Paul Vallely – A Practical, Operational Plan to Secure the BordersPage 2 of 5
By the treaty of “Guadalupe-Hidalgo,”
signed February 2, 1848, at the close of the Mexican War, the Republic of Mexico was compelled to abandon its claim to Texas and to cede to theUnited States the territory now comprising most of New Mexico, Arizona, California,Colorado, Utah and Nevada. The territory ceded to the United States by Mexico constitutedabout 200,000 square miles, or two-fifths of all her territory.In return for this vast territory, the United States gave $15,000,000 and assumedresponsibility for paying $3,000,000 in claims of American citizens against the MexicanGovernment. Further, in an attempt to find a better way to transport displaced Indian tribes,James Gadsden,
on behalf of President Franklin Pierce, purchased a huge swath of land below the Gila River from Santa Ana, who as Dictator of Mexico was deposed soon after.Regardless of the many claims of groups today, the territorial boundaries were set in law. Thefact that the time in which all this took place was one of upheaval, bitter resentment, claimsgalore from all sides; it was incorporated into the present United States and is theinternationally-recognized border. Therefore, it is to be protected, just as Oregon, orMassachusetts, or Maine, or any other state, each with all their claims of original ownership by some groups, especially the indigent peoples of the early days.It is now time to enforce the rule of law, not to kowtow to special interest groups or claims by open-border believers and La Raza.
The fact is, the Citizens of the USA are in danger and are being killed because the border states of Mexico are controlled by thugs. Once again, theentire area is festooned with upheaval, violence, and lawlessness as it was in 1846. Thenorthern states in Mexico
: Baja California Norte, Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, NuevoLeon, and Tamaulipas, are under rogue control, and the Mexican police cannot control them.Therefore, it is in the national interest of the United States to invade and restore order because of this clear and present danger to US Citizens and our economy.If our federal government will not execute an operational plan to secure our southern borders, then the States and the people must do it. However, let me provide an executableplan of operations for the federal government to undertake with resolve and commitment toprotect and secure the American people.I do not have to take the time in this article to explain to the readers the threat and theproblems on and across our southern borders of California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas,as it is on the news every day. You would have to live in a perpetual and virtual cave not toknow the situation. We have a war of gigantic proportions…illegal invasions, treacherous drugcartels, gangs, human trafficking, drugs (is there not a war on drugs???), smuggling,kidnappings, and corruption of officials on both sides of the borders. Now if I were theCommander-in-Chief, I would be on a war-footing and I would have my military commandersplanning and executing a strategy that will defeat swiftly and decisively these cancerousenemies.The plan is basic and advanced unconventional/conventional war planning. This combinesthe best use of our forces that will encompass intelligence, targeting, and structuralorganization to accomplish the mission, base operations, offensive and defensive operations.First, organize three (3) Border Task Force Groups (BTFGs) and position them in threeoperational bases: one in Texas, one in Arizona and one in Southern California. We haveexisting bases in those states that can be used. There is no requirement to create any new
