White House Ratchets up TX Feud as Border Truckers Rage

Linkedin Share

The State of Texas has long been one of the most independent territories in this great nation, building on the liberty ethos that our country was founded upon, and upholding the utmost version of states’ rights that can exist in America.

And while this noble work has long imbued a major sense of pride among Texans, it has often caused the state government to butt heads with their federal counterparts.

This week was no exception as the Biden White House looked to ramp up their feud with Lone Star State Governor Greg Abbott.

The Biden administration is claiming that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s inspection of trucks entering the U.S. from Mexico is not only “unnecessary,” but contributing to inflation throughout the country.

In a statement issued Wednesday morning, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that the delays caused by Abbott’s policies were having far-reaching impacts.

The statement felt like a bit of a stretch, given just how consistently the Biden agenda has already contributed to inflation over the course of the last several months.

“Governor Abbott’s unnecessary and redundant inspections of trucks transiting ports of entry between Texas and Mexico are causing significant disruptions to the food and automobile supply chains, delaying manufacturing, impacting jobs, and raising prices for families in Texas and across the country.,” Psaki said.

At issue was a new policy from Abbott:

Last week, Abbott directed the Texas Department of Public Safety to carry out “enhanced safety inspections” of vehicles that pass through ports of entry, citing “cartels that smuggle illicit contraband and people across our southern border.” Abbott is anticipating an uptick in smuggling when the Biden administration ceases expelling migrants via the Title 42 public health order.

The statement from the White House comes at a time in which the President and his PR team have been spraying an inordinate amount of excuses regarding the economic crisis here in America, with Psaki just yesterday suggesting that Americans should be prepared for more trouble in the coming weeks.
