    Gov. Rick Perry today announced that the state will put Ranger Reconnaissance teams along the Texas-Mexico border.
    The teams are comprised of Texas Rangers and Texas National Guard Counterdrug forces. According to Perry’s office, the teams “will identify high-intensity smuggling routes in remote areas, and conduct operations to reduce border-related crime in these corridors. These activities are also an essential element of a proactive strategy to deter spillover violence.”
    Perry’s office did not release the specific number, composition or location of the teams.
    He also reiterated his request that the Obama administration allow 1,000 members of the National Guard to support civilian law enforcement near the border.
    By drawing attention to border security, Perry is able to criticize Washington as he is running for re-election against U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

    Rangers are not ones to mess with, cowboy knows for sure. The border is not a place to be at this time.
