One of the biggest problems facing our nation right now is the unchecked flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border.
Joe Biden and the Democrats are making it worse.
But Texas Governor Greg Abbott just made one announcement about illegal immigration that will infuriate Joe Biden.
The first six months of Joe Biden’s Presidency have been one disaster after another.
But out of all the problems facing our society, illegal immigration is one of the most pressing, as Democrats continue to not only allow illegal aliens to flood across the border, but to also help them evade capture and deportation once inside the country.
Of course, this isn’t surprising given the fact that Joe Biden promised to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens during the 2020 campaign.
As a result, illegal immigrants have been rushing toward the border since Biden’s first day in office.
And no state has been hit harder than Texas.
But Texas Governor Greg Abbott has had enough of Biden refusing to address the border crisis.
And during a recent interview with Fox News, Abbott announced his plan to handle illegal immigration, saying that while Biden’s policy is catch and release, Texas’s new policy will be catch and jail.
“[W]hat Texas is doing – we’re not playing games anymore,” Abbott said. “I deployed The National Guard, as well as the Texas Department of Public Safety, and we have a new program in place because the Biden administration plan is to catch and release. The Texas plan is to catch and to jail. So, we are arresting and jailing.”
According to Abbott, after weeks of setting up the process, getting judges involved and opening up a former prison with over 1,000 beds, his program is now in full swing in Texas.
In fact, Texas is already catching and jailing illegal aliens.
“We are arresting people every single day, and we’re arresting for trespass,” he said. “When you come across the river, you’re typically coming into private property or county property or state property. You are trespassing.”
“And because I declared it an emergency, the punishment for the crime has been doubled, so . . . that can put them in jail for half a year or a year,” he added.
Even though Texas, the largest border state, has the most incentive to take action, many are expecting other border states to soon follow their lead if Joe Biden continues to neglect the crisis.
