“Farmers and ranchers have long been used to illegal activity, but they have reached a point where they are no longer sustainable and we need the help of the federal government,” he said.
He announced the lawsuit last week as part of the Texas Defense Task Force, which was appointed by Bush to identify the federal handover and address perceived threats to the Texan economy.

“I think my message to the people who are not in Texas is to learn more about the cost and burden we carry because people are tired of it and want help from their national government,” Bush said.
