Jim Chilton is a fifth-generation rancher in Arizona that finds himself on the front lines of the battle of border security and illegal immigration. He and his wife, Sue live it daily.
The 79-year-old owns and tends a 50,000-acre ranch situated on the U.S.-Mexico border and his property has become a hotspot for illegal aliens crossing into the country. Unlike the heavily fortified border fence in Arizona, the only barriers separating the Chilton ranch from the Mexican border are four strands of rusty barbed wire strung along steel posts.
While tending his cattle, Chilton states he packs no less than two guns and at least 5 gallons of water. The pistol and rifle are to help him ward off the drug smugglers, mules, and human traffickers, or coyotes as they are also known, as they continuously breach the border through his land.
The water is for thirsty border crossers lured by the promise of American jobs and a better life. Chilton states that it used to be that border crossers were simply part of the normal rhythm of everyday life on their ranch. People would come and go freely between the Mexican state of Sonora and Arizona to and from work.
Chilton states: “You’d feed them and give them water and directions.”
The rancher remarked that he has noticed a recent uptick in the number of individuals attempting to use his ranch to enter the country illegally for nefarious means as well. It was not always that way he says.
The early 2000s saw a marked shift as traffic increased significantly in overwhelming numbers, both for the region itself and for its ranchers. Approximately two years ago the migrant traffic slowed to a near halt, and a massive increase in drug smugglers and human traffickers began to flood across the border onto the Chilton ranch.
Now Sue states they are much more guarded about offering any assistance, stating: “At this point, I’m not opening the door except in the rarest of cases.” The danger is simply too great.
As the national debate rages hot over border security and illegal immigration, the Chiltons are living the reality of it. As a result, they have developed a bit more of a nuanced view, attempting to balance their desire for security and protecting America’s borders with the reality of desperate people – men, women, and children alike – wandering across their land starving and parched from the unforgiving desert sun.
Chilton says he does not understand why building a wall to fortify the border is even a question.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Chilton states that:
“Although he respects the Border Patrol agents in the region, he 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.
“The border should be secured at the border,” he said.”
“The couple lament a recently shuttered Border Patrol outpost, the agency’s only significant presence in that area. The outpost, which operated near the ranch, was closed because of budget cuts.
“The couple have even offered to lease 20 acres of their land — about 500 yards from the border — to Border Patrol officials for $1 a year for an outpost. They said the government had not taken them up on the offer.”
The couple states they believe in some sort of guest worker program similar to the federal program previously in place in the 1940s when temporary Mexican laborers were legally allowed to work in the United States. There were no cartels to pay. No human traffickers. No dying in the desert.
At least two neighboring ranchers have chosen to leave rather than continue to fight in the last few years because of just how dangerous the border security situation has gotten. However, the Chiltons state they intend to stay on their land, though it has proven very costly for them to do so.
The cost of maintaining water lines, as well as the international fence to repair it from all the slashing and trampling it undergoes, costs them thousands of dollars in repairs.
Sue states: “We have to maintain the fence or the cattle would all go to Mexico, y no habla español.”
“She gazed out at the trails on the other side of the measly fence, which stretches 15 miles east until it hooks up with an actual border wall in Nogales. She pointed out a network of trails that scar a hill on the Mexican side. It zigzags, leading toward the international fence on the Chilton’s ranch,” reports the LA Times.
“It’s almost as though we have ceded a swath of this United States of America… It has been ceded to operational control of the cartels,” she said.”

