TEXAS TOUGH: Sheriff Drives Migrants Back to Border, 'I Have to Protect the Constitution'

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.30.22

According to a report from The New York Post, a Texas Sheriff, fed up with Biden’s broken border policies, personally drove 4 apprehended migrants back to the border to deport them; the migrants were caught in a smuggling operation.

“Kinney County Sheriff Brad Coe told the Epoch Times the migrants were discovered after a suspected smuggling vehicle his deputies were pursuing crashed on Wednesday morning,” the Post reports.

Five illegal immigrants were found inside the vehicle, one was injured and taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. “They had declined any type of medical help,” Coe said of the four uninjured migrants.

“So I can’t let them walk the streets. I can’t say, ‘Hey, go, be free.’ Because I still have to protect the Constitution and protect the people in the county.”

He added, “To let them go, undocumented, unaccounted for, just go because of a policy — I couldn’t do it.”

Coe said he put them all into his sheriff’s vehicle and drove an hour to Eagle Pass, where there’s an official port of entry to Mexico.

The sheriff dropped the four migrants off in the middle of the international bridge.

The driver, a Mexican national who was wearing cartel-lined insignia, was arrested and is now facing seven felony charges.

“It’s going to be the exception rather than the rule. But at the same time, if Border Patrol won’t take a group for whatever reason, I don’t have a choice,” Coe said.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott praised Coe —and all his Texas sheriffs for doing tough work at the border.

“I applaud all of our sheriffs for having to respond in unprecedented conditions. And that’s causing all of us to use unprecedented action,” Abbott said.

“And so whether it’s doing what that sheriff in Kinney County is doing, or what we’re doing, such as turning back more than 20,000 people, we all have our own tools and strategies that we use to either turn back or to return people across the border.”
