U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after a cartel assault force staged an hour-long attack in a town near the Texas border.

“Things aren’t getting better on the other side of our border. The drug cartels are going to keep escalating these military-style attacks as they fight for turf. We need to go on the offensive against these butchers.”
