Breitbart -- September 29, 2014   
    Gangs operating in Falfurrias, Texas have allegedly been the recipient of “a massive amount” of inbound wire transfers. The transfers are believed to be extortion payments to local gang members who allegedly kidnap illegal immigrants who are found hiking through the ranches of Brooks County to avoid the Falfurrias Border Patrol checkpoint. The immigrants are then held hostage until money is wired into the gang members – usually around one to three thousand dollars.
    “The local gang members grab up the illegal immigrants they find on the roadways or in the ranches of Brooks County,” said Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX) to Breitbart Texas in an exclusive phone interview. “They hold them hostage and then call the families of the illegal immigrants demanding a ransom payment to secure their family members release. This payment is sent by wire transfer to local businesses.
    Congressman Poe, who also served Texas as an assistant district attorney and criminal district court judge, told Breitbart Texas the illegal immigrants often are let go after their family’s payments have arrived only to be picked up again by another local gang member. Poe recently went on a tour of Brooks County after learning about the problems facing this impoverished county from Breitbart Texas’ news coverage. During the tour he went to the Brooks County Sheriff’s Office and met directly with Sheriff Rey Rodriguez and Chief Deputy Benny Martinez.
    Poe said he learned the local businesses had received so many of the inbound wire transfers; they became suspicious and notified local authorities. “A business in a small town of about 7,500 people like Falfurrias is certainly not used to receiving this large a number of high dollar wire transfers,” Poe explained.
