Undeclared War on Mexican Border Greater Challenge than Afghanistan, Congressmen Say
Penny Starr CNSNews March 11, 2009
The violence along the U.S.-Mexico border is the biggest threat to the nations security, members of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security said at back-to-back hearings on Tuesday.
Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) thanked the witnesses, including David Aguilar, chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, for their service in an undeclared war.
I cant tell you how much I appreciate what all of you do, Culberson said. You truly are in our prayers on a daily basis.
Youre on the front lines of an undeclared war unlike any weve ever seen on the southern border probably since 1916, Culberson said, referring to Brig. Gen. John J. Pershings expedition into Mexico with 10,000 troops in an effort to capture the infamous revolutionary Pancho Villa after Villa had conducted attacks inside the United States.
