Those of you who followed my posts over the years, along with the same who worked the border in the Campo area of California, are well aware of the story of this old 76 Chevy Suburban, affectionately known as Godzilla. I inherited it years ago and then finally sold it a few years back to another long time border operator who could not bear to see this historical old battle horse go to the scrap yard.  What you might not know, however, is that another long time border watcher and Original Minuteman bought one just like it only better (it runs, is newer and is licensed). He used it on the border for years. It was red then but now is primered and ready for camo.  I recently received  a phone call and email from this patriot indicating this fine 4X4 is now up for sale!  I sure wish I had the money cause I would buy it for sure.  Below is a photo of this vehicle at Patriot Point taking part in the 1st Annual Robert Rosas Off Road Run. And below the pic is the description of the storied ride.  Asking price is $2500.00 Contact me at to be put in touch with the owner. Let’s keep it on the border “doin work!”-C1

SBI After Action Report 25AUG14

 While I was honored to be a participant on this mission this report was prepared  and submitted by the “Watch Adviser”. Thanks to him and all the members of the team.- C1

“We checked camera footage from the last two months in a busy drug smuggling area in Arivaca, AZ, a part of the border with no fencing for dozens of miles.  A group of at least 10 packers and one scout appeared to empty their makeshift burlap backpacks in front of our camera likely to load into a waiting vehicle just beyond visual range.  After some apparent confusion running back down the trail with the unpacked cellophane wrapped bales; they moved the load into position and were gone.”

“Recent heavy rains caused almost overnight plant growth that made gaining footage more difficult as well as covering any recent sign of activity. 

Arivaca 8-23-14
Burlap Pile 8-23-14
Water Bottle 8-22-14
Border Patrol has also moved a high end MSS (Mobile Surveillance System) into the area, according to the ranch owner, as a direct response to trail camera footage aired in recent news stories. 
Even with all of this, Border Patrol chased cartel scouts from nearby high points overnight indicating that traffic was still very busy.”

The goal of getting this large gap of border fenced has just begun.

SBI Special Report – 08/28/14 -Brooks County

Brooks County (Texas) remains a busy human-smuggling corridor despite the reported drop in illegal crossings.

The reason is that human and drug smugglers are attempting to evade the Border Patrol checkpoint on US-281 south of Falfurrias by traversing through the  surrounding private property.   As usual, area residents and ranchers become the daily victims of the Federal Government’s failure to secure the border.

Texas map w:Brooks
Note: has been on the ground since July 19th monitoring USBP radio traffic that is broadcast “in-the-clear” (un-encrypted) from the busy McAllen Border Patrol Sector. It is estimated that un-encrypted radio traffic comprises less than 30% of the total activity for any given time period so our reports are extremely conservative from actuality.

Some (but not all)  of the monitored radio transmissions include GPS coordinates  which we have plotted on the enclosed map/link to give you a “thousand foot view” of the smuggling corridors in the Rio Grande Valley. This view is an “eye opener” and  corroborates the pleas for help by area residents and ranchers who have to deal with this daily criminal onslaught of illegal aliens and drug smugglers.

Brooks County

– Red flags are confirmed drug incidents.
– Yellow flags are human smuggling and any incident that could not be confirmed as �6′ (drug smuggling)
–  The red diamond on US-281 (just south of Barrosa) marks the location of the Border Patrol Checkpoint
- Note: Human and Drug smugglers attempting to evade the US-281 checkpoint is the reason why   Books County is experiencing the high volume of smuggling traffic in the surrounding ranch lands.

Brooks County Landowners Want Unified Front against Illegal Immigration

Posted: Aug 20, 2014 7:05 PM


The ranchers feel different groups along the border are sending mixed messages about the reality of the border crisis.

Recent remarks by McAllen Chamber of Commerce officials forced a group in Brooks County to draft a letter asking for the truth to be told about illegal immigration.

El Tule Ranch sits 9 miles West of Falfurrias. It covers 13,000 acres of Texas landscape.

“This is not too much land, comparatively speaking with other ranches. King Ranch, Armstrong Ranch, Cage Rranch, Jones Ranch. A lot of those ranches are a heck of a lot bigger,” ranch manager Lavoyger Durham said.

Durham has spent the past 24 years patrolling the ranch. He says he’s found half a dozen bodies. He said buzzards often let ranchers know that a body is nearby.

Fifty two illegal immigrants were found dead in Brooks County this year.

“That in itself shows how many people have been coming through,” said Susan Kibbe, executive director for the South Texas Property Rights Association.

Kibbe said landowners are dealing with constant property damage.

“Whether it’s gates, fences, watering places, break ins into hunting camps, property stolen, vehicles stolen,” she said.

A few weeks ago, the mayor of Laredo told the Texas political website Quorum Report that his city’s crime rate was down. McAllen’s Chamber of Commerce told the website that sending the National Guard to the Valley sends the wrong message to businesses looking to move to the region.

Kibbe disagrees.

“We respect their input and opinion, but we have a different reality,” Kibbe said.

Kibbe said the reality is much different in Brooks County.

“We wanted to make sure they understood where we were coming from as well,” she said.

Kibbe says she wants lawmakers to hear a united voice that help is needed to fight illegal immigration throughout South Texas.

CHANNEL 5 NEWS reached out to the mayor of Laredo and the McAllen Chamber of Commerce to get a response, but they didn’t respond.

Note: Most of the activity where GPS coordinates are indicated occurred in remote areas at considerable distances north of the border. Activity along
the border/ Rio Grande River is generally referenced using landmarks familiar to agents and pilots (levees, roads, pumps, POEs, sugar cane fields) instead of using GPS coordinates.  Most of the larger size groups were detected at the border/Rio Grande River…. having just crossed to the US side or staging on the Mexican  side to come across.
