MORE - House GOP Unveils Bill To Give Funding To Border States That Want To Continue Building Wall
Biden is paying contractors $2 billion NOT to build the wall. In the meantime, CBP encountered a 20-year high of illegal migrants crossing our border & confiscated 508 pounds of fentanyl last month alone. Stop wasting tax dollars to watch the materials & just finish the wall.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has launched the construction of his state’s own fence along the southern border in an effort to slow the border crisis.
Asked what a chain link fence is going to stop? Texas [Department of Public Safety] says the idea is to cut the feds out of the equation. No trespass signs allow them to arrest on local charges. Instead of calling Border Patrol, they will take migrants to jail for violating Texas law. MORE
Ron DeSantis visits Texas border
Gov. DeSantis took aim at the ridiculousness of the Biden administration when it comes to their COVID policies:
"I got a little bit perturbed when I was at the southern border, when I started thinking about if you wanted to fly from Brazil or you wanted to do certain travel, the way you would be treated by the federal government under the auspices of COVID mitigation.
Some people wouldn’t even be allowed to come. A lot of these flights aren’t even allowed. If you wanted to go on a cruise ship, the federal government doesn’t want you except under extreme circumstances. So they’re very, very rigorous with lawful commercial activity in travel.
But if you just want to hopscotch across that border, they don’t care about COVID. They’re letting you straight in. They’re throwing you on a bus and they’re sending you all over the fruited plain in this country. So, I don’t understand how you square that.
If you’re saying that cruises have to go through all of these procedures because of COVID, wouldn’t you want people coming from a hundred different countries to just not be able to pour in the country effectively, with very little pushback?
So I think it’s a huge, huge problem and the idea that we would treat American citizens and their right to travel with more disfavor than we’re treating foreign nationals illegally entering our country – that didn’t sit well with me and I was really frustrated to see that." MORE
