Most of the illegals that make it through the border patrol are harmless, if you are worried about that... Except for the terrorists that are making there way up through the tunnels and Big Bend area that is less patrolled. But, you should be able to distinguish between the accents :-) Just get yourself a gun Annie! Always be prepared to protect yourself whether it's from a cougar or a terrorist. And we have a ton of cougars and rattlesnakes here LOL!
