President Joe Biden is getting called on the carpet by the Republican Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott.
According to a report from Breitbart News, Gov. Abbott “met on Saturday with a contingent of Texas sheriffs to discuss their concerns about the current border crisis’s impact on counties within the state.” According to Abbott, the necessity of such workshops is caused by Biden’s “abandonment of efforts to enforce immigration laws that were passed by the United States Congress.”
“The bottom line is, because of the current administration’s complete abandonment of enforcing the laws passed that were passed by the United States Congress, concerning immigration, there is an unprecedented increase in people coming across the border,” said Abbott. He continued, “Even though the federal government may have abandoned their responsibility, we have not.”
As Breitbart noted, Gov. Abbott specifically named Biden:
President Biden’s open border policies have led to a disaster on our border, and the State of Texas is stepping up in the federal government’s absence to keep our communities safe. Our efforts would not be possible without our partnership with local law enforcement. With their support, we are working tirelessly to stop the influx of unlawful immigrants and prevent the smuggling of contraband into the state.
