Texas landowners are demanding federal funding for property damage caused by illegal immigrants.
In an interview Wednesday, a board member of the South Texans Property Rights Association urged the government to secure a border. She said landowners face daily invasions of illegal immigrants, such as passing through fences and gates, invading hunting camps, and destroying private property.
Local law enforcement agencies and city officials have reportedly received $ 30 million in federal funding to repay local communities and non-governmental organizations that have spent large amounts of money on immigrant care. But the landowners say they have been overlooked.
“I don’t want to compete with law enforcement money for reasons such as car theft. So where does it come from? It keeps the landowner high and dry,” said Susan Kibby. ..

Kibe said he was working with county authorities to make changes and pay attention to the issue, but emphasized the need for federal support. “It’s the federal government’s job to secure the border,” she added.
“It’s getting very expensive,” she said. “We haven’t heard anything from the federal government about supporting private property owners.”
