Border Volunteers Patrolling Private Ranches in South Texas

Brian New, CBS DFW, September 9, 2013

Not content with the way the federal government is securing the border or with sitting by and doing nothing about it, a team of volunteers are patrolling private ranches in South Texas looking for people coming into the country illegally.

“We certainly don’t see ourselves as vigilantes,” said Jeff L., one of more than two dozen border volunteers who took part in a three day watch in Brooks County in August.

The group, called the Texas Border Volunteers, has members from all over the country but nearly half of the volunteers are from North Texas.

So far this year, they’ve spotted more than 400 people on private land trying to walk around the U.S. Homeland Security check-point on Highway 281 near Falfurrias.

The group says U.S. Border Patrol agents caught more than half of those they reported.

Jeff L., who is from Fort Worth and who like most volunteers did not want to give his full last name, said he volunteers because he says the government is not doing enough and because it saves lives.

CBS 11 News went with the border volunteers on their August watch.

During one of the early morning patrols Jeff L. spotted a woman lying up against a fence post. She said she was traveling with a group of eight from Mexico when she lost them in the dark of the night.

Jeff L. gave the woman water and then called the U.S. Border Patrol to pick her up. Those found alive are turned over to the federal government, but those found deceased become the county’s responsibility.

Brooks County has buried hundreds of unidentified bodies found out on private ranches.

County judge Raul Ramirez said the burials this year alone will cost his already poor county more than $800,000.

“That’s why we are in the financial situation that we are,” said Ramirez, whose county is broke.

The border volunteers say they’ve spotted twice as many people during the first nine months of this year compared to last year, and it’s not just Mexican nationals they’re seeing.

“Probably 60 percent to 70 percent of the groups we encounter are not Mexican,” said Dr. Mike Vickers, who started the group and who owns a ranch in South Texas. “We see a lot of Chinese and people from India and Pakistan.”

“We see a lot of things that the American public has no clue are going on.”

    And yet, you still go to prison if you try to bring a squirt-gun on a plane…

      The LAW is only for Whites, and don’t you forget it! Bantus, Squat Monsters, and any other ‘diverse’ group are REWARDED for breaking the law. It’s in the Marxist’s plan to destroy the USA.

    Seems like a horrible waste of that big desert they have over there in Texas .

  • RisingReich

    Supposedly spent $800k on burying these invaders?
    Collect them all up once a week on a flat bed truck, drive to the border and dump their stinking carcases on the other side. A couple of hundred bucks max.

    Let the snivil rights groups p!ss and moan. Who cares? Give them the option to spend their own $800k to ‘properly care’ for these invaders.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Why not start a dog food company? They should at least bill the US government, or a class action lawsuit on behalf of all those border towns.

      • IstvanIN

        The poor dogs might catch something.

  • willbest

    I suppose installing some tiger traps wouldn’t be considered neighborly.

  • Easyrhino1

    Better to leave the rotting corpses where they fell in the desert to send a not so subtle message to future transgressors.

    • Natassia

      We are civilized human beings and therefore we should not treat human bodies like garbage.

      Not too long ago, the Hadza tribe (who still roams sub-Saharan Africa) didn’t even bother to bury their own loved ones. They would just leave them for the vultures and wild dogs. Now they at least bury them in shallow graves. These people have no concept or belief in God either.

      What separates white Americans from tribes like the Hadza? Not just our biology…which is not really all that different. No, it is our behavior. We need to be careful that we do not become wild and savage.

        But that does not require expensive funerals and insanely overpriced caskets. Put them in a pine box in holes dug by prison laborers.

        • Natassia

          Pine boxes and cheap digging labor still cost money. I doubt these people are being embalmed and laid in silk-lined caskets.

          • Sick of it

            Actually, the laws in this country today do require rather complicated caskets instead of a simple box. Thus my suggestion. The same can be said for new laws or regulations requiring that prisoners be paid for labor. They used to do it for free.

      • Easyrhino1

        Dear Natassia, for the most part I agree but our civility may be the death of us as the ferals see it as a sign of weakness to be exploited.

        • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

          That’s the whole thing in a nutshell…. well said.

      • IstvanIN

        We only have an obligation to treat our people respectively, even the criminals. Those who have illegally invaded should be dealt with harshly, very harshly. Those not our people, invited in by our treasonous politicians, should be asked to leave within a specified period of time. After that, anything goes.

      • me

        Wut? Biology, culture, and IQ differences between humans is more than skin deep. You need to do some ‘book learning’, instead of watching Oprah every day. Start with studying the decline of Detroit. Or, study the Muslim culture and its misogyny. A country is only as great as the people who inhabit it.

  • Earl Turner

    I love what these guys are doing. The ACU’s need to go though.

  • kjh64

    Now see, if we secured our borders and enforced our immigration laws so that those in this country illegally couldn’t work or make money, this wouldn’t be happening. These people would stay in Mexico where they belong and work to fix their own country.

  • kjh64

    “but immigrants, and he then qualified that by specifying ‘latino’ immigrants, were the solution to this nation’s problems.”

    Yeah right. Without all these immigrants, we’d have a whole lot less problems, we’d have far more jobs, far less welfare and social spending and much less crime as well as far less balkenization. Where is all this going? The USA will become the United States of Mexico or some polyglot 3rd world country if we continue to do nothing.

  • evilsandmich

    Dangerous work, glad for their efforts.

  • IstvanIN

    I have said that many times, sometimes it is better to admit defeat and regroup, rather than loose the entire war.

  • me

    Marxists are using mass immigration to destroy the USA. Why would they stop now, when it’s almost done?

  • me

    You need to investigate. Who owns Fox news? What is their identity? What is their agenda? What criminal offenses has this person been investigated for in the past four years? How much of the ‘mainstream media’ does this person actually own? What overall message is this person constantly sending? Faux news?! NOPE!

  • Bill

    Why don’t those guys just fill the Rio Grande with alligators?

  • http://radicalamericancentrist.blogspot.com/ CORPORATIONS VS THE WHITE RACE

    ALL corporate media is funded by advertising bought by corporations. These corporations buy Labor. Cheap Labor means more profits. Mass immigration of nonwhites means cheaper labor. Higher corporate profits means more ads bought in the corporate media.

    The corporations and the media live off of us. We are their cattle. They want more cattle, more workers, cheap labor and more consumers.

    America is a livestock operations. CorpGovMedia wants more more more human livestock.
