Texas farmers are fed up with the Biden administration’s failure to do much of anything to address the border crisis — and now they are demanding the White House pay for damages caused by its immigration policies.
According to the New York Post, several farmers in Texas were forced to foot the bill to fix damages created by illegal immigrants, ranging from damaged property, stolen vehicles, fences, and so on.
But there’s another major issue that most may never have heard of: “fever ticks.”
Richard Guerra, a Texas rancher, told the New York Post that many illegal immigrants have fever ticks from their long journeys to the U.S., which in turn get dropped on the properties when they are sneaking into the U.S.
A study from Texas A&M University found that fever ticks carry pathogens that create “Texas Cattle Fever,” which can be a fatal disease.
There is currently no medication or vaccine to combat or prevent the disease.
Guerra said it can cost up to $400 an hour to hire helicopters to spray to kill the fever ticks and it would require some time to quarantine for a while if they are infected.
The Joe Biden border crisis is literally getting worse by the day.
Texas State Troopers made a stunning discovery this week when they stopped a semi-truck driver near Laredo, Texas, and found 105 illegal immigrants hiding in the trailer.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials announced on Friday that a whopping 188,829 illegal aliens crossed into America in June 2021, the most in any month for the past 21 years.
Since Biden took office, there have now been over 1 million crossings this yea, according to data from CBP.
And the crisis is only getting worse.
Below are the monthly totals of illegal border crossings dating back six months:
Former Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Ron Vitiello is calling out Joe Biden for directly being involved in creating and allowing the border crisis to worsen by the day.
During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Vitiello said the “root cause” of the border crisis is Biden’s decision to reverse several immigration policies enacted by Donald Trump.
“Working with Guatemala, working with the Northern Triangle on governance and anti-corruption activities, that’s all well and good, but that’s not going to stop the surge that’s occurring on the border right now,” Vitiello said.
“We’ve encouraged people to send or bring their children to the border and the root cause of the chaos is the reversal of the policies,” he continued.
