"All right so attorney general talk about the new second amendment bill. That was just passed. That has everyone freaking out of what's happening in texas. Well it's a long time coming. I've been in favor of this forever. You don't have to have a permit to for free speech. You don't have a permit to go exercise your faith. I don't think you should have to have a permit to carry under the second amendment so in texas we now have that we have constitutional carey which allows people to carry concealed or out in the open without going through the government to get permission. Well that's terrific and so are there any. Are there any possible legal challenges to this. I'm sure some groups are going to try. Robert francis o'rourke who calls himself beta was making all sorts of videos about this and saying it's the worst thing ever. But i don't think that's gonna hold up in court. No i mean i have. No doubt will get sued. We'll end up defending that law and will you know that's one of those cases that could could all the way the supreme court who knows either way i think we're on si- obviously solid legal footing with the constitution. It's kind of the basic of our of our of our country. So i feel i'm encouraged. It took a long time to get this through era. I was enlisted for twelve years. We were never able to get it through and finally this session happens. I'm really grateful. So let's talk more. Broadly now just about texas is texas at risk of going. Blue harris county seems to be a blue county now vallis counties whatever it is. What are you seeing on the ground. And how can people help. Were absolutely a risk of going blew. It would have happened this time. Had we not fought these lawsuits. I it's all about whether we can protect the integrity of our elections and that is a constant battle. And that's why this election bill was was passed. And we've got to be vigilant. I think there's another bill. They're considering on on on looking at. Its potential type. Audits like you guys are doing here. I think we've got to do that to make sure that our elections are fair and that people can trust them because once you lose if we lose control in texas. I'm not sure that we'd ever get it back because if they open up mail in ballot let elections. We're gonna end up a lot more fraud and we may never be able to take it back and so it's pretty important that we secure elections now. Because you know you go to california. There's a lot of valen ballots. And i don't know if we'll ever know if there's a fair election california oregon or washington right. If you're conservative you can move to texas and be part of keeping it read and so also i want to ask you about the fifty two democrat. How many democrats left was it. Fifty two of them. That's about that's about the number. Are they going to be able to be arrested. And if not. i don't understand how that's possible. So yeah we took that We were in court over that we were. We had a local judge in travis county. Tell us that the the that those democrats couldn't be arrested so we took it to the expert court and got that undone webs. Actually what's called an expert here. We weren't even we weren't even at the hearing to defend what we thought was state law and so we got that overturned so those democrats are actually back. And that's why we're able to have the core to go past the The election integrity. Bill and the other bills and i will say this. I give governor abbott a lot of credit. He kept calling back and it made it difficult for the republican. Legislators and even the democrat. Legislators there were actually there all summer not not being able to go work because they only get paid six dollars a month plus their per diem but they. There weren't able to go back to their jobs. They weren't able to be with their families. They weren't able to take vacations. It was very challenging for those who had to go beyond the regular session which is five months and we have a citizen and these people. They work basically for free so it was very challenging. I think very unfair for the democrats that left put everybody else in that bad situation especially the that left and then went on vacation to europe. And the bahamas or wherever they were while they're back now and we'll see what helped i hope they're back only because there's you know there's some more movement needs to happen but it looks like texas done it. It looks like texas has signed these voter integrity bills into law. And this has been one of the more productive sessions i've ever seen from texas legislature. You know i'd have to agree. I was in legislature for twelve years years. The house two years in the senate. And i thought the best one i've ever seen was two thousand three and this one walnut perfect accomplished a lot of really great things better than a lot of sessions. I've i've seen over the last decade. Yeah i was in bastrop texas. You know where that as i do and people were complaining Back in the spring that there wasn't enough movement they said we've done nothing an election We've done nothing on abortion. We've done nothing on guns and it's like well you know kinda put points on the board for all. Three of mine wasn't perfect. But i think the reason though can is because the grassroots were really engaged. And that's the lesson. That is the lesson i think people speaking out and complaining when things are done. It creates action. I totally agree ken. Paxton dot com you and wonderful job. God bless texas. It's about time that we get more states. That are doing this. If you're in a red state is not texas. They need to introduce that pro-life bill now carbon copy of it exact same language copy paste it because the supreme court will uphold it email us.

