    Default The migration crisis on the US-Mexico border

    What happening here...now...is frightening. Since Mr. Biden opened the US southern borders I have been experiencing a flood of people crossing the border and making their way toward San Antonio. Last night I had families. Today it is men, and they do not all appear to be Spanish. Just caught one of them trying to steal my jeep. I have signs up....in several languages. If they need food or water I will share but I will not tolerate stealing.

    I have begun to believe people are evil more than they are good. I am literally now a prisoner in my own home. Because I live in the middle of nowhere I have to be very careful going outside. It makes me angry.

    I have reinforcements coming this afternoon. I cannot stay up watching all night and now all day as well.

    I have lived in many countries, never have I lived in one where you could simply walk across the border into another country without papers and simply go your way. The United States is no longer a country if it has open borders. It makes me sad and angry! I worked my butt off for my land and home and now I have people coming to try and take it!

    What is happening here and now is not good.

    Thanks Iota. You are several hours away from me. I am having some reinforcements in today so I can get some sleep. I just never thought I would have to patrol my land armed for something worse than rattlesnakes. I appreciate the offer!

    It is. All my neighbors are having the same issue. We have started calling each other when a group of them hits our fence line. Some of my neighbors have now taken the stance of "shoot first ask questions later". Some of the people we are seeing are really not good people.

    I just had a family pass through. They were nice, polite and probably as tired as me. I fed them, gave them supplies.

    My fear is this is NOT going to stop.

    I just had a family pass through. They were nice, polite and probably as tired as me. I fed them, gave them supplies.

    My fear is this is NOT going to stop.
    i just got off the phone with the Border Patrol 800-232-5378 option 2

    i explained the situation and for attempted car theft, and he said the local authorities were best to handle that BUT for tresspassing by suspected immigrants that there should be a local border patrol office that you could call for help perhaps even in patrolling land

    i asked him if this was still the United States of America or if it were now a "free for all" he said those questions needed to be raised to our Senators, the congressman for your area, mayor and other elected officials

    whereupon i told him that NOT ALL officials in office WERE ELECTED
    that there is one in the WH that 80 MILLION of us say he was NOT

    so to please construe the language of his communication to reflect accuracy ..
    that i was NOT alone in feeling this way or having this opinion

    he, of course could not speak to that, but thanked me for my opinion


    the NOTE of importance here is this:

    we ARE "Response-ABLE" for the communication that we put out as to what is acceptable or not

    silence IS understood AND computed AS implied consent

    my communication with force of emotion?

    that got registered in the Collective Consciousness
    i incarnated here ... my vote COUNTS

    and it is but one of the threads that comprise the tapestry that we as a collective are weaving

    i take that response-ability seriously

    and create with intentionality

    it is NOT ok what is happening to you Karen, and these are the actions i took to support you and try to help

    as i think of more ... i will do more ... i'm a stand for your safety and your welfare to be supported by everyone who CAN

    prayers for you
    and know you will be in my thoughts



    PS this is website .. .has link to file complaints ... this would be good i think

    All that biden had to do was finish the wall, the money was allocated already, the contractors are being paid daily for their equipment to just sit there. Its about 6 mil a day in costs. And where are the political hacks at? Biden is in never never never land, and Kamela is kackling somewhere about something. We might as well bring back Pepe lew pew, he could probably get more done than whatever these beings are called in washington DC. Lots of prayers down there to ya Karen. We all get this , problem is there's more coming. Without a border we are not a country period. I think all these migrants should be housed by those who supported this change, use the voter roles to start dropping off the illegals at their doorsteps to lead by example! House them Feed them and support them, People don't leave their own country because there educated and doing well there.

    And I thought we had problems here with our neighbors from hell and their 2 dozen barking, howling and crying dogs.
    My prayers are with you, dear Karen.
    Perhaps Texas really is ready to become an independent nation, and disconnect totally from DC.

