Kamala Harris is no longer the only border czar in this country.
That is because Texas Governor Greg Abbott has named his own border czar to serve as an adviser to Abbott on how to better control the surge at the border.
Veteran Border Patrol agent Mike Banks is now Abbott’s right hand on such matters.
New Sheriff in Town
Abbott made the announcement in San Benito, TX, which is a site for new border wall construction.
Abbott stated, “For nearly two years, the state of Texas has taken unprecedented, historic action under Operation Lone Star in response to the Biden administration’s refusal to secure the border.
“To continue doing what no other state in the history of our country has done to secure the border, I hired Mike Banks as the state of Texas’ first-ever border czar.
“As an award-winning Border Patrol agent, with decades of federal law enforcement and border security experience, Mike is the perfect choice to oversee Texas’ fight against the surge of illegal immigration, lethal drugs, and deadly weapons flowing into our state and nation.
“I have no doubt that Mike’s strong record of leadership and wealth of experience will provide Texans — and Americans — the level of border security expertise they deserve from a proper border czar.”
Unlike Kamala Harris, Banks brings more than two decades of border experience to the table, stating that he was “humbled to be selected by Governor Abbott for this opportunity.”
Banks’ primary role will be to coordinate efforts among the state agencies, local officials, and land owners to help prevent illegal crossings.
Banks served for 23 years in border security operations and has served in law enforcement overall for more than three decades.
Unlike Joe Biden, it would seem that Governor Abbott actually got his border czar appointment correct.
