    Ranchers Fed up with Destruction Immigrants Leave Behind
    Posted: Jan 21, 2014 7:20 PM


    HIDALGO COUNTY - Illegal immigration is forcing a rancher to move his livestock away from a property along the Rio Grande.

    Jose Cavazos said it's become nearly impossible to maintain his fences. He said immigrants damage them when they flee from Border Patrol agents.

    Cavazos isn't the only rancher dealing with the destruction.

    Damaged fences lead to stray cattle, ranchers said.

    "They completely destroyed the fence. I had to move (the livestock) to another 76 acres," Cavazos said.

    Cavazos lives along the Rio Grande, just south of Mission.

    Cavazos said Border Patrol boats force illegal immigrants onto his property. He said it costs him thousands of dollars to fix the damage.

    The immigrants also leave behind inner tubes and other refuse.
    CHANNEL 5 NEWS Reporter John Bartell spoke with Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) about the issue.

    "That is a problem we need to address. It's not just the undocumented aliens that cross, but sometimes it's Border Patrol that crash and do damage," Cuellar said.

    Cuellar said the U.S. Government Accountability Office is working on a one-year study that may lead to restitution for landowners.
