Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott is done playing games on the border and with this administration.
With the flow of illegals crossing the border not slowing down, even during the height of the summer heat, Abbott levied a charge the Biden administration will be forced to answer.
Abbott stated, “The Biden Administration is knowingly admitting hundreds of thousands of unauthorized migrants, many of whom the federal government knows full well have COVID-19.”
Stop the Hypocrisy
We are seeing some rather massive warning signs regarding mandates, restrictions, and possible shutdowns again.
However, the Biden administration is talking out of both sides of its mouth on this front.
While putting Americans on lockdown, illegals who are COVID positive are reportedly being released to the country’s interior.
Abbott addressed this very issue, stating, “While the Biden Administration is openly pondering looming shutdowns and mandates on U.S. citizens to control the spread of COVID-19, at the same time the Administration is knowingly worsening the problem by importing COVID-19 at extreme rates.”
After Biden’s Attorney General, Merrick Garland, filed a lawsuit to try to block the Governor’s order regarding the transportation of illegals, Abbott responded, “The Biden Administration has created a constitutional crisis between the federal government and the State of Texas.
“This stems from the Biden Administration’s refusal to enforce immigration laws and allow illegal immigrants with COVID-19 to enter our country. President Biden has a duty and a responsibility to protect and uphold our nation’s sovereignty, yet he has long-since abdicated his authority to do so.
“As the Governor of Texas, I have a responsibility to protect the people of Texas — a responsibility that grows more urgent by the day while the Biden Administration sits on the sidelines.
“I have the authority, and duty, under the constitutions of the United States and of Texas to protect Texans and our nation.
“I also have the authority under long-established emergency response laws to control the movement of people to better contain the spread of a disaster, such as those known to have COVID-19. My duty remains to the people of Texas, and I have no intention of abdicating that.”
The lawsuit will surely find its way to the Supreme Court, putting Trump’s nominees to yet another test regarding the federal government’s overreach.
