A Texas State Senator revealed to radio host Laura Ingraham that we have an army of illegal alien gang members in Texas. His estimate was well over 100,000.
On Monday, State Senator Dan Patrick , also Republican candidate for Lt. Governor of Texas, told a shocked Laura Ingraham that in just the period of 2008 – 2012 there were over 143,000 illegal aliens arrested for committing crimes in Texas. These are not run-of-the-mill criminals.
…hardened criminals, gang members, and other criminals that we identified as being in Texas illegally.”
“We charged them with 447,000 crimes, a half-million crimes in four years, just in Texas, including over 5,000 rapes and 2,000 murders. We estimate we have 100,000 gang members here illegally.
As Top Right News has reported over the past several months, the media hysteria about the “child migrant humanitarian crisis” is just a smokescreen for what is really coming across our border as our agents are distracted by this border bum rush, and taken off assignment by DHS to change diapers and process aliens for amnesty.
Here is just a handful of TRN articles that have chronicled the border chaos under Barack Obama:
- Armed incursions by Mexican military and police units working for the cartels
- Mexican helicopters shooting at U.S. agents and scouting for cartels across the border
- Mexican gunmen opening fire on U.S. agents from across the border
- Islamic terrorists crossing the border and remaining at large in the U.S.
Gov, Rick Perry revealed yesterday that only 20% of those crossing the border now are “children”. Most are adults and many are criminals.
And as Sen. Patrick confirmed, very few of them have been caught:
We are apprehending between six and ten thousand a week, now we think that we catch one out of every five? That means 25 to 30 thousand are crossing the border, Laura, that we don’t catch.
This number stunned Laura Ingraham, as it should all Americans.
Here is a portion of Patrick’s interview with Laura:
Brandon Walker has translated this new border reality into some pretty stark numbers:
If between six to ten thousand are being caught and that average rate of 20% continues, we will have caught 312,000 to 520,000 illegal immigrants coming to the country every year. That also means that 1,300,000 to 1,560,000 will come into the United States as illegal immigrants this year alone!
And as Texas’ Lt. Gov. Has revealed, 1 in 4 of those illegals will have criminal records.
Just 8 years after the U.S. Congress overwhelmingly passed and Bush signed the Secure Fence Act, and 5 years after Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama defunded it, this is the lawless state of our open border. Now that the criminal catastrophe Obama has unleashed is clear for all to see, will the American people finally stand up and demand that the border be sealed?
