Obama in Denial While Mexican Drug Cartels Terrorize His Hometown

President Obama has joked that Texas needs a moat and alligators to secure its border with Mexico. While the President makes light of our porous and dangerous border, however, gangs directly affiliated with Mexican drug cartels are infiltrating the streets of his hometown of Chicago.

In a recent CBS News report, a federal agent says the daily turf wars between Chicago gangs are turning parts of the city into a Mexican border town.

"We know that the majority of the drugs here in Chicago, cartels are responsible for,” said Jack Riley, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration Office in Chicago.

You also may have seen the national headlines reporting shooting deaths in Chicago are up 30 percent from last year.

These alarming statistics reinforce the increasing calls from law enforcement across the nation that it is time for the federal government to get serious about securing the U.S./Mexico border, stopping the flow of drugs, and defeating the drug cartels who are obviously taking root in American cities.

Perhaps this recent news will finally hit home for the president and serve as a wake-up call to Washington. Only time and action will tell.
