Gov. Bobby Jindal goes to Mexico border for firsthand look

  // Sunday, 03 August 2014 02:09 //

BATON ROUGE Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will join state police officials and the speaker of Louisiana's House in a trip to the Mexican border for a security briefing and tour by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The trip, which starts Monday, will be the second Col. Mike Edmonson has made to the McAllen area to discuss border security issues that affect Louisiana residents.

The state police superintendent says illegal drugs, illegal weapons and immigrants without official permission all affect Louisiana daily.

Top officials from Troop Operations, Criminal Patrol Operations and SWAT/Aviation Operations also are going, as is House Speaker Chuck Kleckley.

Kleckley says that besides being speaker, he represents and lives in southwest Louisiana, a likely entry for any criminals coming from Mexico through Texas to Louisiana.
