Breitbart News -- Bob Price
U.S. Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza testified before the Texas Senate Subcommittee on Border Security in support of creating a multi-state border security compact. Garza told the Senators that Texas must take an aggressive stance against the organizaed criminal enterprises that are smuggling thousands of illegal immigrants into the United States. The bill, SB 1252 by Senator Bob Hall (R-Edgewood), would require the Governor of Texas to negotiate an Interstate Border Security Compact to allow states to enforce federal immigration law.
Garza was in Austin representing the members of the National Border Patrol Council, Local 2455, where he serves as president. “I am here to day to provide you a glimpse of what is really happening on the Texas/Mexico border,” Garza told the committee attended by Breitbart Texas. “I will speak to you today about the federal government’s failure to secure our border by not enforcing our immigration laws.
Agent Garza told the committee that the federal government has some of the “most restrictive prosecutorial guidelines for smuggling cases.” He said that because of this, many cases of human smuggling are not prosecuted.
