Illegal immigrants are constantly placing farms in Texas under threat. After the last attack, Texas cowboys have had enough!

They conduct regular patrols of the border are and frequently come into contact with dangerous illegals.
Texas is a place where guns, ranches, and cowboys go hand in hand. Texas is a state that has one of the proudest traditions of American patriotism and culture, and its people are not about to see our nation taken over by crime.
Texas is a rich state with plenty of oil. It is also the largest cultivator of cotton and cattle in the nation.
As what they produce would suggest, the state is very rural. There are over 8,000 ranches and farms in Texas, and all of them have been coming under threat by illegals crossing the border.
The women and men working in these areas are faced with danger on a daily basis. Desperate and criminal aliens commit violence, including rape and murder, on their properties.
Consider the woes of just one rancher: Dr. Michael Vickers. He says that on some days 100 illegals would cross his border. He has dogs trained to alert him of their presence. He installed electric fences, which the illegals would often dig under. Frequently he and his wife have found dead bodies on the property — a scene which must be very upsetting. (via KRGV)
There are also dangerous cartels smuggling drugs and other illegal items across the border — cartels that are responsible for thousands of murders across the property of every rancher in the area.
Todd Staples, the Texas agriculture commissioner had this to say about the matter: “It’s a war, make no mistake about it. And it’s happening on American soil. Farmers and ranchers are being run off their own property by armed terrorists showing up and telling them they have to leave their land.”
The Texas Border Volunteers have been working alongside border patrol agents to track and apprehend illegal aliens.
Finally, according to Dr. Vickers, there is some optimism among those who ranch at the border. Donald Trump’s promise to secure the border gave them hope, and his actions so far have begun to ease their daily burden.
