FALFURRIAS – People in Brooks County say they’re seeing more illegal foot traffic.

KRGV’s Christian von Preysing explains what local ranchers are planning to do in response to this.

Dr. Michael Vickers runs one of the long-standing veterinarian clinics in Falfurrias and also owns land along Highway 281 – a corridor commonly known to carry people into the country illegally.

He formed a group that’s been patrolling the brush on local ranches for years.

He says the group has saved lives.

Vickers explains the group will begin patrolling the brush again this month.
