Texas governor orders state law enforcement officials to arrest illegal immigrants

The immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border isn’t improving, and it doesn’t appear as if President Joe Biden’s administration has much interest in fixing one of the most critical threat’s to the country’s safety.

According to The Hill, Biden’s inaction hasn’t stopped Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) from following through on his promise to protect the residents of his state, as the governor announced that state law enforcement officials have been ordered to begin arresting illegal immigrants, with dozens already in cuffs after the initiative launched this week. 

The governor’s efforts to make a dent in the illegal immigrant situation comes as part of promises made in June in which Abbott vowed not only to take a hardline stance on the issue but also vowed to complete former President Donald Trump’s border wall at the state’s border with Mexico.

Abbott and his team also had the foresight to figure out the logistics of where the arrested illegal immigrants will be detained, especially given the expected large number of arrests. As the Associated Press reported, an empty state prison facility in Dilley, Texas will be used to house the detainees.

According to a spokesperson for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, the facility can reportedly hold some 950 detained illegals.

The state presumably has other locations in mind as part of the plan, as some have predicted upwards of 200 illegals could be arrested on a daily basis as part of Abbott’s plan to mitigate the number of illegal aliens freely wandering around his state.

Val Verde County Attorney David Martinez warned that the rapidly increasing number of detainees will likely quickly overwhelm the capabilities of his office.

Martinez warned: “[Those numbers] would overwhelm not only my office, but our entire system pretty quickly.”

While the state undoubtedly has a monumental logistics challenge with regard to where the detainees will be held, at least Abbott has taken action to begin tamping down on a threat that poses a great danger to all Texans, which is far more than the Biden administration has done.

The invasion of illegals should be met with any force necessary to protect the US. These invaders are entering the US with no health screening and no ability to support themselves. They are a terrible danger to both the health and safety of Americans. The Biden criminal administration is destroying the US.

Why are Americans subject to the laws of America daily, while the illegals are entering from various enemy countries, with unknown past violent offenses, bringing possible contagious diseases, and lack of skills, or knowledge of our native language to endanger our streets, or be self-sufficient?
Each of these alone will put the responsibility of their existence on all honest, legal, law-abiding citizens, which will quickly drain our economy. We are being held captive by our own visibly, mentally incompetent Biden leadership. We are prisoners in our own land!
Experience and honesty are obviously lacking, which are sorely needed for America to survive!

I am absolutely in favor of shooting the illegals for resisting arrest. Even if it is only to itch their nose. Kill a couple hundred thousand and the rest will stop coming. Pile them up at the border and call it a border wall. Maybe stick a pole through them and stand them up like Vlad did.

There is no reason why the USA is allowing this invasion.

By the way if any liberals want to debate it honestly i would be happy to but you will loose becuse your logic as garbage.

It actually wouldn’t take shooting that many. The word would get out soon enough. Of course then they would try coming in through California and Arizona. Some might try to come through with weapons, but they do that anyway. Get ‘im, Abbott!

Be sure you post a “No Trespassing ” sign on your property. And look out for those people canvassing to see if you have taken the vaccine shot. I heard they can get pushy. Around here people are “locked and loaded.” No trespassing means just that!

If they break into my house they are getting shot when I am lightly stabbing myself and putting the knife firming in their dead hand and then dropping it on the floor.

Sleazy Joe has done what he’s been told to do almost like he knew what he was doing. His overseers want the border gone – they want these diseased non-English-speaking criminals wandering around inside our country. They think they will automatically vote Democrat, when in reality non-citizens cannot vote. Meanwhile REAL Democratic voters are beginning to realize their party is a clown show, so they will lose millions of actual voters. This is the one-dimensional thinking of the Democratic party.

I sincerely hope you are right about the REAL Democrats! There would then be hope that our next election could be held with some semblance of sanity. Biden (Obama) is nothing but an embarrassment to America! The joke has stopped being funny a long time ago! Americans need to
stop the insanity and choose capable, caring, and competent leaders – not an old, decrepit, man who spouts untruths and can’t remember why he is here; and, what he should be talking about. And, those who are propping him up are nothing but deceptive criminals and should be ashamed of themselves!

My thoughts are, Impeach Biden-Harris and Handlers Administration and Remove them Immediately from our White House and Capitol. They have literally broken their Oath’s to Protect America and it’s People. Broken our Illegal’s Immigrants Laws. By doing so have placed America and it’s People in very Dangerous Situation’s in more ways than one.
This Administration are pure Communist and want to be Dictator’s. This will not happen I Pray in America. They must be Stop. Their only Agenda has been to see how fast they can Destroy our Country 😡😡. Had this been our Beloved President Trump, he would have already been put out.
