Texas Governor Rick Perry has accused President Barack Obama of “gambling with American lives” after a bullet believed to be from a gun battle in Mexico hit a building in the US state.
“For the second time in two months, bullets from a gun battle in the escalating drug war in Juarez have struck a building in El Paso,” Perry said.
Borderzine.com, a website belonging to the University of Texas in El Paso, said the incident occurred Saturday and a single bullet hit a building belonging to the university.
No injuries were reported, but Perry said the federal government’s failure to reinforce the border with Mexico was endangering US lives.
“It is unconscionable that the Obama administration is gambling with American lives,” the Republican governor said.
