Texas National Guard Soldier arrested for attempting to smuggle illegal alien

| April 5, 2024

Savion Amari Donovan Johnson, 26, was deployed to Eagle Pass for Operation Lone Star. However, instead of strictly doing his part to assist with controlling illegal immigration across the border, he “went to the dark side.” He apparently was promised $5,000 or $6,000 for the smuggle operation. He used a government vehicle for the task.

From American Military News:

According to NewsNation, Johnson had been deployed to Eagle Pass under Republican Governor Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star. The outlet reported that Johnson, who was allegedly promised $5,000 or $6,000 for smuggling the illegal immigrant, admitted that he had a weapon inside his government vehicle.

Following Sunday’s incident, Abbott Press Secretary Andrew Mahaleris told Fox News, “If the allegations are true, the accused is a traitor and criminal.”

“We have zero tolerance for Texans who violate laws that directly contradict the mission we are seeking to achieve,” the Abbott spokesman added. “The accused’s illegal smuggling may subject him to a mandatory minimum prison sentence of at least 10 years. He deserves more.”

Ali Bradley, a NewsNation correspondent, shared a video on X, formerly Twitter, showing law enforcement officers arresting and searching Johnson after Sunday’s vehicle chase.

Somebody’s a-gonna straighten his ass out while he’s in lockup ifyaknowhutimean. “Savion Amari Donovan Johnson”, hmmm, that name don’t sound very WASP to me, maybe part of his unit’s DEI?


What people won’t do for a buck or 2. The big question is, who was he transporting. Why was that individual worth this much money unless it was to thin out law enforcement thinner than what it was.

Makes you wonder what came across while eyes were focused over here instead of over there.

If he is guilty of transporting illegal immigrants, he should be fast tracked for a senior position in Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security.

Even though it’s a state crime he violated, I can still see the Dementia-in-Chief trying to pardon him.

“The accused’s illegal smuggling may subject him to a mandatory minimum prison sentence of at least 10 years. He deserves more.”

I concur. Can we please return to the time when we used to hang traitors?


This please.


The title of that image should read “low bridge ahead”

Amateur Historian

Heh, if only.


Rayycisss 😏🙄


This would be acceptable as well. Just sayin.


It isn’t a deployment until Joe has trafficked at least one human.



U-turn at a highway check point
(there are MANY in south Texas)
is not the wise move.
