Congressional Testimony On Border Security Live On Paltalk
The overflow of the Mexican drug gang wars into the United States is of great concern to those responsible for Homeland Security.
There have been rampant kidnappings on the streets of Phoenix. The Texas border with Mexico is dangerous. The mayor of Juarez, Mexico is hiding out in El Paso. Mexican gang killings are taking place as far away from the border as Atlanta. And U.S. Border Patrol agents are interdicting vehicles leaving the United States for Mexico with guns and ammunition.
On Thursday March 12 at 10 AM New York time, Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA), chair of the House Subcommittee on Border, Maritime and Global Counterterrorism will hold a hearing examining violence at the U.S./Mexico Border. We will be bringing you that hearing live on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com. The hearing will also be Congress' first major look into the Mexican drug war.
Witnesses will testify about the border violence, the areas affected and the ramifications of violence spreading onto U.S. soil. Of interest is the ongoing and planned response of Homeland Security.
The witnesses will also be asked about southbound gunrunning from the United States into Mexico.
