For some reason, the Left has a fetish for all things south of the border.
This is evident in their desire to flood the nation with folks from Latin America–Mexico in particular.
Their unwillingness to protect our borders and beef up enforcement has allowed the ultra-violent drug cartels to run rampant, and it’s resulted in the deaths of thousands of Mexicans–who they supposedly care so much about.
Since the Left has no desire to protect our border and fight the cartels, Ted Cruz has stepped up to the plate to offer a solution, and let’s just say liberals aren’t too happy with it.
As reported at the Angry Patriot Movement, during a recent interview, Cruz proposed a simple solution to the never-ending cycle of cartel violence.
He wants to use the US military to destroy them altogether.
Of course, doing so would require coordination and cooperation with the Mexican government, something that will be near impossible to get.
But Cruz’s proposal is the most sensible one offered to date, seeing how the Mexican government lacks the will of means to battle the cartels.
But there’s also the fact that Mexico is supremely corrupt, with the government and politicians being in bed with the very cartels slaughtering the people.
“Where crime and kidnapping becomes almost routine and the corruption that goes hand and hand with billions of dollars of illegal narcotic trafficking resources combined with vicious violent transnational criminal cartels has done enormous damage to Mexico and enormous damage to America,“ Cruz said.
He added, “What can we do about it? One of the things I think we should explore very seriously is something along the lines of what we did in Colombia: Plan Colombia.”
“Where President George W. Bush worked with President Uribe to target the cartels and take them out. It was treated less as a law enforcement matter than as a military matter. Where our military went into Colombia and helped destroy the cartels.”
There’s no question our military might could squash the cartels for good, but it’s ultimately up to Mexico.
The sad reality is, their government isn’t that bothered with the violent status quo, and is loathe to cooperate with the US on matters like these. It’s especially true now that Trump is office.
The US suffers a lot from the violence, as it spills across the border, but the real victims are the Mexicans.
If liberals truly care so much about them, it’s about time they back Cruz’s plan and use their powers to convince Mexico that extreme measure must be taken to put an end to the senseless bloodshed.