Google Is Its Own Government, Cuts Texas Attorney General's Budget
"Attorney general paxton. How many people do you have working for you. And the attorney general's office in texas so it's a total of about forty two hundred four thousand two hundred and you're saying that google has a lot of resources understand. How big these companies are. You have the understand the point. I'm making i mean you're the third largest state right or the second we're second we're actually selling. The census data second largest state in the country attorney. General's office is saying. Hey look we're going to try our best but like we're no google. Yes to show the size right amazing the money that they have a we have budgets and my entire budget for a two year period one point three billion which sounds like a lot of money six hundred and something million but a year which is a lot of money and we do a lot of great things with that money however if you think about google making you know hundred and thirty five billion a year and profits they could hire every attorney in texas they wanted to and every lobbyist in texas and i. We have to go up against that. There's no limit to what they can do. The experts they can i r- and and and what they can do to try to. You know go into a legislative session. Like i just went through where they try to lobby tab. My budget cut by twenty five percent. So really it's a force. They are a force. That's just one company that makes sense. Yes so google being its own government. Basically within our own country never should have been allowed to be this big or powerful comes in and says oh we don't like the attorney general's office in texas because their lawsuit is so brilliantly written. Let's go cut their budget. Because we have offices in austin and somehow we can justify and that's what they're willing to do absolutely. I think it's pretty smart. I mean if they get my budget by twenty five percent which was the strategy That makes it very difficult for me to carry. I actually asked also for money for the google case. I asked for forty three million dollars. Go fight go well they obviously. We're trying to fight that as well that imagine. I don't get the money to to fight him. But also lose the rest of my you know a high percentage of my budget and have to lay off a bunch of lawyers instead of ramping up to go fight them. That's nearly what happened.

They were concerned about big tech and how is affecting their lives. How data was being taken from them.

Who knew a lot about tech and Obviously antitrust experts and just all kinds of different people and we really came down to the case against google. We thought there are plenty of other things to look at but that was where we thought we should start and our case is complicated away but it's also simple in another way. We have an obligation to protect consumers. Make sure there's competition and so an antitrust case is designed to.

Get a bunch of slippers dream sheets pillows and more promo code kirk so i want to get too many other topics here But let's get into election integrity. You see the side. They're not just upset about the texas pro-life law from they're also upset about the law that they say it's the hardest state in the country to vote in and tell us what's really going on in the fight for election integrity in the great attacks so we almost ended up in the same situation is georgia and arizona and some of these other states where we would be counting votes What we did differently in texas as we defended twelve lawsuits that were aimed in pretty liberal counties. Travis which is austin houston which is a bare kennywood san antonio and in those counties. We were sued over our laws related to mail in ballots and signature verification. We were fortunate. We had twelve of those. It was a major onslaught. We won every single one of those lawsuits so instead of counting votes on election day we had already protected our elections. Now what we're doing is we're actually expanding voting hours. And we're limiting some of the little tricks that were that were attempted in harris county and some other places to go beyond the legislature authorized as far as it relates voting. And so we've tried to tighten up male unbalanced by requiring photo. Id which i think is very significant because my office prosecutes Voter fraud. it's the only thing we prosecute. We have more voter fraud cases going now than we ever have. We have were five hundred cases in court another almost four hundred cases that were investigating and more than a majority of those relate to mail in ballot fraud so with legislature was trying to do was expand hours. Give more opportunity to vote. We already have two weeks early voting in texas so it's pretty significant but at the same time we realized we still have some voter fraud issues especially as it relates to mail in ballots. So i want to zero in on the said. There's five hundred cases that you've brought to to indictment. Is that right around for the we have. We have five hundred over five counts. That were prosecuting right now. We we have not brought him into indictment because covert actually shut the course down in texas for quite a while. We're and we're now we're wait. We're waiting line behind violent offenders to get those cases in but we have more cases going right now related to voter fraud than i think we've had in the entire history of texas if you add up the number that we're investigating plus the number that we're prosecuting. I think it's a larger number. All the cases ever prosecuted in texas. Can you give us a taste or an example of some of these cases. 