What a fucking joke.
While at the border, Biden visited Doniphan Park in El Paso for a press briefing after viewing first hand a section of the border. He was caught off guard when asked by a reporter about a letter that Governor Greg Abbott had hand delivered to him. Biden safely responded, “I didn’t get a chance to read it yet. I haven’t read it yet. I’m —.”
Abbott has spent the last two years attempting to protect Texans from the massive influx of illegal immigrants crossing the border in what can only be described as an invasion. He launched Operation Lone Star in March of 2021 in an effort to stem the tide of illegal drugs and criminals flooding into Texas. This includes assistance from Texas Highway Patrol Troopers, Special Agents, Texas Rangers, Rotary and Fixed Winged Aircraft and Tactical Boat Teams, along with the Texas National Guard and local law enforcement, to secure the border.
Since its launch, Operation Lone Star has led to more than 340,000 illegal immigrant apprehensions and more than 23,000 criminal arrests, with more than 21,000 felony charges reported. In the fight against fentanyl, DPS has seized over 355 million lethal doses of fentanyl during this border mission.
Abbott’s letter to Biden was blunt in pure Texan style, starting with:
“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.”
After officially welcoming the president to the border, albeit halfway through his presidency, Abbott gave Biden five specific actions his administration can immediately take to secure the border and restore order to an out-of-control immigration crisis. That was of course after Biden finished “the photo-ops in a carefully stage-managed version of El Paso.”
……It is quite apparent that Biden does not want to solve the illegal immigration crisis, and outside of his photo ops and political rhetoric at the border, he’s perfectly fine with willfully ignoring his sworn Constitutional obligation to defend the States against invasion through faithful execution of federal laws. The Biden administration’s desire to “stop” the border crisis with toothless policies and a new immigration parole system is just another shining distraction to his real goal of destroying our nation’s sovereignty.
Instead of giving him a sanitized tour, they should have plopped his ass right down in the middle of the actual invasion:
They really cleaned up the filth before he arrived:
All that does is give him more of an excuse to ignore his border disaster and claim everything is “in control”.
The entire thing was a laughable stunt.
