    Moderately interesting article overall, it was the comments at the end that caught my attention ...

    KHOU: If Border Patrol won't help Texas farmers, ranchers say they'll do it themselves

    [Jerry] Klein said that he is often stopped and questioned by the Border Patrol while working on the farm. “I think they ought to be on the border watching the border not over here messing with us,” said Klein.

    [Ed] Miller shares that opinion. “You need to be out on the border, not out here on the highway. That’s where it all starts - on the border," he said.

    Wonder what the law is for CBP to be on private property without a warrant?

    Don't know. I recall reading of cases in the northeast where landowners would barricade private logging roads to keep everyone (including CBP) out & CBP would still invite themselves in.

    When private property runs right up to the border I don't see how they can avoid private property. The real issue is their attitude & treatment of people who are rightfully on our side of the border.
