Governor Abbott recently wrote President Biden urging the White House to classify Mexican cartels as foreign terrorist organizations. With the Baker Institute at Rice University, Gary Hale says that designation means the U.S. military would have the right to kill cartel members on U.S. soil and elsewhere. He says that could harm our relationship with Mexico. Hale understands the Governor’s frustration, especially since cartel members are helping hundreds of illegal immigrants get to the border. He added that dealing with cartel members should be left to law enforcement and not the military.
