In an exclusive interview with TexasGOPVote, US Representative Ted Poe (R-TX 2nd CD) talks with Bob Price of US Border Watch and TexasGOPVote about a variety of topics including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (BATFE, ATF) bungling of Operation Gunrunner leading to the deaths of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agent Jamie Zapata. Congressman Poe also discussed his own plan for securing the US/Mexico Border and the overreach of the Federal Government’s EPA into areas like light bulbs, Texas air quality and offshore drilling.
“The whole idea is nonsense”, Congressman Poe said about Operation Gun Runner. “A thousand or more of those weapons have gone to Mexico.” Of course the ATF has not been able to trace those guns.
“We do know about two of them. One of those guns was used apparently in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. One of those other weapons was used in the shooting of ICE Agent Jaime Zapata in Mexico.”
