Didn't we go to war over something similar back in the 1840s?
A U.S. Border Patrol entry Identification Team site was overrun Wednesday night along Arizona's border with Mexico.
According to the Border Patrol, an unknown number of gunmen attacked the site in the state's West Desert Region around 11 p.m. The site is manned by National Guardsmen. Those guardsmen were forced to retreat.
. . .
The Border patrol says the attackers quickly retreated back into Mexico.
Why were they forced to retreat? Aren't National Guard units armed? I would hope that our National Guard could hold its own in a firefight against drug runners and border coyotes.
And yet the rumors from D.C. are that funding for the wall will be cut by the new Democratic congress.
