Border Resident: Nancy Pelosi Should Visit My Ranch

Joe Gomez, CBS DFW, June 27, 2014

“I’ve had a 7-year-old little girl from El Salvador with her mother come to my front door just in dire need, lost, needing help,” says Linda Vickers, who owns a Ranch in Brooks County.

“They wanted to get a ride to Houston; they didn’t want me to call border control. This ranchland is ruthless. It’s deep sand; it’s hot; it’s humid; it literally sucks the life out of a person.”

Vickers says even though her ranch is about 60 miles north of the border, bands of illegal immigrants are still crossing onto her land by circumventing border patrol check points.

“I have a set of dogs here that are a deterrent and they tend to put some of these people in trees. I’ve even had an MS-13 gang member in a tree up here in front,” says Vickers.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to travel to South Texas on Saturday to meet with immigrant children at a detention facility and be briefed about the ongoing humanitarian crisis along the Texas-Mexico border.

Vickers wishes Pelosi or a member of her staff would come to her ranch to see first hand what everyday Texans are going through.


“On one hand, I have women and children and young people in distress–and then on the other hand, I’ve had a criminal element of gang members,” says Vickers. “Young men that have had multiple deportations and do not want to get caught. I’ve heard them tell border patrol as they’re loading them into their vehicle ‘That’s okay, Obama’s gonna let me go.’”


Pelosi will be joined by Democratic Reps. Filemon Vela of Texas, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee; Chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Rubén E. Hinojosa of Texas and Steven Horsford of Nevada.

  • Don’t bother, dear. Nancy Pe-LOUSY doesn’t expect you to be a future Democrat voter.

    • Kristinitis

      quit repeating that lie: “Future Voters”. Non-citizens can’t vote and citizens WON’T vote pro-immigration. This “voter” claim is a deliberate ruse along with the “just doin’ the jobs white people won’t do”. Baloney.

    If the first faces these illegal aliens saw as they snuck into this country were those of Botox Pelosi and Corpse Reid, they’d probably run right back into Mexico, screaming in horror.

      I prefer CRIMINAL aliens.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        A criminal alien is any third world foreigner that immigrated to the United States after passage of the treasonous 1965 immigration act.

    Why don’t we ask Pelosi what she thinks about setting up a funneling system to take everyone who crosses the border directly to San Francisco to be housed, processed and surely ultimately released?

    The affluent, “fabulous” Lefties there wouldn’t have a problem with that, would they???

      Even better would be to move them next to the gated community in which she lives that was White only when she moved in.

    • propagandaoftruth

      She just wants to wash illegal’s feet and apologize for providing them benefits and welfare.

    Hey I’ve got a big ranch with lots of Hispanics on it, too! And they’re pretty well behaved. Especially on pay day.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Sir, your generosity knows no bounds.

      May I humbly request that you raise their pay to $2 an hour? Oh dear, I fear I may be out of line with such an extravagant solicitation.

        lol last night in that crap-fest show Jon Stewart they had on the (gasp!) child-farm laborers and how miserable it is, etc. I thought they’d bring on some white farmers kids- nope, 3 Mestizo teens who had that soft, pathetic voice “dey doan breeng us notteen, no wadder.. no fude…. ” Um- excuse me, who forced you to work there? I mean, isn’t “work” the entire reason you came here? And if you are a “child” under-age, complaining about work conditions for underage children, where the F are your PARENTS during all this? Such BS. I can’t watch TV anymore. It just makes me so angry.

          Funny. I can remember working when I was a kid… mowing lawns in high summer. Pretty much all day. But only after our own was taken care of first.

          I always took my own water/drinks/food with me. Packed a lunch so I wouldn’t have to bother the folks I was working for.

    While Nancy is down on the border can someone arrange a prisoner sway and trade her for that marine they have in jail down there on the weapons charge? It would be a hell of a lot better trade than the one Obama made for that deserter.

    • IstvanIN

      He is the wrong color. She only cares about “new Americans”.
