While liberals safely protest in our largest cities, American farmers are being threatened by armed illegal aliens on their own land.
In Texas, 8,200 farms are located along the U.S.-Mexican border.
The men and women who work hard to maintain their farms are constantly in the crosshairs of the Mexican drug cartels, who spill over into the United states and harm our hardworking farmers.
“It’s a war, make no mistake about it,” Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples said. “And it’s happening on American soil.”
Staples made it clear that if the war continues, it could affect the American food supply as the majority of these farmers produce cotton and cattle products.
“Farmers and ranchers are being run off their own property by armed terrorists showing up and telling them they have to leave their land,” Staples said.

In order to help farmers out, Staples launched a new website, ProtectYourTexasBorder.com, where farmers can vent their frustration.
According to Staples, the website has been a success so far.
“We’re very vigilant and we realize that a lot of the people coming through are gang members, criminals, and with that we’ve got dogs to alert us here on the ranch. My wife in particular depends on the dogs, especially when I’m not here,” he said.
Dr. Vickers and his wife, who own a farm on the border, spoke about how illegal aliens sneak under his electric fence to try and get into the U.S.
“We’ve had dead bodies show up from time to time, it’s pretty disturbing. But it’s something we’ve learned to live with,” he said.
One farmer, who asked to remain anonymous, said he has seen so many illegal aliens wandering on his lands that he has given up.
“I see something, I just drive away,” he said. “It is a problem, I’ve learned to live with it and pretty much, I’ve become numb to it.”
Staples is now calling on the government to get involved and solve this issue.
“Our farmers and ranchers can’t afford their own security detail,” Staples said. “We’re going to become more dependent on food from foreign sources.
