Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick pulled no punches during his appearance on Fox News.
Patrick joined Laura Ingram and was initially asked to comment on the new law that was passed allowing police officers to arrest migrants who illegally crossed the border.
Laura Ingraham asked, “The White House said today this law won’t make communities safer your response?”
Patrick said, “So, we spent a lot of time writing this bill along with the governor and we believe we have a bill that will survive any type of Supreme Court challenge because we are being invaded. Arizona tried this about 10 years ago but our law is different. it simply says that our law enforcement can arrest anyone, take them in, do a background which can photograph, do fingerprints. If they saw them cross the border illegally, we can do that or if they happen to reveal in the arrest stop that they crossed illegally. Then the magistrate will send them back and will escort them to the border. They have a choice, they go to jail or they can go back. And if they go back and dry to come back again and rearrest them again, the penalty gets even higher. We are fed up.”
He added, “Seeing what happened in Colorado makes me think — except we believe in democracy in Texas — maybe we should take Joe Biden off the ballot in Texas for allowing eight million people to cross the border since he’s been president disrupting our state for more than anything anyone else has done in recent history. And so so this is so outrageous. 10,000, 12,000, 14,000 people a day crossing the border. 8 million since we have been in office. It’s enough to be the 12th largest state it’s incredible.”
A female friend chased down a hit-and-run driver, forcing him to stop (Texas).
Turns out he’s an illegal immigrant (Columbia) with no insurance; her car has $1000s of damage.
She sent info to police, but no reply.
Feels like state govt should get more involved in this issue??
