COMMISSIONER STAPLES POSTS TENTH VIDEO IN ‘TEXAS TRAFFIC’ SERIES
‘Texas Traffic’ offers true testimonies from farmers, ranchers, law enforcement agents who paint grim picture of violence flowing onto U.S. soil from Mexico

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

This week’s video features Wayne Halbert, manager of the Harlingen Irrigation District, who says if Texas does not receive the federal resources needed to control Mexican drug cartel violence along the border, everyday necessities like water service will be at risk.

“Many of the irrigation districts are impacted by threats,” Halbert said. “Many of the employees are in great fear. That is a concern.”

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.”
