We all depended on each other there wasnít really a problem. The illegals never hurt anything, if they broke in to a house it was just to get water or something to eat, they never took anything. Them times have changed, now you're scared to death of Ďem because a lot of Ďem are drug dealers, they're bringing drugs across, I mean thatís what the cartel that came across here were were drug dealers, and times have changed you know oh like they would steal guns out of peoples ranch houses and you used to never hear of that or very very seldom they were just people trying to make a living you know try to earn a living now we have a lot that are, just like a lot of white people, dishonest. We have the possibility that they could rob, steal and kill out here you know because you canít get a law enforcement officer to my house within 35 minutes if he is ready to go get in his car and you can do a lot of damage in 30, 35 minutes but you know itís according a lot of them used to come here and work until they got enough money to get a bus ticket up north and if they could get up north and get away from the border then they felt like they had a better chance of not getting caught or people not thinking about them being illegal. Tommy was telling me today that a dairy farmer, I believe it was in Wisconsin had 3000 milk cows now thatís a big milking outfit and he had I think 200 illegals working for him and they sentenced him to like 20 years in prison and fined him over a million dollars and you know those guys were probably making pretty good money. So I mean itís a two way street you know i mean itís not always bad and itís not always good itís just according to the individuals, you've got. They couldnít make enough money down there to feed their families and they could if they came over here. ĎCause they could send money back and everything was taken care of here they didnít have to pay rent, they didnít have to buy groceries, they were fed, they were watered, they were closed you know.
