 County Judge Sets The Record Straight In The NY Times

EL PASO - County Judge Veronica Escobar wrote a column for the New York Times, to ensure people that our border is safe despite what Governor Rick Perry is saying.

On the campaign trail, Governor Perry has said that El Paso is not safe. He's even told people, before, that bombs have exploded on our streets.

"On the national stage, border counties like ours are getting beaten up and mischaracterized, and there's this myth being created about us. So, it's great to be able to debunk the myth," Judge Escobar said.

As you know, it's not easy to get published in the New York Times, so Judge Escobar was ecstatic.

She says she hopes people will now look at our border for what it truly is, an asset to the Texas and National economy.

Judge Escobar says she has not heard from Governor Perry since the article came out on Thursday.

Come on hard to get leftwing views printed in the New York Times,she is wrong,NYT will print anything true or not to help leftwing open Border Advocates
and she is in the forefront of Illegal living in El Paso,La Raz, and Sanctuary Cities

If we have learned anything from liberals and conservatives it is that the truth never matters. Preception IS reality. Until the people wake up and we rid ourselves of Republicans and Democrates and elect people who represent the people and not their parties nothing will ever change. Including the preception of our city.

If there is no spillover violence then why did Mexican law enforcement and U.S. law enforcement have a training exercise a few days ago?

Kudos to Judge Escobar for setting the record straight and stating the truth and not the political hyperbole that Governor Perry keeps harping on about El Paso (I am trying to be polite to the Governor even though I do not like him because of his continous false statements regarding how stubornly he is portraying El Paso).
