Generals' Report Calls for Tighter Border Security
A report released today by two retired generals highlights what they see as federal negligence toward drug cartel violence on American soil. The report was jointly commissioned by the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Texas Department of Public Safety. retired Army Major General Robert Scales, one of the co-authors, calls federal resources "anemic."
"This is not just about illegal aliens and border crossing," McCaffrey told reporters at a Capitol news conference this morning. "The activity of the cartels south of the border and their intentions constitutes a narco war."
In the report, Scales and General Barry McCaffrey concluded that federal funding should be used to increase manpower on the border. The entire report is available online on the Department of Agriculture’s website.
