Abbott’s border security is working

Abbott’s border security is working

The illegal immigration crisis continues along most of the southern border, but here in Texas, encounters with illegal aliens have decreased. This just shows that the common sense border policies that Gov. Abbott has pushed are working.

Former U.S. Marshal and border security expert Robert Almonte told KTRH, “The deployment of the National Guard, Texas DPS troopers, has had an effect on the migrants.” Now more illegals are crossing the border in places like New Mexico and California.

Almonte says this is as simple as taking the path of least resistance. Even though some people will still try to enter Texas, most illegal aliens know that if they are caught by Texas Border Patrol personnel, they will face consequences.

He says Republicans across the country should follow Texas’ lead and implement the same policies that are now a proven success in Texas.
