(Patriot Insider) – One of the most damaging actions taken by Joe Biden after usurping the presidency is his open border policy. Though he denies that the southern border is wide open, it is, and hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants have been pouring in since January.
While this is certainly hurting the US as a whole, border states are being especially affected by the Biden regime’s lack of action concerning the border crisis.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is looking to take matters into his own hands as he fights to protect not only Texas but the US as a whole against this onslaught of illegal aliens.
Abbott says he’s had enough and he’s ready to start arresting illegal aliens since the Biden regime refuses to take any kind of action at all.
During an appearance on Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday, Abbott told Hannity about a new disaster declaration he has issued in 34 counties that allows the state to send more resources to the border and begin making arrests.
“We’re about to change the way Texas addresses the challenges on the border and we’re going to start by helping these 34 counties respond by increasing arrests,” Abbott said.
“Normally disaster declarations are for things like hurricanes,” Abbott explained, “I don’t think this has ever happened before where a disaster declaration was made for border counties because of the influx of people coming across the border.”
Abbott says the arrests could come with potential jail time as part of the penalty for the offense of aggravated trespassing.
The Governor says the law he plans to use “will be legal in which Texas is going to start arresting everybody coming across the border.”
He added that they won’t just be arresting them but sending them to jail using the charge of aggravated trespassing. He says “they are going to be spending half a year in jail, if not a year in jail,” and said there would be other actions against these illegal aliens that he will announce next week.
The Center for Immigration Studies has released some statistics showing that migrants have become emboldened to illegally cross the US southern border since President Trump was robbed of a second term.

After fraudulently securing the White House, the Biden regime has essentially posted a “welcome sign” for illegal aliens. The administration has even gone to great lengths to find as much taxpayer-funded housing to accommodate the massive influx of migrants.
Along with Abbott’s disaster declaration issued Tuesday, the Governor also announced that Texas will no longer issue state licenses to facilities that help house illegal immigrants.
“President Biden’s open-border policies have paved the way for dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers, and deadly drugs like fentanyl to pour into our communities,” Abbott said.
“Texas continues to step up to confront the border crisis in the federal government’s absence, but more must be done.”
More must be done indeed but don’t hold your breath. The Biden regime does not appear to be concerned about the illegals pouring into the US at all. They know it’s a steady stream of future Democrat voters and rigging US elections to maintain power and control is the only thing Democrats care about.
