‘Texas Traffic’ video series offers testimonies from farmers, ranchers, law enforcement agents who paint grim picture of violence flowing onto U.S. soil from Mexico

SAN ANGELO --In an ongoing effort to seek increased federal resources to enhance border security, Commissioner Staples today served as keynote speaker at the Angelo State University Narco-Terrorism Conference. As part of his presentation, Commissioner Staples announced the debut of a 16-part video series titled “Texas Traffic -- True Stories of Drug and Human Smuggling.” The series is available at www.ProtectYourTexasBorder.com.

“Federal officials in Washington can no longer deny violence in Mexico is flowing into the United States,” Commissioner Staples said. “These brazen transnational criminal organizations are using terrorism to smuggle drugs and people through our Texas farms and ranches. The violence is not only taking place along the Rio Grande River, but also on property 50 or 60 miles north of the border.”

Each week over the next four months, the Texas Department of Agriculture will release videotaped interviews with law enforcement agents, farmers, ranchers and other citizens on www.ProtectYourTexasBorder.com. These “Texas Traffic” stories offer firsthand accounts of drug running, human trafficking, international trespassing and other criminal activities linked to dangerous Mexican drug cartels.

“Our citizens are finding human remains in their fields along with drugs and cut fences,” Commissioner Staples said. “There also have been incidents where fearful U.S. citizens have sold their property or had to hold intruders at gunpoint in order to protect their families. Clearly, this is a national security breach that demands sufficient federal resources to combat the cartels and restore safety and security to Texas soil.”

The true “Texas Traffic” stories are a testament to the reality that violence initiated by Mexican drug cartels is flowing into the United States and extending northward into other areas of the nation. In one interview, Dr. Mike Vickers, a veterinarian and longtime resident of Brooks County, compares the Texas border to a battleground and accuses the federal government of downplaying the severity of the situation.

“The border is not secure,” Vickers says. “It’s dangerous. We are in a war zone. There’s absolutely no truth to what they [federal officials] are saying.”

Using a PowerPoint presentation entitled “Texas in the Crosshairs,” Commissioner Staples offered conference attendees a barrage of overwhelming statistics proving what Washington officials continue to deny.

“The Mexican drug cartels are violent, they are relentless in accessing the American drug market and they have chosen Texas as their primary access point,” Commissioner Staples said. “Unfortunately, President Obama and his staff continue to make jokes about the situation and suggest our border is safer than ever. The ‘Texas Traffic’ testimonials prove the violence is here on the U.S. side of the border. The statistics also prove that the escalating violence in Mexico’s drug wars is overwhelmingly taking place along the Texas portion of our border. Texas is clearly in the crosshairs.”

The “Texas Traffic” video testimonial series and Commissioner Staples’ “Texas in the Crosshairs” PowerPoint presentation can be found at www.ProtectYourTexasBorder.com.
