Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that Texas will complete the Border Wall left unfinished, as President Biden seems to have forgotten that America even has a border.
In a recent interview with Breitbart News, Governor Abbott said Texas “will immediately begin building border barriers in areas where migrants can easily cross the Rio Grande border with Mexico.”
“The influx across the border is out of control, and the Biden Administration has shown that is not going to step up and do its job,” Governor Abbott told Breitbart “And amidst reports of even more people coming in across the border, we know we have to step up and do more.”
“They’re seeing a lot of very bad dangerous people come across the border,” Abbott said “People that they are afraid of encountering, people who are causing damage to their fences, their livestock, their crops, their neighborhoods, and their homes.”
“Bad things are happening around here, and so they need help from the state to help them address this exploding crisis.”
Governor Abbott warned illegal immigrants thinking of making the journey “If you come to Texas, you’re subject to being arrested. You’re not going to have a pathway to roam the country. You’re going to have a pathway directly into a jail cell.”
“We want to be very aggressive in working with local officials and begin making mass arrests,” Abbott stated. “In working in collaboration with a large number of counties — that means we’re going to be arresting a lot more people.” Abbott plans on creating more available jail cells for illegal immigrants who violate American laws attempting to cross the border into Texas.
“If they [migrants] move or interfere with that barrier, they have committed several crimes.”
“Those crimes include criminal mischief, vandalism of state property or local government property, and criminal trespass. In addition, the recent declaration of a State of Emergency by the State of Texas causes the penalties for these crimes to increase by one level.” reported Breitbart
“That means up to 180 days in jail,” Abbott continued. “Something that may be a Class B misdemeanor right now, turned into a class A misdemeanor. And so they can get into a lot of trouble.” “There’s even potential for state jail felonies for some of these crimes,” he explained. “So they can wind up in jail for a long time.”
“With your help, we can apprehend more of these perpetrators of state and federal crimes before they can cause problems in your state,” the two governors advised. “Texas and Arizona have stepped up to secure the border in the federal government’s absence, and now, the Emergency Management Assistance Compact gives your State a chance to stand strong with us.”
Governor Abbott anticipates a “high level of participation.”
His reason: “I’ll tell you why, the immigration issue and the border issue is not just the number one issue of Texas, it’s the number one issue in America. And so all of these other governors, they hear the same concerns that we hear about in Texas.”
Abbott finished the interview by saying, “Texas already has done more than any other state to secure the border, but we know that more has to be done. And we’re stepping up to undertake an unprecedented response to the border crisis caused by the federal government.”
“In the end, only the federal government and Congress can fix this, but as it stands right now, the state of Texas is going to step up and we’re going to start making arrests — sending a message to anybody thinking about coming here, you’re not going to get a free pass to the U.S. They’re getting a straight pass to a jail cell.”
Senator Ted Cruz, highlighted the monthly increase in just “apprehended” illegal immigrants, without measure of the thousands who crossed illegally and did not get caught.
The Horrors Inside of Our Texas Immigration Facilities
We currently have an overflow of illegal immigrants in our country. Far more than we know what to do with. Hundreds of unaccompanied minors separated from their families locked in detention facilities, wrapped in tin foil.
Project Veritas exposed the horrific and inhumane conditions of the Donna, Texas Immigration Facility, as well highlighted the evasion of the Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
We have an immigration crisis. This is what happens when the United States gets flooded with more immigrants than we have the resources to help, which is why we have an immigration system in the first place. The U.S. Border pandemonium started with President Biden, and will end with Governor Abbott.
