Texas: Illegal Border Crossing to Become a State Crime, Empowering State Officers to Arrest Illegal Immigrants

Youtube screenshot

Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is poised to sign a groundbreaking law, making illegal border crossing a state criminal offense. This move will grant state peace officers the authority to arrest illegal immigrants. This legislation extends the authority to every peace officer in Texas to arrest individuals who violate this law. Abbott said that due to the construction of walls and razor wire barriers, Texas is no longer the primary entry point for illegal immigrants. Instead, these individuals are now more frequently using routes through the Tucson and San Diego sectors in other states.

Under SB 4, charges could escalate to a felony for migrants accused of additional crimes or non-compliance with a judge’s deportation order. The bill also allows immigrants to present legal status evidence during prosecution. Penalties range from a year in jail for a misdemeanor to two to 20 years for a felony.

Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is poised to sign a groundbreaking law, making illegal border crossing a state criminal offense. This move will grant state peace officers the authority to arrest illegal immigrants.

Governor Abbott revealed these plans during an interview with Maria Bartiromo.

Governor Abbott emphasized the severity of the immigration issue, attributing the high number of illegal crossings to failed policies and open border under Joe Biden’s regime.

“The problem is extraordinarily bad. The numbers are high. And it’s because Joe Biden continues to lay out the welcoming mat for illegal immigrants into the United States of America,” said Abbott.

However, Abbott highlighted that due to the construction of walls and razor wire barriers, Texas is no longer the primary entry point for illegal immigrants. Instead, these individuals are now more frequently using routes through the Tucson and San Diego sectors in other states.

Texas will have to defend itself because it’s a certainty the Federal Government won’t.
Come to think of it, so will every other state.

I am HIGHLY confused!!! So, do you mean to tell me, that in ONE HUNDRED and SEVENTY EIGHT YEARS (178), since Texas became a state, in 1845…..that, ONLY NOW, someone has come up with the ‘idea’ of making ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSING a STATE CRIME??????
Are you SERIOUS?!?!?!?! WHY hasn’t this ALREADY BEEN ON THE BOOKS………DECADES AGO???????
What do these CRIMINALS, at the State Capital, DO ALL DAY……day in…..day out…..year after year after year after year?!

The New California 51st state movement is addressing the treasonous open borders problem. Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution guarantees that each state govt must protect the citizenry against INVASION. When a state govt fails to protect against invasion, it is in Constitutional DEFAULT for not doing one of its three Constitutional duties, the other two being providing a republican form of govt and protecting the citizenry from domestic violence. We don’t need a civil war to fix this; we just need to form new states according to the Constitution.

Just to clarify for those who might not be aware, the term “a Republican form of government” means our Constitutional Republic, not any form based on the Republican party. But I add that the Democrat party was originally set up based on a Democracy being their idea of what our form of government is. The Republican party was originally set up based on a Republic being their idea of what our form of government is. Both parties have strayed some on this, but still the right remains closer to a Republic than the left remains to a Democracy.
