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.”

Do they want to pick olives at a depressed wage? No, of course not. The legals have to pay taxes.

You WILL NOT STOP illegal immigrants from coming here as long as the demand remains. Period. No amount of authoritarian bullshit will change that. How many BILLIONS have we wasted on the war on drugs? It's the same ridiculous way of addressing an issue.
Illegals aren't necessarily criminals. It's a civil matter unless they've been deported a few times.

For me, securing the border comes first, then deal with the other issues. Staunch the wound.

Again, backwards thinking. You want to attack the symptom then maybe kinda look at the disease.

Attack the disease and the symptoms become much more manageable.

You should check the numbers again. That article is from 2007. Since then Mexico has seen a wave of new factories and economic reforms. They just passed the law to allow private investment into their oil industry (it had been nationalized). They are implementing market reforms for other industries that are monoploized.

Mexico is a fast growing emerging economy.

btw.. Wal Mart says "YOU'RE WELCOME" .. For all the shit they receive they did a TON of work raising Mexican manufacturing standards.

Mexico is making great strides but corruption is still a major major issue that needs to be addressed.

VW has done their part but Wal Mart has had a FAR FAR FAR bigger impact across the board. They have actively engaged suppliers and distributors throughout the Mexican economy.

If you really want to attack the disease, you need to change your proposal to simply doing away with welfare type programs.

Then of course there is the disease on the other side of the border but, aside from just annexing the country there is little we can about that. But that is most certainly a major part of the disease, and something that we cannot really cure. So you will still be fighting symptoms to some extent no matter what you do.

He's full of shit the Feds have gone insane with border security. For 100 miles from the border its like a DMZ. Planes boats, dogs, hundreds of border guards everywhere. Hell it intimidated me.

Obammy says **** You Texas……and everyone else as well. Like he gives a shit.


President Obama will extend his mini-amnesty for young illegals, said Cecilia Muñoz, White House director of domestic policy.

“As long as this president is president… you’re going to be able to renew your deferred action,” Muñoz told one illegal immigrant 23 minutes into an online question-and-answer session on immigration conducted via Skype.

So far, Obama’s deputies have granted the two-year “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” amnesty to at least 567,563 illegals aged between 15 and 31, giving them the right to get jobs in every state, get drivers’ licenses in some states, to enroll in school and to receive government aid. Only 21,162 illegals have been rejected. Roughly 11 million illegals are living in the United States.

Obama’s two-year amnesty will start timing out in 2014, shortly before the midterm elections.

Munoz’s promise of another mini-amnesty may torpedo the White House’s closed-door to push the House leadership to pass a very ambitious business-backed immigration bill, similar to the bill passed by the Senate in June.
