LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - She still has to get through the primary, but Kay Bailey Hutchison unveiled a major policy she wants to start if she's elected governor.

In Longview Tuesday, Senator Hutchison detailed her plan for border security. Specifically, she wants to do away with so-called "sanctuary cities" for illegal immigrants. Hutchison also wants to increase border security by allowing officers to keep their insurance coverage across county lines and establishing a volunteer border force.

"We have found time and time again, that people who are trained and alert, can avoid terrorist attacks, as we have seen on airplanes, just as recently as Christmas Day," said Hutchison. "Citizens and people who've had law enforcement experience can be very effective with this."

Senator Hutchison will take part in the first debate of the Republican Primary on Thursday. We will air the full debate on digital channel 7.2 , or if you live in Tyler and Longview, channel 247.
