Texas Is Jailing Illegal Aliens While Biden Plays Catch And Release

How soon till Sleepy Joe’s DOJ attempts to sue Texas?

Gov. Abbott: Biden Admin’s Plan Is Catch and Release — Texas Plan Is Catch and Jail

Americans before illegalsTexas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Sunday revealed that Texas was arresting and jailing illegal immigrants to combat the border crisis amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Abbott, highlighting that President Joe Biden and his administration’s catch and release plan in place is “opening the floodgates for people who are coming from countries where there is an extremely low vaccination rate,” told Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that Texas is catching and jailing illegal aliens.

“[W]hat Texas is doing — we’re not playing games anymore,” Abbott advised. “I deployed The National Guard, as well as the Texas Department of Public Safety, and we have a new program in place because the Biden administration plan is to catch and release. The Texas plan is to catch and to jail. So, we are arresting and jailing. The program has already begun. It took a few weeks to set up because we actually had to set up an entire new booking system. We had to get judges involved in the process, magistrates. … We had to open up a former prison that has now 1,000 jail beds that we’re starting to fill up. We are arresting people every single day, and we’re arresting for tresspass. When you come across the river, you’re typically coming into private property or county property or state property. You are trespassing.”

“And because I declared it an emergency, the punishment for the crime has been doubled, so … that can put them in jail for half a year or a year,” he added.

It’s a brilliant idea. However, what happens after they’re left out of jail? All Texas needs to do is bus them to the border and tell them to walk across. Because Texas can rightly claim they are simply enforcing federal law, and they would be correct. Another question would be the notion of a court providing “due process” for the illegals, which should be pretty easy: they’re unlawfully present, and often witnessed crossing the border illegally. Must it be a federal court? Or do states have the power under the federalist system to adjudicate? Or, maybe Texas will just send them to liberal states and cities, over-burden their systems. I guess we’ll find out when Biden’s DOJ gets involved.

    Our immigration laws are all federal laws, so any charges have to be filed in federal court, where the Attorney General could order the United States Attorney for the district to simply not prosecute.

    The city of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, passed ordinances against property owners who ‘harbored’ illegal immigrants, and lost in the Supreme Court, which said that immigration is solely a federal responsibility. Funny how the left ignored that with the idiotic ‘sanctuary cities’ move when we had a President who actually believed in stopping illegal immigration and getting rid of the illegals already here.

    • Professor Hale says:

      The trespass ordinances will likely fail court challenge too on the basis that a trespass is a misdemeanor and arresting and deporting are separate issues. Holding some trespassers in custody while releasing others on the basis of immigration status looks like a civil rights violation.

      (note: same logic applies to the January 6th picnickers).

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Serving 6 months to a year in jail should act as a deterrent besides they get fingerprinted and have their pictures taken.

        It’s a novel approach ordered by Abbott to allow state and local law enforcement officers to arrest immigrants for state crimes, since they have no jurisdictional power to arrest someone accused of the federal crime of crossing the border illegally.

    Last week I was forwarded an email by our COO that stated we cannot ask the “immigrants” (were called “refugees” until now) their country of origin, religion, how long they’ve been in the US, their age and if they have been vaccinated for Covid.

    This from an agency of a department of the US government that is allowing diseased illegals in and dispersing them around the US.

    But if we don’t comply………..

      Except for COVID, you can’t ask those questions of anyone – immigrant or not.

    • Dana says:

      But if they are employees or employment applicants you can ask for their documents certifying their ability to work legally in the United States.
