‘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 fourteenth 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 a Texas rancher who hides his identity to protect his family from violent Mexican drug cartels that might retaliate against him for speaking out.

“They just bring drugs and loads right in front of you, just blatant,” he said. “If I am standing there and they are looking at me, I’m not going to call anybody, because I am not getting involved. If they don’t see me, I call the Border Patrol.”

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.”
