Texas Governor To Arrest Those Illegally Crossing the Border
It’s clear that the Biden administration and the federal government as a whole will not do their duty to secure our border. Thankfully, Texas governor Abbott is taking it upon himself to arrest those crossing the border illegally.
Sean Hannity discussed the border issue with Gov. Abbott.
Gov. Abbott made it clear that those individuals illegally entering Texas pose a very real threat to the local citizens. Threats include widespread and severe damage, injury, and loss of life and property.
The Texas governor isn’t playing games as he intends to enforce local laws that could land illegal aliens up to a year in jail.
Western Journal reports:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has proposed a novel and likely effective solution to remedy the ongoing border crisis: arresting everyone who illegally enters his state.
The news follows Abbott’s disaster declaration on Monday, the text of which established that “the ongoing surge of individuals unlawfully crossing the Texas-Mexico border poses an ongoing and imminent threat of widespread and severe damage, injury, and loss of life and property,” and thus constituted a disaster.
In a clip from a Fox News interview posted on Sean Hannity’s website on Thursday, the Republican governor made it clear that Texas will do everything it can to defend itself from the unprecedented masses of illegal immigrants flooding the border and seeking to take advantage of the Biden administration’s lax policies, including leveraging the disaster declaration to make the necessary arrests of illegal immigrants.
“We’re about to change the way that Texas addresses the challenges along the border,” Abbott said, “and we’re going to start by helping these 34 counties [along the border] respond by increasing arrests. We got a new game in town in the state of Texas that’s going to begin next week.”
“The law that I’m going to use will be legal ways in which Texas is going to start arresting everybody coming across the border,” he said. “Not just arresting them, but because this is now going to be aggravated trespass, they’re going to be spending a half a year in jail if not a year in jail, as well as other actions that I will be announcing next week.”
Texas has stepped up to do Biden's job at the border.
Now, TX is about to take action that no state has ever taken to crack down on anybody crossing the border.
