Homeland Security illegal aliens



Gee whiz, that can’t be good, now can it?

The Odd Book One Texas Rancher Found Near the BorderTexas Rancher Dr. Mike Vickers found an Urdu to English dictionary laying on the rocky earth under the cattle fencing on their 1000 acre ranch. Their property line runs along Highway 281, just 4.4 miles north from the Falfurrias Border Patrol check point. It's the first checkpoint on the highway for vehicles coming from Mexico that may be carrying illegal contraband or people into the United States.

An Urdu-to-English dictionary was not something Mike Vickers expected to find on the rocky earth underneath the cattle fencing around his 1,000-acre Texas ranch.

Yet there it was — dropped, Vickers guesses, when its carrier got zapped by his fence’s electricity, and adding yet another dimension to the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border, where tens of thousands of people have been flooding into the United States.

Vickers’ property line runs along Highway 281, just 4 1/2 miles north from the Falfurrias Border Patrol station. The station itself is about 70 miles north of the Rio Grande, the first highway checkpoint for vehicles coming from Mexico in an area known for heavy illegal alien and drug trafficking. Instead of moving through the checkpoint, however, Vickers said that up to 30 people cross his property every day to try to evade the Border Patrol. Years ago, it was only a handful a day.
