|00:00:00||THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.|
|00:00:01||WHEN THEY HAVE A PLAN TO SEIZE AMERICAN SOIL, THAT'S AN INVASION.|
|00:00:05||IF IT'S HAPPENING IN TEXAS, IT'LL HAPPEN IN OTHER STATES.|
|00:00:09||I'VE HAD THE PLEASURE TWICE NOW TO GO TO THE BORDER IN THE GREAT STATE OF ARIZONA.|
|00:00:14||TO BE HONEST, AT LEAST WE HAVE A RIVER BETWEEN US AND THEM.|
|00:00:17||WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SOME OF THE FENCES BEING BUILT IN ARIZONA, I'VE SEEN THE OLD FENCE AND IT WAS A TWO-STRAND BARBED WIRE FENCE THAT A HUNG HER -- THAT A YOUNG HER CALF CAN WALK THROUGH WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM AT ALL.|
|00:00:32||WE'RE JOINED BY CONGRESSMAN FRANKS OF ARIZONA.|
|00:00:35||HE WANTS TO TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HIS VIEW OF THIS SERIOUS PROBLEM ON OUR BORDER FROM THE STANDPOINT OF OUR FRIENDS IN ARIZONA.|
|00:00:45||I YIELD YOU WHATEVER TIME YOU MAY WISH TO USE HERE TONIGHT.|
Mr. CARTER. Quite honestly, if they have a plan to seize American soil, I think that's as close to an invasion plan as I can think of, and that concerns me greatly. If it's going to happen in Texas, it's going to happen in other States.
I've had the pleasure twice now to go to the border of the great State of Arizona. To be very honest, at least we've got a river between us and them. With the exception of some of the fences being built in Arizona--and I've seen the old fence. It was a two-strand, barbed wire fence that a young heifer calf could walk through without any problem at all.
Tonight, we're joined by Congressman Franks from Arizona. He wants to tell us a little bit about his view of this serious problem on our border with our cartels from the standpoint of our friends in Arizona. I yield to the gentleman whatever time he may wish to use here tonight.
