Gov Abbott All Fed-Up: Writes His Own Executive Orders, Telling Biden Where To Shove It
"Biden refuses to do his job!" Texas Governor Greg Abbott explained as he issued his own executive orders to protect the US border—At least in his state. Those orders allow the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to capture illegals and drag them back to the border. Unfortunately, without Biden's support, Abbott's task force will not be able to take the illegals into Mexico but it will clear them out of the cities and towns.
It comes at a time of historic migrant encounters at the border. There were more than 239,000 migrant encounters in May alone, and Abbott said that there were 5,000 migrant apprehensions in Texas alone over Independence Day weekend.
"While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border," Abbott said in a statement. "The cartels have become emboldened and enriched by President Biden's open border policies, smuggling in record numbers of people, weapons, and deadly drugs like fentanyl."
"I have authorized the Texas National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety to begin returning illegal immigrants to the border to stop this criminal enterprise endangering our communities," Abbott said. "As the challenges on the border continue to increase, Texas will continue to take action to address those challenges caused by the Biden Administration."
Abbott said in an exclusive interview on "Sunday Morning Futures" that the "unprecedented" and "overwhelming" situation is a result of President Biden eliminating all the policies former President Trump put in place.
"These counties are dealing with something that's completely unprecedented," Abbott said on Sunday, noting that "it was just two years ago we had the lowest number of people coming across the border and apprehensions under President Trump."
