Texas Sheriff: ‘We’re Experiencing A Silent Invasion Of Military Age Men’

According to Kinney County Sheriff Brad Coe, what is occurring at the U.S. border with Mexico is in fact an invasion. Coe told The Center Square, “we’re experiencing a silent invasion of military age men,” when describing what his officers have experienced over the past two years. The “silent invasion” is being carried out by primarily single, military age men between the ages of 17 and 45 who are illegally entering the U.S. According to The Center Square, “they’re wearing camouflage and carrying backpacks, according to video captured by cameras placed throughout the county. Many are armed and dangerous, committing robberies and engaging in shootouts with law enforcement.”

The Invasion

According to Political Insider:

The men are believed to be working or associated with Mexican cartels. Once they arrive in major U.S. cities, they are embedded with gangs and or cartel affiliates acting like a “Trojan horse,” Coe said. “They set up in our cities, take over through voting and or crime, and scare the local people who move out. It’s happening in Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio,” he said, where crime has also exponentially increased over the last few years.

He said, “You can win a lot of battles without getting violent,” referring to the “silent invasion” as an act of war against the U.S. by Mexican cartels.

Coe last month sent out an SOS asking for help from other counties to apprehend human smugglers in his small border county of roughly 3,000 people. In response, law enforcement officers from 20 agencies participated in a days-long operation during which The Center Square participated in a ridealong.

The Defense

Coe says that more numbers will always result in better results when fighting against illegal immigration. He said, “the more people we have, the more effective we’ll be” at pushing smugglers and gotaways “out of the area.”

Coe, who took over his position in 2017, says things started to get out of hand ever since Joe Biden took office as president. Things first started getting bad after President Joe Biden altered border security and immigration policies, and have only gotten worse since, he states.

According to his offices records:

  • In 2022, Kinney County Sheriff’s deputies apprehended 3,192 illegal foreign nationals compared to the 1,124 they apprehended in 2021
  • In 2022, they apprehended 741 smugglers compared to 169 in 2021
  • Deputies engaged in 139 pursuits and 136 bailouts in 2022 compared to 61 pursuits and 56 bailouts in 2021
  • In 2022, they impounded 580 vehicles compared to 179 in 2021.
  • In 2022, deputies also seized 89 firearms carried by alleged smugglers, including some that were stolen, up from 29 in 2021.
