Obama administration wants to guard border to stop US guns from going to Mexico
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the Obama administration would soon unveil a plan for dealing with rising violence along the U.S.-Mexico border, including more resources to stem the flow of dollars and guns to warring drug gangs, the Wall Street Journal reported.
"I think there will be some announcements with some specifics that either I or the president will be making in the coming weeks," Napolitano said Friday during an interview.
Napolitano said the plan would include more resources aimed at stopping U.S.-acquired firearms and cash earned from illicit drug sales flowing back across the border. Money and guns are fueling the escalating violence in Mexico that is spilling into U.S. communities, including in Arizona. Napolitano was the state's governor before joining the Obama cabinet. . . . .