'cause we are told every day with almost religious incantation voter fraud doesn't exist if you believe it. You're a racist bigot. Just give us one or two examples that your office uncovered and that will eventually get to trial. Yes so we had one in gregg county which is We had a commissioner win by like a few votes and we determined through our investigation. There had been over three hundred mail in ballots. That were fraudulently filled out. So we prosecuted that commissioner or. We are prosecuting that commissioner. We had we had another mayor win in in in south texas in in a town in south texas. It was the same type of issue male and ballot-fraud people voting that were supposed to vote. We we prosecuted One person who is illegal and she voted ten different times Clearly a violation of law. And so those are the types of things that we've prosecuted. And i would argue that. It actually has increased voting in texas because people vote when they have confidence in in the election being credible and so this is really important. Because we're told that voter fraud does not exist. But you're also setting an example. Here can that. If you violate the law you will also prosecute. It's not just like pay a fine that you could go to jail. And i think that's important because that'll that'll send some fear into some people that might be thinking that they can institutionally break our laws when it comes to voting. Yeah a we also are prosecuted. Woman admitted on tape that she had committed. Seven thousand violations of the laws gotten over seven thousand votes illegal yet and i will say this. We're one of the few states are actually doing these prosecutions. You hear the narrative overdose. I read it every day and every arctic. Oh there's no proof of voter fraud. Well that's not true in my state when i started. We only had one person. Prosecuting voter fraud one. One attorney i asked the legislature for more on that we now have three. Those people are busy. If i had more lawyers i could. If i had more lawyers allocated to this or could get more money. We would be prosecute even more voter fraud. And what i think is going on most states. Don't dedicate the resources to go find the fraud and then prosecute. I just think it's terrific. What your office is doing with that specific issue so many other states are not doing that in arizona. Attorney general mark berna vich. It looks like he's going to really zero in on this in arizona which were cheering for him to do that. And were you know. We're actually going to see him sometime soon. He has a big opportunity right now in arizona to go after a lot of this look. When was the last time you had american meat..

"I if if they're in the situation of at least six weeks or have heartbeat. I want to read about the mississippi law. The next critical moment will arrive this fall when the supreme court takes up. Mississippi's fifteen week. Abortion ban in a case dobbs v jackson women's health organization. Are you helping them. Mississippi attorney. General's that right yeah. So it's their law. She's defending we fallen advocates on behalf of a amicus brief which is a brief in support of the mississippi law with twenty three other states. There's twenty four of us along with mississippi. So you get twenty. Five states is pretty pretty amazing because this is the first real direct assault on roe v. Wade basically argue. If you read our amicus brief it's pretty well done. It just discusses the precedent how it's constantly been changing. How states don't have any certainty as to what the lawyers and and this idea that somehow there was this constitutional right. Doesn't make a lot of sense since that constitutional right and that standard keeps changing from trimesters to the casey rules about undue burden to women. And so it's all very confusing. They should just get out of the business of changing the law. Spring court that is of changing the law every couple of years and just let the states regulate abortion and let let let each state make that decision. I i totally agree. And according to the washington post nine out of ten women in texas get abortions in the first six weeks of pregnancy. This will save lives and also. Can you look at the polling. it's also popular. If you look at the people in texas sixty percent of texans believe there right in that kind of middle ground where they say that we want more restrictions on abortion and that six weeks or heartbeat is a good place to land now. Obviously i would like to see abortion. Go away completely as as a grassroots conservative. But texans want this. Now there's no doubt and that's the way it should be. I mean we had abortion restrictions before the supreme court came in in nineteen seventy two and struck him down not just in our state but every state and the reality. Is you know these these. Legislators who make these laws are elected by the people and we ought to let those people debate and decide what's best for their citizens and not have some court in dc. Tell us you know makeup constitutional right that never existed before in the history of this country. So i'm encouraged because we're making progress and we've continued this fight and we're going to continue the fight until we are a position where our state controls these decisions and we can. We can have the opportunity to save some of these unborn children while the biden. Doj's unit everything cancer go after it which means you're doing the right thing as.

