Texas Sheriff Goes Rogue, Places 4 Illegals in His Car and Heads for the Border

One Texas sheriff has had enough.

Sheriff Brad Coe of Kinney County took four illegal aliens to the border himself after a suspected smuggler driving the migrants crashed while evading arrest, The Epoch Times reported.

Sheriff Coe’s deputies arrested the suspected smuggler on seven felony counts.

However, it was up to the federal authorities to detain the migrants who were accompanying him.

Sheriff Coe says that Border Patrol declined to arrest four migrants, claiming they could only detain them if they accepted medical assistance after the crash.

As a result, Sheriff Coe loaded the four illegal migrants into his truck and drove them to the nearest border crossing an hour away.

He dropped off the migrants at Eagle Pass, a border crossing that’s been swamped with illegal immigration during Joe Biden’s presidency.

“Well, they had declined any type of medical help,” said Coe of the illegal immigrants, speaking to the Times.

“But to let them go, undocumented, unaccounted for, just go because of a policy — I couldn’t do it,” said Coe. “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.”

Immigration enforcement has traditionally been considered a responsibility of the federal government.

It’s not clear if Coe’s actions could be legally considered a deportation.

If the migrants voluntarily accompanied the sheriff to be returned to Mexico, his actions would likely withstand legal scrutiny.

Gov. Greg Abbott hailed Coe’s actions in a Wednesday press conference at Eagle Pass.

“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,” Abbott said.

With federal law enforcement limited to a reduced role under Biden, state and local authorities have considered taking greater action to protect the integrity of their own international borders.

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has proposed an interstate compact to efficiently deport illegal aliens without interference from Washington.

    When Biden illegally violates Federal immigration laws and illegally orders the Border Patrol to not enforce immigration laws, what are local law enforcement expected to do? The Border Patrol is now a Federal Travel Agency allowing nearly anyone into the US and providing free air travel to anywhere in the country the illegals want to go. Dumping them in communities with no resources to support them. How can the new battle with the states and the Feds go? States are obligated to protect their citizens and Abide by Federal laws. So when the Feds violate their own laws what are they to do? Pushed far enough the border states may withdraw from the union and establish their own immigration laws. Imagine Biden having to buy and import oil from Texas. Without Fed constraints Texas would be free to develop their own oil industry, rivaling other foreign country’s. Texas would be a very rich “country”! Let the idiots in DC chew on that possibility.. The “union” of the US was to establish a common economy and defense. That no longer exists!

    Liberals – HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST THAT I CAN’T JUST SAY ABORTION IS A RIGHT, IT’S NOT REQUIRED TO BE IN THE CONSTITUTION, I SAY IT’S A RIGHT AND ALL CITIZENS ARE GUARANTEED THAT RIGHT!

    Also liberals – OUR CONSTITUTION DEMANDS THAT YOU NOT ENFORCE THE BORDER! ALL PEOPLE ARE PROTECTED UNDER IT, HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST OUR LAWS APPLY TO OUR CITIZENS! THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO GO ANYWHERE, AT ANY TIME, YOU CAN’T STOP THEM!

    Also liberals – I DO NOT GIVE A FLYING RAT’S ASS WHAT THE 2ND AMENDMENT SAYS, I DECLARE IT VOID, DAMN YOU BIGOTS, OBEY ME!

    KUDOS to the Sheriff who took matters into his own hands! We don’t want or NEED criminals crossing into our country no matter WHAT obiden wants! And yes, coming here illegally is a crime.
    Enter LEGALLY or don’t enter at all. I realize ICE may have certain rules they are bound by and that under the current administration their hands are hogtied, but SOMEONE has to do the job.
