Texas Lt. Governor, David Dewhurst, has been asking the federal government for help in defending its border, but he is now convinced no help is coming.
Yet, a government's most basic duty is National Security!
He says, "This is an issue of National Security and States' rights."
He plans to defend his State against drug and sex traffickers. Why can't the federal government protect its citizenry in the same way Texas is doing?
Texas is spending $5 million per month to protect its citizenry rights to border security. Texas will actually be using its tax dollars to help the people.
It has done the following to defend its border:
1. added more law enforcement officers,
2. purchased high-altitude spotter planes,
3. purchased six Department of Public Safety helicopters,
4. and six armored gunboats to patrol the Rio Grande River.
