Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton criticized President Biden’s administration for threatening to sue Texas over its border policies, accusing them of aiding and abetting cartel smugglers and human traffickers.

He also expressed concern about the control of the northern part of the Mexican border by drug cartels and the incentivization of cartels to bring as many people as possible across the border.

“Well, and now we’re getting reports that there’s some 15,000 people in a caravan moving up and north,” Fox News’ Jason Chaffetz said. (Trending: Donald Trump Breaks His Silence After Major Court Win)

“And, look, these are like daily numbers now coming out of Mexico, not all Mexicans, people from all across the world. We have no idea who these people are and what they’re trying to do.”

“So, Texas, I feel for you, because you’re trying to do something, and yet the Department of Justice wants to sue you over it, rather than ask for your help.”

“Well, not only that, but they’re cutting down our fences. They’re cutting down our wire. We sued them over that,” Paxton said.

“I mean, they won’t even let us, like, put up fences. They damage our property, coming onto our property. And then, of course, this threat of a lawsuit, because we merely want to protect our own citizens from the crime and the cost of illegal immigration, when it’s really their job to do it.”

“And, instead, we have got the Biden administration, as I said, aiding and abetting the cartels, encouraging the cartels to make billions of dollars and to bring as many people here as possible — as fast as possible and as soon as possible.”

“That’s what the Biden administration is doing. They’re not just not doing their job. They’re actually encouraging the opposite.”

“Well, it’s interesting to me when they went down and met with the Mexican president,” Chaffetz said.

“It made me wonder, are you meeting with the right people? Because it strikes me that the drug cartels, the mafia, if you will, is actually more in control of the northern part of the Mexican border than the Mexican government. And they could put troops up there. They could do things.”

“But I just really wonder who’s actually in control there in Northern Mexico.”

“Well, I think you’re right,” Paxton said.

“I mean, there’s no doubt that the Mexican government could do more to help us, and they did under the Trump administration, because President Trump insisted on it. But there is no doubt that the cartels have been incentivized. They’re making billions of dollars. They make $8,000 to $12,000 a person that they bring.”

“So they’re incentivized to bring as many people as possible. And, remember, it used to be, the way Border Patrol worked, they were there to stop people from coming across the border. And now the cartel doesn’t try to hide people. They don’t try to sneak people across. They take them directly to Border Patrol. It’s like a handoff.”

“So it’s a partnership. It’s not — it’s not the way it was supposed to be. But that’s where the Biden administration has taken us. They have taken us to a partnership with the cartels, so the cartels have the opportunity not only to make as much money with importation of humans, but also the border now is clear for their trafficking of drugs and other things that they make money off of.”

“And so they’re building this network, not just in Mexico, but across the country.”
