Texas Governor Greg Abbott vowed this week to direct law enforcement to arrest every migrant that crosses the state’s southern border with Mexico.
“We’re about to change the way Texas addresses the challenges on the border and we’re going to start by helping these 34 counties respond by increasing arrests,” Abbott told Sean Hannity on Fox News on Wednesday.
“The law that I’m going to use will be legal ways in which Texas is going to start arresting everybody coming across the border,” he added. “Not just arresting them, but because this is not going to be aggravated trespass, they’re going to be spending a half a year in jail, if not a year in jail, as well as other action that I will be announcing next week.”
