Small Texas Town Terrorized By Cartel Members, Resident Begs for Border Wall

Residents of the small Texas town of Encino (pop. 143), located on a major smuggling route between McAllen and Falfurrias, are being terrorized by cartel members and at the same time are seeing a massive influx of migrants abandoned by smugglers.

KVEO-TV spoke to a resident who described the terror her family and neighbors go through. The resident begged for a border wall to be built.

Excerpt from the KVEO report:

An Encino, TX resident says she lives in fear every day. She sees hundreds of undocumented immigrants attempting to enter her property, adding she feels threatened by criminal organizations surrounding the area.

“12 young men dressed in black. My husband automatically stopped and they just put a finger to their lips and it’s like… You better not say anything, they know what we drive, they know where we live.”

“Soila”, who did not want to show her face for security reasons, says County Road 304 in Encino, which is only 7 miles away from the Falfurrias checkpoint is used by cartel members to smuggle drugs and people.

“There was a young man, he kept telling him [husband] to stop right at the gate, he kept coming. My husband clocked the gun and right on his left-hand side, 12-15 more people pop out, they were trying to get in towards the house.”

…“Soila” adds a wall is needed to protect U.S. Citizens.

“Whoever tells you there is no danger out here and we don’t need the wall, they have no idea what they’re talking about. They don’t care as long as the businesses keep thriving in McAllen or Brownsville.”

She says everyone in her neighborhood is terrified when they call on the Border Patrol due to threats they receive by drug smugglers.
