The June 10 stash house raid began the very same day Texas Governor Greg Abbott revealed plans to begin the instant building of border barriers and “mass arrests” of migrants unlawfully going into Texas and violating state laws, Breitbart Texas reported.
“The increase throughout the border runs out control, and the Biden Administration has shown that is not going to step up and do its task,” Governor Abbott informed Breitbart Texas in an individually interview shortly before the public announcement at his Border Security Top in Del Rio, Texas, on Thursday. “And amidst reports of much more people can be found in throughout the border, we understand we have to step up and do more.”
The governor mentioned, “If you pertain to Texas, you’re subject to being jailed. You’re not going to have a path to stroll the nation. You’re going to have a path straight into a prison cell.”
