What To Know: Gov. Greg Abbott says the state of Texas has begun arresting illegal immigrants and charging them with trespassing—a tactic designed to make up for federal inaction at the border.

The TPPF Take: Gov. Abbott’s actions are entirely appropriate.

“Texans bear the brunt of President Biden’s negligence,” says TPPF’s Kevin Roberts. “Any deterrence on illegal immigration—a border wall, detention and return, criminal prosecution, the real threat of failure to cross—will save lives. And that’s what our focus must be: preserving life, liberty, and the Rule of Law.”
