NPT Drug War: Despite rhetoric, “The sky is not falling”
From NPR, a story titled Mexico Violence Not Spilling Into Texas Border Cities:
“The sky is not falling,” said McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez, who disagrees with Gov. Rick Perry’s decision to ask for troops. “What’s happening right now is we’ve got rhetoric that’s driving the policy.”
Some police chiefs of border cities are planning to share their concerns about having troops on the border with Perry at the Texas Homeland Security Conference on Tuesday. The conference includes law enforcement representatives from around the state and across the border.
