“You do not feel safe. You can’t even go out on the porch in the mornings to drink your coffee without a gun on you.”
Texas ranchers on the border told Tulsi Gabbard, who filled in on Tucker Carlson Tonight, that they live in constant fear after another attempted break-in.
The border crisis has forced them to keep guns on themselves all the time. They do not feel safe at all:
Debbie Douglas, her son Scott Douglas and her young granddaughter joined “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss the impact of the ongoing border crisis on their livelihoods and called for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to “step in” to help.
“It is very sad that we cannot come up here and enjoy the life that we did several years ago without fearing for our lives,” Debbie said. “We have constantly got to be armed. We’ve constantly got to be watching the little one so that she doesn’t get out of our sight… the solution is to close the borders. Our governor has got to do something.”
Scott said he feels that “nothing is being done” by the federal government at the U.S.-Mexico border to the point that police from all over the state have come in to assist Border Patrol.
Debbie’s video of men trying to break in went viral a few days ago. She told Bill Melugin she spent $13,000 upgrading her security.
It’s also not the first time it’s happened.
The men broke into her neighbor’s house when they couldn’t break into her house.
Property owner tells me the men successfully broke into her neighbor’s home after they left hers, and that they were gone by the time Border Patrol responded. She said she latched her front door’s deadbolt to steel frame so they couldn’t get into hers this time. @FoxNews

More from Fox News:
“We’ve got to close down the border. You know, this administration is not doing anything about it. So we’ve got to rely on our governor to step in and take up the slack,” he said.
Debbie said there is now “no feeling of safety” at their ranch because of the crisis.
“It is always fearful. You’re always looking over your shoulder. You’re always listening for sounds that are not familiar to you. You do not feel safe. You can’t even go out on the porch in the mornings to drink your coffee without a gun on you,” she said.
“This is the third time within 18 months that we’ve had illegals here at our property,” Scott added.
