Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst (R) stated his desire to expand the state’s border security surge across the entire border in order to “shut down the border” on Wednesday’s “Sean Hannity Show.”
Dewhurst declared that he has long been “fed up” with the federal government’s failure to secure the southern border, and stated that when the federal government fails in its duty, states have, not just a right, but an “obligation” to act to protect their citizens.
He expressed his support for expanding the additional security the state has put on the border, saying “we’re successfully closing down…a whole zone of our border, and I want to expand it, shut down the whole border.”
