“Anyone who tells you the border is secure is full of crap.”
Arizona ranchers, living along the U.S. Mexico border, have issued an invitation to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to visit their ranches. The invite was made five years ago and is making the rounds again in response to the government shut down.
In the Facebook video, rancher and community leader, John Ladd, offers to send a plane for the Speaker and invites her to stay at his home. “I want to invite Nancy Pelosi here. She went to Texas to see the kids,” said Ladd referring to the surge of Unaccompanied Alien Minors. “So come here and see where the dope and bad guys are coming through the border.”
Davis, who along with Ladd has visited the Capitol over the years to bring attention to the plight of the ranchers tells Pelosi in the video, “Your $2 million dollar a mile fence is trash.”
The video concludes with rancher Chris Bergard telling Pelosi, “Anyone who tells you the border is secure is full of crap.”
The three ranchers issued the invitation to the Speaker while standing in front of a portion of the border fence that is little more than barbed wire.
