Dr. Mike Vickers, a veterinarian and longtime resident of Brooks County, compares the Texas border to a battleground and accuses the federal government of downplaying the severity of the situation.I don't know how somebody could call the border a war zone when Brooks County isn't even on the border.
“The border is not secure,” Vickers says. “It’s dangerous. We are in a war zone. There’s absolutely no truth to what they [federal officials] are saying.”
