Texas border town business owner sells family BBQ restaurant after multiple migrant break ins


From WWW.FOXNEWS.COM

A business owner near the U. S. southern border said she was forced to sell her family honky-tonk after the venue was broken into on five separate occasions since February.

“I worked alongside my father for 19 years,” said Selena Buentello Price, the former second-generation owner of The Wagon Wheel, a local barbeque joint. “One break-in in 25 years.”

“From February to now, I’ve had five,” Price said. “Not only has my business been broken into and ransacked—it’s just the insecurity now, you don’t feel safe at home anymore.”

Price said migrants arriving in Eagle Pass often look for shelter and supplies in vacant buildings. Her family restaurant, which had been shuttered since the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, was a frequent stop.

The Del Rio sector of the southern border, which includes the small town of Eagle Pass, has had 375,000 migrant encounters since October last year, according to Customs and Border Protection. Price says migrants have “completely overrun” the small town leading residents and business owners to feel insecure.

Price said she has taken to surveilling her buildings in the early hours of the morning to monitor for migrants.

“I’m so scared that they’re going to steal something that was a family heirloom of mine and depreciate the value even more by rummaging through my stuff and breaking that building,” she said…. (Read more)
