FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
In January of 2022 U.S. Border Patrol were catching on average 4,700 illegal immigrants per day and in May it jumped to 7,500 apprehensions per day.
Texas must deport illegal aliens back across the border, instead of flying them deeper into the interior of the United States. This process is costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars per year. President Joe Biden’s transportation of border crossers and illegal aliens into the United States interior cost American taxpayers at least $340 million in the first nine months of 2021, federal data reviewed by Breitbart News reveals. Sending illegal aliens further into our country only exacerbates the problem.
In January of 2022 U.S. Border Patrol were catching on average 4,700 illegal aliens per day and in May it jumped to 7,500 apprehensions per day. This is not sustainable. The new figures bring the total number of migrant encounters this year to over 2.2 million, surpassing last year’s record-breaking 1.9 million. These numbers do not take into account illegal aliens that have avoided capture.
We applaud the Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, Matt Rinaldi for taking the lead on calling out Gov. Abbott to declare an invasion. The Republican Party of Texas has declared an invasion at the southern border. Its chair, Matt Rinaldi, is calling on Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, and on all Texas counties to do the same. Texas needs more bold leaders who are not afraid to act and call the dire situation at the border what it is: an invasion.
Gov. Greg Abbott must take action against this invasion by deporting illegal aliens back across the border, instead of bussing and flying them around the country. Arizona Republican gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake gets it: “I think we should bring the buses, drive them to the border, and send them the other way.”
With the Biden administration failing to fulfill its duty to the American people, it is evident that the state of Texas must pull itself up by its bootstraps and utilize its constitutionally vested ability to defend its citizens. Allowing illegal aliens to travel and settle further into the interior is proving to be detrimental to the security and safety of our country.
