West California, Part 12
The primary barrier continues past the small
town of Campo, California. While this barrier looks so "effective",
the reality is not what it might seem. One rancher along this
"protected" part of the border counts an average of
13,000 illegals a year going over his property. While that might
seem impossible, it's just an average of 40 illegals a day. The
illegals don't leave five bucks on their way through either. Water
tank spigots are left open and 20,000 gallons of drinking water
are drained. Cattle are killed, dogs are killed, horses are killed.
Homes are burgled and set on fire, cars are stolen.
And yes it does get personal when a mother has
her 13 year old girl raped. No "Planned Parenthood"
here, they plan to raise the child. One little girl was stabbed
and murdered with a screwdriver so the illegal could take her
Because the Border Patrol does not have the budget
for a real barrier, smugglers can use the simplest
of tools to enter the United States.

Finally, the border reverts to a simple vehicle
barrier to keep the drug convoys off the interstate.
