Today, however, there’s a different kind of outlaw roaming the expanses of the desert Southwest. And the danger those drug and human smugglers pose to people who live and work along the border with Mexico is very real. Arizona rancher Robert Krentz was killed by a suspected illegal immigrant in March 2010 while checking fences and water.
Which brings us to the ongoing debate over President Trump’s promise to build a barrier along the southern border. I’m not going to delve into the politics of that debate in this blog. Instead, I’ll share an enlightening report from NBC’s Simone Boyce, who visits with ranchers living along the southern border who feel that President Trump’s border wall would help keep them and their families safe.
As both ranchers clearly say, it’s time for our elected representatives to move past the politics and find the political will to develop immigration reform.
If the past is any indication, however, the nation’s drug crisis along with industries like agriculture that rely on immigrant labor will continue to be trampled as Democrats and Republicans play their petty political games. And that’s a shame.
All unclassified Army and Marine Cops manuals and correspondence courses are products of the US Federal Government. They are NOT subject to copyright and can be freely copied and redistributed.
The Marine Corps Institute (MCI) develops correspondence courses for Marines with all kinds of Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) on all manner of subjects. This is one of those courses.
The print is relatively small because that is the way it was in the original and this is an exact reproduction. Also, as a tribute to the individual (and a touch of reality), you will notice that the editorial pencil marks and underlined passages that were put there by the Marine that took this course. They were intentionally left in the reproduction.
This version of the course was authorized in September of 1984. With the exception the development of Infrared technology, it contains information and techniques that have changed very little since the Vietnam war. These battle proven tactics are as valid today as they were in Quang Nam province in 1968.
They will maintain their validity during the upcoming inevitable event of total economic, political and social collapse. Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. jtl, 419
