Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is continuing to highlight the border crisis on the Texas-Mexico border, and now he is wanting to hear from other state attorneys general about how illegal immigration is impacting their state while highlighting what is actually happening along the border.

In an announcement on Wednesday, Paxton will be hosting a two-day border summit for twelve state attorneys generals. The elected officials will travel to McAllen, Weslaco, Edinburg, and Rio Grande City during the summit to witness how illegal immigration has impacted those cities, the state of Texas, and beyond.

The twelve attorneys general will participate in meetings with top officials from the United States Customs and Border Protection, United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety. These round table meetings are meant to spread information about what people are seeing on the ground and attempts to stop the crisis along the border.

The twelve attorneys general will also participate in a boat tour on the Rio Grande River and tour the border wall.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said those attending understand that the border crisis is a crisis for all states according to a press release.

“Ill-conceived immigration policies created by the Biden Administration have wreaked havoc on our communities and placed a massive burden on our country, “Attorney General Paxton said. “I want to thank our local, state and federal law enforcement officials and my fellow attorneys general, who attended the summit, for making this issue one of their top priorities. This affects them too. Every state in the country is a border state. I will not allow this looming crisis on the border to continue to bring violence, drug cartels, and human trafficking to our communities.”

The Border Summit begins on Thursday, January 27 and ends on Friday.

I'm always down for a good brain challenge. This one however got the best of me.
It's always a fun time looking up address or cities and seeing them from a satellite point of view. You start pointing out landmarks and things you recognize.

One thing you don't account for however is something looking bigger or smaller than you seemed to think it was. So we started grabbing a bunch of these satellite pictures of cities and towns around Amarillo.

As we looked at them, we thought to ourselves, "how fun would this be to actually have to GUESS what these places are?". So away we went.
