Standoff between the US gov't and Texas — Gov. Abbott: 'See You in Court!'

Standoff between the US gov't and Texas — Gov. Abbott: 'See You in Court!'

The southern border crisis is escalating, and Texas Governor Greg Abbott isn’t backing down despite the DOJ’s confirmation that it intends to pursue legal action against him.

The DOJ’s Environment and Natural Resources division has claimed the construction of a floating barrier in the Rio Grande river is unlawful and violates section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act.

However, Abbott is firm in his stance that this border crisis is President Biden’s fault.

“Texas Has Seized More Than 422 Million Lethal Doses of Fentanyl Since 2021.” Abbott tweeted.

“More than enough to kill all Americans,” he continued, adding, “We have also made 394,200 illegal-immigrant apprehensions and 31,300 criminal arrests. All because Biden is not doing his job.”

In a follow-up tweet, Abbott said he will see Biden in court and that the president must now face the consequences because under Biden’s policies, the U.N. declared the U.S.-Mexico border the deadliest border crossing in the world.

“Which you would think would be a great reason to not be encouraging people to make the dangerous journey,” comments Sara Gonzales.

While the Democratic Party likes to pat itself on the back as the “compassionate” one, Gonzales doesn’t find this very “compassionate.”

“I don’t find it to be compassionate to encourage people to make a dangerous journey, to encourage people to traffic their children, to encourage people to give their children to coyotes who can make money off of it. Their children are being raped the whole way,” she says.

BlazeTV contributor Jaco Booyens believes we need “real immigration policy” in order to stop this.

“It cost me $100,000 in 10 years to become a citizen. That’s not right either,” Booyens says.

“I do my fair share here, so we need reform. We’ve never been interested in reforming immigration,” he adds.
