A soldier of the Texas National Guard was attacked by a Mexican national who had illegally crossed the US border. The infantryman shot him. A US (supposedly) Representative had this to say:

Governor Greg Abbott’s reckless and political decision to place our National Guard service members in situations where they have no specialized training and for which they rarely – if ever – have jurisdiction makes an already challenging situation potentially dangerous,”

Sounds to me that the National Guard, who is supposed to protect the state from foreign invasion is perfectly trained and suited to this mission.

The decision to deploy the Guard on the border is neither political nor reckless. This incident is not a problem. All illegal border crossers should be turned back, by either Border Patrol or the National Guard or other local LEO, immediately upon discovery, at gun point if necessary. If they attack, shoot to kill.

The problem is that this is NOT happening more often.

The authorities charged with securing the border aren’t carrying weapons so they can shoot each other!

The Uniparty (CPUSA/Grand Old Politburo) views America as the enemy.
The designated loser of WWIII FUSA has already lost it all.
Nothing will come of this and comrade Abbott is WEF.

Huh, not really seeing the problem here… But then I suppose I have a slightly different perspective living in Texas…

For one thing, these invaders should have been perforated years ago. And they are foreign invaders, not migrants. They need to shoot a few more to set an example.

    A few more millions. Too many already are here and have spawned more spic scum. They all need to be removed whether trying to cross now or have been here for over forty years.

Invader escapes and when apprehended, not shot outright, attacks and is on the ground with the soldier. SOMEBODY is going to go for that pistol when they are on the ground and I’m damned glad it was the soldier who got it first. Unfortunately the soldier now has it all, including publicity by the sreaming-meemie press, hanging over his head. Abbott damned well better support his troop.

You miss-wrote “shoot a lot more to set an example”.

I still have my peacetime ROI for guard duty.
Attacking any military service member is a felony under federal law, and self defense is a valid reason for deadly force, according to all the uniformed services, the Pentagon, the DoD, and the entire chain of command.

And in return for a 30¢ round, that NG member just saved the taxpayers of the U.S. several hundred thousand dollars over the no-longer-life of that illegal alien.

If we had more incidents like this, we’d have less incidents like this.

Shame that NG wasn’t a Davos, that was target rich America hating environment.
