Texas Governor Makes D.C. Power Move

The border crisis continues to be a major concern for millions of Americans. It is a problem that could have been entirely avoided—had President Biden complied with U.S. immigration law. The battle continued to rage in the court.

But it is clear the situation has gotten no better in recent months.

Texas has been working to secure it large border with Mexico. President Biden has opposed the state’s efforts, even tearing down barriers it has erected. Recently, Gov. Abbott met with Republican Speaker Mike Johnson. And he dropped this demand on the House leader.

From The Post Millennial:
On Thursday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott met with House Speaker Mike Johnson in Austin to discuss critical matters pertaining to the historic crisis at the US southern border and the disastrous impact President Biden’s open-border policies have had on the state.

Gov. Abbott urged Speaker Johnson to pass border security measures and lamented about Congress’s inability to do so. The Republican governor also touted the successes of the state’s comprehensive border security efforts through Operation Lone Star and asked Johnson to support the state’s fight against the Biden administration’s efforts to thwart Texas’s efforts to secure the border.

Texas Gov. Abbott met with Speaker Johnson to discuss the ongoing border crisis. He called on Congress to do something about the situation—including passing security measures to end the flood of migrants entering the country.

Since Biden entered office, over 7 million illegal aliens have crossed the border. Biden’s administration has refused to deport any of them. Instead, it has spent tax dollars to move migrants across the country, provide housing and other resources, and even give them jobs.

The migrant crisis has further harmed Americans struggling with inflation and high energy prices. Biden’s migrants force Americans to compete for housing, jobs, medical care, and education for their children. Democrats in blue cities seem unconcerned for the welfare of Americans, as they roll out benefits for these “newcomers.”

Critics, including Elon Musk, accuse Democrats of wanting the border crisis. They claim Biden is welcoming illegals, to exploit them for cheap labor and votes. Democrats have denied these charges, yet their policies seem to prove them.

It is unknown what Speaker Johnson intends to do about the crisis. Congress seems slow to act on the border. Biden has refused to do anything, only demanding more money for other issues.

Texas has been somewhat successful in discouraging immigration into its state. But when migrants can get in through California or Arizona, the problem is in no way solved.

Key Takeaways:

  • Abbott met with Speaker Johnson to discuss the border crisis.
  • Abbott urged Congress to take action to secure the border.
  • Under President Biden, over 7 million migrants have illegally entered the country.
