Linda Vickers says she never goes outside her home anymore without a gun and her cell phone. The illegal immigrant problem has gotten so bad, Vickers herself has reported 148 illegal immigrants to Border Patrol this year alone.
Vickers and her husband Mike own a ranch just south of Falfurrias. It’s where the Texas Border Volunteers, TBV, have their headquarters. TBV is a group of people from across the country who are doing what they can to help with the problem of illegal immigration.
The Texas Border Volunteers was formed seven years ago. Each member has to go through a background check and is carefully screened. They literally post patrols on ranches in Brooks County, watching for illegal immigrants.
