California Republican blasts state law requiring stores to have gender-neutral toy sections
Texas authorities have arrested nearly 10,000 migrants who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border under a new “arrest and jail” operation aimed at deterring illegal immigration.
Following the successful arrests, Texas passed a new law that will bolster the smaller-scale operation to expand the authority to make arrests, as well as give local judges the authority to order the migrants out of the country. The changes go into effect in March.
The new law comes after Texas first launched the smaller-scale operation to arrest migrants on misdemeanor trespassing charges in July 2021 as Texas-Mexico border crossings reached 1.2 million that fiscal year.
The initiative allows border landowners to enter agreements with the state authorizing trespassing arrests, clearing the way for law enforcement to apprehend migrants who enter the U.S. through those properties.
