Texas Governor Puts Biden in His Place Over Border Chaos

And no one understands immigration like the Lone Star State.

From the very moment that Joe Biden was elected President back in 2020, there were fears among conservatives that this could bring a massive surge in illegal immigration to America.

This was due to the perceived leniency of a Democratic president with a Democratic majority in Congress when it comes to migrants crossing the border into the United States – especially when compared to Biden’s predecessor, the notorious border hawk Donald Trump.

Now, as the Biden administration continues to deny that their policies will have any effect on this “seasonal” surge, the governor of Texas is refuting that notion...strongly.

President Biden has abandoned the rule of law at the U.S.-Mexico border amid the migrant crisis, sending costs for border security soaring in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said Sunday.

Abbott told “Sunday Morning Futures” anchor Maria Bartiromo that the “root cause” of the record number of migrants entering the U.S. is because of the “lack of border security.”

“It shows that President Biden’s approach to this is to abandon the rule of law,” Abbott said of the migrant surge and Biden’s immigration policies.

And then…

“Our state legislature, they allocate about $800 million every two years for the state to pay for this,” Abbott said of securing the border. “This year, because of the extended time that we will have the National Guard on the border, it likely will clearly exceed a billion dollars for the state to have to secure the United States of America.”

Abbott said border security is only one of the many costs to the state, with others being health care, education and law enforcement. These costs will also affect other states where gangs and human traffickers go after crossing the border with migrants, the governor added.

“The first 100 days of the Biden administration, they’ve been great for the cartels, for the gangs, for the human traffickers who have been exploiting the borders,” he said.

Texas has long been one of the states most-effected by immigration, both of the legal and extralegal varieties, so when the Lone Star State leaderships speaks on the subject, the nation would be wise to listen.

Barr and Trump Have ‘Nonexistent’ Relationship as Former AG Squeals to J6 Committee

Uh oh…

Published

on

As the January 6th committee continues to run down its arbitrary list of people who just happened to be anywhere near Donald Trump at any point leading up to the attempted insurrection at the Capitol, new details are coming to light regarding the former President’s personal relationships.

The committee, which is barely trying to hide its hopes of affecting the outcomes of the 2022 and 2024 election, has been spraying subpoenas all over Washington DC in recent weeks.  Their hope appears to be that something will stick, or someone will flip, allowing them to demonize Donald Trump before the coming midterms.  This will give Democrats the ammunition they need to remain competitive in that election.

This week, as former Attorney General Bill Barr continues to cooperate with the committee, a stunning revelation about his relationship with the former President has come to light.

If Donald Trump is hoping for any help during this time of intensifying investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, he can no longer count on his former attorney general, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman warned Monday.

Asked about any remaining loyalty William Barr may have to his former boss, Haberman told Anderson Cooper on CNN: “They haven’t had a relationship in quite some time. Their relationship is nonexistent.”

One group the former attorney general does have a relationship with is the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot. Barr has been cooperating with the probe.

And that’s not all:

There were “things they agreed on. But there were a number of things they didn’t agree on over time. That began, frankly, long before Election Day,” Haberman added.

Barr, who blasted the former president’s inaction during the riot, has been “very, very clear on where he stands on Trump,” Haberman said. “That’s not something, as we know, that the former president takes very well to.”

ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, who interviewed Barr for his book “Betrayal,” called him a former “ultimate Trump loyalist.” That makes his “potential testimony” even “more powerful,” Karl warned.

He noted that Barr told him he looked carefully into every claim of 2020 presidential election fraud and determined they were “all B.S,” said Karl.

One can only imagine that this is why the committee is so interested in Barr, but refused to seat a number of Trump-loyal GOP lawmakers who wished to participate in the probe:  They are seeking only to reiterate their preconceived notions about the case.
