Mexican Drug Cartel: U.S. Rep and Sheriff Talk Tough on Keeping Them Out of Houston

Categories: Crime

The Mexican drug cartels didn't reckon on McCaul and Garcia.
U.S. Representative Mike McCaul and Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia met today and said they are going to do whatever it takes to stop Mexican drug cartels from coming to Houston.

Because we want our coke and weed from American drug cartels, dammit!!!

McCaul chairs the House Homeland Security Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, so he has some say on where the border-protection money goes.

"The major concern is the same kind of violence seen in Mexico will occur here in the United States," he said. "The sheriff and I talked about operations he has been working on in terms of gang violence and how to stop the cartels from taking over routes in the United States. We also talked about his participation with the national counterterrorism center in Washington and his efforts in working with Mexico in getting better intelligence coming out of Mexico."

Said Garcia of the cartel members: "We'll put their butts in jail. We don't want them in Harris County, and we don't want them to bring harm and we don't want them to deteriorate our quality of life."

The bad economy in Mexico is because of NAFTA. Corporations like Wal-mart and subsidized corn from the US caused tons of small farms and businesses to go out of business. Those are 2 examples. Mexico has got to get out of NAFTA and be more self-sufficient. The drug war is happening because Mexicans have nowhere to work but the drug trade. If you starve the drug cartels of workers because of a good economy, they'll collapse.


They're already here and there is already violence. It's going to get much worse, very quickly too.


Yes, throw them in jail... 'cause that's worked just awesomely so far, right?
