According to a report by CNSNEWS.COM since January 1st, we have had more than 20,000 people come across the border, apprehended and unauthorized.  “We all saw what happened on the Texas border last summer, but we need to understand that the problem is not going away,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott told CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer on Sunday.  Schieffer reminded Abbott that there are some 800,000 illegal aliens living in Texas right now. “You don’t have enough buses to send them back to Mexico, and I don’t expect you can put all of them in jail. What are you going to do with them?” he asked Abbott. “Well, two things,” the governor responded. “One is, the president himself said as these people were coming across the border that he would repatriate them as soon as possible. So, we need to see whether or not the president himself is going to live up to the commitment that he made.” Abbott said the second thing is to let Congress — not the president — decide how to deal with the millions of people who are in the United States illegally: “And so we need Congress to have the latitude to fulfill its responsibility to solve the problem.” FULL STORY