"Attorney general. Ken paxton is our guest. General paxton the left often says that while we complain about fraud in the electoral process. We don't seem to be able to prove that it's actually happening but your office does do that. How big a problem is this. And how many cases can you okay. It's huge we only have three full-time prosecutors. I started we had one. We have more cases in the pipeline. We have hundreds of cases in the pipeline right now that we were not able to take the core because kobe tobin. Slow this down the court shut down for almost a year. And now we're not a priority because they're taking the violent offender cases. I and so we're still waiting. But we've got hundreds of cases we've got more cases than we've ever had The numbers are staggering. So we definitely have chases where we think. Voter fraud has been committed. And that's what limited resources and limited time. We still have more cases than we can handle. So if i had more resources. I'm convinced we'd be bringing more voter fraud cases and we already have when you see these cases. What is the hallmark. What is what is the tell that this fraud is it. The same signature on a bunch of these is it a witness comes forward and what what's the basis for these cases. How can you tell well both of those. In every case that's that's a challenging about these cases. They're all very fact specific. We can't just people report fraud to me and they want me to just follow lawsuit. Take somebody court and try to put him in prison. We actually have to go out and investigate. I send investigators out. They spend some time you know more than a year the investigation. Sometimes we're working in county shockingly. That won't help us and so we have to. We have to do a lot of it on around these cases a real work and they're all very fact specific and they their people do it in different ways. You know the easiest case we had was veritas. Brought us this video. This woman admitting on tape you probably thought she had been involved in seven thousand different fraudulent votes in that one election cycle. We don't use yet it. That easy one was as easy as it gets general paxton. We're losing you again. General paxton are you there. We lose alana just on it. Okay there we are. We lost you for a minute there. Sorry about that. I'm driving from houston. That's all right. I want to ask you. Because i want give you a chance to respond. George bush jabs son has been saying some pretty nasty things about you and wants to take your job. Does that surprise you. How do you respond you know. No i mean. I don't i think he's trying to escape the general land office. You know we all know the slogan. Remember the alamo has something he didn't remember and I think he's running from that alamo project. He's running from the fact that he didn't do his job Doling out disaster funds from the hurricane houston initially got almost nothing which is shocking And i don't understand that. I wish he would explain his own job before he starts criticizing me. But i'm happy to talk about my record. In in fighting the biden administration the obama administration big tech going after backpage dot com on human trafficking and fighting for election integrity both nationally with our lawsuits against those four states or locally where we're pursuing voter fraud every day. So i'd rather focus on what i've done and let him if he if he has anything to talk about. Hopefully he can talk about what he's done. Which so far. I haven't seen much up. What are you working on right now. What are the biggest areas of focus for the texas attorney general. The biggest areas are related to the biden administration and dealing with immigration And we sued them over the keystone pipeline. Were on constant. And they've sued us over our medicaid program So we so much of what we're doing right now is dealing with the federal government overreach. And they're they're ignoring of federal law and the constitution and trying to abuse texans That's a huge part of what we're doing. We've got that. We got the largest anti trust case in the history literally the country Against google and we have likely other lawsuits against companies coming and then we've continued focus on human trafficking and then election integrity and trot. So those are kind of the big areas. I'm focused on. Because i think those are the ones that matter to texans and with our limited budget are limited resources. I want to focus on things that really matter to the state and some of these things matter to the entire country. You said something that you're not the first one to say this has been talked about a lot. You said that. George bush you say quote. He's got this mentality that he's going to be president someday. He's gotta get started. I remember when he was first announcing that he was going to run the announcement was he was going to run for something he just had to decide what it was going to be. And that did not sit well with me. It's as if he is entitled because his last name is bush and he's hispanic. It's as if he's entitled to this office. And in the stair steps and i find that a lot of the rich republicans that the sort of country club class that that you know pine for for his his grandfather they go along with. This is that he looks depart. That he's hispanic. We gotta have hispanics because his mother happen be hispanic and it just something to me very off pudding about everything related to this. It's everything we don't stand for. I feel exactly the same way. I don't feel like he has the same values that i do. The most texans at least most republicans care about. And i feel like he you know. He was for the longest time. He was running for. Lieutenant governor against dan patrick. He talked about running