As Feds Plan to Cut Border Monitoring, Texas Officials Ask Why
[TX Tribune] Gov. Greg Abbott and U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Laredo Democrat, pressed the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday to explain why the agency plans to reduce its aerial surveillance on the Texas-Mexico border.

In a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, the lawmakers said the cut to a requested 3,850 hours of aerial detection and monitoring in 2016 amounts to 50 percent less coverage than recent years.

"Given the recent surge of migrants from Central America and Cuba along the southern border, we believe DHS should request more surveillance and security resources, not fewer," Abbott and Cuellar wrote in a letter.

The pair also reminded Johnson that in September, Abbott's office asked the DHS for more aerial resources and U.S. Border Patrol agents but that the request was never acknowledged.

A DHS spokesperson said the agency would respond "directly" to the governor and the congressman.

#1 1) Because the bad Republicans wouldn't give us more money.
2) Because it doesn't need as much monitoring anymore, since the immigrants are all now obeying the law.

#2 Well, you see, it all has to do with Chicago. Gotta keep the narcotics flowing into that city as well as places like Baltimore and Washington DC. That way the junkies that don't OD will shoot each other in drug dealing turf wars. Gotta keep the natives busy so the new immigrants can take their jobs. Besides, it's quite lucrative.

#4 As Feds Plan to Cut Border Monitoring, Texas Officials Ask Why

"...Well, two reasons: first, because when we monitor, we keep getting data we really don't want to get. Second, because f#@k you, Red border states."

#5 Among other reasons, under OWG NAU Immigration focii will switch from the Tex-Mex border to Mexico's borders wid the Lower Americas.

MEXICO + MEXICO CITY WILL HAVE THE BALL, NOT ANY LONGER TEXAS OR WASHINGTON.

OTOH the OWG Globies have not answered the questionne' as to where or what [neutral] city will be the Tr-Nation Capital of the new future NAU, by + for same.

* OWG-NWO + GLOBALISM = CO-SUPERPOWER-TO-CO-SUPERPOWER "PARITY" WID THE US [albeit likely "rough" parity], NOT "INFERIORITY" TO THE US.

BY EXTENSION, SAFE TO SAY DITTO AS PER OWG- GLOBAL-FEDERAL-UNION-TO-OWG-GLOBAL-FEDERAL-UNION
IRREGARDLESS OR REGION OR TRANS-REGION, CONTINENT OR TRANS-CONTINENTS???

The Globies can't have any of the above iff the Sole Global Superpower US is still a or t-h-e Sole Global Superpower in the World, now can they???

D *** NG IT, SOMEONE HAS TO SURRENDER LIKE FRANCE, AND IT CAN'T BE THE FRENCH [or Hard Boyz + Global Caliphate?] - HHMMM, HHHMMM, WHOM CAN IT BE!?
