Joe Biden’s border issues are crippling America. And even as states like Texas take things into their own hands, he is not allowing them.
But now, Joe Biden’s Texas decision just blew up in his face.
In a stunning display of solidarity, 25 states have thrown their weight behind Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s bold actions to secure the US-Mexico border: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
This united front of Republican governors, stretching from the Rocky Mountains to the Carolinas, sends a resounding message to a beleaguered federal government:
The American people demand action on the border crisis, and they’re tired of empty promises and political finger-pointing.
President Biden’s attempt to paint Congress as the sole scapegoat for the border disaster rings hollow in the face of reality.
As he tirelessly attempts to thwart Texas’s efforts to protect its own soil and uphold its constitutional duty to defend the nation, his claims of helplessness lose all credibility.
With over 10 million illegal crossings under his watch, the buck stops in the Oval Office, not the halls of Congress.
The governors’ unwavering support for Abbott comes at a critical juncture.
After a nail-biting Supreme Court ruling granting the Biden administration temporary permission to cut through Texas’s razor wire barrier, a glimmer of hope remains.
The Texas National Guard, deployed to the strategic choke point of Eagle Pass, stands firm, refusing to cede ground to federal overreach.
Their resolve exemplifies the spirit of this nationwide coalition: unwavering in their commitment to the safety and security of American citizens.
Adding fuel to the fire, former President Donald Trump, emboldened by the public’s frustration with Biden’s inaction, has thrown his full weight behind Abbott’s border security measures.
Calling on “willing” states to send their National Guard to reinforce the Texas line, Trump amplifies the growing chorus of discontent with the current administration’s feckless approach to border security.
The Supreme Court’s razor-thin 5-4 decision exposes the deep fissures within the nation’s highest court and reflects the partisan divide plaguing the issue of border security.
While Biden’s legal gambit to dismantle the razor wire barrier temporarily succeeded, it failed to dent the determination of Texas and its allies.
The February 7 appeal, hanging like a Damocles sword over the administration, serves as a stark reminder: the fight for the border is far from over.
Beyond the legal battles and political posturing lies the human cost of Biden’s failed border policies.
Cartels and human traffickers exploit the chaotic situation, preying on desperate individuals and endangering communities across the nation.
Record numbers of fentanyl flooding the country claim countless lives, and the strain on social services and public resources reaches a breaking point.
The 25 states standing with Texas represent a cross-section of America, united by a common concern: the federal government’s abdication of its responsibility to secure the border.
This unprecedented show of solidarity transcends partisan lines and speaks to a broader national consensus: the time for rhetoric is over; the time for action is now.
Governor Abbott’s unwavering stance, backed by the collective might of 25 states and millions of Americans, has thrown down the gauntlet.
The question remains: will the Biden administration heed the call and finally prioritize the safety and security of its citizens, or will it continue to prioritize political expediency over national security?
