Those that live in Texas, whether on the border or not, know that this is a drastic issue. In my opinion, the border is a war zone. That may sound
harsh or dramatic, but probably only if you don't live here.
I personally have seen photos and spoken to people, farmers, who in their daily lives witness drug trafficking across the border. This includes:
-Routes dug by drug runners so as they are walking along (yes, walkers!) they won't skyline themselves, on private property. Think farmland.
-Holes cut in private fences so that trucks are able to pass through.
-Farmers who have actually spoken to said drug runners, who have been told by the drug runners to continue their business as normal and pretend like
they don't see anything. To ignore any changes to their landscape in the drug runner's path, such as not fixing any damage or report them to the
authorities as doing so will result in death.
-I have been told personally by an individual that I believe was telling me the truth that many highway patrol officers on the routes between Mexico
and the US are bought off to ignore drug and human trafficking.
And on top of that, though I haven't seen anything in the MSM about this, I know the US Army has been deployed to the borders to do something. They
are there now. More soldiers are being sent that direction as well. Of course I know nothing of what they are doing, but I assume it's something
big, obviously. I know one of them said the stuff he sees on the border is so sick (on a daily basis) he can't discuss with his family.
Remember that fence that was supposed to be built, to "secure the border" anyone? Yeah, some fence is up, and it doesn't lie on the border. It
just goes where it wants to and some Texans are on the other side of the fence, having to cross through gates to get to the rest of Texas. Yes, they
have been built outside the fence line. The final ultimate insult and proof the government is just not out for the people.
