Texas Lt Governor: We Shut Down the Border Ourselves

by Brandon Darby 7 Dec 2013

Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst announced a Texas-led three-week effort that he says reduced illegal immigration, smuggling, and human trafficking to a standstill in the Rio Grande River section of the U.S./Mexico border.

The Lt. Governor spoke with me in an interview for Breitbart News; he stated: “In the Rio Grande Valley sector, nearly nothing moved in those three weeks. We shut it down. We had teams of Texas law enforcement in the brush, high altitude aircraft, gun boats, and more," he explained. “Our intel revealed that the Gulf cartel was growing frustrated with our three-week effort.”

“The border issue is just about dollars and cents,” Dewhurst said. “This proves Texas can do the job the federal government has refused to do — to invest in the border and shut it down from illegal activities that are hurting Texans and other Americans.” He added: "Texas will protect our own citizens and other Americans from the criminal gangs that are destabilizing our state and our nation.”

The plan, according to Dewhurst, was to do a three-week operation with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) as the tip of the spear. He said the effort cost approximately $5 million each month. “We are fixing to appropriate more money,” he said. The Lt. Governor is seeking an additional $60 million to be approved by the State Legislative Budget Board.

Dewhurst stated, “We started appropriating money to plug the holes that exist in the border. We’ve allocated hundreds of millions, as a state, since 2008.” He added: “Nearly 796 million of state money, not a dime federal, has been allocated by the State of Texas to plug the holes in our border. This covers things like over-time for Sheriffs’ deputies, equipment, and Texas Rangers SWAT teams [referring to the elite Texas Rangers, an arm of the DPS].”

Lt. Governor Dewhurst said the state has purchased a high-altitude spotter plane that can see six miles into Mexico at night, six new DPS helicopters that can also see at night, and six armored gunboats to patrol the Rio Grande River.

“For six or seven years, I’ve been calling on our congressional delegation in D.C., we need to at least double, if not triple, the size of our Border Patrol,” said the Lt. Governor. “The federal government is not providing the resources. I’ve grown convinced over the last year that this administration has no intention of securing the border.”

“This is just unacceptable,” he said. “ We have a problem and everyone knows it except for the Obama administration and people in high levels of Border Patrol.” The Lt. Governor did not stop there: “Organized crime groups in Texas are contracting with Mexican cartels to be their enforcers. The cartels' presence are in all of our major cities. Seven of the eight Mexican cartels operating in Texas are using our state as a staging area for their operations across the U.S.”

“Illegal immigration is one issue, and we all understand why people want to come here. I’m a strong believer in legal immigration, but not illegal immigration,” said the Lt. Governor. “We have young girls being trafficked as slaves for immoral purposes across our border and through our state. This cannot be allowed.”

“The bottom line is that we have just showed that we can shut down the border for ‘X’ number of dollars,” he said. “We need to find the $5 million per month to make these operations continuous and replicate what we have just accomplished.”

Dewhurst concluded the interview by stating, “The State of Texas and our nation deserve better than what we are getting from Washington, D.C. Until they adopt the Texas approach, we will continue to do what’s right for Texans and for our state ourselves.”

I'll bet that the administration will order Texas stop this activity. I'm not kidding either.

Good for Texas. At least they have the balls to do what should have been done. Too bad they can't start rounding up the illegals they have and bus em to South Mexico.


Take 5 million a month away from the federal border patrol and give it to Texas. Funding fixed.

@ Dewhurst.

I'm sure the fact that there's been more migration back to Mexico than into the US had nothing to do with that.

Yeah, I'm sure that people who are here looking for jobs are responsible for all of the crime. Wow, what a racist asshole comment. That's surprising.

Net immigration into the US from Mexico has been a negative for a couple of years. Dewhurst is posturing for the next gubernatorial race and trying to claim credit for things that would have been no different whether he had spent the extra $5M a month or not.

Really?

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013...on-on-the-rise

Pew said that among the six states with the largest numbers of immigrants here illegally, only Texas had a consistent increase in illegal immigration from 2007 to 2011, due in part to its stronger economy. Its number was unchanged from 2011 to 2012. Two states — Florida and New Jersey — had an initial drop but then increases during the same 2007-2011 period. Three states — California, Illinois and New York — showed only declines.

This is a step in the right direction BUT it will ALWAYS cost far more than it needs to so long as we are constantly having to separate the wheat from the chaff. You have people pouring over the border looking for work and a new life and you have people coming for the sole purpose of smuggling drugs or women.. these two groups SHOULD be treated differently with different rules of engagement. Simple solution is to make LEGAL immigration an easier process (anyone who says it's fine right now is out of their god damn mind). If legal immigration is easy and open then you can safely assume that those coming into the US illegally have nefarious motives and you can take a "shoot on sight" stance. The cost/benefit on this is pretty clear to anyone who doesn't have an irrational fear of brown people "stealing jobs."

I had no idea that the Rio Grande was deep enough to float a gunboat.

And I agree with Donger. The feds will probably try to shut this down.

I agree with Donger as well but not much Feds can actually do about it.

As for the gunboats... river gunboats are pretty shallow draft and the Rio Grande is plenty deep in most areas.

If we just make it illegal and ignore demand we can solve the problem! #2 it's bass ackwards technologically speaking. #3 because of #1 & #2 it takes FOREVER for most people to get accepted. A wait time that is longer than the minimum needed for security purposes is unacceptable. No excuse for it taking 6 months much less the 7 or 8 YEARS many wait.

From the article:

...he explained. “Our intel revealed that the Gulf cartel was growing frustrated with our three-week effort.”


That's not the same as net immigration. I didn't do any fact checking to see if there was a decline in slavery, sex slavery or smuggling. I don't know if you can do any meaningful fact checking in regards to the reaction of the cartels. But the article isn't really about people coming here looking for jobs. It's about the people who are engaged in some actual evil activity.
