House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Tony Gonzales (R-TX) are bringing a delegation of opportunist Republicans to Eagle Pass on Monday, April 25, to make a mockery of the serious situation at the border and the men and women who work hard every day to address the multitude of challenges. John Lira, Democratic Nominee TX CD-23 is organizing a simultaneous grassroots forum to discuss practical border solutions that will provide tangible benefits for border communities. The Round Table will include real talk on economic, border and immigration issues and breaking through the GOP’s blockade of needed reforms.

“I am proud to be joined by community leaders, working families, labor leaders, allies and concerned Texans to discuss our border and our solutions. We, as proud Texans, have a voice on how our border is defined, not out-of-state Republican Members of Congress from Georgia, Mississippi, Utah, Tennessee and California. Their visit to Eagle Pass’ border with Mexico has nothing to do with solving the serious immigration and border issues we face, rather it is a photo opportunity to prop up vulnerable members of the GOP.” stated John Lira.

“Across The Border” by Scott Schuff Will Be Featured at the LA Times Festival of Books 2022

Adrenaline courses through the readers’ bodies as they read Schuff’s new release.

San Diego, California – WEBWIRE

Jason soon learns that honor in warfare has no place in the fight against the cartel.

“Across The Border” by Scott Schuff will be displayed at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 23-24, 2022, at the University of Southern California Campus, Los Angeles, CA.

There were more than a hundred thousand Americans that died last year from overdoses or drug-related crimes. Four billion dollars went to the Sinaloa-Durango Cartel’s coffers and a hundred times that amount was spent attempting to halt the tidal wave of death from slamming across the southern border. The SDC stays one step ahead of the Americans thanks to the cartel’s spies in the American government and law enforcement. With public uproar at an all-time high, the president of the United States has issued a secret executive order to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

“Across The Border” is a suspenseful and action-packed story about America’s quest to eliminate the Sinaloa-Durango Cartel (SDC). This must-read work will appeal to fans of historical fiction and those with an interest in military history since it is very topical and loaded with historically accurate insight into America’s self-proclaimed War on Drugs. The cartel poses a serious threat to the United States, and bringing it down will need a combination of intelligence, determination, and ruthlessness.

The story of this book is about a former Navy SEAL and CIA covert agent named Jason Maines who is recruited to assemble a clandestine, off-the-books DEA squad with one goal; to eliminate the SDC. To form the foundation of his squad, he adds Mindy Sinclair, a bright FBI analyst, and SDC specialist, as well as Raul Vega, a trusted and skilled cartel prosecutor.

Are former Navy SEAL and CIA clandestine operator Jason Maines up to the job? Find out and grab a copy of “Across The Border” by Scott Schuff available at BookBaby, and visit the LA Times Festival of Books 2022.
