DALLAS, TX, September 28, 2021 — Following a news report from the Texas Tribune detailing that many of the illegal aliens arrested under the orders of Gov. Greg Abbott are being released into the state, conservative Republican candidate for governor Don Huffines condemned Abbott’s catch and release program and demanded illegal aliens be deported.
Huffines issued the following statement:
“Our state is being invaded and our governor is failing to defend Texans. Greg Abbott promised Texans he would secure the border and he would ‘catch and jail’ illegal aliens who enter our state. However, news reports today show that instead of keeping Texans safe from criminal illegal aliens by deporting them back across the border, Greg Abbott is releasing them in the state. While he continues to blame Joe Biden, he has implemented his own ‘catch and release’ program.”
Huffines further added:
“Texans deserve a secure border and leaders who keep their word. Greg Abbott has failed on both fronts and his continued refusal to combat this invasion of illegal aliens leaves Texans less safe. When I am governor, I will keep my promises to Texans and do whatever it takes to secure the border even if it means taking on the federal government. I’m not asking for permission.”
Don Huffines is a proud fifth-generation Texan, husband, father, grandfather, and self-made entrepreneur. A committed conservative, Huffines is fighting to safeguard Texans’ elections, phase out property taxes, and secure the border once and for all. Huffines is challenging Gov. Greg Abbott from the right in the Texas Republican primary. Texans deserve leadership. No excuses.