    YES
    Well I got some sleep for a change last night. My humming birds are back. They migrate from Mexico too.

    People in the US need to know that what you see on television and reality are not the same. Yes, there are some families and children involved but the vast majority of these people are thugs. Not only that, thugs with diseases! Tuberculosis, Cholera, Plague, Smallpox just to name a few.

    I know some of these people want to better themselves. Okay great, use the system and come here legally, I am all for it. But I have issues with families who want to drag their children here for the free stuff and they way they are doing it. That too can be approached legally and yes it takes some time, as it does for ANYONE trying to get US citizenship and it should! We cannot just open our borders.

    Another thing. Many of the ranchers out here will shoot to kill anyone trespassing on their land. The land it posted and it is within their right to do so. Why would you risk dragging your children across someone's pasture and risk being shot? I asked that of the family that stopped here for food the other night. They did not have a good answer. They came for the free stuff and hopes of an education for their children. None of them spoke a word of English.

    So that is where we are today, with no change in sight until something really bad happens. Biden doesn't seem to care. Governor Abbott is, in my opinion, useless. He would not help us during the freeze and as then, all we hear from his office is crickets. It bothers me that nothing will be done until something serious happens and I think it will. As I have said before, the people I am seeing are NOT ALL FROM SOUTH AMERICA!

    I can hear the infrastructure of this once great nation crumbling.

    I echo Mike's sentiments. It would be great if you could record these interactions you have and put them up online. I wish I were your neighbor so I could help. Do you have security cameras? If not I wouldn't mind contributing to a go fund me or something to help you buy some.

    At this rate Trump really isn't going to have to try hard to get back in office.

    It is. All my neighbors are having the same issue. We have started calling each other when a group of them hits our fence line. Some of my neighbors have now taken the stance of "shoot first ask questions later". Some of the people we are seeing are really not good people.
    Texas rancher says migrants entering property: 'Never seen it at this level’
    & never seen it at this quality of people’
    .(4:30).
    John Sewell, Texas ranch owner, fears for his family's safety amid border crisis. 12 people entered his property just yesterday, 9 of them were confrontational.

    The dynamics have changed. It’s not the same group of thugs I’m use to seeing. They’re more confrontational because they have something to lose.

    I’ve been watching the media and it’s portrayed a way different picture than what we have.We’re seeing things like facilities that look like everything’s in order. That’s not the case. If they really want to see what’s going on and what they don’t want to see, they need to come visit people like me that have to battle this everyday in their own backyard.

    I have security cameras all over the property. Hooked to the internet so I can see what is happening real time. My neighbors do as well. Yesterday one of the neighbors put up alarms as well so if someone crosses a fence line we will know.

    Last night I watched at least 50 people cross. I watched them read the signs, some had enough sense to turn around and go the way they came. Others just keep coming and yes they are confrontational. One actually told me that according to our President they are owed.......

    I am afraid this situation is going from bad to worse, sooner or later a conflict will happen that will result in loss of life.

    Dear Karen, I can't imagine how scary this, and I am so sorry you are having to deal with it. At the very least, I am glad that others are with you in the struggle and that it is not you alone, although I'm sure it must feel that you are sometimes alone. Peace and strength to you. ❤️ Diane

    Social media execs grilled on companies helping migrants cross border (2 min)
    DC Lawmakers grilling big tech CEO on human traffickers using their platforms and what they’re doing or not doing to stop it.

    This is the same social media companies that banned former President Donald Trump have become advertising conduits offering help and give cartels access to more people to human traffic.

    Human traffickers 'taunt' CPB, Senators during border visit (6 min)
    Biden: "I guess I should be flattered. People are coming because I’m the nice guy."

    Senators experienced first hand at a crossing taking place and smugglers were. They were so audacious they came to the bank of the river and taunting us and making fun of us and saying we couldn’t do anything to stop the crossings. These people were going to come regardless. So they got a real world view of what we deal with on a daily basis.
