The Texas Department of Public Safety has confirmed the arrest of Savion Johnson in Brackettville, Texas, on charges of evading arrest, human smuggling, and carrying a weapon unlawfully, emphasizing that the investigation is still ongoing.

Sheriff Brad Coe of Kinney County verified that the person being apprehended is a member of the Texas National Guard. A Texas National Guard source also affirmed his identity as a guardsman and disclosed that he was transporting the migrant in an official government vehicle.

The arrest was initially disclosed by NewsNation. Dashcam footage from the Kinney County Sheriff’s Office, obtained by Fox News, captured the moment when Johnson was taken into custody, with Texas DPS officers pulling him out of the vehicle. The migrant had fled from the car during the chase before the arrest took place.

Traitor and criminal

“If the allegations are true, the accused is a traitor and criminal,” Abbott Press Secretary Andrew Mahaleris said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

Zero tolerance

“We have zero tolerance for Texans who violate laws that directly contradict the mission we are seeking to achieve. The accused’s illegal smuggling may subject him to a mandatory minimum prison sentence of at least 10 years,” he said. “He deserves more.”

Operation Lone Star

Under Operation Lone Star, Governor Abbott has bolstered resources and law enforcement presence along the southern border to enhance security, citing a lack of federal government leadership.

Legal proceedings

Youtube

The release of the footage coincided with Texas engaging in legal proceedings against the Department of Justice at the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals regarding its contentious anti-illegal immigration legislation.

Enacted in December

This law, enacted in December, empowers local law enforcement to detain illegal immigrants but has been halted following a lawsuit from the Biden administration.

Essential

Texas contends that the law is essential due to the escalating influx of migrants arriving at the border.

Talk about millions

Youtube

“There’s always been people who cross the border,” Solicitor General Aaron Nielson said in court. “But before, we talked about hundreds of thousands. Now, we talk about millions. Before, we talked about tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors. Now, we talk about hundreds of thousands.”

All countries

Youtube

“Before, we talked about a few countries. Now, we talk about essentially all countries,” Nielson explained.

Texas’ efforts

Youtube

The administration claims Texas’ efforts, which include building razor wire and putting buoys in the Rio Grande, hinder federal enforcement of immigration law. The Supreme Court briefly allowed the Texas law to go ahead, before it was blocked hours later by the appeals court arguments on the merits of the case.