for governor among some people he's it just seemed like he was just trying to pick the place that you know allowed him to take the next step to move up the ladder and you know the reality is. He just got his license back in october. hasn't practice. I think for almost ten years and only briefly practice before then so this is a real legal job. I mean this is probably the largest loss. law firm the the country or in the state and we have forty two employees of lawyers. And we deal with real issues. And if you don't know much about the law you're like a rookie on the law. Then you're going to have trouble doing this job and if you can't manage the land office you certainly shouldn't step up and try to run this one. It's going to be interesting to watch because many of our listeners closely watched what happened with the alamo. And i'll tell you what to run him out on a rail tar and feather that man hamming really at how he handled that. And i don't think i don't think the folks that have have made a passionate pursuit of preserving the alamo are going to sit idly by while he seeks a higher office. I think that's going to be an interesting thing to observe. Well and he's not gonna want to answer questions about that because there's so much Answered questions. I mean more important monuments that we have at texas in the alamo and it appears like he's trying to give it away to other people moving away from the history to something sure about in texas because he came from florida he didn't really know the history. But i think texans and even people that have new tier care about the alamo and then it'd be preserved in a way that that represents what actually happened there. Not some globalist Rendition of of history. That doesn't really tell the real story of what happened. At the alamo. Maybe put an exclamation mark after his name to get people more excited. We shall see attorney general. Ken paxton keep up the good work sir..

"Even the liberal washington post has a story voter. Id laws have proved popular despite democratic arguments that they amount to voter suppression and some activists have concluded that they do less to suppress the vote than they initially feared. A new report out says eight and ten voters agree. Seventy eight percent save voter. id is reasonable valid. Seventy seven percent. Say campaigns should be funded by candidates and not the government. Both of these contradict what is in h. r. one which senator ted cruz has made clear. Very many times was a bill designed to give the democrats greater power and never lose an election. The man in the state of texas who prosecutes fifty eight percent of the oh. Ag that's the office of attorney. General election fraud prosecutions. He notes are related to mail. Ballot fraud attorney. General ken. paxton is our guest general. Paxton it looks like hr one is going to die and not be passed. Why is that good for us. I can't tell you how happy that makes me that to me was one of the absolute most anti-democratic bill that i have ever seen because it would have enshrined in code in statue in law things that allow for voter fraud right and left voter from ballot to massive mail in ballots to allowing felons devote everything we do in texas to protect election. That bill would have tried to undo and geno. We're losing you. I don't know if you're on the road or just in a bad spot general paxton. Yes yes can you hear me lost that. We lost the last part of that of that answer. If just said it would put us in a position where voters would have had no confidence in in the election. I think less people would be voting because they would actually not trust the election. That's exactly what has happened consistently around the world is when you build in integrity for the system. More people vote. That is exactly right when you see mail. Ballot fraud. That your office of the attorney. General's office is prosecuting. How is that generally carried out. I mean typically people filling out ballots massive number of valid for for people that don't even know they're voting and because there's no voter There's no photo. id with it and in texas. You have a signature verification. A lotta times. That's hard to hard to prove. Not the right thing that you're in so it tends to be a pretty easy way. If you want to commit fraud it tends to be a pretty easy way to do it. And it's really hard for us to go find it. We have to somehow. Have somebody tell us about it. We don't know that people are doing this unless somebody reports on. It's very difficult to find it so it's a very efficient way to do it and it's hard for us end up. You know discovering it. They're doing it. You have noted that the biden administration's policies with regard to illegal immigration are hitting texas very hard and that the primary beneficiary is the cartels. Why do you say that. The cartels are making a fortune off because they charge. I mean to cross the border. You pretty much have to pay them. And i know the lowest cost diverted about four thousand dollars per person in some places. The average is eight thousand. It goes up to fifty thousand. Meanwhile so these four people that are coming here. They're only way in is to be relying on the cartel so i don't think that's a very good way for them to have some of this country even if we decided that everyone from you know central. America's should be allowed into our country. It's a really bad way for them to have to on the other. Hand the cost. Texans and the cost of the united states for illegal immigration both social and economic higher crime rates and just the economic cost of having to pay for it all is tremendous so there's really no upside to anybody you want an upside to accept the cartels who are making billions of dollars off of transporting