Biden Border Crisis: Texas Ranchers Live in Fear After Third Attempted Break In

Biden Border Crisis: Texas Ranchers Live in Fear After Third Attempted Break In

“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.

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.

Shoot to kill

Abbott is useless and we know the Dems just want you and your family to die

    I agree. If Texas is what is claims to be, there will be no questions.

    You are nuts. I don’t know why Legal Insurrection allows you to keep posting here, when so many of us have posted how wrong you are. Abbott is on our side. Which side are you on?

      Abbott has earned RINO credentials

        You could walk by ot and never know what it was, it actually was moved to downtown San Antonio in the middle of tourist insanity

        We should honor it with everything we have, it’s a joke

      gonzotx in reply to JR. | December 30, 2022 at 10:42 pm

      I’m
      Nuts? I live in central texas I know iwhat’s going on and I know Abbott.

      I actually believe DeSantis would have shut it down a long time ago.

      So disagreement caused you to need to find a safe place?

      I think you’re in the wrong blog,

      diver64 in reply to JR. | December 31, 2022 at 7:30 am

      Really? Exactly what has Abbott done except bus a few illegals around the country?

        txvet2 in reply to diver64. | December 31, 2022 at 10:34 am

        The fact that you ask the question proves that you haven’t bothered to try to find out. It isn’t a secret, it just takes a few minutes of actual research.

          gonzotx in reply to txvet2. | December 31, 2022 at 11:21 am

          Please enlighten us, I only live here and volunteer in the Republican Party

          Edward in reply to txvet2. | December 31, 2022 at 2:30 pm

          Gonzo. So which of these definitions of the adjective fits your use?
          1. Using an exaggerated, highly subjective style, as in journalism; or,
          2. Extreme, unconventional, or bizarre; or,
          3. Crazy, excited, or unrestrained.

          And you live in Texas? How special. You and how many millions of others of us- ummm 30.3 million is about correct, though Quid Pro Joe’s millions of illegals add to that daily.

          As you volunteer in the Republican Party, then you obviously have done something to assist in Greg Abbott getting elected/re-elected – even if it is only freeing up someone else to directly assist. Not knocking volunteering for the Republican Party, it’s a good thing to get involved. I work as an election official every other year. Which, of course means I work with the Party in Partisan Elections as each Party selects their own Election Judges and Clerks. The County selects Election workers in Non-partisan Elections. Though the 13 to 14 hour Election Day after days of Early Voting is a lot harder as I approach 80. Maybe I’ll manage 2024, maybe not.

    Nobody remembers the Alamo.

    It’s called an INVASION. And what Biden is doing is called TREASON.

    gonzotx in reply to gonzotx. | December 30, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    We have a saying in Texas “Allhat amd no cattle”

    That’s Abbott

    All the man has to do is take on the Feds he would be a hero to us all

    We would back him to the WH which he wants more than anything and he’s too stupid to understand what courage is . He should know, considering he had to pull his live together after a freak accident that put him in a w/c.

    But he put out a stupid text tonight that he has bussed 18,000 illegals to cities in America.. WOW, 18,000 of 5-7 million, all on our dime… impressive

      txvet2 in reply to gonzotx. | December 31, 2022 at 10:57 am

      Look, you’re just going to have to get over the fact that Beto lost. You have 4 years to come up with an actual candidate, and then you can try again.

Is there any reason that Americans on the border cannot use deadly force? Could a state anounce they are seceding, spend a few months defending the border, and then stop the process? What about all the border states doing this? How about support from non border states? I have lots of business law experience, not a lawyer. Looking for answers, especially outside the box answers..

    I don’t know what the current attitude is, but a few years ago a rancher shot an illegal and was prosecuted for it.

      JohnSmith100 in reply to txvet2. | December 30, 2022 at 9:09 pm

      “As a resident of Texas, you are subject to some of the most lenient “stand your ground” laws in the country.”

        Which meant exactly nothing, because it varies by jurisdiction. That rancher was prosecuted for shooting an illegal on his property because that particular jurisdiction is/was run by Democrats who were pro-illegal.

        In another case from a few years ago, a man shot two burglars exiting his neighbor’s house and faced no charges, even though he couldn’t exactly claim to be “standing his ground” or that he felt threatened in any way. You pay your nickel and take your chances.

