You gotta love these ranchers.
Not only did they just call out Nancy Pelosi in a big way, but they rubbed a little salt in the wound with their tagline:
“Don’t worry, we’ll send a plane for you!”
That’s an obvious reference to the fact that the last time Nancy tried to board a plane, she was unceremoniously (and gloriously) grounded by President Trump!
But amidst a funny line, the ranchers make clear this is a real offer due to a real and dangerous situation at the border.
Take a look:
Here's more, from Fox News:
A rancher in California said Tuesday that an offer by him and his fellow ranchers for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit the U.S.-Mexico border still stands.
Chris Burgard said on Fox & Friends First that their initial invite to Pelosi (Calif.) came four-and-a-half years ago, but she didn't accept.
He said that if Pelosi were to visit the border now, she'd have to "deal with facts" about how improvements in border fencing have been successful.
"What these ranchers live with every day is beyond the comprehension of most humans," he said.
Burgard added that trucks carrying drugs are breaking through ranch fences and leading to cattle running loose.
"It's not a good way to live," he said.
He also said that it was "disheartening" to hear Pelosi reject facts related to the border by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
"Right now, it's a fact that more people are dying in the United States from heroin and opioid overdoses than they are in car accidents," Burgard said.
He said that a report of border officials confiscating bags filled firearms at a private Texas ranch does not surprise him as well.

And from Breitbart:
Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends First,” rancher and Breitbart contributor Chris Burgard took his plea for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit his and others ranches on the U.S.-Mexico in Arizona to get a firsthand account of the threats coming from the south and the effectiveness of a wall versus a fence.
Burgard explained the situation, which initially involved heavy illegal alien and drug trafficking.
“Four-and-a-half years ago, she did not take us up on our invitation, and if she would she would have seen how bad things are,” Burgard said. “My buddy John, conservatively at the time, had 2 million illegal aliens come through his ranch. In two years, 53 truckloads of dope making it through there.”
Burgard credited improvements to the fence on his ranch and coordination with local sheriff’s departments for the decrease in drug trafficking and Pelosi would see the results.
“What these ranchers live with every day is beyond comprehension of most humans,” he said. “I mean, can you imagine 2 million strangers coming across your ranch? Try running a ranch operation when the trucks carrying the dope are breaking fences. Your cows are getting out, how do you run a breeding program when you can’t keep your bulls and heifers separated? And everything that hits him then goes on to the cities.”
The Arizona rancher criticized Pelosi for not taking Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen’s information more seriously because if she had, it could make a difference.
“You know, it is so disheartening when the Speaker of the House doesn’t believe DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen,” Burgard said. “She doesn’t believe her DHS facts. Well, right now it is a fact more people are dying in the United States from heroin and opioid overdoses than car accidents. Well, this is where it is coming from. If you stop it at the border, you will save lives in the rest of America, and it is just something that needs to be acknowledged, and you need to do something.”
Burgard insisted the initial offer made to Pelosi is still on the table.
