State lawmakers remain committed to more boots on the ground for border security

Opinions vary wildly on what Texans think needs to be done to secure the border. DPS Director Steve McCraw credited their surge this summer to cutting cartel traffic deeply, and Lawmakers are now waiting to see the impact of the National Guard surge. League City Councilwoman Heidi Theiss wants Governor Perry to call a special session to deal with the border,"We resist the federal government and their lawlessness and we resist their attempts to bring that into our communities here in Texas." Mexican American League Defense Fund's Salena Moreno says," Some of this harmful rhetoric has lead to unconstitutional ordinaces and increased vigilantism."
