Last week, President Biden basically declared war on his own border agents saying they will be “punished” for doing their jobs. Biden’s sharp tone towards U.S. border agents came after photos emerged of agents on horseback rounding up illegal immigrants where some falsely claimed the immigrants were being whipped by the agents. However, despite the photographer coming forward and saying he’s never seen an agent whip an immigrant Biden still took the side of illegals, making it even more difficult for agents to properly do their jobs and defend the border.
However, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is siding with brave border agents and says that any who are “punished” by the Biden administration have an open job offer in the Lone Star state.
According to The Daily Wire:
When asked if he was overstepping his authority by effectively taking over immigration in the state of Texas from the federal government, Abbott said that he was doing it “because the Biden administration is refusing to do its duty to enforce the laws of the United States,” thus leaving Texas “in no position other than for us to step up and do what we have to do.”
Later, when asked about the Border Patrol agents who rode up on the illegal aliens entering the U.S., Abbott pointed to false claims that have been circulated about the situation.
“First, they wouldn’t have been in that situation had the Biden administration enforced the immigration laws and secured the border in the first place,” Abbott said. “Second, as you know, Chris, the person who took those pictures said that the characterization that the Democrats have made about the Border Patrol using them as whips, whipping people, coming across the border is false. They were simply maneuvering horses.”
“But the last thing I will tell you is what the President said going after the Border Patrol, who were risking their lives and working so hard to try to secure the border, if he takes any action against them whatsoever, I have worked side by side with those Border Patrol agents,” Abbott continued. “I want them to know something, if they are at risk of losing their job, got a president who is abandoning his duty to secure the border, you have a job in the state of Texas. I will hire you to help Texas secure our border.”
Biden has continued to put American’s safety behind illegal immigrants and do nothing to curb the surge of migrants overflowing through the border for months.
