Violence on the Border

A ThreatsWatch reader and blogger has relocated from the East Coast to San Antonio, Texas and has undertaken covering US Border Security and the situation he is witnessing from his new vantage point. Recently, he took a look at the violence in Nuevo Loredo, Mexico, a city up against the US-Mexico border that is the scene of a major drug cartel turf battle that routinely spills north of the border. With that as a backdrop, the US Border Patrol Tactical Unit gets a look. His post Border Security - BORTAC and the "Zetas" is worth reading, as is closer inspection of HR-4437: The Immigration and Nationality Act Amendment (Library of Congress)
