The crisis at the border is no joke. All day every day people just come across the border as they please. Many are illegally here and the federal government under the Biden regime isn’t doing much about it.
“They had declined any type of medical help,” Coe said of the four uninjured migrants.
“So I can’t let them walk the streets. I can’t say, ‘Hey, go, be free.’ Because I still have to protect the Constitution and protect the people in the county.”
He added, “To let them go, undocumented, unaccounted for, just go because of a policy — I couldn’t do it.”
Coe drove four of the illegals to the middle of the international bridge at Eagle Pass, which is an official point of entry, and dropped them off. The fifth person was wearing cartel insignia and was arrested.
“I applaud all of our sheriffs for having to respond in unprecedented conditions. And that’s causing all of us to use unprecedented action,” Abbott said.
“And so whether it’s doing what that sheriff in Kinney County is doing, or what we’re doing, such as turning back more than 20,000 people, we all have our own tools and strategies that we use to either turn back or to return people across the border.”
Someone had to do it since Abbott has not been effective on this.
