GOP Governors Come Out To Support Texas Shutting Down The Border [See Who!]


Biden and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott continue to have a standoff over the southern border’s immigration crisis.

Gov. Abbott has seized control of Shelby Park near Eagle Pass, a popular location for illegal immigrants to cross the border.

Gov. Abbott has forced all federal agents out in his seizure of the location.

The move has caused multiple lawsuits filed by the Biden administration against Gov. Abbott.

The folks at Fox News share more on this developing story:

As Texas Gov. Greg Abbott continues to tout the state’s right to self-defend itself from a migrant invasion, some Democratic lawmakers are calling on President Biden to take control of the state’s National Guard.

Abbott issued a lengthy statement Wednesday, saying the federal government broke the compact between the U.S. and the individual states.

“The Executive Branch of the United States has a constitutional duty to enforce federal laws protecting states, including immigration laws on the books right now,” Abbott said. “President Biden has refused to enforce those laws and has even violated them.”

Abbott is fighting multiple legal battles with the Biden administration, which has threatened legal action over Texas’ seizure of Shelby Park near Eagle Pass. Texas has also filed lawsuits against the administration, which cut razor wire set up by the state on the Rio Grande to prevent migrants from illegally crossing into Texas, as well as the establishment of buoys on the river.

While Abbott issues statements about the Biden administration overstepping its authority, Democratic lawmakers like Rep. Greg Casar, D-Texas, is accusing the governor of taking a play out of former President Trump’s playbook.

“Greg Abbott has continued to use political stunts and inflammatory language to advance his own agenda, violating the Constitution and endangering both U.S. citizens and asylum seekers,” Casar posted on X. “Abbott is following the Donald Trump playbook: making immigration harder and more dangerous, so asylum seekers are pushed into the hands of cartels and the system remains broken.”

While Biden and Democrats continue to rage over Gov. Abbott’s move to secure the border.

Many Republicans have come out to support the Governor in finally securing our border.

Something that Biden has willingly neglected.

Numerous Republican governors have taken to X to support Gov. Abbott.

Montana’s Governor Greg Gianforte’s response:

Governor @GregAbbott_TX is doing what @POTUS won’t.

By refusing to act, President Biden is inviting cartels, illegal drugs, and human trafficking into the United States.

We must secure the southern border.

Virginia’s Governor Glenn Youngkin’s reaction:

Virginia stands with Texas.
@GregAbbott_TX is doing the job Joe Biden and his border czar refuse to do to secure our border.
The Biden administration has turned every state into a border state. We must stop the flow of fentanyl, save lives, and secure our southern border.

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt’s reaction:

Oklahoma stands with Texas.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s reaction:

.@GregAbbott_TX is exactly right to invoke Texas’ constitutional authority to defend itself.
The Biden Administration has created a national security crisis and put Americans in danger. Their failure is an unconstitutional dereliction of duty.
South Dakota has been proud to help Gov. Abbott’s efforts to secure our border.

And lastly, Flordia Governor Ron DeSantis’ response:

If the Constitution really made states powerless to defend themselves against an invasion, it wouldn’t have been ratified in the first place and Texas would have never joined the union when it did.

TX is upholding the law while Biden is flouting it.

FL will keep assisting Texas with personnel and assets.

This is a fantastic event we see unfolding in our nation.

Texas has had a long history of independence and standing up to the federal government.

They are right in their decision to protect their border, and it is a shame that the alleged President has done next to nothing to secure the border.
