Governor Greg Abbott is ready to enact a groundbreaking law that will make illegal border crossing a state-level criminal act in Texas. This legislation will empower state peace officers to arrest immigrants who cross the border illegally.

During an interview with Maria Bartiromo, Governor Abbott disclosed these forthcoming measures. He underscored the severity of the border crisis, linking the surge in illegal crossings to the failed policies and an open-border approach under Joe Biden.

Abbott expressed grave concern, stating, “The problem is extraordinarily bad. The numbers are high. And it’s because Joe Biden continues to lay out the welcoming mat for illegal immigrants into the United States of America.”

Abbott pointed out that Texas has ceased being the primary entry point for illegal immigrants, thanks to the construction of walls and razor wire barriers. Instead, these individuals are increasingly using paths through the Tucson and San Diego sectors in other states.

He said that Texas, with these measures, is forcing the cartels to adjust their paths for unlawful entry into the U.S.

Even with these shifts, Governor Abbott stressed the necessity for Texas to pursue additional steps.

“Texas is having to step up and do even more to make sure that we deny illegal entry into the state of Texas,” Abbott said.

Under the new law, which Governor Abbott plans to sign in two weeks, it will become a state-level criminal offense to enter Texas illegally from another country. This legislation extends the authority to every peace officer in Texas to arrest individuals who violate this law.

“I’ll be signing a new law in the state of Texas that will make it illegal for people to enter the state of Texas from another country illegally and authorizing every peace officer in the state of Texas to arrest those people entering our country illegally,” said Abbott.
