Texas landowners demand federal funds for property damage to migrants: “We heard nothing”



A representative of South Texas landowners said Wednesday that the property damage caused by the influx of migrants called for federal help “because it is the job of the federal government to secure the border.”

Kibbe’s comments came after Senator John Cornyn, R-Texas, met with local leaders in Del Rio, Texas to discuss the impact of the influx of migrants on the community.

At the meeting, landowners raised concerns that their property had been affected by the influx of migrants and that the issue was being overlooked. The South Texans’ Property Rights Association said landowners suffered property damage and worker shortages.
