FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
As Trump Era Immigration Rule Expires Next Month, Voters Pick Human Trafficking as Worst Outcome of Failure to Secure Southern Border
HOW MANY MORE? Rally in Austin, TX on April 29th to Push for Passage of HB 20 Before Major Trump Era Title 42 Rule Expires in May—Legislation Would Empower Texas to Create a State-Based Border Protection Unit, Repel the Invasion, and End the Humanitarian Crisis
Illegal Border Crossers and Asylum Seekers Released Into U.S. Without Review Also Top Concern
(Austin, TX—April 24, 2023) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted April 11th through April 14th of over 1,000 likely general election voters.
“Migrant women are raped by cartel members as part of their price for being smuggled across U.S. border, while 60% of unaccompanied alien children are caught by cartels and exploited through child pornography and drug trafficking.” said Mark Meckler, President of the Convention of States and organizer of the upcoming HOW MANY MORE? Rally in Austin, TX. “Add to that the 6 million illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. in the last 3 years and you have the definition of a humanitarian crisis. Yet Washington D.C. refuses to acknowledge this crisis. Now, with the federal government being derelict in its duty, states like Texas are taking the lead to address this crisis and secure our southern border.”
Mark Meckler is one of the organizers of the event, where he’ll be joined by Ted Nugent, Congressman Chip Roy, Lara Logan, and real-life victims and subject matter experts of the ongoing border crisis at the upcoming HOW MANY MORE? Rally on April 29th at the Texas State Capitol in Austin, TX. The rally is highlighting the unfolding crisis at the U.S. southern border with the dangerous influx of drugs like Fentanyl into the U.S., human trafficking, and the national security threat posed by drug cartels and international terrorist organizations.