people and then because the borders more open 'cause border patrol so busy with the logistics of people. They're now getting more drugs through even they're making more money on drugs. Yeah i read a story. I can't remember where but it quoted one of the sector chiefs one rio grande. It was maybe laredo. And he said it's their estimation that the cartels are making more off of human trafficking now through through this illegal immigration than they are drugs which is the first time that that would be the case. I guess it's hard to know but the fact that there's even a conversation being had tells you how big this deal is for them absolutely you just thinking about the numbers like if the if the lowest cost is four thousand per person but the average is probably more like ten and these people are probably having to pay to get moved around in the country and then the cartels have hooked into them. Because they can't pay so then they become you know usable for other things in the country. I mean i don't even know the mo the numbers are probably astronomical for them and it probably is now more profitable than in the drug trade. The masterpiece cake shop owner has been hit again by the colorado commission. They're and they're they're want him to make a cake. that is a picture of satan smoking joint. He doesn't believe in in smoking pot. And of course he's a a christian that masterpiece case gave a lot of l- religious liberty protections and then we saw case The one out of philadelphia with the catholic church there this week which i think narrowly protected religious liberty. What happens in the state of texas if somebody walks in and says hey i want you to make me a cake for a gay wedding and the the owner says. I'm sorry i'll make any other cake. But i won't make that. What would happen. So those cases you mentioned the one with The colorado case with jack and then the the the the one in philadelphia we were amicus. We were both we were part of both amicus briefs and lead in both of those cases it so i believe today that that's the law that people have a right to their religious views. And that if if somebody doesn't wanna make a cake because it's against their disease they are. They are not obligated to do so. I'm not saying they won't get sued. Unfortunately as you mentioned in colorado they just they're abusive and they for some reason feel like entitled to to force people to go against their religious. But that's not the law in america never has been and you think that the state of texas not pushing the way the state of colorado is would give you more protections in texas. Because it's admiral regulations are federal regulators that are causing these people problems in colorado. It's the local in the state. That's exactly right and and if we heard about it we definitely Let people know we would. We would find a way into a case like that if if somebody was persecuting somebody because of their their religious belief we would absolutely. We've done it many times over we've been involved in pali. I've been in office way. More religious liberty cases than i ever anticipated twenty five or thirty Even in texas.

Id to go to the fifth circuit to get into the court here that using photo ideas discriminatory so it we know it's not discriminatory because everyone knows you have to have a photo. Id the reality is. It's covered in discrimination but the reality is the only reason you don't want people have a photo is so that people can cheat. That's that's. that's the only rational answer as to why certain people want no photo. Id requirements now another subject that john is very passionate about and he's very knowledgeable about the energy energy crisis that we're now going to texas recovered. I from the the big problems in energy. I said yeah. I mean we're investigating. My office is investigating. I think the legislatures trying to pass thing. I don't know if they're gonna come back clues. But my goal is a as the attorney general of texas to find out what happened and bring some transparency and try to figure out how we can prevent what happened in february now. That was the worst cold weather spell. I've ever seen but it's still an issue that needs to be addressed and we hope of the next year or so through our investigation to at least uncover the Answers to what actually happened so that we can present alternatives for the legislature and the governor to try to address the problem. What do you think about. What's going on with the colonial pipelines. You think there needs to be tighter cybersecurity controls of because obviously there's a lot of pipelines everything going on in texas and the fact that they're so vulnerable to these hackers and they're making so much money off of it by hacking into what we thought was secure. What do you think. Oh absolutely but even more. So the biden administration should not be trying to shut down the keystone pipeline. Which would provide a backup if there was a problem with another pipeline when on the other hand they're supporting the pipeline from russia into germany. So it's kind of odd concerned about the environmental impact of the keystone pipeline. Which by the way is is good on environment because it's a lot less as much More environmentally sound safe to transport it by pipeline than is a real car so but the biden administration has done is really anti-american. It shutdown job. It's made us less secure and it's called. It's costing americans more while they're endorsing a pipeline from russia to germany. I've really just doesn't make any sense. And they're pushing this kind of green new energy and we're john. We were talking about it before about china's seems to be profiting from all of this more so than anybody more so than the united states..

