These mayors think their cities have it bad. Imagine what the small border towns deal with on a daily basis.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent an invitation to New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser to the border to witness the border crisis in person.
Abbott welcomed Adams and Bowser’s “recent interest” in the border crisis since the Biden administration has shown no interest in solving the problem.
“As Governor, I invite you to visit our border region to see firsthand the dire situation that only grows more urgent with each passing day, and to meet with the local officials, who like yourselves, realize this matter deserves immediate federal action,” wrote Abbott. “I also ask you to join me in requesting President Biden secure the border and put an end to this disastrous crisis.”
Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey bus illegal immigrants to DC because Bowser made it a sanctuary state.
Bowser used strong language against Abbott and Ducey when she asked for help from the National Guard. She opined about the “humanitarian crisis” in DC while slamming the “abhorrent operations” from Texas and Arizona.
Abbott set the record straight with Adams and Bowser, including a reminder that he has tried many times to get help from the federal government:
As Governor of a southern border state, I have watched illegal crossings hit record highs over and over again since President Biden took office. In the absence of federal action, I have deployed unprecedented resources to prevent, deter, and interdict illegal immigration and transnational criminal activity that threatens our citizens. Texas has spent over $3 billion in the past 18 months to curtail the devastation felt by our communities large and small.
“Unfortunately, President Biden and his ‘Border Czar’ Vice President Harris have refused to see this crisis for themselves—remaining willfully ignorant of the crisis that they have created,” continued Abbott.
America only saw 389,000 gotaways all of the 2021 Fiscal Year. Gotaways are illegal immigrants people see crossing the border but are never caught.
Illegal immigrant gotaways have already hit more than half a million in 2022 fiscal year, which ends on October 1.
The border averages around 55,000 gotaways per month.DONATE
