If there is one thing that we knew for sure when Joe Biden was elected, it was that there were several subjects on which No. 46 was going to be in complete disagreement with No. 45. Immigration was most certainly at the top of that list, particularly after the liberal left spent such an inordinate amount of time lambasting each and every border maneuver that the Trump administration even mentioned.
Unfortunately, this has effected a number of border states in increasingly adverse ways, and Texas authorities are not letting it continue without a fight.
The Biden administration’s handling of the southern border crisis is putting Texans at risk, state Attorney General Ken Paxton told “The Faulkner Focus” on Friday.
KEN PAXTON: They adopted this policy of open borders and they’re sticking with it despite the consequences of the spread of COVID, human trafficking, increase in drug trafficking, increase of crime and just general chaos … You know, you’ve got all of these kids that are caged up that shouldn’t be here.”take our poll - story continues below
“It is so sad because we’ve seen this happen before and saw this happen under Obama, we saw it happening at the beginning of the Trump Administration. We got it cut back. We saw what the consequences were, we saw the consequences to those that were coming, the negative consequences to these children and we saw the negative consequences to our state and to our country and, yet, for some reason, we want to repeat that. I have no good explanation for why he is doing it. It certainly isn’t good for our country and it isn’t for the kids who are coming across the border.
And Texas had more than words on the subject:
“We have a lawsuit to stop them from not enforcing federal law relating to people coming across the border. They are supposed to be arresting and deporting these people. We haven’t gotten into court to show that evidence. At some point, it will take a while. We have an injunction. We need to get back in court and have the opportunity to have the court put it back in place.”
