Federal prosecutors say a border county businessmen has pleaded guilty to role in an Eagle Pass bid-rigging scheme.
Two brothers in South Texas have been sentenced to prison in a weapons and ammunition smuggling case linked to a Mexican drug cartel.
A coalition of Texas border mayors, county executives and economic development leaders said on Thursday the federal government has spent nearly $90 billion over the past decade to secure the Southwest border with no better than mixed results.
"Our national success depends on defining and executing a strategy to defeat the cartels attacking our nation," said Eagle Pass, Texas, Mayor and TBC Chairman Ramsey Cantu. "Without a strategy, America will continue to lose the border security war to the better financed, equipped, more mobile and agile drug cartels."
