Security footage from a Texas woman’s ranch house 50 miles from the southern border shows suspected illegal immigrants trying unsuccessfully trying to batter down the woman’s door before entering the home of her neighbor.
Border Patrol was called to the Eagle Pass home, but the men had fled before they arrived.
NEW: Security video shows a group of suspected illegal immigrants trying to break into a ranch house in Edwards County, TX earlier this month. House is about 50 miles inland from border. Property owner tells me this has happened before, & she has spent $13k upgrading security. pic.twitter.com/K17osyXbt7

“I’ll invite any politician who says this border is secure to come down to Eagle Pass so I can show them personally if it’s secure or not,” Chief Manuel Mello of the Eagle Pass Fire Department said last month about his border town, which has become a prime site for illegal immigrants to come across the border, reportedly seeing roughly 2,000 illegal crossings each day.
“We’ve got people from all over the world crossing over,” he continued. “You see ’em in town, you see ’em everywhere.”
A huge 153,000-square-foot compound was built in Eagle Pass, which has a population of 30,000, to accommodate illegal immigrants.
“So what are you telling the Third World? Now is the time to come,” Ron Vitiello, former Deputy Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) asserted to CBN. “To suggest that they’re going to be removed because they came here illegally, like it’s gonna happen, is a fantasy.”
“It’s never been this bad,” he charged. “Six to eight thousand people every 24 hours crossing the border. They inherited a border that was experiencing 40-year lows in illegal crossings. We’ve never had a situation where we have an uncontrollable surge on the border and the people responsible for abating it have walked away.”
“They come to this area because they don’t have to deal with a lot of cartels like in Tamaulipas, the other states,” Lt. Efrain Valdez of the Eagle Pass Sheriff’s Department said.
Fox News reported that in Eagle Pass, illegal immigrants have killed pets, burglarized stores and rapped on homes’ doors late at night.
“I don’t feel safe,” Laura Ramos, who owns a business in the town, said, adding that she keeps “several weapons” at her store and has instructed her children how to use tasers. “It’s something that has had to be done because we don’t know what can happen. We don’t know these people or where they come from,” she declared.
Another resident noted his youngest sister heard someone rap on her bedroom window late at night. He said, “It’s pretty scary. We’re getting used to it already because unfortunately, nothing is really being done.”
