"The action I am ordering today will tackle this crisis head-on by multiplying our efforts to combat the cartel activity, human traffickers and individual criminals who threaten the safety of people across Texas and America."
Mr. Perry himself reports that in the past six years, Texas county jails have incarcerated on 203,000 "criminal aliens" who have committed 640,000 crimes, including over 3,000 homicides.