FOX: Mexican Kidnappers Behead Businesswoman After Ransom Not Paid
The Democrats and the media call the border wall ‘immoral’. They say it is a fake emergency. The reason we need the wall on our southern border is a national security issue. It’s a matter of stopping vicious cartels, terrorists, and gangs from moving drugs, weapons, and people back and forth to sell to the highest bidder. It’s to stop criminals who have no regard for our laws and kill Americans whenever they can… or worse.
A Mexican businesswoman, unfortunately, provides an excellent example of exactly why we need that wall. She was kidnapped by a cartel. When her husband didn’t pay the ransom, they cut off her head and dumped her corpse in a garbage bag with a note. The body of Susana Carrera was found last Wednesday inside a bag in a parking lot in the coastal city of Coatzacoalcos in the state of Veracruz. She had been kidnapped a week earlier outside a friend’s house where she had gone to pick up one of her children.
The kidnapping took just minutes and Susana never even had a chance to scream. Shocking video shows how her kidnappers pulled her into a car. They grabbed her and quickly threw her into a car in a matter of seconds. This isn’t a one-off… this happens all the time in Mexico. One wonders when it starts happening more and more here in the US whether the left will even care. Perhaps after a few wealthy leftists have their heads cut off it will sink in.
The kidnappers left a note alongside the woman’s body, according to local media, which read: “This happened to me because my husband played the tough guy and didn’t want to pay my ransom.” You know that’s never the full story. The family was unable to raise the needed funds fast enough for the ransom according to the Heraldo de Mexico newspaper. The kidnappers reportedly asked for a ransom of 4 million Mexican pesos ($207,000). Most Americans couldn’t raise that kind of cash either.

Hours after her body was found, Carrera’s husband, Luis Manriquez, confirmed her death in a message on social media. “Thank you very much to everyone for your prayers and wishes for my wife Susana Carrera to return home. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to and she passed away.” That family is torn asunder and will never recover from this atrocity.
The husband and wife owned an aluminum company called Pezaliminio. It had an office in Coatzacoalcos. It’s unclear why the kidnappers targeted Carrera. The local media put out photos of Carrera’s body and a note. Prosecutors in Veracruz announced Monday that it had launched an investigation into how the photo was leaked to the media, which was probably taken at the medical examiner’s office. Since corruption is so prevalent in Mexico, that’s a no-brainer.
Fiscalía inicia carpeta de investigación y expediente administrativo por filtración de fotografía de los restos de…
“The Office of the Attorney General of the state will not tolerate situations like this one, which constitutes a re-victimization and a breach of the duty of secrecy within the investigation,” prosecutors said in a statement. Yes, they will… just as authorities do in sanctuary states such as California.
No arrests have been made so far and there’s an excellent chance no one will ever be arrested for this crime. The number of kidnappings has reportedly risen in the city of Coatzacoalcos, with 49 reported in 2018. More than 160 homicides were reported last year. These are the kind of criminals that the left is welcoming with open arms here in the US. #WeBuildTheWall

Illegal Sentenced To 60 Years For Sexually Assaulting, Impregnating 11-Year-Old TX Girl
An illegal alien was sentenced to 60 years in prison without the possibility of parole following his conviction for continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14. The Illegal alien impregnated an 11-year-old girl.
The victim faced her abuser in a North Texas court during the trial, officials stated. The case began when hospital officials treated the 11-year-old as she was 19-weeks pregnant.
Star Local Media reported:
“This innocent child showed remarkable courage by naming the monster who assaulted her; he will never harm another child again,” Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis told the local news outlet.
Illegal Alien Roli Lopez-Sanchez
In February 2018, medical professionals told police about an 11-year-old patient who was 19-weeks pregnant. The child disclosed that Lopez-Sanchez sexually assaulted her, and at the time of the offense, Lopez-Sanchez had ongoing access to the child.
Eli Molina of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County forensically interviewed the child, who described details of the sexual abuse. Child Protective Services investigated, and the victim and her siblings were removed from the home.
Last summer, at 12 years old, the victim gave birth. Plano Police Detective Kristin Nichols investigated the case and obtained DNA samples of the baby. After analysis, DNA confirmed Lopez-Sanchez was the father of the victim’s baby.
Breitbart News obtained jail records revealing that immigration officers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations placed an immigration detainer on the migrant for being in the U.S. illegally.
The young girl told doctors that 37-year-old Illegal Alien Roli Lopez-Sanchez raped her.
The Officials said he had continuous access to the child at the time. During the investigation, Eli Molina with the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County interviewed the little girl and said she provided details of the sexual abuse. Children’s Protective Services caseworkers removed the victim and her siblings from the home.

To think that the Democrat party doesn’t want to protect the American people from these disgusting animals is quite disturbing. They wouldn’t care if this happened to your child.
