He says his Catarina ranch has attracted drug smugglers before, who continuously knock down fences as they look for a way to enter the United States.How soon before this news hits the neocon media? It's got all the right ingredients for a juicy story: ranch invasions, border communities, hard-working ranchers, evil smugglers. Obama!!!
However an encounter over the weekend between a neighboring rancher and smugglers turned violent, leaving him outraged and fearing for his life.
The LMT has a story on it too.
