Thosny: Because just like these silly barriers, the whole idea that we are being over-run with illegal aliens is just that....NOISE
Cherry_Blossom_: Ranch Lessons 101. ( SOMEONE LIVING ON THE BORDER)
1/26/19 like any other normal day, I walked outside around 4:45pm to go feed the horses and as soon as I step one foot out the front door I hear just nonstop yelling. I look across the drive and just on the other side of our rock wall there are 4 men in hoodies, 2 w hoods up and 1 with a ballcap on...yep, you guessed it, illegals or lately known as 'desperate asylum seekers'...just screaming at me to go get them food and water. Hand signals and all, like hand to mouth 'feed me now' kind of sign language. And I mean they were SCREEEEAMING! Like I was 45 mins late w the pizza and beers they ordered kind of screaming at me! I don't say a word as I turn around, lock the doors and go back inside. I immediately go move the girls to the center of the house, grab my rifle and my pistol and come back to the kitchen and call the Border Patrol Station. I politely tell them that I have 4 very unwelcomed male illegals barking at me and explain that Dave literally had just left town to come home from work and has no cell service down the dirt rd until basically he hits the house. So roughly 45 more mins until he gets home. I'm told they will see if they can get someone free to send them out here to help because they were busy. And I know they were.
I walk back outside, with my pistol at my side and illegal #1 (a very cocky sob) starts barking at me again about where his food is at. Seriously?! Because I was apparently supposed to be making his rude ass fucking dinner while I was inside. My bad dude 🤷♀️🥪 let me tell my hungry kids they have to wait while I slave over the oven to make you something to eat for your bad decisions. Out of all the yelling, I hear one of them is screaming at me in english, so I ask who speaks english? Illegal #2 holds up his arm and says he does. Instantly all 4 of them assume I dont speak or understand spanish. Mistake #2. Their 1st mistake was coming to this house and acting like dicks. So illegal #2 seems to take control of his group and I start asking him how many more people were in his group. And just like every single illegal that's come here before him he tells me "just us..." I ask him the same question again but this time with 'mom tone', and again he lies to me. We have an exchange of words about how I know he's full of shit. Then he's telling me about how he's been sleeping out in the open and they havent eaten in 3 days and I need to go get them food "right now!". Same story the last guy told me, but shockingly he had food and water in his backpack...that's so weird that they all lie isnt it? I ask him where they crossed the river at and where they came up from to find the house. He throws his arms up as if saying from 'everywhere back here behind me'...which is the 100 ft tall canyon wall sooooooo yeah, noooooope. Lie again. He says "I have no reason to lie to you". I explain to him that he already has. We have another exchange of words until cocky illegal #1 mumbles some shit under his breath in spanish that I wish I had heard. At that point, my patience has worn thin with their bullshit and lies and them wasting my time. Then, out of the complete blue, cocky illegal #1 then in english and with a head nod and in his typical cocky fashion asks me "ehhh........where's your husband?" My heart literally sank. Then illegal #2, looking around, says "sooooo....your husband's not here right now then?" (You guys, just the way he said it, the look they gave one another and the look on his face as he processed what he just said was enough to send a chill down my spine!) And cocky illegal #1 starts muttering in spanish to the rest that my "husband isnt home, I'm by myself" and that they "can go down further around that way" signaling with his hand down past the house. My heart starts racing as I'm listening and watching to see what their next move is going to be. We have another very LOUD exchange of words and I turn around and walk back inside, while they all start screaming at me once again. Cocky illegal #1 with his hood up then makes a quick move and starts climbing the rock wall acting like he's coming over the rock wall and coming towards the house/front door/me. I step right back out the door and with my pistol, which I've found speaks a very universal language, explain to them all, very very clearly, that if any of them make a move for my house, or my front door then I would be forced to consider that a threat and I will use whatever means and force necessary to protect myself and my family! Illegal #2 tells everyone to sit down and shut up and then cocky illegal #1 and I have the most uncomfortable exchange of death glares as he slowly crawls back over the wall.
