AUSTIN--In an ongoing effort to seek increased federal resources to enhance border security, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples today announced the thirteenth 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 Hidalgo County rancher Fred Cappadona, who compares South Texas to the lawless Wild West.

“The border is not secure, it is wide open,” Cappadona said. “There is a lot of criminal activity, a lot of drugs. At nighttime everyone sleeps with a rifle or shotgun in their bedroom, because there is so much activity in the evenings.”

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.”
