Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that the state’s counties will soon arrest illegal migrants for aggravated trespass on Wednesday’s Sean Hannity show. This new policy will begin next week.

The Texas governor issued emergency declarations for 34 counties along the southern border over the immigration crisis. According to him, the counties asked for the declarations. “I don’t think this has ever happened before,” Abbott said, “where a disaster declaration was made for border counties because of the influx of people coming across the border.”

Now, illegal migrants could land “half a year in jail if not a year in jail” for crossing the Texas border, Abbott said. This comes after reports that the Biden administration is prohibiting deportations. Meanwhile, attempted border crossings are on the rise.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
