The Border Crisis is a Humanitarian Crisis heading towards a catastrophic conclusion.
THE FEDERALIST PAPERS: It’s not just that illegal immigrants are being squeezed into overcrowded facilities like cattle, but also that property owners in border states have been left fending for themselves against the onslaught.
Texas rancher John Sewell appeared on Fox News on Thursday to share an ordeal that he says is the worst he’s seen in a quarter-century, with migrants “tearing down our fences, they’re coming to our houses at night” and leaving his family in fear.
“I’ve been here for about 25 years so I’ve seen, under many administrations, I’ve seen lots of trouble,” Sewell told “America’s Newsroom” hosts Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino. “But I’ve never seen it at this level, and I’ve never seen it with this quality of people.”
“They have something to lose,” Sewell said, speculating that it might be human trafficking driving this influx on his ranch.
“You know, my problem is I’m 40 miles from the border,” he continued, “so it’s not like I’m sitting at the edge of the border and all these people are coming across the river to me.”
