last month asked the president to deploy 1,000 soldiers as a precaution in his state alone.

In Mexico more than 7000 thousand people have been killed since Mexican President Calderon ordered Mexican troops to cities and towns in Mexico and to most cities along the border with the U.S. all, amid the Mexican government's crackdown on warring cartels.
