The Patrick Madrid Show: January 25, 2024 – Hour 1

Today on The Patrick Madrid Show, we tackled the escalating border crisis in Texas. Governor Abbott’s bold stand, provoked by an unconstitutional invasion, has drawn support from multiple states, highlighting the urgency of border control and raising questions about federal inaction. We explored concerns from San Antonio to ranches along the border – about public safety, the influx of young military-aged men, and the overarching impact on our communities. The dialogue cut deep into the Supreme Court’s role, sanctuary cities’ failures, and even a philosophical musing on our mortality with Lent around the corner. Today’s episode is brimming with passion, reality checks, and a reminder of the complex layers behind today’s headlines.
