Small town America is usually a safe haven for citizens from crime, but if you happen to live in a rural county that is located near the southern border between the United States and Mexico, well, you might be exposed to more danger than you care to know about.
Politicians and the mainstream media, which in reality, is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party, are both focused on providing coverage of the border crisis from the angle of the needs of the illegal aliens breaking our laws to enter the country illegally. The one thing they never seem to focus on are the horrible effects this mass illegal immigration is having on Americans who call the border home.
According to a piece written by Daniel Horowitz and published on TheBlaze, the small town of Cotulla is located about 60 miles north of the border at Laredo, Texas. This town is so heavily impacted by the crisis at the border that the local school district has actually mailed out a letter to parents and administrators to warn them to provide protection for their children from the near endless car chases that are the result of illegal aliens crossing the border.
“‘Please be watchful of your children as they are playing outside, walking home from school, or generally out of the house,’ warns Cotulla Independent School District Superintendent Jack Seals and La Salle Sheriff Anthony Zertuche in a joint notice to the community. ‘Both our communities and the rural areas of the county have experienced a great increase in law enforcement chases and ‘bailouts,'” Horowitz writes in his op-ed.
“The sheriff goes on to warn the citizens about 8-10 car chases and bailouts a day and encourages the locals to lock their cars and not keep valuables outside,” Horowitz says, adding, “This cuts to the core dereliction of the federal government, which in many ways undermines its entire legitimacy. The purpose of the federal government is to keep us safe from foreign threats. Article VI, Sec 4 of the US Constitution directs that the federal government shall protect the states from invasion. This border crisis is an invasion. These communities, which would otherwise have minimal internal crime, are now faced with high-speed car chases, rampant theft, and menacing criminal aliens and drug carriers attacking their ranches.”
Horowitz goes on to discuss how the border numbers for the month of March were higher than they have been in the last 15 years, with the Border Patrol taking 170,000 illegal aliens into custody. Many of these individuals have been released and sent out on buses, while possibly tens of thousands or maybe even hundreds of thousands of other people are never apprehended at all.
This is made possible due to the fact that the Border Patrol is too busy providing care for the illegals rather than helping to provide protection for ranchers and border citizens.
“Border Patrol has already apprehended three times the typical number of sex offenders, and given the amount of money they pay the cartels to cross clandestinely, it’s likely that many more successfully evade capture. In other words, the world’s criminal enterprises are all converging on our border and trespassing on the private property of our fellow Americans,” the op-ed continues.
And now kids are being put at risk due to car chases from illegal aliens crossing over the border? This is beyond unacceptable. The federal government needs to do its job to protect citizens of this country by building the wall and enforcing immigration law. There seems to be more concern about alien children by Democrat politicians at the border than American children living near it on the American side.
