This is why we LOVE Texas…
Dean James AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS -
Again, I will say HELL YEAH TEXAS! Why? Texas takes care of business time and time again! This is huge.
As we all know, Obama has created an immigration crisis unlike any other. He has intentionally weakened our southern border to bring in Democratic voters as well as for other destructive reasons. It’s all a part of the big plan to bring down America. That is what he wants and he is doing one hell of a job!
Obama’s illegal amnesty has caused complete chaos for Texas and Governor Abbott has had enough!
Texas Governor Greg Abbott held a ceremony to sign the toughest and most comprehensive border security plan of any state in the United States of America. The legislative package provides historic levels of funding to secure the border, establishes a Child Sex Trafficking Prevention Unit, strengthens penalties for human traffickers, increases funding for the border protection unit, and seeks reimbursement from the federal government for Texas funds spent on border issues.
The Governor declared the plan a legislative priority, and one of his emergency legislative items during his State of the State address.
“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,” the Texas governor said.
Because of the magnitude of the challenge, Abbott declared securing the border an emergency issue. He added, “And the Texas legislature responded profoundly, and strongly.”
I love this! LMAO Obama has GOT to me mad as hell!
The Governor ended the ceremony by saying, “Now together these laws establish a comprehensive border security plan that will keep our state and our communities a safer place.”
Abbott signed the bills into law and declared, “Texas is now a safer place.”

Governor Greg Abbott today hosted a signing ceremony at the Department of Public Safety’s (DPS) Regional Headquarters in Houston, TX, where he promoted his border security initiative – one of the Governor’s emergency legislative items. At the event, Governor Abbott ceremonially signed HB 11 (D. Bonnen, R-Angleton; Birdwell, R-Granbury), which, coupled with the state budget’s historic $800 million investment in border security, will accelerate DPS’s hiring of 250 additional troopers for the border region, provide additional training and equipment along the border and give prosecutors additional tools necessary to crack down on criminal cartel enterprises involved in human and drug smuggling.
“We cannot be naïve to the threat posed by drug cartels and transnational gangs. And Texas will not sit idly by while the federal government fails to do its job and secure the border,” said Governor Abbott. “I’m proud to sign legislation to implement measures that will help provide for the safety and security of communities across Texas.”
In addition to signing HB 11, Governor Abbott also signed bills that will establish a Child Sex Trafficking Prevention Unit, increase penalties for human traffickers and provide more resources to the border prosecution unit:
- HB 10 (Thompson, D-Houston: Huffman, R-Houston): Relating to certain criminal and civil consequences of trafficking of persons, compelling prostitution, and certain other related criminal offenses; to the prevention, prosecution, and punishment of those offenses, and to compensation paid to victims of those offenses.
- HB 12 (Longoria, D-Mission; Hinojosa, D-McAllen): Relating to the border prosecution unit.
- SCR 5 (Estes, R-Wichita Falls; R-Canton): Relating to the federal government’s responsibility to secure the border
This is great news! The Texas border has been unsecured for way too long.
Texas – with its lack of an income tax and a booming business economy – is a model for what conservative leadership can look like. Just think how much better the Lone Star state would be if there was a competent leader in the White House too?
