Our Immigration Police State

“Part of the immigration police state involves the power of the Border Patrol to enter farms and ranches within 100 miles of the border to search for illegal immigrants. They did that regularly on farms and ranches outside Laredo. They did it with our farm. They would enter our farm from the highway that adjoined it. They would come onto our farm whenever they wanted — without a search warrant — to search for illegal immigrants. If we put a lock on our gate at the entrance, we had to give them a key. If we failed to do so, they would simply shoot the lock off the gate and enter our farm. If they found our workers, which they sometimes did, they would bust them and carry them away.” (09/18/23)
