News of three arrests in a cartel hit in El Paso is raising questions about drug violence spilling over into El Paso.
Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano spoke out on the issue at the UTEP campus.
Napolitano would not comment on the cartel hit here in El Paso, but says she has been in close contact with local law enforcement and according to them, spillover violence is not a problem.
Napolitano says if it appears there is a spike in spillover violence, she would weigh several options, including putting troops on the border.
