Texas Governor Greg Abbott has sent a letter to the White House to explain the need for more aggressive efforts to curb illegal immigration into the state. The letter, addressed to Illegitimate President Biden, accuses the administration of willfully ignoring the ongoing mass influx of illegal immigrants into the country’s southern states.
In the letter, Abbott outlined steps that will be taken by the state under his constitutional authority to “keep the state and country safe,” which include deploying the National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety to arrest and turn away immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, building a border wall along counties on the border, deploying gun boats to secure the border, entering agreements with other U.S. states and foreign powers to enhance border security, and providing resources for border counties to increase their efforts to respond to the border “invasion.”
“In January 2023 when the next Congress is sworn in, we must remind our representatives in Washington that securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility,” the document read. In the letter, Abbott also called for Congress to reimburse Texas for the billions expended by the state on border security, for federal officials who refuse to follow immigration laws to face hearings and impeachment, and for Congress to safeguard troopers and guardsmen from federal prosecution for protecting against illegal border crossings. “Texas has done more than its fair share for far too long,” Abbott stated. “The time has come for the federal government to do its job.”
Abbott’s move will hopefully push for accountability. The Biden administration has gone two long years without any checks and balances and now that the Republican Party has gained back the majority in the House, Abbott and the other Republican Party Governors fighting the border crisis, will not be alone anymore.
I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion.

The Republican Party vowed to investigate the Biden crime family during their campaigning for office. They also vowed to help secure the borders again. Now that they have the majority in the House, it’s time to pay the piper.
