    Just in this county, reported deaths of illegal aliens for this year to date was 66. County looking for a contract with a border county to do autopsies on them. They had been sending them north and then having to bring the bodies back. It as costing them over a grand a body and burial if no one came to claim it. They have found a possible border county solution for dispostions without returning to this county.

    Yesterday, reports of a bailout just north of there with 8 illegals in the brush and @ 50 lbs of weed found in the abandoned vehicle. A small load by comparision to the checkpoint loads. Bailouts are getting to be a weekly thing around here.

    Helicopter has been flying all night around here. Musta been a bail out somewhere in the area.

    Friend of the wife tweeted recently that she went to living room of her home one day and found an illegal inside lookig for a phone. Their car had broke down or something. Just a mile or so down the road from us. Guy was actually from South America IIRC. Her house is just off the main road. that doesn't help.

    So, if you lived in a border area with a lot of illegals coming across, and you had "no trespassing" signs in all languages on your property, could you just set up a sniper post every night and pick them off as they come onto your property? I think that should be legal. Maybe they'd realize it would be going to start getting tough to cross illegally.

    We are actually 90 miles from the actual border and 70 miles from the Rio Grande valley cities. It is just brush from there to here. Just 2 roads bottleneck everything from the valley to this area. One is 20 miles east of here and one comes through. Nothing much to the west for 40 miles. Farm roads and such and 90 miles to Laredo. Most of their traffic goes NE on Highway 35 to San Antonio, Austin and Houston. But Highway 285 runs west to east from Laredo & Zapata to here, an alternate route. Just alot of brush to the south and southwest. Hard country, hot as hell now, so alot of them die en route.

    I use to keep my doors unlocked. Not anymore. Just too many criminals and gang members traveling with the undocumented workers now. I have motion lights, have 5 large dogs outside and 2 smaller ones inside. Always carry something while outside working on the yard or when cutting brush.

    Use to get approached several times a year by illegals coming out of the brush. I don't give them anything. My In laws use to feed them and their parents did too when they lived out here. That was long ago and the situation was much different. I was lucky to be armed the last couple of times I was approached. Both times it wasa groups of 3 to 4 men between me and the dogs. They did not stop with their advances and demands for help until I made them aware that I was armed. Never pointe or threatened them. Just let them see the weapon. At that point they backed off and lelt for the brush and I called the Migra.

    There is also alot of activity at our other ranchito @ 40 miles Sw of here. It is on a small road coming from Rio Grande, Texas to the main U.S. 281 that comes here. That's kinda right in the middle of the "no man's land." No one lives out there. Most of my relatives have moved to cities in the valley or around here.

    Some of the local ranchers and businessmen have an organized group to help track illegals through the ranches. They are to only track and report to the border patrol. They operation is similar to those started in Arizona. However, they avoid calling themselves a militia or anything. Alot of the locals are opposed to it, but the ranchers insist that damages to their property presents a need for such security.

    In Texas it is more or less.

    I'm conflicted in border issues. They are there as a product of a failed war, a failed war we continue to pump money into. The numbers of illegals crossing through the border each year is dropping, but this year we will spend more and more money militarizing the border, when the majority don't access through the point being militarized, or run into agents all together.

    One of the greatest generals in American history summed it up well. It's a shame we didn't listen.

    For the record I'm Texan, and used to visit Mexico once a year up till a few years ago when the border violence became more of an issue than what it is.

    Tell you what, lets not call it border violence, that's not right, lets call it what it is, black market violence. Those immigrants coming to the US to work and not be caught don't do illegal things to get caught. Those here to support the black market can and do, so lets no place the blame on the people trying to get ahead, but the people keeping us behind.

    Obviously that's from the Statue of Liberty, and was one of the first thing when many of our families came here oh so long ago. My family predates it, but that's not the point here.

    We have a black market issue. Until we address it and start calling the issue by it's name we're going to be stuck in the same loop of looking for solutions to problems we don't have. It's costing us to much to continue this path, in men, in money, and in the heart of the American people.
