Barr joinedLo que realmente dicen los libros infantiles a los que Ted Cruz hizo referencia en la audiencia de confirmación de Ketanji Brown Jacksonto discuss his new book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” and commented on new scenes of fiery carnage in Nuevo Laredo and other towns just stonesthrows from the United States.

Barr, who served under Presidents George H. W. Bush and Donald Trump, le dijo al anfitrión Jesse Watters that border security was a jointprincipal concernof his and Trump’s — and that border czar Kamala Harris is failing at her role.

The cartels have tens of billions of dollars at their disposal. They can corrupt anyone they want to down there, and they have armies — literally armies that are increasingly paramilitary — dressed like military, and armored cars.

Barr recounted an attempt to arrest Ovidio Guzman Lopez, son of violent cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, in that the cartel summoned 700 paramilitary troops with machine guns mounted on trucks to rebuff law enforcement.
