Illegal Immigrants

(RepublicanWire.org) – In the Texas tradition of showdowns, Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott last week told the federal government that he was ready, willing and able to bus every illegal immigrant dropped in a Texas town straight to Washington, D.C.

Somebody blinked, and it was not Abbott, according to new reports.

Late last week, the Texas Division of Emergency Management sent buses to the communities that have been targeted by the Biden administration as dropping-off points for illegal immigrants once border facilities are overwhelmed.

Officials found something had changed since Abbott sounded off.

“In the last 24 hours, TDEM has dispatched buses to areas where communities have expressed concerns about the federal government dropping off migrants and has the capability to send as many as is necessary to fulfill the requests from mayors and county judges,” said Seth Christensen, chief of media and communications for TDEM, according to the Daily Mail.

“From the Rio Grande Valley to Terrell County, a large majority of the communities that originally reached out for support through this operation have now said that the federal government has stopped dropping migrants in their towns since the governor’s announcement on Wednesday,” he said.

That represented a major difference from the aftermath of Abbott’s announcement last week when he said, “Overnight there were multiple communities in the Rio Grande Valley asking us to provide buses for them, maybe even planes.”

Although the legal foundation of Abbott’s order is uncertain, because the federal government has supreme authority in immigration matters, the value of the plan will be understood once Title 42 expires, according to Fox News.

Title 42 is a public health law that allowed immigration officials to turn back many illegal immigrants on the grounds that they could spread COVID-19 into the U.S. The Biden administration has said it will end enforcement of Title 42 on May 23, leading many to predict even more massive waves of illegal immigrants to spill over the border into America.

“I think it’s going to coincide very much with what’s going on with Title 42 when Biden lets a couple million more people cross over the border — not let them, but invites them,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said, according to Fox.

Paxton said Abbott’s plan is not gesture or gimmick, but a serious response to a difficult situation the Biden administration has allowed to grow worse.

“The governor has a lot to deal with as it relates to the border,” Paxton said. “And he’s got a federal government that is betraying the state of Texas, betraying the American people, and I think (Gov. Abbott) is just trying to figure out what he can do to protect the people of Texas.”

On Monday, Abbott met with the Texas Border Sheriffs Coalition in El Paso and indicated he has no plans to back down.

“Texans demand and deserve an aggressive, comprehensive strategy to secure our border — not President Biden’s lackluster leadership,” Abbott said in a statement.

“As the federal government continues to roll back commonsense policies that once kept our communities safe, our local law enforcement has stepped up to protect Texans from dangerous criminals, deadly drugs and illegal contraband flooding into the Lone Star State.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – It’s been a while since we’ve talked about the border. New year, new approach, right? Wrong. Kamala Harris decided that her resolution is to sit back and do the same thing she did all throughout 2021. And, as a result, the problem at the border only gets worse.

While Greg Abbott, Texas’s governor, is doing all he can to address the problem, it’s not enough. He needs the support of the federal government, which he’s not getting. In fact, the Biden administration continues to block him with every piece of legislation that he passes to try to protect the state.

Meanwhile, over 2200 illegal immigrants shimmied their way across the southern border over the New Year’s weekend so that they could claim their grab bag of liberal prizes. You know, free money, voting rights, and anything else that the individual Democratic cities or states may be handing out, too.

They made it over just in time to crack open a bottle of champagne and ring in the New Year while laughing at how ridiculous the immigration laws are in the U.S.

And it is laughable. Why do we even have immigration laws if the Biden administration is just going to ignore them?

The Del Rio Sector Border Patrol has already apprehended 2200 migrants in the New Year. Jason D. Owens, a Chief Patrol Agent, tweeted that “2022 is off & running” with not only 2200 migrants arrested after crossing the border illegally but also seven attempts of human smuggling stopped and 12 migrants having to be rescued.

It’s proof that the border has to be properly secured. And those in other countries have to be told that they cannot come without fear of being apprehended and sent back to their countries of origin. A bland “Don’t come here” from Biden or Harris is not going to be enough.

And one story that was shared by Owens was a little girl who made the journey all by herself. He shared a picture of her coloring with one of the border patrol agents with the comment that “Ask HER what she thinks of the people in green.” He went on to share a message that goes against how the liberals want to portray the U.S. Border Patrol agents, “weak, agenda-driven narratives cannot compete with the facts. These are the men & women of the USBP. See them through her eyes.”

The Biden administration has to stop making Border Patrol look like they are the enemies. USBP is doing its job because of immigration laws. What are we supposed to do with 2200 more illegal immigrants in the country when we cannot possibly support the millions that entered last year?

The illegal immigrants work for less money – and they continue to leech off of our government programs. They’re the ones breaking the economy. And the Biden administration knows this, yet they’re still content to welcome everyone.

2022 needs to be a new approach. We tried it their way in 2021 and look where that got us? If Kamala Harris can’t do her job and secure the border once and for all, she should be impeached. And while we’re on the subject, we might as well impeach Joe Biden, too. They’re both lousy leaders – and if we don’t do something quickly, a lot more illegal immigrants will find their way into our country.
