“Every time [Obama] opens his mouth about immigration… there’s a huge negative impact on us that live out here along the border…”
Ranchers living in Texas’ vast Brooks County are blaming the Obama administration’s amnesty rhetoric for the noticeable increase of illegal immigrants crossing through their lands.
Rancher and Texas Border Volunteers co-founder Dr. Mike Vickers says he’s noticed more trash along footpaths, and has even run across people seeking help.
“We had two groups, Sunday a week ago,” Vickers told KRGV. “Seven of them gave up to me. They were Hondurans and Salvadorans.”
Vickers has witnessed an uptick in empty water bottles along paths around his and other properties, a sign that smuggling routes are being increasingly traversed.
