His first term he was pretty hard nosed. He proposed two major initiatives- Operation Linebacker and Operation Rio Grande. They would have authorized State law enforcement to crack down on illegals and put the Texas National Guard on the border. In both cases, he was shot down by the Feds (Bush Administration sadly) as being out of the State’s jurisdiction.
He isn’t a Tom Tancredo or Duncan Hunter on border issues, but he isn’t a Bush either.

Sorry, but until he does something at the state level that does not involve the Feds who he knows automatically will shoot him down, such as:
1. Implement E-Verify at the state level to prohibit employment in Texas:
2. Implement a similiar bill as AZ1070
3. Get rid of the Pro-Sanctuary Policing policies at the State Level for the DPS
4. Come out against Comprehensive Immigration Reform (which he as already previous come out in favor of)
Until he actually does something that is effective, all he is spouting is words, and couple that with his Pro-Open-Borders speeches and initiatives, and you have someone as equally bad as Bush was.
“He isnt a Tom Tancredo or Duncan Hunter on border issues, but he isnt a Bush either.”
Bush won, Tancredo and Hunter lost.
Important to consider.
