Arizona isn’t the only state with violence spilling over from Mexican drug gangs.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott today demanded that President Obama send more troops to the Texas-Mexico border and used the shots that hit El Paso City Hall as an example of increased violence on the border.

Abbott said in a letter that the seven shots that hit City Hall in El Paso were an example of the violence that is plaguing the border area and that sending 1,200 National Guard soldiers to the entire U.S.-Mexico border is not enough.

He also cited the violence in Juarez and said that Americans lives are at risk.

“More than 1,300 people have been murdered in Juárez this year as a war continues relentlessly between the Juárez and Sinaloa drug cartels,” he told Obama.

He also said the “time for talk has passed.” (Source: El Paso Times)

Another example of why the fence needs to be built now!  And why federal immigration laws need to be enforced!
