They're Coming To America
Yesterday, Zero Hedge reported on the freight train of illegal migrants headed to America's southern border. You can see video of those train-riding migrants below, accompanied by an an appropriate song.
Where are those migrants going after they get here? Some surely will be headed toward America's major cities, forcing Democratic mayors to eat more of their own open borders advocacy dog food. But some are likely headed to a place called Colony Ridge--an enormous settlement forty miles outside of Houston that's reportedly home to tens of thousands of illegal aliens. That this illegal alien ant colony is right under the nose of Texas Governor Abbott raises questions about how serious Governor Abbott's tough talk about securing his state's part of the border really is.
Reporter Spencer Lindquist of The Daily Wire wrote an eye-opening thread about Colony Ridge on X yesterday--I've posted it in full below. Before we get to that, a brief trading note, about another biotech lottery ticket.
Another Asymmetric Bet
In yesterday's post, I mentioned a successful biotech trade. We've got another biotech trade in the works, which you can read about here.

Now on to Spencer Lindquist's eye-opening thread about the giant illegal alien settlement in Texas and who's behind it.
If You Build It, They Will Come
Colony Ridge sprawls across nearly 60 square miles — about the size of Washington DC — and is 40 miles outside Houston.— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
Much of CR is a 3rd world shanty town, where foreign flags outnumber American ones.
But how do we know that it's a hotbed for illegal aliens? Let me show you. pic.twitter.com/fKeucLI1FU
For a company allegedly selling American real estate to Americans, they seem to have A LOT of foreign nationals in Latin America working for them.— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
Check out their LinkedIn profile. Why would Colombians sell American land to Americans?

The area is also said to be a strategic hub for the Gulf and Sinaloa cartels 400 miles north of the border, with law enforcement telling @BensmanTodd that both were early investors.— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
CR could eventually accommodate 200k people, with cartel elements undoubtedly blending in.
Meet State Rep. Ernest Bailes, who represents the district where Colony Ridge is located.— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
He took $1,800 from Harris, and his case is interesting.
His biggest donor is Randy Ellis — he owns the earthwork and clearing company employed by Colony Ridge. pic.twitter.com/gBwTO9ialM
Bailes got another $6,500 from the PAC for Coat and Rose, the law firm that Trey Harris has paid over $100k to for lobbying services.— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
Bailes has yet to respond to request for comment.
But Harris has donated to other politicians as well. pic.twitter.com/v5beoduYWR
Comms personnel for Luttrell said he is "not beholden to anybody," but his campaign has not yet responded to my inquiry, where I asked if they would return the donations from Harris or reject donations in the future.— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
What risks does Colony Ridge pose, and what can be done?
The @CIS_org's @BensmanTodd told The Daily Wire that "When people buy here, they’re buying peace of mind from law enforcement.”— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
“The Mexican cartels are very active in that they run safe houses, they run drugs, they do marijuana grows, they commit crimes."
@Michael_Yon told us that Colony Ridge isn't just a development, but that instead we're witnessing the creation of a city that may eventually hold 200,000 people, an untold number of whom will be in our country illegally.— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
I spoke with @JMichaelWaller, who explained “This is going to be cartel land near Houston and at risk of being a no-go zone.”— Spencer Lindquist 🇺🇸 (@SpencerLndqst) September 18, 2023
He warned that similar developments could be “planted in pockets around the country.”
