Greg Abbott Overrules Biden: Texas ‘Is Securing the Border’ in ‘Federal Government’s Absence’

Texas’s Republican Governor Greg Abbott has overruled Democrat President Joe Biden and announced that “the Lone Star State is securing the border” due to the “federal government’s absence.”

Gov. Abbott issued a statement where he blasted Biden’s inaction over the migrant crisis at the Southern Border.

“In the federal government’s absence, the Lone Star State is securing the border,” Abbott said.

“We’ve deployed the Texas National Guard & @TxDPS.

“We’re building a border wall & more.

“Texas continues to keep America safe.

“The Texas National Guard & @TxDPS continue to work together to secure the border & stop the smuggling of deadly drugs, weapons, & people into Texas.

“#OperationLoneStar has led to more than 17,400 criminal arrest, over 14,800 felony charges, & more.”

“Texas is building its own border wall,” Abbott added on Twitter.

As Slay News previously reported, Abbott also called out Joe Biden and New York’s Mayor Eric Adams after they tried to blame Texas for the issue:

“Mayor Adams’ problem is not with Texas.

“It is with President Biden’s refusal to stop this border crisis and secure our southern border.

President Biden’s open border policies created this ongoing humanitarian crisis, allowing record-high illegal crossings and deadly drugs like fentanyl to flood into our state.

“A crisis that has overrun and overwhelmed our border towns and communities across our state, whose requests for help have gone ignored and unanswered by the Biden Administration.

“I launched our border busing mission back in April to help our local partners, busing over 5,500 migrants to Washington, D.C. so far.

“Texas has not bused any migrants to New York.

“Instead, it is President Biden who has flown planeloads of migrants to New York.

“Mayor Adams should address his frustration with migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden.”

Abbott added on Twitter:

“Mayor Adams should address his frustration w/ migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden.

“I launched our border busing mission in April to help our local communities.

“Biden has flown planeloads of migrants to NY.

“The problem is not Texas. It’s Biden’s REFUSAL to secure our border.”
