A Texas farmer claims he saw eight migrants fleeing border agents break into his 95-year-old grandfather’s house – as one said ‘we just want to get to New York’.
The man, who can see the border wall from his front door, said in a video posted to TikTok on Wednesday that the men “rushed” to his house first, but were unable to get through the locked door.
The migrants then made their way to the nearby grandfather, where they rushed inside, barricaded the doors behind them and hid behind the kitchen island and in the pantry.
He even allegedly heard one of the men say, “We just want to get to New York.”
The farmer, who has chosen not to disclose his identity, told Fox News that dealing with migrants has become a “daily occurrence”.
“These guys just shoved our houses. I mean trying to open doors, trying to get in,” he said. “Not everyone is like that and I agree with that, but these guys were trying to run away and get into our houses. It was pretty bad.
The video, which included alleged security footage of the incident and was posted with the tag #letsgobrandon, garnered widespread attention and more than 136,000 likes. The comments are littered with well-wishers applauding the farmer for showing the realities of life in a border town.
The ranch, which the man says has been in the family for more than a century, has property that spans the border wall and runs along the Rio Grande. In a later video, the anonymous farmer said he doesn’t blame US Customs and Border Protection for not having enough manpower to cover the vast swath of land along the border.
The farmer posted several other videos of migrants casually crossing his land after crossing the border.
“Gotta love Obamacare, or what the fuck is Biden’s plan?” he says.
The man, who identifies as Hispanic, told Fox he viewed the migrant crisis as a “humanitarian issue” and blamed the Biden administration as well as Texas Governor Greg Abbott for exacerbating the problem.
The farmer did not immediately respond to The Post’s requests for comment.
On Tuesday, border officials revealed they had arrested a record 2 million illegal immigrants in the past 11 months at the southern border.
Nearly 8,000 migrants cross the southern border every day, of whom around 2,000 find refuge in El Paso, Texas daily.
Abbott has been ferrying migrants to progressive cities since April, inspiring other border states to follow suit.
