Texas’ Operation Lone Star Boasts Huge Success, Records Over 3,400 Arrests Since Inception

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas is greeted by U.S. Border Patrol RGV Chief Brian S. Hastings as they prepare to lead a delegation of Congressional representatives on a tour of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Donna Processing Facility in Donna, Texas, May 7, 2021.

The Operation Lone Star program was launched to help curb the number of illegal crossings from the U.S.-Mexico border and so far it has recorded immense success. After being launched in March, Texas’ Operation Lone Star has recorded thousands of apprehensions and criminal arrests.

Fox News reports:

Its troopers, through July 22, have also been involved in 546 vehicle pursuits and have seized more than 4,800 pounds of cocaine and methamphetamines, 936 firearms and $7.8 million dollars in the areas of the Rio Grande Valley, Del Rio, Big Bend and El Paso, the department says.

“Since Operation Lone Star began in March, DPS has deployed around one-thousand Troopers to assist at the border,” it added in a statement. “DPS Troopers continue to enforce all state violations of law including, but not limited to, criminal trespassing, criminal mischief, smuggling and human trafficking.”

“Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans,” the governor added.

On Monday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told Fox News that his state has been “forced into” arresting migrants crossing the border illegally because the federal government has “no interest in doing the job.”

The Biden administration has continued to ignore the ongoing border crisis leaving states to face the consequences. Other states have sent National Guard troops to some border states overwhelmed by the crisis.

It’s time to close the border, someone needs to drag hidenbiden,dementia,joe,in front of the camera for him to tell the world this border just closed. He was mentally unfit, when he said the border was open, and didn’t know what he was saying, now it’s closed, and anyone crossing will be arrested,period.

Don’t stop now, Mental diaper changes keep coming, There is no Presidential blanket pardon for those who break the law, Blanket executive immunity does not exist, executive orders can not be legal if they break the law. If you were part of or assisted in moving illegals around the Country, virus ridden or not you have violated established laws, Biden’s disregard for the laws of our land will not provide you immunity from prosecution. The forgiving mood of States, Citizens, who have suffered will not be there, if citizens have lost loved ones, money or property abuse, you will be held accountable. Biden administration does not have the authority for blanket forgiveness, for violation of established laws they are considered crimes, you will be charged, best to get out now before the sxxx hits the fan. The law suits are moving forward soon they will completed, then individual assessments will begin.

The prison space is going to fill up very quick……due to the good job with the arrests. Texas might want to hire ….Americas Sheriff to set up one of those tent cities that he ran so well. I would bet he could set up one in no time at all and could expand it as needed.
