If he's done nothing about it, then I agree, otherwise I hardly see why he would be responsible for doing the feds job.
And how's he supposed to take on that many clearly armed men?
The government should use this to declare war on Mexico as they are in fatigues and armed and the logical conclusion is that they are Mexican military.
If they aren't then Mexico needs to prove it and secure the border themselves so as to prevent that kind of misunderstanding.
And yes, BUILD THE WALL AND ENFORCE THE BORDER.
There are many ranches along our Southern border that are thousands of acres in size. We are NOT talking about 50 acres. More like 5,000 & more.
Rugged country. Alot of people could make it quite a distance into the USA if they were in a gully or ‘draw’ & were out of sight of a person just looking across the landscape.
Ranchers do NOT patrol their entire land holdings every single day.
It should be safe for them to run their ranching operations-—and that safety is the responsibility of the US Government.
You are of course correct but there is no need to draw conclusions. Its a documented fact that the cartels pay some people to go through military training, bribe active duty personnel, and prefer to hire ex-military for security work.
The Mexican armed forces are really just a type of government subsidized security school for cartels.
Ranchers and other land owners are not allowed to do anything about illegals crossing their land. They have been jailed and sued for even trying to enforce trespassing laws against them.
Fact, if a citizen trespasses on private property that is properly posted here in NM the State Police or sheriff’s deputy will come arrest that person and they will be charged with trespassing and pay a fine- $300 years ago I don’t know how much now. If an illegal or anyone that looks like they might be an illegal is trespassing on private property local law enforcement will tell you to call Border Patrol, illegals will not be charged with trespassing and will not be fined.
So what exactly do you think ranchers should be doing about it?
