Ranchers along the Texas border with Mexico are in fear for their lives and the lives of their families.
Cartel members, gang bangers and Islamic radicals are crossing over into the US.
Texas border rancher Cuban “Rusty” Monsees described to Oathkeepers how Mexican drug cartels are taking over Texas border ranches.
Monsees says the cartels are using death threats, assault, and attempted murder to drive ranchers and their families off of their land.
Rancher Rusty Monsees says there are trails all over the place down by the border.
“We get kids. We get adults. The cartel is bringing across, importing people from as far away as the Mediterranean. I’ve talked to agents and they picked up some characters from Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Syria... anything that you can think of these agents are having to deal with.”
Rob, an out-of-state Oath Keepers member who has been serving as a volunteer guard on Rusty’s ranch for the past month, added that Homeland Security had caught several terrorists crossing into the United States.
Via The Oathkeepers:
[They] had six middle eastern males on Rusty’s property [which Border Patrol was able to catch] … all I know is they were Muslim. I wasn’t told a whole lot of information about it. I do know they had told me they had caught eleven of the same group, the week prior to that, that had been on our United States terrorist wanted list [for acts against the United States] – not watch, but wanted list. And this is the kind of stuff that they are not releasing to the public, they’re not allowed to release it.
When asked what happened to those men on the Terrorist Wanted List, Rob said:
They were caught and they were turned over to Homeland Security, and everything pretty much disappeared like what Rusty was saying. None of that is any public information or anything like that, so they don’t want it to be public. [ the BP is not allowed to tell anyone that known terrorists are coming across the border]. They aren’t allowed to speak about it. The only thing we [the American public] hear about is women and kids… and when they make huge drug busts, that’s what we hear about. We don’t hear about the gang-bangers coming across, we don’t hear about the terrorists coming across. We don’t hear about the violence going down on the border. I had a rancher call me last week, and begging for help on 15,000 acres. He had been moved off his ranch because he doesn’t feel safe with his family there. He’s been shot at and threatened. We don’t hear that [on the news].
Rob says that particular rancher moved off his ranch two weeks ago, because he doesn’t have enough men to guard it against takeover by the cartels. Rob adds:
You’re having that all along the border. You have people like Rusty who are sticking by it, and are not backing down. Cause, who’s gonna want to buy Rusty’s house, who’s gonna wanna buy Fernando’s house? With the violence going on along the border. They can’t afford to sell their house and move because they’re not going to get anything out of it. They’re forced to abandon it [the 15,000 acre ranch], and move away or else stand their ground.
That same rancher is now asking Rob to try to bring in enough volunteers to help him protect his ranch from the cartels.
