Recently, it was announced that Joe Biden would be sending an additional 1,500 troops to the border.
They won’t actually be securing the border, however, as they are being given support roles as clerks, processors, and taxicab drivers for illegal immigrants.
Governor Abbott, who has activated Texas National Guard members to actually secure the border, went ballistic on Biden for the sleight of hand to make it appear he is actually doing something about the crisis at the border, reports The Hill.
Cleaning Up Joe’s Mess
Governor Abbott recently went on Fox News to rail against Biden’s border policies compared to what was happening when Trump was in office.
Abbott stated, "Only when Biden came in and eliminated all those [Trump-era] policies and put out a welcome mat to the entire world that the border is now open, that we suddenly have the chaos that’s caused solely by policies put into place by Joe Biden."
He continued, "President Trump sent soldiers to the border to secure the border. President Biden is sending 1,500 quote soldiers to do paperwork. That is not going to secure the border. We need 15,000 or 150,000 to secure the border because of the open border policies of the Biden administration."
When Biden announced that troops would be headed to the border, liberals and Democrats went nuts, so the White House cleared that up really quickly.
Karine Jean-Pierre stated that the additional troops "will not be performing law enforcement functions or interacting with immigrants, or migrants. This will free up Border Patrol agents to perform their critical law enforcement duties" reports Fox News.
Even though this administration is seeing more than two million crossings in each of its first two years in office, Secretary Mayorkas has the audacity to stand in front of the cameras and say, "The border is not open, it has not been open, and it will not be open subsequent to May 11."
Well, if that is what is coming across with a closed border, I would hate to see what happens when it is open!
Sadly, this is far from the worst of it, as Title 42 expires on Thursday.
