Texas Gov Signs Toughest Border Security Plan in America, Has Epic Way to Rub Obama’s Nose in It
The head of America’s second-largest and second-most populous state signed the most comprehensive border control legislation in the nation on Tuesday. And not only that, but he’s asking for federal reimbursement for it.
“We are doing this because border security has turned out to be a real challenge for the people of this state, not just on the border region but across communities across the entire state of Texas,” Gov. Abbott told Texas legislators during his State of the State address.
“And the Texas legislature responded profoundly, and strongly,” Abbott said.
During the signing ceremony, Abbott also signed SCR-5, a bill that would seek federal reimbursement for the border legislation.
“Texas is willing to shoulder the responsibility, we expect the federal government to foot the bill.” Abbott said.
Abbott mentioned during his speech that there were more than 20,000 gang members associated with cross-border traffic, adding that they were going “to dismember the gang operations that are causing havoc for the people of Texas.”
There were over 100,000 gang members in the state of Texas alone, according to some estimates.
