Description

A Texas Monthly investigation finds that "illegal immigration is exploding in Maverick County, which will soon become the busiest crossing point from Mexico into the U.S." The story describes how "ranches are being overrun by drug smugglers, houses robbed, cattle stolen," and "men have been shot and killed." The reporter focuses on the ranchers' dilemma - to flee "this modern-day war zone" or to "stay and fight." The story profiles Dob Cunningham, a rancher who has come across "an odd and sometimes tragic assortment of immigrants," and has also witnessed the shooting of a Mexican teenager.
