America's Third War: Texas Farmers Under Attack at the Border
In Texas, nearly 8,200 farms and ranches back up to the Mexican border.
The men and women who live and work on those properties say they're under attack from the same drug cartels blamed for thousands of murders in Mexico.
"It's a war, make no mistake about it," Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples said. "And it's happening on American soil."
Texas farmers and ranchers produce more cotton and more cattle than any other state, so Staples is concerned this war could eventually impact our food supply, and calls it a threat to our national security.
"Farmers and ranchers are being run off their own property by armed terrorists showing up and telling them they have to leave their land," Staples said.
To raise awareness, Commissioner Staples launched the website ProtectYourTexasBorder.com. It's a place where frustrated and scared farmers can share their stories.
One Texas farmer, who asked not to be identified, said it's common for him to see undocumented immigrants walking through his property. [...]
Another farmer, Joe Aguilar, said enough is enough. After walking up on armed gunmen sneaking undocumented immigrants into the United States through his land, Aguilar decided to sell his farm.
American Patrol Comment: Rick Perry is an open-borders, no enforcement liberal and Sarah Palin should never have endorsed him. His $250 million "Texas Border Security Council" boondoggle earned him a "pants on fire" award. His policies will erase the border.