    If they are breaking into your house or threatening you on your property in any way then I think you are on firm ground using a firearm defending yourself. If they are just walking through your property trespassing then probably not.

Ask LOSD about castle doctrine in TX

Offenders killed during the act have remarkably low recidivism

This is what guns are for

    txvet2 in reply to geronl. | December 30, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    And, given the current laws governing use of force, when you use one, you implicitly accept the consequences. Don’t get me wrong. It takes a few martyrs to get the revolution started. Somebody’s got to be first.

    henrybowman in reply to geronl. | December 31, 2022 at 10:41 am

    “The border crisis has forced them to keep guns on themselves all the time.”

    You know, once you get over the irrational guilt that society wants to make you feel (as if you’re breaking some kind of law when you aren’t), it becomes really no big thing. Leaving your house, you make sure you remember your keys, your wallet, and your gun before you lock the door behind you. You leave your holster on your pants when you take them off at night, and it’s there in the morning. You do it even when you’re “not expecting trouble,” just like you leave your spare in your trunk hen you’re “not expecting a blowout.”

    The downside is that your minor kids in the yard don’t have the same options. Not that you’d want to put them in a position where they had to exercise them even if they did.

I used to back and forth with lawyers about something I wanted to accomplish. I would propose something, and they would come back tell I shouldn’t do it, Then I would propose a different approach. Back and forth until I found a way to accomplish what I needed. That is what I am looking for here, Is there an approach which people suffering from illegals can use to justify putting/taking out illegal trash? America and Americans first. A message needs to be sent in a way where Americans do not end up prosecuted. They need a how to get away with it manual. What is going on is horseshit. Something has to give.

in an ongoing situation (escalating dramatically since jan 2021) where local and other state le as well as the feds are simply being overwhelmed and have had zero support from fjb’s administration, am surprised that the county sheriffs have not simply deputized the entire legal citizenry twenty-one or older–believe they have the authority, regardless of state / federal objections

    We all need that AZ sheriff Joe Arpaio, use to be Maricopa cty sheriff , a real hard a$$.
    Unfortunately lost a recent election, pretty sure, like all the Az elections, he was cheated

      henrybowman in reply to gonzotx. | December 31, 2022 at 10:45 am

      Arpaio use to maintain an active “posse” in the county, most notably in retirement communities such as Sun City and Sun City West. They weren’t “sworn” and didn’t have arrest powers, but they were like a very strong “community watch” and would participate in search and rescue, amber alerts, report incidents, etc. The new Democrat clown, Penzone, has done everything in his power to neuter the posse short of disbanding it completely, which he doesn’t dare do because it is extremely popular.

    An elected County Sheriff most certainly has the authority to deputize anyone he/she wants to uphold the law. A number of Sheriff’s around the country have said that if the federal or state government tries to pass a gun confiscation law he/she would deputize every adult in the county nullifying the attempt

believe it or not:
WWIII has begun – right in our own country
arson, murder, and rape increasing daily and the LEOs do nothing
Just look at Portland, Oregon as a good example

    gonzotx in reply to paracelsus. | December 30, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    I don’t trust my police, use to be really conservative, it was well known not to get busted in my county, now it’s turned blue and the few interactions I have had with them have been wanting. . I was really surprised, yet they like to go full metal jacket in dress and vehicles, very intimidating on purpose.

Also the ranchers are afraid to kill them because of the cartels, the cartels would murder their families and nothing would happen to them, nothing.

If it were me I would install a fence/wall around my home and yard area. Then get a couple of dogs; Mastiffs would be a good choice for a family they are naturally protective, their size creates a deterrent effect and they love kids. It sucks that ordinary people must pay the price for govt failure but either move or do what it takes to protect your family and yourself.

    gonzotx in reply to CommoChief. | December 31, 2022 at 11:26 am

    Make your own prison

      CommoChief in reply to gonzotx. | December 31, 2022 at 1:02 pm

      Nah, not even close. The walls of a prison are designed to keep people in. The very common sense barrier of a protective wall and companion/guardian dogs is designed to protect via deterrence.

      Even Paul Ryan and Obama recognize the usefulness of a wall in protecting their own families. Too bad they don’t feel the same about the utility of a border wall as the first physical layer of defense for all Americans.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to CommoChief. | December 31, 2022 at 5:04 pm

    What you’re describing is an American version of what South Africa became.
