Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) has called out two leftist mayors who have recently complained about illegal immigration despite supporting weak immigration policies.
The Daily Wire reports:
Abbott addressed New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. Adams recently complained that the burgeoning number of illegal immigrants in his city comprised a “real burden” on his city; Bowser has been complaining for weeks that the number of immigrants arriving in buses sent by Abbott and Arizona GOP Governor Doug Ducey “have reached tipping points.”
“This crisis was created by President Biden and is one that requires immediate and decisive action to be stopped,” Abbott charged in a letter to Adams and Bowser. “As Governor of a southern border state, I have watched illegal crossings hit record highs over and over again since President Biden took office.”
“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,” Abboitt continued. “In fact, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas recently testified that the border is ‘safe and secure.’ It is neither safe nor secure, as you can both attest to.”
Then he offered, “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.”
“We agree that this crisis demands immediate federal action to prevent the flood of deadly fentanyl, now the leading cause of death for Americans ages 18 to 45, the unimaginable horrors caused by human smuggling and trafficking, the known terrorists from entering our country, and the countless other crimes that have been committed by the hundreds of thousands of ‘gotaways’ that the Biden Administration has let slip through,” Abbott wrote in his letter to the mayors, adding, “I look forward to welcoming you the Texas-Mexico border so that you can see this crisis for yourself.”
