If you read biographies of the founders, Fox "news", from the beginning was more based on profit than truth.


and the relevance of that in this thread is what?

Like I said, famous last words.

For the OP, if you are concerned, pay attention to your instincts. Ladt year a couple boondocking in that area were murdered and their RV stolen. It wasn't illegals. They caught the two who did it.

Anyone who will commit a crime by break into a country will likely commit a crime to remain in the country. Breaking and entering does not require using force but only to enter without legal permission. That explains the distinction of people in the USA, i.e. citizens and illegal alien. Some are here legally and some are here illegally.

Who knows what someone else will do if they feel threatened or in danger? Its best to use good judgment and seek the advise of those who deal with law enforcement. Not the tourist board.

I don’t know. I sat in a waiting room last year and they had Fox News on. Near as I can tell it was just a soap box for a certain political party. I didn’t see anything that represented any kind of news. Actually getting tougher to find news in English. I get most of my news in German or Spanish. [emoticon].

Only to point out to the OP he is likely basing his fear on a story from a very unreliable source.

This thread makes me laugh.

Was Big Bend or Texas safer, or less dangerous last year? 3 years ago, 5 years ago, 10 years ago? Nothing has changed down here for the 50 years I've lived here. Do yourself a favor and turn off the TV.
