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

Each week for the past four months, the Texas Department of Agriculture has posted 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.

Today’s final video is a compilation of many interviews from the series and dramatically demonstrates how desperate many in South Texas are for the federal government to offer more resources to secure the border.

“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.”

This week, a TDA producer and videographer are in Webb and La Salle counties interviewing farmers, ranchers, law enforcement officers and elected officials who share additional testimonials about the struggles they deal with as human and drug smugglers invade the region. Look for their stories to be told in 2013.
