Cartels Seek to Overwhelm Southern Border, Threaten Americans—Rep. Michael Cloud
Jan Jekielek
April 4, 2019 Updated: April 5, 2019
With President Trump talking about closing the U.S.-Mexico border, what is the current state of the crisis there? What role do violent cartels play in this crisis, and how do they exploit loopholes in America’s border security?  And how does all of this affect everyday Americans living near the border?

On this episode of American Thought Leaders we sit down with Congressman Michael Cloud, who represents the 27th District, in southern Texas.

Jan Jekielek: So, let’s dive right in and talk about the border. Your district is one of the southernmost districts in Texas. And, recently, we’ve been talking about these almost extreme sounding measures like actually closing the border—the Mexican border. What are your thoughts on this?

Rep. Michael Cloud: Well, we definitely have a critical situation at the border. We knew that months ago those of us who live in south Texas actually have known that for years, but it’s only escalated. And who would have thought that we’d have 100,000 migrants in a month come across the border last month—80,000 a month before that. And we’re just not set up for that. We’re not staffed for that, we don’t have the resources for that. It’s a critical situation, very critical situation that needs our attention here in Congress.

This is why a border heavily fortified with U.S. troops is an absolute necessity.
