Today, the Texas Senate filed Senate Bill 2424, which would make entering Texas illegally a state crime, allowing the state to better protect its southern border. TPPF Campaign Director Carine Martinez released the following the statement:

“Texas continues to step in while the federal government has relinquished its responsibility to provide a secure border for Texans and Americans. Texas border communities are faced with the destruction of property, an increase in crime and violent activities, and the lethal danger of fentanyl. The Foundation thanks Senator Birdwell for stepping in to keep Texas secure and sovereign.”
