I have to hand it to Governor Abbott of Texas.
The man is not afraid to look Biden in the face and tell him off.
Abbott greeted Joe Biden when he landed, then he slapped a letter in his hand to let him know what he thinks of Biden's border policies and lack of effort to clean the situation up.
Show and Tell
I had two fears about Biden's border visit.
The first was that he would visit a city or station that was not seeing any action.
That fear was belayed when it was announced that Biden was going to El Paso, TX, a city seeing roughly 2,000 migrants a day.
The second was that the scene would be sanitized before Biden ever showed up, and that one, sadly, became a reality.
Why El Paso allowed its streets to be cleared is beyond me. The city had a chance to show the entire country what Biden has done to it, and they instead scrubbed the streets clean of any trace of migrants before Biden arrived.
Mind you, the probably stuffed them all into a holding facility and had them sleeping on top of each other, but that was not Joe's concern.
Abbott was livid, stating, "Even the city you visit has been sanitized of the migrant camps which had overrun downtown El Paso because your administration wants to shield you from the chaos that Texans experience on a daily basis."
Abbott continued, "Your open-border policies have emboldened the cartels, who grow wealthy by trafficking deadly fentanyl and even human beings. Texans are paying an especially high price for your failure, sometimes with their very lives, as local leaders from your own party will tell you if given the chance."
Hand-delivered a letter to President Biden today during his first visit to the border.
His trip is $20 billion too little & 2 years too late.

All Abbott wants is for current immigration laws to be enforced. He would also like cartels to be designated as terrorist organizations, but I doubt either will happen anytime soon.
The fact that El Paso was sanitized for Biden's visit is just proof this administration has no intention of letting the American people see what is really happening at the border.
