Selling land to Illegals in Texas: One report says cartels are moving in


Important Takeaways:

  • Thousands of illegal migrants buying land in new Texas development: Report
  • According to The Daily Wire, the new Colony Ridge settlement, with potentially tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, is being built north of Houston, prompting concerns that the development could become a base for cartel operations due to its location roughly 400 miles inside the United States.
  • In an investigative report, the Daily Wire found that the Colony Ridge development is currently comprised of over 60 square miles, which is roughly the size of Washington, D.C. The population is estimated to be between 50,000 and 75,000, largely due to a marketing strategy that is aimed at the Hispanic population in Texas.
  • The Colony Ridge development is owned by developer William Harris.
  • …buyers at the Colony Ridge development are able to purchase land with as little as a “few hundred dollars” for the down payment.
  • “The loan is directly from the developer, bypassing traditional mortgages,”
  • Harris’s company conducts business under the name of Terrenos Houston (translated Houston Land).
  • Terrenos Houston directs interested buyers to connect with the company on Whatsapp in order to find out more information about purchasing
  • While Terrenos Houston allows people to purchase land in the United States, the company’s LinkedIn profile suggests that many of the people currently employed by the company are foreign nationals who are living in Colombia and other Latin American countries.
  • Independent journalist Michael Yon shared his perspective of Colony Ridge with The Daily Wire after flying over and driving through the development multiple times in order to document its rapid growth.
  • “I don’t know how many live there now, but this is going to be big enough for 200,000 people,” Yon said. “They’re actually building a city.”
  • In his book, “OVERRUN: How Joe Biden Unleashed the Greatest Border Crisis in American History,” Bensman noted that law enforcement officials claimed Gulf and Sinaloa cartel members had purchased properties in Colony Ridge development.
  • “The Mexican cartels are very active in that they run safe houses, they run drugs, they do marijuana grows, they commit crimes,” Bensman said, based on conversations he has had with law enforcement officials. “This is a homeland security issue. It’s a public safety issue.”
