Texas Senator Says 100,000 ‘Illegal Gang Members’ Are In The State

Breitbart – by Tony Lee

Hours before Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced he would send National Guard troops to the border, Texas state Senator Dan Patrick said there are at least 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members in the state.

On Monday’s The Laura Ingraham Show, Patrick, who is also the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, said from 2008 to 2012, 143,000 illegal immigrant criminals were arrested and jailed in Texas. He said these were “hardened criminals, gang members, and other criminals that we identified as being in Texas illegally.”   

“We charged them with 447,000 crimes, a half-million crimes in four years, just in Texas, including over 5,000 rapes and 2,000 murders,” Patrick said. “We estimate we have 100,000 gang members here illegally.”

Patrick also observed during his trips to the border and detention centers that many of the “young children” are teenagers and with parents and family members. He said there is a concern that some are “gang members” and that potential terrorists can exploit the porous border.

In addition to the public safety threat, Patrick also discussed the strain on local schools and other public resources and accused the Obama administration of luring more illegal immigrants to the country after unilaterally enacting the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. He also accused the Obama administration of “sweeping human beings under the rug” by putting illegal immigrants on buses to cities across America and releasing children to adults who may not be their family members. Patrick also said Border Patrol agents have found “hundreds and hundreds of dead bodies on our side of the border” as more migrants try to trek to the United States hoping to get amnesty from Obama.

Noting that 60,000 illegal immigrant children have been apprehended since October of last year, Patrick said that law enforcement officials told him that somewhere between one in five and one in 10 illegal immigrants are actually caught, which means there could be at least five times as many illegal immigrants who have snuck into the state.

“You do the math,” Patrick said.

  1. well they ignored the problem long enough, but now it’s a chance to get their faces on TV before the next election, so everyone’s concerned about the “immigration problem.”

    This has been going on for twenty years. If any of these lying politicians wanted that border closed it wold have been done a long time ago. I don’t want to hear today’s lies. They stated their position on the matter by allowing and encouraging it for two decades, and lying to the public.

  2. “He said there is a concern that some are “gang members” and that potential terrorists can exploit the porous border.”

    The ‘concern’ (right) about the gang members is legitimate. The ‘concern’ about “potential terrorists” however, is ludicrous.

    They’re already here and ‘running’ (ruining, actually) this country, posing as the so-called ‘government’.

  3. How come corporations can cross borders and go into any country they want, and aren’t called “illegal aliens”? Citizens United SCOTUS decision said corporations are people, and their $$$ is their “free speech”. So why aren’t corporations called “illegal aliens” like Volkswagen & Toyota in the U.S., and U.S. corporations that cross the borders into 3rd world countries for cheap labor?

  4. yeah and now those 100,000 illegals are also a threat to our legal system, our jails our prisons and local populace ..oh and definitely a threat to our Hhahah “law enforcement” (if thats what you want to call it)
    this is going to back fire on them like no tomorrow
    sure us average citizens might catch some sh*t from it too , but you can rest assured our government and our “legal system” is going to get hit hard

    by the way go buy a gun ,, yer gonna need it

    it takes money to run the court system..something these illegals have absolutely none of ..so again that will pull it out of you and I, and as this goes our court system and jail systems will be punched right in the gut, chances are they will be releasing a ton of these types out on to the streets with us, because no money to house or prosecute them
    everyone gets the D7ck up the A$$ from this government ,every tax payer
