Governor Greg Abbott (Texas) has come up with a great plan to counter the current catch-and-release policy of this administration.
With the Texas border being overrun, he is done allowing illegal immigrants to run rampant not only in Texas, but across the nation.
Reports have been breaking for weeks that Biden has been transporting illegals all over the interior, so Governor Abbott figured out a way to stop it.
Abbott stated, “[W]hat Texas is doing — we’re not playing games anymore.
“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. The program has already begun.
“It took a few weeks to set up because we actually had to set up an entire new booking system.
“We had to get judges involved in the process, magistrates. … We had to open up a former prison that has now 1,000 jail beds that we’re starting to fill up.
“We are arresting people every single day, and we’re arresting fortress pass. 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.”
This has become a hot potato with Abbott now being challenged by several high-profile candidates in the Republican primary, so expect him to drop the hammer like we have never seen before.
