DHS Must Do Its Job - Rob Krentz Was Not Secure in His Homeland

DHS's Border "fence" south of the Krentz ranch

Glenn Spencer - American Border Patrol -- March 30

Last Saturday Rob Krentz and his dog were shot to death on his ranch in Arizona, most likely by an illegal alien who fled back into Mexico.
Rep. Gabriel Giffords (D-Az) said ranchers are in harms way in Cochise County because of the "sheer volume of [illegal] traffic."
The Krentz ranch is in a smuggling corridor that runs along AZ Route 80 (see map). Roger Barnett's ranch is in the same corridor. He has aided in the apprehension of more than 20,000 illegal aliens.
According to DHS the border south of the Krentz ranch is fenced off. Not so. The fence is really a vehicle barrier that is easily crossed by foot and vehicle ramp.
I live on a ranch in Cochise County. My house is ½ mile from the border. Smugglers used to cross my property all the time, but stopped after a real fence was installed. While the National Guard may help somewhat, the real solution to the border problem would be to complete the 700-mile double-layered fence authorized by Congress in 2006.
DHS should take its name seriously – the Department of Homeland Security. Rob Krentz certainly wasn't secure in his homeland.

Thought i would share this with you guys.. Brother was stationed in Sierra Vista before he did the OCS thing..This sorta led to the whole family moving out back in the late 70's.. Basically he's always lived there.. Did another 20 with DOD after retiring from the Army.. Spoke with him today on this, he said the community is pretty upset.. Like a lot of ranchers in the area the old boy was involved in helping the border patrol, and at the same time had a humanitarian side to him.. In other words he did not want the death of those trying to cross the property on his conscious.. All reports are that he was just a great stand up sort that you'd be proud to know..
The ranch goes back to 1907, and remember we didn't get statehood till 1912 so saying they have "roots" in the community is an understatement.. On top of all of this.. They killed the dog to.

Im hoping that what ever efforts we make from here on out can be made in this old boys memory..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

went to drive the cattle in and it was the first time they had packed heat to go get cows. They are really pissed about this, he was a very well liked guy. What was the line in shooter about shooting a mans dog?
