Greg Abbott Gives Biden Plan to Secure Border: ‘Under Your Watch, America Suffering Worst Illegal Immigration in History’

Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott has called on Joe Biden to do his job after the Democrat president finally made his way down to the southern border.

Gov. Abbott handed Biden a letter when he met him which includes a detailed blueprint on how to secure the border.

In the letter, Abbott slammed Biden for allowing America to suffer “the worst illegal immigration in the history of our country,” which the governor noted happened “under your watch.

“Today, I met with President Biden during his first visit to the border,” Abbott said after Biden’s brief visit to the border.

“I hand-delivered a letter asking him to do his constitutional duty to secure our border and keep Texans — and Americans — safe.”

Abbott told reporters Biden’s plan will fall short.

“Those changes will probably do nothing more than entice more illegal immigration,” Abbott said.

“You have to implement the policies in my letter to stop illegal immigration and to begin the process he wants to work on.”

The letter says:

“Your visit to our southern border with Mexico today is $20 billion too little and two years too late.

“Moreover, your visit avoids the sites where mass illegal immigration occurs and sidesteps the thousands of angry Texas property owners whose lives have been destroyed by your border policies.

“Even the city you visit has been sanitized of the migrant camps which had overrun downtown El Paso because your Administration wants to shield you from the chaos that Texans experience on a daily basis.

“This chaos is the direct result of your failure to enforce the immigration laws that Congress enacted.

“Under President Trump, the federal government achieved historically low levels of illegal immigration.

“Under your watch, by contrast, America is suffering the worst illegal immigration in the history of our country.

“Your open-border policies have emboldened the cartels, who grow wealthy by trafficking deadly fentanyl and even human beings.

“Texans are paying an especially high price for your failure, sometimes with their very lives, as local leaders from your own party will tell you if given the chance.

“All of this is happening because you have violated your constitutional obligation to defend the States against invasion through faithful execution of federal laws.

“Halfway through your presidency, though, I can finally welcome you to the border.

“When you finish the photo-ops in a carefully stage-managed version of El Paso, you have a job to do:

“You must comply with the many statutes mandating that various categories of aliens ‘shall’ be detained, and end the practice of unlawfully paroling aliens en masse.

“You must stop sandbagging the implementation of the Remain-in-Mexico policy and Title 42 expulsions, and fully enforce those measures as the federal courts have ordered you to do.

“You must aggressively prosecute illegal entry between ports of entry, and allow ICE to remove illegal immigrants in accordance with existing federal laws.

“You must immediately resume construction of the border wall in the State of Texas using the billions of dollars Congress has appropriated for that purpose.

“You must designate the Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations.

“On behalf of all Americans, I implore you: Secure our border by enforcing Congress’s immigration laws.”
