Texas most wanted criminal illegal immigrants list

Gov. Greg Abbott in conjunction with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has released a top 10 “Most Wanted Criminal Illegal Immigrants List.”

“When President Joe Biden took office, he dismantled every effective border policy his predecessor put into place,” said Abbott in a press release.

“As a result, we have seen record high levels of illegal immigration, including dangerous criminals and terrorists who are a threat to the public safety of our state and our nation. These illegal immigrants will now be spotlighted on our 10 Most Wanted Criminal Illegal Immigrants List.”

Abbott added, “Texas is a law-and-order state, and with the help of our fellow Texans, we will ensure that the illegal immigrants on this list are taken off our streets and put behind bars to keep our communities safe. Texas will continue to take unprecedented action to protect Texans and our state from President Biden’s border crisis.”

Biden recently announced that he will be issuing an executive order (EO) to “bar migrants who cross our Southern border unlawfully from receiving asylum.”

America First Legal highlighted that the EO sets a threshold for illegal immigration, triggered when there are 2,500 or more daily encounters over a seven-day period. AFL equates this to “roughly 76,041 encounters each month,” or over 900,000 people per year.

Eight of the 10 criminal illegal immigrants on the list are charged with sexual assault — many of which were directed toward a child.

“Criminals from around the world who enter the United States illegally and commit crimes in Texas are a threat to public safety,” said DPS Director Col. Steve McCraw.

“Individuals on Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Criminal Illegal Immigrants List are likely to commit other crimes, and DPS is enlisting the public’s help in apprehending these offenders before they commit additional crimes. I thank Governor Abbott and Texas Crime Stoppers for their partnership in launching this important program.”

The House Committee on Homeland Security released a fact sheet on the growing crisis of illegal immigration on the southern border. It details the almost 180,000 encounters by U.S. Customs and Border Protection so far this year and more than 7.8 million encounters at the southern border since Biden took office. 

The “known gotaways” who escaped enforcement or custody is nearly two million. Former Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol Raul Ortiz said during a committee testimony in March 2023 that the total number of gotaways could be undercounted by as much as 20 percent.
