A farmer in Arizona, Jim Chilton, set up a camera in order to document how many people were crossing the border from Mexico across his land. In one video, he captured a group of men armed with military assault weapons crossing the border into the United States with backpacks possibly filled with drugs. He has notified the government on several occasions that illegals were crossing the border onto his property, but they have yet to take any sort of action. This is a perfect example of why we need a border fence. Terrorists could just as easily cross the border with weapons in order to commit terrorist acts.
Security camera footage from as recently as 2018 shows individuals in camouflage toting large backpacks and in some cases what appears to be military-style assault rifles walking through his ranch into the States incident free. They even attach the military-style assault rifles to horses.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Chilton carries a pistol and a rifle while tending his cattle to “ward off the drug smugglers who encroach on his land.”
The article says Chilton does not know why the border hasn’t been fortified by his property:
Although he respects the Border Patrol agents in the region, [Chilton] said, he doesn’t understand why they won’t fortify and build a substantial border fence along the Arivaca region, including the five miles of international boundary alongside his ranch.
It’s inhumane, he said, to allow border crossers to walk in easily through the border, putting their lives at risk from cold nights and hot days. Many are apprehended farther inland anyway.To stay up to date with David’s No Nonsense News, make sure to subscribe to his news letter on his website at www.davidharrisjr.com and follow him on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube @DavidJHarrisJrHe has also just announced his book “Why I Couldn’t Stay Silent” is available for pre-order!
