In the battle for our border, Joe Biden is warring against Americans.
Texas Gov. Abbott revealed recently that his office has called on Biden again and again.
But the White House has ignored calls for help, as the border explodes.
We reported on how the State of Texas is taking matters into its own hands. They erected their own fencing system. And they promised border jumpers they will be jailed for a year.
Now, the governor is enlisting the help of the National Guard.
From The Hill:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Tuesday ordered the National Guard to help local law enforcement with arresting migrants as the state continues to see an influx of people crossing the southern border…
“I hereby order that the Texas National Guard assist DPS in enforcing Texas law by arresting lawbreakers at the border.”
In addition to DPS officers, Gov. Abbott is ordering Texas National guardsmen to assist in arresting border jumpers.
Abbott had previously vowed to arrest criminals crossing the border. They could face up to a year in jail for trespassing.
Texas Department of Public Safety would be heading this initiative. Now, Abbott is calling on the guardsmen to assist.
According to law, National guardsmen are allowed to conduct law enforcement, when deployed by the state.
It is entirely within their power to arrest lawbreakers. Because they are guarding the border, they will have their hands full arrest people trying to sneak in.
Thanks to Biden, border jumpers actually want to get caught. When they do, they immediately claim asylum, hoping the federal government will release them.
That has been the norm, until now. If Texas law enforcement, or National guardsmen, catch these criminals, they are going to jail.
The goal of this policy is not to fill Texas jails with migrants. It’s to send a message to would-be jumpers to not even try it.
If it becomes common knowledge that border jumpers coming into Texas end up in jail—fewer will want to come.
Maybe that will slow down Biden’s border crisis.
