Lt. Gov. Patrick: Statement on President Donald Trump’s Executive Order


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick made the following statement today after President Donald Trump signed an executive order directing federal detention policy at the U.S. border:

“I support the executive action President Trump has taken today. No one wants to separate families and the president’s action will ensure that those who are crossing our border illegally are detained and our laws are enforced. I continue to urge Congress to move forward with an immigration plan that includes increased enforcement resources, a border wall, and reforms to the immigration process.”
