Abbott: More checkpoints after trailer tragedy

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Texas governor Greg Abbott is taking steps to respond to the deaths of dozens of migrants inside a sweltering tractor trailer Abbott is setting up more checkpoints on highways Targeting trucks like the one that was used where these people perished to make sure that we will have a better capability of perhaps stopping future trucks like that The Republican governor says many of these deaths could have been prevented If President Biden fully funded the border patrol operation he pointed out the truck passed through a border checkpoint It was unexpected because the border patrol does not have the resources to be able to inspect all of the trucks And as a result the border patrol did not have the capability of saving those lives The truck was registered in Texas but had fake plates and logos
