Texas is transferring inmates from a corrections facility in South Texas so it can handle criminal illegal immigrants, as the state’s governor moves to arrest those in the country illegally who have committed a state or federal crime as part of the state’s response to the crisis at the southern border.
The Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) confirmed that the state’s Department of Criminal Justice has started moving inmates from the Dolph Briscoe Unit in Dilley to other facilities with capacity across the state. That will allow capacity for criminal illegal immigrants.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The state of Texas continues to deal with a significant number of individuals illegally crossing the border,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “To address the ongoing crisis, Governor Abbott is directing state resources to arrest and confine those individuals crossing the border unlawfully and who have committed a state or federal crime.”
According to the report, the facility is near Laredo and contains about 1,000 beds, and inmates were transferred to other facilities with capacity.
“TDCJ is working collaboratively with the Office of the Governor, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Commission on Jail Standards, Texas Commission on Law Enforcement, and the Texas Division of Emergency Management to ensure the safe and secure detention of unlawful immigrants charged with a state offense,” the statement continued.
This week, Governor Greg Abbott announced new measures to combat the border crisis, including a $250 million down payment on a border wall.
