VIDEO - ‘For the Record’: The Growing Danger of Life on the Border

Ranchers who live near the southern border of the United States say they’ve seen dramatic changes to the area they call home over the past decade. The flow of illegal immigrants north from Mexico across their properties, which once consisted almost exclusively of poor workers looking for a better life, now includes large numbers of criminals and drug cartel smugglers. For the Record traveled to New Mexico to see evidence of the cartel invasion of the United States. You can see the full story in “Forsaken Land.” It’s available on-demand at theblaze.com/tv.

 This For The Record Short is with the Elbrocks in Hidalgo County, NM:

Great documentary, but there is one serious misconception presented: the border invaders shown in this footage are not "immigrants" in any way, shape or form. This should be pretty obvious: take a hard look at them. Immigrants cross into the US seeking to become US citizens - and the vast majority avoid trouble at all cost. Migrant workers cross into the US seeking seasonal work and wages that they take back to Mexico - also trouble avoiders. Invaders of the type shown in this documentary are vicious drug traffickers seeking to transport drugs into the US and money out of the US, and they don't care who they hurt in the process.

I gave up my family ranch because I could not justify keeping my children in what has become a ruthless war zone; undeclared, but real.
