Texas Governor Greg Abbott is set to use his executive privilege to override Joe Biden at the southern border.
Good for him.
Joe Biden has been absolutely derelict in his responsibility to protect the border. He has looked the other way for two years as millions of people have illegally crossed our border.
For the First Time In History, Abbott Uses Executive Order To Override Biden’s Border Policies
Between President Joe Biden’s ignorance and Republican governors sending illegal migrants to Democrat-run cities, southern states are seeing no relief at the border as Biden continues to ignore the crisis.
However, Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) is holding the president accountable for his lack of responsibility.
In a letter to the White House, Abbott declared an “invasion” at the southern border, arguing the need for more aggressive efforts to tackle illegal immigration.
“Your inaction has led to catastrophic consequences. Under your watch, America is suffering the highest volume of illegal immigration in the history of our country,” Abbott said in his letter.
Accusing the Biden Administration of blatantly ignoring the crisis, Abbott said that the U.S.- Mexico border is among the deadliest in the world.
“This past year, more than 2 million immigrants tried to enter the country illegally, coming from more than 100 countries across the globe… worse yet, your failed border policies recently prompted a United Nations agency to declare that the border between the United States and Mexico is the deadliest land crossing in the world,” Abbott wrote.
This is the first time in modern history that a state has claimed the federal government has failed to protect citizens.
Abbott is being forced to do this by Biden’s inaction.
Today I wrote Pres. Biden to explain why Texas is invoking Art. 1 Sec. 10 of the Constitution to respond to the invasion caused by Biden's open border policies.
Texas is prioritizing repelling & returning immigrants who enter illegally.

This is one of the things Biden deserves to be impeached for.
