(Austin, Texas) Today, the House of Representatives passed House Bill 11, a bill aimed at creating a comprehensive long term solution to Texas’s border security problems. Specifically, HB 11 authorizes an additional 300 DPS troopers for border security operations, criminalizes the act of inducing a person to enter the country illegally, strengthens state smuggling laws to effectively target the organized criminal element infiltrating our border, along with other reforms. The legislation also protects local control by creating the “Texas Transnational Crime Intelligence Center", which would be staffed by local police and sheriffs to serve as a real-time, around-the-clock intelligence hub for state and local law enforcement agencies.
