A Rancher’s-Eye View of the Border

Coming up is the first anniversary of the murder of Arizona rancher Rob Krentz by an illegal alien. To shed some light on what it’s like for people actually living in the border region, my colleagues Janice Kephart and Bryan Griffith have produced another video, this one a rancher’s ground-level take on the border-control issue. (“Ground-level” might not be the right word because the rancher, former state policeman Richard Humphries, has actually built an observation tower next to his home to spot illegal-alien trespassers, sort of a man-cave in the sky.) Anyway, much of the video is in Humphries’ own words and it helps give you some sense for daily life near the border.
