“For Laredo, homeland security has always meant hometown security, and our outstanding Laredo Police Department has always worked closely with every law enforcement to keep our community safe, which in turn has kept our country safe,” said Mayor Salinas. “As a former FBI agent, I understand the importance and challenges of intelligence gathering, and by working together, these agencies, whether it is the local police department, the sheriff’s office, or any one of our state or federal agencies, will continue to make their presence known throughout the border, keeping us all safe. Under the leadership and direction of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, we all understand that by cooperating together, we will accomplish much,” state Mayor Salinas.
Oddly enough, intelligence gathering never comes through on his part at city council meetings.
