Texas Gov. Shuts Down Border Entries as Caravans ‘Overrun’ the State

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas is greeted by U.S. Border Patrol RGV Chief Brian S. Hastings as they prepare to lead a delegation of Congressional representatives on a tour of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Donna Processing Facility in Donna, Texas, May 7, 2021.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he had no choice but to direct border agents to close six ports of entry to the country after migrant caravans continued to “overrun” the state.

The Daily Wire reports:

“The sheer negligence of the Biden Administration to do their job and secure the border is appalling. I have directed the Department of Public Safety and the Texas National Guard to surge personnel and vehicles to shut down six points of entry along the southern border to stop these caravans from overrunning our state,” Abbott said in a statement Thursday.

Abbott’s drastic action came after drone footage captured by Fox News showed the number of migrants waiting for processing in Del Rio, Texas, doubled overnight from 4,200 to 8,000 people.

“The border crisis is so dire that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection is requesting our help as their agents are overwhelmed by the chaos. Unlike President Biden, the State of Texas remains committed to securing our border and protecting Americans,” Abbott continued.

Abbott also claimed the Biden administration initially asked Texas to help close the border amid the surge in illegal crossings, however then the administration reversed its orders only hours later.

“Six hours after U.S. Customs and Border Protection requested help from Texas to close ports of entry and secure the border, the Biden Administration has now flip-flopped to a different strategy that abandons border security and instead makes it easier for people to cross illegally and for cartels to exploit the border,” Abbott said in another statement Thursday. “The Biden Administration is in complete disarray and is handling the border crisis as badly as the evacuation from Afghanistan. I have directed the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas National Guard to maintain their presence at and around ports of entry to deter crossings.”

The Biden administration has since placed a temporary ban on drones after shocking coverage emerged of thousands of migrants packed underneath an overpass.

No communist leader is ever too senile, too mean, too sadistic, too mad, too outlandish, too demonic, too anything left of left! That’s the nature of the beast. And, once in, no one can remove a dictator.

The administration decided to ban drones too late, we already saw the photos of the illegals massed at the border. Do they think we are so senile we won’t remember seeing those photos? It’s is Biden that is senile not the rest of us.

This is the worst of a dozen catastrophes created by our IIC (Imbecile-In-Chief). The democrat motive is clear. They plan 15 million additional entitlement collectors that soon will be become democrat voters. Consistent democrat government quickly will morph into hard core communism.

Free stuff for everyone. Nobody will compete. Innovation will stop. Communist bosses will be rich and move on. The population will starve and riot, a la, Venezuela. The greatest constitutional republic will survive only through a second revolution. It’ll be especially difficult without privately owned arms.

What do they need with border entrances? They can walk across in the middle of an open field just as easy. Go turn themselves in to the border patrol and get shipped all over the US. Don’t cost them a dime. All donated by the taxpayers.

Closing the ports FREES UP agents, cops & Nat’n’l Guard troops to patrol those areas where that could happen, instead of babysitting the masses of invaders overwhelming out points of entry. Otherwise those areas are wide open, easy to cross in.

God Bless governor Abbott and the good people of Texas for unwillingly having to put up with this tragedy. Yes, it is an insurgence of great BAD proportions. Close the gates and send them all back walking to where they came from.
For those crazies who support this illegitimate admin and these nuts coming through our borders illegally, they need to go to your neighborhood. Better yet. House them and support them. Morons!

Yay, Abbott! Just close the points of entry, & tell the invaders to go home! Back it up with firepower, if that’s what it takes! These are NOT “immigrants”, they’re INVADING CRIMINALS!
