Lt. Olivarez Describes How Texas is Taking on More Responsibility Securing the Southern Border

Lt. Chris Olivarez from the Texas Department of Public Safety joined Ainsley Earhardt Thursday morning on FOX and Friends to discuss how the state of Texas is ramping up their efforts to secure the southern border as the federal government fails to do so. 

Olivarez shared that Texas is taking on the responsibility now even more than they already were with Governor Abbott’s ‘Operation Lonestar’ initiative by adding even more law enforcement to monitor and secure the border. Olivarez cited the deaths of immigrants at the hands of human smugglers who are stuffing them into commercial vehicles, trailers, wooden crates and trunks of cars. Olivarez explained that Texas’s increased efforts are meant to crackdown on these human smuggling events to prevent more mass casualties.
