One Texas sheriff has reached his limit.
Sheriff Brad Coe of Kinney County transported four illegal aliens across the border himself after a suspected smuggler driving the migrants wrecked while fleeing arrest, The Epoch Times reported.
Sheriff Coe’s deputies apprehended the alleged smuggler on seven felony counts.
However, it was up to the federal authorities to imprison the migrants who were with him.
Sheriff Coe reports that Border Patrol declined to apprehend four migrants, stating they could only keep them if they received medical care after the incident.
As a result, Sheriff Coe placed the four illegal migrants into his truck and drove them to the nearest border crossing an hour away.
He dropped off the migrants at Eagle Pass, a border crossing that’s been flooded with illegal immigration throughout Joe Biden’s presidency.
“Well, they had declined any type of medical help,” said Coe of the illegal immigrants, according to the Times.
“But to let them go, undocumented, unaccounted for, just go because of a policy — I couldn’t do it,” added Coe. “It’s going to be the exception rather than the rule. But at the same time, if Border Patrol won’t take a group for whatever reason, I don’t have a choice.”

If the migrants voluntarily accompanied the sheriff to be returned to Mexico, his actions would likely withstand legal scrutiny.
Gov. Greg Abbott hailed Coe’s actions in a Wednesday press conference at Eagle Pass. CONTINUE READING…
