The great state of Texas has taken further action to protect its sovereignty amid the Biden administration’s refusal to secure the southern border.

According to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), he signed three laws on Monday that will “better protect Texans AND Americans from Biden’s open border policies.”

He explained on X, “Illegal entry into Texas is now a crime subject to removal or imprisonment. Texas will also fund new wall construction & increase human smuggling penalties.”

Gov. Abbott’s legislative action is timely, given the fever pitch of illegal immigration at the Texas border. Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin recently shared jarring footage of massive crowds of illegal migrants waiting to be processed by the Border Patrol at Eagle Pass, Texas.

According to Just the News, Abbott’s law on illegal entry in the Lone Star State should take effect in March 2024 and would allow Texas law enforcement to arrest illegal migrants and judges subsequently to expel them from the country.

Per Axios, the legislation (SB 4) would make crossing the border illegally in Texas a misdemeanor, and illegal reentry would be a second-degree felony. The empowerment of judges to order an illegal entrant back to their home country is reminiscent of the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols, or the “Remain in Mexico” policy.

Under the Biden administration, the southern border has been pointedly overrun by millions of unvetted illegal migrants. President Donald Trump has often stated that he believes that by the end of Biden’s term in office, as many as 15 or 16 million illegals will have entered the United States.

At Eagle Pass, Bill Melugin also reported that authorities are suspending railway operations in the area to move CBP officers to assist Border Patrol with processing the illegal migrants at the border.
