According to a press release dated Oct. 7, Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) will chair a hearing of the Homeland Security Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee Oct. 14 to present to Congress a comprehensive military assessment of the U.S.-Mexico border, authored by General Barry McCaffrey (Ret) and General Bob Scales, Ph.D. (Ret). Both Generals and Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples, who commissioned the report, will testify.

The report, Texas Border Security: A Strategic Military Assessment, demonstrates that Mexican drug cartels are attempting to establish safe havens in Texas as a launching point into the rest of the United States. Among the findings the hearing will examine:

Ø Cartels’ intention to influence all levels of government throughout the Americas
Ø Cartels’ intention to establish sanctuary zones in the U.S. one county deep
Ø Poorly resourced U.S. tactical efforts to stop cartel incursions; vulnerability to corruption
Ø Increasing likelihood that competition to control distribution territories and corridors will result in greater violence in Texas, as the Mexican military gains more control in Mexico
Ø The need to designate Mexican drug cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations
