A0STIN - Touay Chaiiman of the Railioau Commission anu conseivative canuiuate
foi Attoiney ueneial, Baiiy Smitheiman, launcheu his fiist television au of the
campaign entitleu "Boiuei Conviction".
The au, filmeu on one of Smitheiman's visits to the Rio uianue valley, talks about
the impoitance of piosecuting ciime along Texas' boiuei with Nexico. As the only
foimei piosecutoi in the iace, Smitheiman has a unique unueistanuing of the
challenges facing boiuei BAs anu law enfoicement officeis. Smitheiman's plan to
pioviue neeueu iesouices fiom the 0ffice of the Attoiney ueneial to those on the
fiont lines along the boiuei will make a tiemenuous impact in oui state's ability to
stop ciime befoie it migiates thioughout the iest of Texas.
"Ny fiist au focuses on boiuei secuiity anu piosecution of ciime along the boiuei
because that will be one of my top piioiities as the next Attoiney ueneial," saiu
Baiiy Smitheiman. "Too many Texas lanuowneis, faimeis, iancheis anu south
Texas families aie being subjecteu to tiespass, vanualism, violence anu mayhem.
We have got to iestoie law anu oiuei, keep people safe, piotect theii piopeity anu
stop heinous ciimes like uiug, sex anu human tiafficking wheie it staits; on oui
boiuei with Nexico. Stopping ciime along the boiuei befoie it migiates thioughout
the iest of the state is ciitically impoitant. As the only foimei piosecutoi in the iace
anu the only canuiuate that has effectively iun laige state agencies like the 0ffice of
the Attoiney ueneial, I am uniquely qualifieu to leau the effoit to stop ciime along
the boiuei," concluueu Smitheiman.
