Governor Greg Abbott’s bold stance against the Biden administration’s continued failure to secure the Texas border is exactly the kind of leadership we need. It’s utterly ridiculous how the Supreme Court decision allows Border Patrol agents to cut the state-installed razor wire at the border. Yet, Governor Abbott refuses to back down, showing true grit and determination in the face of federal overreach.
It’s appalling to see the Biden administration neglect its duty to protect our borders and states. This negligence has pushed Governor Abbott to rightfully declare an “invasion” and assert Texas’s constitutional right to self-defense. His argument that Texas has the legal authority to sidestep federal policies due to the federal government’s failure is not just legally sound, but it’s also a necessary step in preserving the sovereignty of Texas and the safety of its citizens.
The Biden administration’s weak and ineffective border policies have resulted in a crisis, with illegal immigrants flooding into our country unvetted and unchecked. Governor Abbott’s measures, including the installation of razor wire and the deployment of the Texas National Guard and Department of Public Safety, are critical actions to counteract the administration’s incompetence.
The situation at Shelby Park in Eagle Pass is a glaring example of the disastrous impact of the Biden administration’s policies. The DHS’s attempt to reclaim control over the area and the Supreme Court’s decision allowing Border Patrol agents to cut down state-installed barriers only exacerbate the problem, failing to address the root cause – the influx of illegal immigration.
Governor Abbott’s refusal to cave in to the federal government’s demands is commendable. His proactive approach in securing the border, despite opposition and legal challenges, demonstrates his commitment to the safety and security of Texas and its residents. It’s high time the Biden administration takes note of this crisis and starts enforcing effective border security measures. Until then, leaders like Governor Abbott will have to continue standing up against federal incompetence to protect their states.
