A Heavy Price for Open Borders
Remembering Rob Krentz

Rob Krentz -- the man WE lost

    Today marks the second grim anniversary of the murder of Arizona rancher Rob Krentz. The report on FOX News described the scene, speculated about the killer, spoke to neighbors about the smuggling of drugs and illegal aliens into the country, but only briefly described who we lost and what kind of man Rob Krentz was. "What a great guy he was," says his widow, Sue Krentz.
    For his family and friends, everything has changed. Holidays, birthdays, graduations, Christmas are all different. For Sue, there are reminders of Rob all around her, everywhere, every day, tragic reminders of the loss of a good man who had never done harm to anyone. In fact, Rob Krentz's life was one of giving and helping others, continuously. Sue remembers, "Rob was as methodical as the day is long. Dependable. He was a good man and deserves a good memory." [...]
    In 1975 Rob graduated from the University of Arizona with Honors and a B.S. in Animal Science. He was offered a fellowship at Cornell University but declined it to return home to run the family ranch because his dad needed help. [...]
    And the final, terrible, tragic irony is that this man, by every account a most dependable, reliable man who never, ever let anyone down, was ultimately let down by the government and the law of the country that he believed in.
    We all lost something when Rob Krentz was taken from us. Not just a father, a son, a husband and a friend, but also a citizen and a good man. And, unfortunately for us, America can't spare any good men, not at this time. We need everyone we've got.
