Sheriffs from across Texas have different views on how to handle the end of Title 42.

They seem agree that they have no way of knowing what's ahead when the the Trump era policy ends.

“The influx of people that are coming in is going to be quite a bit more than what we’ve been dealing with,” said Sheriff Arvin West from Hudspeth County.

Sheriffs in border cities across the state are preparing for the end of Title 42

They told KFOX14 they are working with limited resources.

“Up and down the border sheriff’s offices, police departments, they’re all short handed,” said West.

While sheriff’s offices across the state prepare, with limited resources, for the expected increase of migrants at the border when Title 42 ends, El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles takes a different stance.

“Local law enforcement should not enforce immigration law. That’s a federal responsibility,” Wiles said.

Wiles said the sheriff’s office is in constant communication with Border Patrol and the Department of Public Safety to help combat illegal smuggling, drugs, and human trafficking, but not immigration, unlike other sheriff’s offices in the state.

RECOMMENDED: Texas border sheriffs share efforts being made to mitigate expected migrant surge

“We’ve met and we’re ready to assist,” Sheriff Eddie Guerra Sheriff from Hidalgo County said.

Most sheriffs' said there is only so much they can do.

“We still have to respond to all the calls of service that come within our country. We're very limited in how we can help, but if the need is there, we will respond,” Guerra said.

Wiles said the only thing that will lighten the load for local law enforcement is federal change of immigration laws.

“So we can concentrate on a law enforcement perspective on people who would smuggle drugs into the United States, who would engage in crime in our border communities,” Wiles said.

Wiles said he doesn’t anticipate a significant increase in numbers.

He is expecting most of the migration to be seen in other counties east and south of El Paso County.

RECOMMENDED: Commercial drivers wait long hours at ports of entry after governor's new border order



Comments:
The impact of this liberal administration will be felt now and down the road, anyone with any sense recognizes there will be increases in human trafficking, illegal drugs, cartels, etc.

“Wiles said he doesn’t anticipate a significant increase in numbers.”

What a genius.
