Border ranch attacked by drug cartelby Hugh Holub on Jul. 25, 2010, under border issues
The following was posted on the article “What’s going on in Mexico?”
I am deleting the name of the ranchers beacuse of concern for their safety from reprisals.
The ranch is on the Sonoran side of the border.
I have a ranch on the border of Mexico and the US. Unfortunately it is in Mexico. Daily they cross the “polleros” y “burreros”. Let’s leave aside the fact that they cut my fences let my cattle out, steal horses, and trash my ranch.
We are spending billions of dollars for border agents…..are they out there on the line where these people are crossing? NO NO NO.
I am so angry because in May the drug cartel came to my ranch killed my cowboy, my best friend that has worked for me for 10 years, ransacked my ranch, stole everything they could load their 4 cars with found nothing they were looking for but in their anger killed him and buried an innocent man next to my ranch house.
Why is this happening because the US turns a blind eye. If they controlled the border and caught all the illegal crosses it would look bad for them, therefore in order for everything to look good back in Washington they have a quota of how many they can catch in a month. A large % of illegals and drugs get across every month because the politicians don’t want the border to look out of control.
If the US did their job the drug cartel where my ranch is would look for another way to cross and well….my cowboy (RIP) would still be alive today.
The lack of law in Mexico, the US and their political agenda, and the death of my cowboy has really opened my eyes to all the corruption. I guess I finally woke up, I suppose I used to live in fantasy land, life was happy and fun. I enjoyed the challenges but now…IDK…I guess I’m still mourning his tragic death and searching for answers.
