Bishop Curtis Guillory

Bishop Curtis Guillory of the Beaumont Diocese released a statement Thursday, June 21. The statement reads:

“My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

“An estimated 2,600 children have now been separated from their parents at the Texas/Mexico border. I am encouraged that the President has signed an executive order to end this practice that had been part of the Administration’s zero tolerance policy. 


Wednesday, May 30, at 8:27 p.m., Beaumont Drug Enforcement Agents (DEA) were conducting a surveillance investigation in search of an 18 wheeler believed to be carrying a large amount of drug money to the Texas/Mexico border. They located the truck in Lafayette, Louisiana and followed it into Texas. With the assistance of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Beaumont PD, Vidor PD, Port Arthur PD and Texas DPS, the truck was tracked into the Beaumont area and stopped on IH10 near the 848 mile marker.
