Gunmen from some of Mexico’s notorious drug cartels have reportedly been taunting soldiers of the Texas national guard tasked with guarding the US Southern Border.
As The Daily Wire reports:
On Wednesday, a report surfaced that gunmen for the drug cartels south of the American border have been taunting Texas National Guard soldiers by standing across the Rio Grande with AK-47s.
Bill Melugin of FOX News tweeted, “It was reported that in multiple instances over the past several days, Texas DPS tells me suspected cartel gunmen involved in human smuggling have stood in & near the Rio Grande in Starr County and taunted TX National Guard soldiers. They wear tac vests & have AK47s.”

Texas GOP Governor Greg Abbott tweeted earlier this week, “Texas National Guard is gearing up at the border for increased caravans attempting to cross the border caused by Biden’s open border policy. They are working with the Texas Dept. of Public Safety to seal surge locations at the border & arrest trespassers.”
Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott said on Wednesday night, “It’s basically — think like football. Basically they fake a play over here and the real play’s going to the left. So when we get distracted with 15 to 20,000 Haitians under a bridge, that resulted in several hundred miles of border having no border agents on it at all. That’s where the cartels push the narcotics through; the criminal aliens, people that will not give up. We have over 400,000 documented ‘gotaways,’ people or incidents where people crossed the border and got away this past year; hundreds of miles of border where we have no idea what took place. That’s what mass migration creates.”
