Default No crisis here!

I had to call a lockdown at my school district on Friday. It started when a BMW was pulled over by DPS about 30 miles from our school and when the trooper got out, the driver fled. Speeding over 100 mph the vehicle approach town and then everyone bailed. The bailout occurred a block from our district. The two coyotes were found on district property hiding out by the football field bleachers. None of the ďothersĒ (6 total) were caught. The driver was 14 years old from Lockhart Texas and his partner was 17 years old, also from Lockhart. As I was running through the playground to get kids inside, I could only think about how crazy this area is with all of the smuggling going on. We average 6-8 bailouts a day within 5 miles of our school.

But CNN says itís a made up crisis😳. Crazy that you have to deal with that almost every day. 14 year old driving at 100mph. What could possibly go wrong?

Unfortunately this happens way more often than people realize. This event happened a few weeks ago

6-8 a day, just in your area? That's insane.

My place is 90 miles from the border and we used to see some illegals a few times a year. now its a weekly occurence to see them on a trail camera or to find discarded items on the side of the county road.
chases and bailouts are happening within 5 miles of the ranch.

The ďBig MoneyĒ recruits young kids and pays them a fraction of what they pay experienced runners. These kids were probably going to make 500.00 total, while an experienced runner makes about 1000.00 per person. My kids were pretty sheltered at 14, they only hunted, drove only at the ranch and were thinking about what sport they were in at the time.

To be 14, fleeing from the law at 100 mph all the while smuggling 6 people from a different country sounds insane.

The plan is to destroy Texas and America by changing the electorate.

Sad day when you have to sweep buses for illegals and then escort softball and baseball players from class to the buses for their away games.

Had a truck bailout this morning near Big Wells.
Drove through my fence about 8:30.
Didnít even consider using my gate or ladder. Haha
Border patrol caught three of them. They were driving a stolen oilfield truck.
Talked to BP agent & he said they are overwhelmed.
Wonder if Sleepy Joe will reimburse me for the fence repair. Yea right

Family business, and the younger generations are joining the family business. If they get caught, they won't go to prison and won't be locked up very long.

Coming back from Bass Champs at Amistad Sunday, 4:30 pm on Hwy 90, three young men with backpacks come walking out under train overpass. They don’t even wait for darkness.
