WAR ZONE: Border residents ‘on edge’ as gunfire spills over from Mexico

This is unnerving to residents in this Texas town. A Starr County community said they are tired of gunfire spilling over from Mexico.

As Reported by KRGV NEWS:

Border Patrol reported shots fired on Friday morning. At around 8:30 a.m., neighbors in Refugio, a small community by Rio Grande City, said a dead-end street was full of Border Patrol agents and Department of Public Safety officials.

Resident Rene Garza said his community has learned to live with all the violence.

Garza said he grew up in the border community. “Before we wouldn’t see shootings,” he said. “Now, if you stand here at night, you will hear shootings. It’s normal.”

Garza said many of his neighbors won’t talk about the illegal activity, because they fear retaliation. He said he’s tired of looking the other way.
