These ranchers have been through hell and back. Dead bodies, trespassing, you name it. They are sick of it. Obama didn’t do anything about it. Obama didn’t hear their cries for a change. Trump did. And now they are getting what they asked for.
The thought of a border wall is bringing some peace of mind to one Brooks County rancher. It could help make his property more secure.
Dr. Michael Vickers said he appreciates the president’s work to provide security. He said he never knows when a person crossing illegally on his property is dangerous.
For more than 30 years, Vickers has owned the 12 Oak Ranch. He said people crossing into the country illegally create crawl holes underneath his electrified fence and use paths on his property to walk toward their destination.
He said the traffic has been heavy at times. Sometimes, he’s seen hundreds a day.
