Texas Governor Signs Law Allowing State To Arrest And Jail Illegal Border Crossers

This sets up an interesting showdown with Los Federales

Texas to arrest illegal migrants in challenge to federal govt

Texas has enacted a law that will make border crossings illegal and punishable with jail time, one of the toughest immigration laws passed by any US state in modern times.

Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, said it would “stop the tidal wave of illegal entry into Texas”.

Immigration advocates have said the law will lead to racial profiling.

It comes amid rising illegal migration and public concern over US President Joe Biden’s handling of the border.

The new Texas measure is so controversial, in part, because US courts have previously ruled that only the federal government can enforce immigration laws.

Crossing the border illegally is already a federal crime, but violations are currently handled as civil cases by the immigration court system.

It’s an interesting dynamic: the federal government is tasked with securing the border from foreign invasion, however, it is not really performing that job. So, do border states which are the recipients of failed federal government policies and seeing thousands of illegals invade, damage property, hurt citizens, and have to spend lots of money have the right to enact measures to stop the flow?

Punishments range from misdemeanours to felonies that can lead to jail time or fines of up to $2,000 (£1,580).

A judge can also order that those arrested be sent back across the border into Mexico, although it is unclear how Texas authorities plan to enforce that provision.

Penalties for illegal re-entry could go up to 20 years in jail, depending on a migrant’s immigration and criminal history.

Just stick them back across the border. The Biden regime is sure to sue over this law, as well as the other Abbott signed, which creates mandatory jail terms for human smugglers, but, how will they argue Texas has no standing to secure their border when the Biden regime is failing to do the job?

    Behind Biden’s 2020 Victory
    An examination of the 2020 electorate, based on validated voters

    VALIDATED VOTERS…..even PEW gets it.

    Remember Trump lost by 40k votes in 3 swing states. PA, AZ and GA will give the presidency to Trump this time around. Not millions like the left has you believing.

    Additionally, Biden held a 3-10 point lead in the polling in 2020 over Trump and won by 40k votes. Now Biden is trailing Trump by 2 points.

    Trump has 20 percent support among blacks compared to 8 percent in 2020.

    Hispanics gave Trump 31 percent among VALIDATED VOTERS….today the polling is showing 45 percent approval among Hispanics for Trump.

    Yet never under estimate the left’s willingness to cheat to win. The right does it as well. They just arent very good at it unlike the Dems which have turned it into an art form.

      Close US presidential elections are reduce to a handful of so-called battleground states. In 2016 trump won WI by 23,000 (0.8% of vote); MI by 11,000 (0.2% of vote); PA by 45,000 (0.8% of vote)… and a total of 46 EV. So, 0.1% of the total vote made trump president in 2016!

      The GOP are plenty good at cheating! Clearly Trump, Putin and their MAGAts cheated to steal that election!!!

      Of course, just like the MAGAts of 2020, the Dems have no credible evidence that the MAGA Men cheated in 2016, but so what!!

    Teach remains terrified of the damage to our society that might occur due to allowing in these people who would amount to 00.6% of the population of the USA.
    He IS excitable! No doubt there

    No doubt Johnny remains terrified of guns, which caused 49000 deaths last year (over half were suicides). That’s only 0.01% of the population, so according to your “logic” you guys shouldn’t worry about that, either. It’s always good to hear from Johnny…

    these people who would amount to 00.6% of the population of the USA.

    Hey moron, would you be comfortable with having zero 0.6% of your body cells cancerous?

    That’s not even to mention then if we have laws we should obey and support the laws. And if we’re going to be a nation we have to have borders and we have to have regulations.
