‘We’re Under Siege Here’ Texas Rancher Says As Dogs Heard Barking In Background In Search For Illegal Immigrants
By Hank Berrien
“I’ve already caught three this morning before breakfast … We’re nervous as to what we can get away with and what we can’t get away with. These people, it seems like, (have) more rights than we do.”
A Texas rancher, speaking to Fox News’ Dana Perino about the drastic problems he and other ranchers face from illegal immigrants crossing the border, told her, “We’re under siege here” as dogs could be heard barking in the background as officials reportedly chased after illegal immigrants on his property.
South Texas rancher John Sewell said, “I’ve already caught three this morning before breakfast,” adding later, “We’re nervous as to what we can get away with and what we can’t get away with. These people, it seems like, (have) more rights than we do.” Near the end of the interview, he pointed out, “These people are coming to you guys. They’re not staying here with us.”
After playing a clip of President Biden’s State of the Union speech in which he spoke of immigration reform, Perino stated, “It’s one thing to do so in the corridors of power; it’s quite another for folks who are dealing with the unfolding crisis at the southern border day in and day out.”
