AUSTIN--In an ongoing effort to seek increased federal resources to enhance border security, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples today announced the fifteenth 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 Texas Department of Public Safety Pilot Marc Tomerlin as he gives chase to cartel drug runners.

“Several times a week we see this,” Tomerlin said. “Their whole game is to try to get their dope north to a stash house. If law enforcement ends up taking them down prior to reaching that stash house, they'll usually try to turn around and get the narcotics back to the river.”

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.”
