Six months after Joe Biden’s hour-long visit to El Paso and after funneling more money to leftist organizations to help the invasion of the southern border, Joe Biden has choked federal law enforcement on the border and demanded a more oppressive gun grab of law-abiding Americans. Democrats in Texas are angry that their Governor, Republican Greg Abbott, is doing what little he can to stop some of the damage of the open borders- upon the American people.
And the threats to law enforcement are growing deadly, yet Biden wants more and more of these kinds of people into our country:
Biden visited the border area in early Jan. 2023. Local media reported at the time:
“Biden planned to spend a few hours in the city, currently the biggest corridor for illegal crossings, in large part to Nicaraguans fleeing repression, crime and poverty in their country. They are among migrants from four countries who are now subject to quick expulsion under new rules enacted by the Biden administration in the past week that drew strong criticism from immigration advocates.”
Local news reported at the time on Abbott’s reaction to the visit:
“All he’s going to do down there is rearrange the chairs on the deck of the Titanic. He’s not going to achieve any solutions that will make the border safer, more secure and stop illegal immigration,” he told Fox News Channel. Abbott was on hand as Biden got off Air Force One, giving the president a letter that outlined laws that the governor said would make a great difference, if enforced, in addressing the “chaos” at the border.
Abbott is also under pressure by Americans to be more firm with Biden. And some people want to see even more invasion.
Rueters reported on the action of the far left to STOP law enforcement from protecting the American people:
“A group of Democratic lawmakers from Texas on Tuesday urged the state’s Republican governor to halt his aggressive border security campaign after a report alleged that Texas authorities were ordered to deny water to migrants in extreme heat and to push migrant children back into the Rio Grande River.
The lawmakers, led by Representative Joaquin Castro, called on Democratic President Joe Biden to use federal authority to halt Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s border security efforts if Abbott refuses to stop the initiative, called Operation Lone Star.”
Castro said the Justice Department should complete an ongoing investigation into possible civil rights violations under the Texas operation and issue a cease-and-desist order, calling Abbott’s policies “brutal” and “inhumane.
In recent months, Texas National Guard troops have strung up razor wire to block migrants from crossing the Rio Grande from Mexico to Texas.
Last week, Texas authorities began installing a floating barrier in the middle of the river near Eagle Pass, Texas, sparking a diplomatic complaint from Mexico.”
The New York Post reported that the fight between Biden and Abbott is growing more intense:
According to media reports, Abbott is trying new ways to slow the invasion down:
“In the latest effort by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to secure his southern border, he installed a floating barrier across the Rio Grande river bordering Mexico which has Mexican officials worried about territorial boundaries,” Joe Mags reported, adding:
Under President Biden’s leadership, the southern border has been overrun with illegal immigrants crossing the border leaving many Republican Governors scrambling to secure the border on their own in an attempt to secure their states. Abbott has now decided to install floating barriers across the Rio Grande river to dissuade immigrants from crossing the dangerous river under Operation Lone Star.
Foreign Relations Secretary Alicia Bárcena has formally sent a letter to the United States with concerns of the border crossing into Mexican territory and will send an inspection team to provide an analysis.
“We are sending a mission, a territorial inspection to see where the buoys are located…to carry out this topographical survey to verify that they do not cross into Mexican territory,” the foreign secretary said during a press conference. The inspection would make sure the 1944 and 1970 treaties are not violated by impeding the flow of water in any way.
Abbott has previously stated that a large part of the deployment of floating barriers was to deter illegal immigrants from crossing mainly because of how dangerous it is to cross the river as many people drowned while trying to cross.
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador doesn’t approve of the barriers and demonstrated just how he felt about the entire Republican party in America. “We don’t have to do much, just tell our compatriots not to vote for the governor of Texas or for lawmakers of the Republican Party who support these measures,” he said.
Obrador also made his feelings known about Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis when he insisted, “Hopefully Hispanics in Florida will wake up and not give him one single vote, to not vote for those who persecute migrants, those who don’t respect migrants.”
Gov. Abbott issued an update to Operation Lone Star, claiming it has been a major success by filling “the dangerous gaps created by the Biden Administration’s refusal to secure the border. Every individual who is apprehended or arrested (roughly 400,000) and every ounce of drugs seized (an estimated 421 million lethal doses of fentanyl) would have otherwise made their way into communities across Texas and the nation due to President Joe Biden’s open border policies.”
