They were a hard-working family that wanted to make an
honest living for themselves and their future generations; yet, for the Aplin
family, their desire to live out the American Dream was anything but times of
happiness. In the new book, Prey for the Enemy, author Annie Aplin recounts the
tragic saga to befall her family when they took part in the seafood industry in
small town, Seadrift, Texas. After a tornado devastated the family farm in
Georgia, the Aplins and their eight children decided to enter the seafood
industry in Florida.
Noticing the seafood market was better in Texas, the family
moved to Seadrift and saw their investment in the market thrive. That is until
they dealt with the massive influx of Vietnamese fisherman after the fall of
Saigon. Tensions continued as the family noticed, and even caught, the
fisherman stealing out of the family's traps, but the struggle took a fatal turn
when six fishermen shot and killed Annie's brother, Billy Joe, after he
confronted them about their threatening actions toward the family. Six months
later, after even more threats were sent to the family, Annie's sister and
brother-in-law, Josie and Dale, turned up missing and were later found dead.
One would think that such clear, malicious actions would be properly punished
by the government, but the Aplin family found the opposite happen, as the local
government said there was nothing they could do and the media portrayed their
story with lies and deceit.
Prey for the Enemy is Annie's call to action to the
government and American citizens everywhere that what happened forty-one years
ago, in 1979, shouldn't continue to happen today. Yet it still does, and Annie
still fights for justice and change to happen for immigration laws and
regulations so her family didn't die in vain.