Now just to be clear...for those who are not fortunate enough to be graced constantly with illegals showing up at your front door...this is NOT how most (obviously not all) of the previous illegals who have shown up here have acted. Those who have been abandoned in the brush by their guides and/or are lost or injured or the elements have proven themselves too much and they sincerely need help, do not act like this. I can tell these guys are not here to simply give up...they WANT/need food and water...or something else and that itself made the dynamics of the situation different than usual. Especially for me who has a 3 and a 1.5 yr old to protect and keep safe.
I go back inside, keeping my eyes on them, check the girls and the clock. At this point, I'm watching out my kitchen window as 3 of them quickly jump up and wrestle their backpacks on and start quickly marching down towards the creek. I watch them disappear into the brush and out of sight. I check the other window and illegal #2 is still out front. I know time is ticking down until Dave shows up. I'm finally able to get a hold of Dave on his cell which means he's 'up top' of the canyon (up top is 1.5 miles from the house and you get cell service for a short time here because you're at a high spot) and ask him to hurry up because these guys are acting shady as hell, I'm uncomfortable AF and that they asked where my husband was at! (Who asks where you're husband's at unless they have something to gain by him not being home?!) I tell him 1 body is still here and 3 had marched off. In the minutes that passed before Dave got home, the 3 illegals decided to come back to the same spot where the 4th was still at. Why? Who knows, maybe they heard his truck coming, got spooked and came back, idk. But I am so thankful they did so that I didnt have to go to sleep worrying about 3 outstanding illegals wandering around the creek right by the house as it got dark. Especially that shady cocky illegal #1.
Within minutes Dave shows up and I cannot remember a time in my entire adult life where I felt more relieved than in that moment. And not even 10 mins later Border Patrol shows up and takes them into custody. Thank you Border Patrol for coming all the way out here and helping me out!!! I have always been able to count on our local Border Patrol for every single encounter we have happen at our home and I am always grateful for how quickly they respond.
We are on our 5th year living out here on this ranch and the stories that can be told about encounters with illegals here on this property are mind blowing and stuff nightmares are made up from. Rape, dead bodies, one armed murderers, finding naked male illegals in your bed, stolen trucks, your chickens being eaten, 10k telephone poles being burned, someone washing filthy 'unmentionables' in the kitchen sink over your dishes, your clothes being stolen out of your dryer, an illegal cutting themself while breaking into your home and bleeding all over your house, dopers peering in your windows in the dark of night and so on and so on... But I have been noticing a pattern, and our encounters have been becoming more and more intense like this one. There has been a 'shift' and the illegals are becoming more combative and less compliant. Not all of them are like this, but the last few have all been pretty intense interactions. At least for me. Desperate people in desperate situations will do desperate things I suppose. Which is why I treat every single one of these illegals the same way when they show up here. I know how being a female out here in the middle of no where looks or what being 'alone' out here looks like to a lot of illegals that show up. It makes me appear vulnerable. Especially to 4 men who are desperste to not get caught by Border Patrol. But I also know what I am capable of as a woman and as a mother. A good percentage of illegals in this area have criminal backgrounds. It is never my job to wonder what someone's intentions are when they show up here. My job is and always will be to keep my babies safe. Their safety and well being come before everything else in this world. But I am so tired of being told that illegals are just poor helpless 'asylum seekers' coming here for a better life. People sincerely need to have a better sense of reality and experience to understand how false that truly is. Yes, of course there are people trying to come here and take advantage of what opportunities the US provides, and for a better life. But guess what...not all of them are. There are so so sooooo many aggravated criminals walking right over the border and into our communities. Illegals are being coached on what to say if they get caught. We see it. We live it. It's happening every day out here. I pray for the safety of my husband every day. I pray for the safety of all our Border Patrol agents. They have a tough job and are being portrayed so negatively lately and it isnt accurate at all. I pray for the familes that live along the border of Mexico that are forced to deal with and endure the constant harrassment and vandalism of illegals. And I pray that God continues to protect my family out here from these criminals. Illegals are a problem.
Anyways, just another day on the ranch, on the border...
ANOTHER DAY HER AND HER FAMILY GOT THROUGH~ BY THE GRACE OF GOD ... BUILD THAT WALL ~~ MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!
