As illegals are shipped throughout the state without any COVID testing or identification — with most receiving court dates that they will never attend — hospitals and law enforcement across the state are being pushed to their limit.
Texas gubernatorial candidate Lt. Col. (Ret.) Allen West had this to say:
“How long can the failures at the border continue? How long will it be before law-abiding Texans are told they cannot have elective procedures? How long before hospitals are overrun with COVID cases, and ICUs fill up because leadership in Texas has refused to shut down the illegal invasion at our southern border? Why are we foolishly firing critical medical professionals for refusing mandated ‘vaccines’ which the state isn’t mandating for illegal immigrants?
Every day thousands are crossing and being released into our communities — here in Texas and all over our nation — with no COVID testing. DHS just last week issued a warning for citizens not to travel to the Rio Grande Valley. Additionally, State of Texas Assistance Requests (STARs) — which requests additional personnel in emergencies, when needs are beyond their capacity — continues to be denied and ignored.
Border Patrol is stretched paper thin, the Texas National Guard is processing hundreds of illegals per hour, while DPS is transporting illegals. Our Texas National Guard is not fully mobilized, and Governor Abbott’s lack of leadership and direction is not allowing them to stem the tide, instead only issue trespassing citations. Local sheriffs beg for the funds to combat the endless tide of cartel operatives and illegals that put their constituents and countrymen at risk. We need leaders who will protect the sovereignty of Texas and her citizens before it is too late.”
When Governor, West will not allow Texas law enforcement to be handcuffed by federal and state bureaucratic failures. Migrants will be deported, and cartel affiliates will be fully prosecuted and classified as criminal terrorists.
Under a Governor West, Texas hospitals will not be left in the lurch as a sea of illegal immigrants spread a disease that threatens our society’s most vulnerable citizens.
