AUSTIN--In an ongoing effort to seek increased federal resources to enhance border security, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples today announced the fifth video posting in a 16-part series titled “Texas Traffic -- True Stories of Drug and Human Smuggling.” The series is available at

This week’s video features Zapata County Sheriff’s Department Capt. Aaron Sanchez. Capt. Sanchez believes members of the Mexican drug cartels are working on the U.S. side of the border and his department is outmanned and outgunned.

“They know our movement,” Capt. Sanchez said. “They know the patrol cars, when we are out, I am pretty sure they know our shift change. I think we are not up to par with them. We are behind them all the time. If is frustrating.”

Each week for 16 weeks, the Texas Department of Agriculture is releasing videotaped interviews with law enforcement agents, farmers, ranchers and other citizens. These “Texas Traffic” stories offer firsthand accounts of drug running, human trafficking, international trespassing and other criminal activities linked to dangerous Mexican drug cartels.

“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 cartel activity is here on the U.S. side of the border.”
