Tyler, TX (KETK) — It's in published reports all over the country today like this is Front Page Magazine.
Officials say the number of people entering the U.S. illegally is way up.
The number of undocumented immigrants, who have been found dead in the unforgiving Texas Brush Country, is way up, too.
And, at this rate it’s on path this year to beat last year's record for the number of people found dead in the ranch country.
Linda Vickers, who owns a ranch in Brooks County, which is Ground Zero for the immigration debate, pins the blame directly on talk of “amnesty” and a “path to citizenship” for people who entered the U.S. illegally.
She recalls one man being arrested on her ranch not long ago.
"The Border Patrol agent was loading one man up, and he told the officer in Spanish, 'Obama's gonna let me go'."
Border Patrol agents report that immigrants are crossing the border, and in some cases surrendering while asking, "Where do I go for my amnesty?"
Meanwhile, the gang of eight are backslapping themselves because they supposedly have a deal on immigration.
And rumor has it, in the U.S. House, Speaker John Boehner is preparing to fold and be run over like a cardboard suitcase.
He ought to be ashamed.
In the meantime, if this goes through and you were here before December 31, 2011, you’re in if you can show any ID at all.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
