Watch: Border Chief DEFIES Joe Biden

During a CBS News interview on Thursday, Jason Owens, the Border Patrol Chief, addressed a query regarding the Texas border law. He emphasized the effective collaboration between the Border Patrol and the Texas Department of Public Safety, highlighting that the law will not hinder the Border Patrol’s ability to carry out its duties. Owens expressed confidence in the continued successful partnership between the Border Patrol and the Texas Department of Public Safety.

CBS News asked, “The State of Texas right now is asking federal courts to allow it to enforce a law known as S.B. 4 — I’m sure you’re familiar with it — which would allow the state to arrest migrants on criminal charges and to order them to go back to Mexico. Would that law make the situation worse or better?”

Owens answered, “So, we’ll have to see what the courts decide. … I will tell you, it’s not going to stop us from doing our job. I’ll tell you that, especially in Texas, there’s no better partner for the Border Patrol than the Texas Department of Public Safety. We have worked hand-in-hand with that agency for as long as I’ve been around, and I don’t see that ever stopping. They have always been very good at complementing our mission. They back us up when we’re out in the field and we do for them as well. So, whatever the laws are that they’re going to be enforcing, our mission remains constant, their mission remains constant. And, at the ground level, I don’t see it ever changing where we’re going to be there to work together to make sure that we keep the communities and our country safe.”
