‘They Will Leave Us to Fend for Ourselves’: Texas Border Residents Lash Out at Biden for Ending Title 42
“I’ve had aggressive male illegals show up at our house, making demands.”
Title 42, which allowed America to quickly expel migrants, ended Thursday night.
Texas border residents lashed out at the Biden administration on Fox News Friday morning. The border patrol will likely spend more time filling out paperwork than their job of patrolling the border.
[Sort of a rush transcript! Sorry if I missed anything!!]
John Sewell, a Texas rancher in Uvalde, explained how smugglers will bring in migrants in trains. Without the border patrol, the cartels will easily find holes.
“Well, they will leave us to fend for ourselves, unfortunately, and we’ve been doing that quite a bit lately,” said Sewell. “In Kinney County, we have a good presence with local law enforcement. DPS is obviously on the highways with these smugglers. The border patrol has trains to worry about as well. They had last Friday over 200 on one train. Last night, they checked six trains and had 30 plus [migrants]. These are not good guys. They are getting smuggled in, and it will take a couple of days for the cartel to organize to figure out where holes are and can bring bad guys to drop off and let them get around the checkpoint here.”
Sewell also described how illegals have caused problems with fencing and infrastructure, especially the water wells.
“Our water wells, in particularly, get a lot of pressure,” he said. “They turn them on, leave them on. They try to pull the wires out of them so they can charge their phones. You know, it’s just an everyday problem.”
Alison Anderson, a Border Patrol wife in Del Rio, worries about the lack of resources while everyone concentrates on the border.
Anderson also noted the many gotaways not caught by authorities, swarming the town.
“Right now, I heard from a neighbor who talked to a DPS trooper that said they are maxed out and they apologize,” said Anderson. “That leaves us, who live outside of town, we are on our own and it is neighbors defending neighbors and looking out for each other and we are covered in gotaways. There has been no slowing down in the smuggling cases that happen off the back of my property. It is a huge concern, especially with our children here. Schools are going to be out soon and everything this administration has done has not brought numbers down. They just keeping going up. That is going to affect our small community and our backyard.”
Anderson added: “We’ve had everything from DPS pursuits ending on their property. I’ve had aggressive male illegals show up at our house, making demands and we’ve had groups up at our childen’s windows, our daughter’s bedroom window, knocking on the window. There’s been vandalizations that happened on the property. There’s garbage on the property. There’s damages that happen on the property. But these are people less than a mile from the highway so the intentions that they have are one of my greatest concerns because they have bad intentions. These are bad people who are coming through here with criminal histories. It’s a serious concern.”
Retired CBP officer Rosa Arellano in Eagle Pass addressed the administration’s failure to prepare for two years for the ending of Title 42.
“At least we’re grateful he [Biden] is acknowledging by using that word chaos but once we heard he used that word chaos it’s like, ‘Oh, snap, like things are really going to go bad,'” she said. “And our main concern down here at the border, especially within the city limits, we see how the border patrol are overwhelmed with all the illegals coming in between the ports of entry and we’re thinking, ‘Hey, if people are getting frustrated having to wait, because there are many already complaining they have to wait for days at a time under weather conditions they’re not used to.'”
She continued: “Where are they going to come through next? They’re going to go ahead and target our ports of entry, the bridges, and that’s going to cause a lot of chaos because these officers are not going to want to endanger anyone including citizens and those illegals and they’re going to close down operations for an undertermined amounts of time. We have people come and go on a daily basis so they’re going to be stuck over there on the Mexican side. It is a major concern over here on the border.”
Arellano pointed out that medical services are a major concern: “For us here it’s the medical services. We cannot depend on our local ER anymore because we know if we go we’ll be waiting for even longer periods of time that we’re already used to from the past and we see how they’re getting priority over us so we’re having to make the extra two to three hours to San Antonio and seek medical attention so it’s pretty sad.”

Withdraw from a crisis and swoop in when guns have to be used by civilians to halt the escalating violence.
We saw this play out before with Janet.
Having grown up in the area JFYI, parents have ‘the talk’ with their young daughters. They are told exactly what to do when they are home alone and an illegal breaks in. They are told where to hide. Where the family gun is. And, where to point and pull the trigger if they are found.
These are American citizens. And, this is not right.
“I’ve had aggressive male illegals show up at our house, making demands.”
It’s obvious the Biden regime is going to do nothing about the Southern border so get armed and defend yourself. Get a gun. Any kind of gun. Get a baseball bat. Get a taser. Get a sword. Get armed and then deal with these “aggressive male illegals” that show up at your house. Don’t just sit there and complain about it. Go on the offensive and deal with the illegals that show up.
And then you can swap prison stories with Daniel Pe??y.
And THAT is where the problem lies. This administration allows an invasion of military age males,
If these invaders show up on your property and you defend yourself, The American Citizen is the criminal, not the invader.
I say shoot them all. Dead. No witnesses other than yourself. The bastards can’t arrest every one who defends themselves.
If asshats like FAT BOY SLIM in NawYawk come for you, the citizens should band together and push them off.
Local law enforcement and sheriffs should arrest a federal agent who goes after those who defend themselves against the invaders.
Best post of the year. Use your 2A rights. TX should put up a $500 bounty per head with no bag limit. End the invasion now!
Every week you wake up to find someone sleeping in your carport and burglarizing your outbuildings.

The only practical solution with real political consequences is for all these Southern states to run buses 24/7 to sanctuary cities everywhere. It is only when everywhere feels the burdens that these people are bringing to TX is there the possibility of policy and political change.
Agreed! Bus them to every liberal city in the nation. A caravan of 100 buses packed full of illegal immigrants arriving in Chicago and/or New York City will get the message across. And if not, send 500 more. Keep them coming 24/7.
Not sure I’d go to every liberal city. Concentrate on DC and the surrounding area where the policymakers live.
The reason that the Federal government is “leaving you to fend for yourselves” is because they have long ago made the considered decision that an invading army of foreign nationals is of far greater importance than mere American citizens, who they believe will always submit to whatever is done to them. They do not fear electoral payback. because they are in control of the ballot counting, regardless of whether the ballots represent a legal vote.
Seeing the strategy is the first step to thwarting it.
