Texas House Passes Legislation to Empower Local Police to Arrest Migrants
Well, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that he was going to take matters into his own hands, and that is what is happening right now in the Texas legislature.
Now that the impeachment hearing of Attorney General Ken Paxton is over, the State House is back in business, and it hit the ground running.
Three bills passed through the Texas State House this week, all aimed at arresting and deporting illegal immigrants and bolstering the border.
Lock It Down
The first bill that was passed and will earmark $1 billion for the construction of border barriers. A second bill will increase sentences for anyone convicted of human trafficking.
House Bill 4 is the third bill, which will empower local police to arrest and deport illegal immigrants taken into custody in Texas.
Needless to say, the bills were passed with partisan votes, as Democrats were livid that the GOP was doing something to lock down the border in Texas.
State Rep. Cody Harris (Palestine) ended the debate by making a motion to block new amendments to the bill, which passed with a vote of 84-60.
State Rep. Armando Lucio Walle (Houston) stated, "It hurts us to our f---ing core.
"And you don’t understand that. You don't live in our skin. And that’s what pisses me off."
What is there to understand? These people are breaking the law to come over the border, so they should not be permitted to enter this country, especially now that Biden is trying to block Texas from being able to send these migrants out of state.
State Rep. David Spille (Fort Worth) defended the legislation, stating, "It is a humane, logical and efficient approach.
"There is nothing unfair about ordering someone back from where they came if they arrived here illegally."
The numbers were recently reported for Fiscal Year 2023, setting yet another overall record for encounters.
Biden is not doing anything to stop it, so Abbott will… God Bless the great state of Texas!
