Abbott: ‘We are arresting and jailing anybody who comes into the border illegally’

1 00:00:00,060 –> 00:00:05,580 >> And when you have an administration. That is not enforcing the law in this country. When 2 00:00:05,580 –> 00:00:10,950 you have an administration that has abandoned any pretense of securing the border and securing our 3 00:00:10,950 –> 00:00:15,450 sovereignty you see the onrush of people like what we saw. 4 00:00:16,020 –> 00:00:21,330 >> Walking across this dam that is right behind me. Well because the 5 00:00:21,330 –> 00:00:26,790 bottom menstruation is doing nothing to secure our border because the bottom Menstruation 6 00:00:26,790 –> 00:00:32,670 has been promoting and allowing open border policies. It has been the state of Texas that 7 00:00:32,670 –> 00:00:38,130 had to step up and address this challenge and work with the local mayor the local county judge 8 00:00:38,130 –> 00:00:39,440 and the local sheriff. 9 00:00:39,450 –> 00:00:45,000 >> We are arresting and jailing anybody who comes across the border illegally 10 00:00:45,000 –> 00:00:50,130 and trespassing on private property or on public land. And so it’s 11 00:00:50,130 –> 00:00:55,500 not that bad administration catch and release policy. It’s the arrest and jail policy. Sending a message to 12 00:00:55,500 –> 00:01:01,020 these folks and anybody thinking about coming here they’re thinking about coming and crossing this 13 00:01:01,020 –> 00:01:06,120 river here in Texas you may have you may wind up with handcuffs on 14 00:01:06,120 –> 00:01:08,760 your hands going straight to jail. 15 00:01:08,790 –> 00:01:10,380 >> These Border Patrol officers are. 16 00:01:11,280 –> 00:01:17,430 >> Overwhelmed with the amount of work that they are required to do. And they’re suffering 17 00:01:17,430 –> 00:01:22,560 the consequences of an administration that is not providing them either either the personnel or the 18 00:01:22,560 –> 00:01:23,540 resources they need.
