Governors and Lawmakers Rally Behind Texas in Border Dispute with Biden Administration.
Several states have committed to assist Texas with its border issue, despite Biden's administration's decision to remove the razor wire in Shelby Park. Could this cause fury in Washington?
As the Biden administration continues to face criticism for its handling of the border crisis, a growing number of governors and lawmakers have expressed their solidarity with Texas, which has taken measures to secure its own border against illegal immigration.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has been leading the charge in defending the state’s sovereignty and right to protect its citizens from the influx of migrants crossing the southern border. Abbott has ordered the installation of razor wire along the border, deployed the Texas National Guard, and declared a state of disaster in 34 counties.
Abbott has also faced legal challenges from the Biden administration, which has sued Texas over its border policies and ordered the removal of the razor wire. However, Abbott has vowed to fight back, saying that Texas has the constitutional authority to defend itself from invasion.
In response, Abbott has received support from several governors and lawmakers, who have praised his leadership and courage in standing up to the federal government. Some of the governors who have pledged to stand with Texas include:
Ron DeSantis of Florida, who said that “Texas is doing what the federal government should be doing.” Spencer Cox of Utah, who called the border situation “a national security issue” and “a common sense issue.” Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma, who shared a video of the Texas National Guard on social media and announced, “Oklahoma stands with Texas.” Jim Justice of West Virginia, who said that “West Virginia stands with Texas and Governor Abbott in their efforts to secure our southern border and protect Americans.” Bill Lee of Tennessee, who said that “Tennessee stands with Texas in their fight to secure the border and keep Americans safe.” Jim Pillen of Nebraska, who said that “Nebraska stands with Texas and Governor Abbott as they work to secure our southern border.” Doug Burgum of North Dakota, who said that “North Dakota stands with Texas and Governor Abbott as they take action to secure our southern border and uphold the rule of law.” Glenn Youngkin of Virginia, who said that “Virginia stands with Texas and Governor Abbott as they work to secure our southern border and protect our communities.” Brian Kemp of Georgia, who said that “Georgia stands with Texas in defending its own border” and that the southern border is “in crisis” due to the Biden administration’s failure to “do their job.” Greg Gianforte of Montana, who said that “Montana stands with Texas and Governor Abbott as they work to secure our southern border and stop the flow of illegal drugs and human trafficking.” In addition to the governors, several lawmakers have also voiced their support for Texas, such as Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, who said that “Ohio stands with Texas in their efforts to secure our border and protect our citizens.” Senators John Barrasso and Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming also issued a joint statement, saying that “Wyoming stands with Texas and Governor Abbott as they work to secure our southern border and stop the humanitarian crisis created by the Biden administration.”
Speaker of the House Mike Johnson also expressed his support for Texas, saying that “I stand with Governor Abbott. The House will do everything in its power to back him up. The next step: holding Secretary Mayorkas accountable.”
The Republican governors and lawmakers have also urged the Biden administration to take action to address the border crisis, which has seen a record number of migrant encounters, drug seizures, and human trafficking cases. They have also called for the restoration of the Trump-era policies that were effective in deterring illegal immigration, such as the Remain in Mexico program and the border wall construction.
