Texas Ranchers Hire Private Security Amid Surge in Illegal Immigration

As the nation experiences a surge in illegal immigration, people living in U.S. border communities say they are paying the price.

The numbers of illegal immigrants have skyrocketed since Biden took office. New numbers show more than 200,000 apprehensions at the U.S.-Mexico border in the latest month.

Now, one Texas rancher is sparking controversy for taking matters into his own hands.

Texas rancher Brent Smith told Fox & Friends that his property has suffered $60,000 from illegal immigrants.

“Us Americans, in this part of Texas, we don’t have the same rights as other people do,” Smith said. “We can’t enjoy our property and go in our backyards anymore at night. It’s a tragedy.”

He said his neighbors have had to hire private security to protect their land.

“The cartels are in absolute control of both sides of the border right now,” he added.

In response to the Biden administration’s failure to act, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has taken several steps to stop illegal immigration, including sending law enforcement to the border, banning nongovernmental groups from transporting migrants, and calling on Biden to act.

Abbott recently called out Biden for the increase in COVID cases because of illegal immigrants infecting Americans. (Article continues below.)

“It would be of some solace if the federal government were conducting appropriate COVID-19 testing and other mitigation strategies, but to the contrary, we hear too many reports of the federal government recklessly failing to do so and instead admitting into the United States — and Texas — migrants from over 150 countries, many of whom are testing positive for COVID-19,” Gov. Abbott said. “In short, the Biden Administration is jeopardizing the health and safety of Texans on a daily basis by refusing to follow the law. And it’s not just Texans; these irresponsible policies and actions by the Biden Administration are endangering the lives of many Americans as well as the unlawful immigrants themselves. I will take every available step consistent with the law to fulfill my duty to protect the health and safety of all Texans.”
