The whole idea is nonsense, Congressman Poe said about Operation Gun Runner. "A thousand or more of those weapons have gone to Mexico." Of course the ATF has not been able to trace those guns.
We also discussed the hesitation of Border Patrol Agents to act in their own defense because of prior wreckless prosecutions of Border Patrol Agents by former US Attorney Johnny Sutton. This could be part of the reason why Border Patrol Agents are taking "bean bag weapons" to the gunfight along our southern border. Congressman Poe discusses this in the following video.
On Border Security, Congressman Poe has proposed a resolution named the "National Guard Border Enforcement Act". This bill calls for deployment of 10,000 National Guard troops along the US/Mexico border. The troops would be paid for by the federal government, but would remain under the control of the border state governors. This would enable the troops to retain law enforcement authority while guarding our border.
We went on to discuss the economic war being waged by the Obama Adminstration against Texas. This can be illustrated by looking at the examples of economic warfare by this administration against the Lone Star State. These include cutting back NASA, refusal to place a Space Shuttle in Houston, the cutting of the BAE Systems Armored Vehicle plant in Sealy, Texas, the offshore drilling ban, and the recent refusal to allow federal disaster assistance for the fire stricken areas of Texas.
Congressman Poe encouraged voters to stay in touch with their legislators to make sure they are following their will as voters.

Congressman Poe is a great example of the kind of leadership our country is missing. His "get things done" style of leadership should be a lesson to other members of Congress, especially the leadership in Congress. It was a great opportunity to meet with Congressman Poe and lean more about his actions on our behalf.