"Of what we think is going on so once the than they have to be moved to pay more money so as they're being moved around of course the biden administration is not forthcoming telling us where these people are going. We have a pretty good idea of the cartels. Keep track of these people and they're they're sort of indebted to them because they can't necessarily always afford to pay the price and so it's a pretty good little system for the cartels that i think they're going to continue to tell you ends up thanks to provide and we're talking about tens of thousands of people coming in and and i was listening to a former president trump. He had a interview on last night and he was saying that the border wall was about a month away from completion. Is that true. And i mean. Do you just gaping holes in the motors. Just missing to put in through the gates. I mean this doesn't even make any sense. Why not just finish the wall. That's such a great question because the the reality was they were making great progress. It's i've seen the wall. It's really a marvel and engineering seat and also They were using technology as they put the wall. It was also believe it or not at least in the mcallen area. it was The formation of of A sort of blocking of of flooding so they had to tear down the old dykes and they put these and when they torn down the now. They're not replacing him by an administration is all creating greater risk of flooding along the rio grande valley so we're going to experience a little more flooding than we should because they've refused to finish the wall. That's incredible and now as a result you've got the border border control patrol down so they need more bodies while they're focused on kind of plugging up those holes than you're having children coming in and the cartels and drugs in god only knows what else at one point texas took the position an forget it was the government will tell you that we we're gonna protect protect the borders. We're going to send the national guard down near What has superior is that. The federal government can tell you. This is the way it's going to be or texas can take their own position so we spent hundreds of millions of dollars things police we. We've got national guards down there. But according to the us supreme court case three decided you know a decade or to go by It was a it was a five three decision. I think justice kagan recused herself the three little judges. Justice kennedy justice roberts When arizona tried to pass laws protect themselves because the federal government wouldn't do it The court said that it was preempted. State preempted even if the federal government passes a law and doesn't follow its own laws and even though it doesn't protect citizens the states are are precluded so if for example somebody is crossing the border in texas and arctic national guard or state police.

I don't remember exact numbers but it was It was. I think there were some. Even democrats have voted for it We're pretty strong. Second amendment state and I think it was it was. It was time for for something like this path. Wow that's incredible. Maybe because of the border crisis kind of getting out of control people are worrying. Is there a crime issue. They're like we're seeing here in new york city and chicago and los angeles. Yeah we have both obviously the borders over twelve hundred miles of border. The biden administration has allowed the cartels cart launch Come into our state and bring as many people as they can at each to. Those people are charged. You know eight thousand dollars or so. And so that's becoming a huge issue with trafficking of drugs and people and then of course we ought to have cut their police force by a the third. At least and you know it's gonna affect crime so i think people feel a lot less safe than they did a few months ago. Can you give us an estimate of the number of people crossing into the border illegally. So i was just in laredo Two days ago. I was meeting with the mayor. And some of the city officials accounting for the sheriff accounting officials that all official border patrol state officials state police In in the number of about three times what we're about a year ago is what they told me and so the numbers continue to increase I don't think it will stop because the cartels. It's like an tested economic stimulus package for the country. Well this this particular policy by administration is economic stimulus for the cartels because they are incentivized the more people they can bring the more money they make. And of course it also keeps the border patrol smug more trucks but every person that they they bring up here according to the local people. There's about eight thousand dollars so you know they're going to be seeking people out to come to the united states because it's so profitable for the cartels eight thousand dollars per person to sneak them in poor people come from up with eight thousand miles slavery..
