Texas Governor Greg Abbott has just requested that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton begin investigating NGO groups for orchestrating unlawful border crossings and assisting with illegal border crossings near El Paso.
Abbott made this request this morning:
Here’s the main excerpt from the letter Abbott sent to Paxton:
“There have been recent reports that non-governmental organizations may have assisted with illegal border crossings near El Paso,” reads the letter. “We further understand NGOs may be engaged in unlawfully orchestrating other border crossings through activities on both sides of the border, including in sectors other than El Paso. In light of these reports, I am calling on the Texas Attorney General’s Office to initiate an investigation into the role of NGOs in planning and facilitating the illegal transportation of illegal immigrants across our borders. In addition, I stand ready to work with you to craft any sensible legislative solutions your office may propose that are aimed at solving the ongoing border crisis and the role that NGOs may play in encouraging it.”
Abbot is not only calling for an investigation, but wants new legislation that holds NGOs accountable for their part in all of this illegal activity.
Abbott can only do so much down there without the federal government’s help, but this is an area I think he can seriously make a dent in. These caravans don’t just spawn without help from these NGO organizations.
