A Texas ranch owner who has spent thousands of dollars to secure her property from suspected migrant trespassers issued a stern warning to President Biden Friday on the threat posed by cartels.
“[Biden] took an oath to serve and protect and to protect our borders,” Deborah Douglas told “Fox & Friends.” “He has done nothing. He is promoting it, in my opinion. If we do not do something now – and thank God Governor Abbott is doing something now – we all just might as well hand over our keys. Because the cartels going to come and take it from us next.”
Texas has resumed building a wall along the state’s border with Mexico, after months of negotiations with private property owners. The announcement came after Gov. Greg Abbott appointed the state’s first-ever border czar to address the influx of migrants coming into Texas.
“We just finished our second stage of securing our ranch,” she said. “We’ve had to spend an additional $13,000 to secure it so that when we are not there, we feel comfortable.”
An Arizona rancher is currently being held on $1 million bond following his arrest in the death of a migrant he shot on his property.
Fox News Digital confirmed that GoFundMe removed multiple fundraisers set up to help 73-year-old George Alan Kelly, who is facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of a man found shot roughly 100 to 150 yards away from his home.
“I absolutely think this is disgusting,” Douglas remarked.
