Texas Governor to Biden: Bring Back Trump’s Border Policies

Abbott: “This problem will continue to get worse because of the policies that have been adopted by the Biden administration”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has one simple request for president Joe Biden: bring back Trump’s border policies. On “Fox News Sunday” Abbott said, “this problem will continue to get worse because of the policies that have been adopted by the Biden administration.”

“What the president could do is to immediately put back in place the ‘remain in Mexico’ protocols that were established in the prior administration,” said Abbott. Furthermore, “he could continue to build the wall along the border in South Texas. He could send a stronger message that these people should not be coming here.” Essentially, if Biden could be less like Biden and more like Trump we would be much better off.

Biden campaigned entirely on pandering to open-border advocates and now he is left doing nothing to pick up the pieces. “Remember this, and that is one of the reasons why there are so many people coming here, is if you go back to the Democrat presidential debates, every single one of the Democrat candidates said if they are elected, they will have open borders and they will be giving things for free to anybody coming across the board,” said Abbott.

Last week the U.S. Customs and Border Protection released numbers showing Border Patrol officers encountered over 172,000 people trying to illegally enter the United States in March alone. That is a 71 percent increase from the month of February. The agency also said 18,890 unaccompanied children were encountered, doubling the number from 9,297 minors in February.

Abbott added Biden’s actions are “exactly why we’re seeing the flood, and the Biden administration was simply unprepared…which is why they have so haphazardly responded to it…and that’s why we’ve seen the dire consequences for these kids, for the adults, and especially for the state of Texas, and it will only get worse.”

    TEXAS IS OUR STATE AND I DON’T SEE WHY WE CAN’T CLOSE THE BORDERS OF TEXAS TO ILLEGALS FROM MEXICO. IT IS COSTING OUR STATE A LOT TO PUT UP WITH THE EXTRA EXPENSES INCURRED BECAUSE OF BIDEN’S POLICIES.

    Texas Rangers should invade northern Mexico and stop the invasion of people into the United States before then can get into the United States. In this way Mexico will soon have to get involved or give up ownership of their northern border lands. Texas rangers properly trained and equipped are very capable of taking over the northern portion of Mexico if indeed Mexico refuses to administer proper governance along the border. The Canadians properly govern their responsibilities along the northern border and there is no reason why Mexico cannot do the same. It should not take more than a few days or weeks to get this started and to effectively get this issue into the hands of people who want to resolve it. Right now the entire bunch of politicians are looking pretty stupid like a bunch of old castrated bulls with their horns and balls cut off. The people hear a lot of bull and mooing and grunting but nobody solving the problem.

BREAKING: Migrant Border Arrests Highest in 35 Years at 1.7 Million

Published

Border

Just last month when it was reported roughly 1.5 million migrants had been detained at the border in the fiscal year 2021, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas still defended President Biden’s border crisis by falsely stating the border is “secure.”

A mere month later and roughly an additional quarter of a million migrants have been arrested, reaching more than 1.7 million people who have been taken into U.S. custody; the highest number in 35 years. Unpublished Customs and Border Protection data obtained by The Washington Post provides details of the more than 1.7 million migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border between October 2020 through September 2021. The documents are expected to be released publicly sometime this week.

On Tuesday another Biden administration official refused to admit the reality our nation faces. During a confirmation hearing, Biden’s pick to head the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Chris Magnus refused to classify the situation at the southern border as a “crisis” only going so far as to admitting it is a “big problem.”

Daily Mail reports:

Illegal crossings began skyrocketing in the months after President Joe Biden was inaugurated – and while the administration initially tried to blame Trump’s policies for the increase, migrants have repeatedly said they made the trek to the U.S. with the belief the new administration would allow them to stay.

Another pull, migrants said, was the labor shortages in the U.S. exhibiting to them a need for workers.

In another dismissal of the growing crisis, Biden described the rise in spring 2021 as consistent with seasonal norms. That, however, did not remain true as the highest levels of illegal crossings came during the hottest months of the year, July and August.
More than 200,000 migrants were taken into CBP custody each month.

Biden’s team has continued to dismiss the crisis at the southern border, refusing to call it just that – a crisis – even as humanitarian issues emerged with overflowing holding and processing centers that reportedly served undercooked or spoiled food to unaccompanied minor migrants, as well as limited outdoor time and shower use.

Biden Administration to Reimplement Court-Ordered ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy in November

Published

Border

In August the Supreme Court declined to block a Texas lower-court ruling requiring the Biden administration to reinstate former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy for illegal immigrants attempting to cross the southern border.

The U.S. District Court in Texas ruled that the Biden administration’s attempt to eliminate the “Remain in Mexico” policy violated the Administrative Procedure Act, requiring them to reinstate it.

Thursday the Biden administration told courts the policy will be reimplemented in mid-November if it can get Mexico’s support, as it requires asylum-seekers who cross the southern border illegally to remain in Mexico before their appearance in immigration court.

Although the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has appealed the case and plans to overhaul the program, it is still required to reimplement the policy which was formally called the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).

In a statement Thursday, DHS said “Mexico is a sovereign nation that must make an independent decision to accept the return of individuals without status in Mexico as part of any reimplementation of MPP. Discussions with the Government of Mexico concerning when and how MPP will be reimplemented are ongoing.”

The Hill reports:

DHS officials said it has a “general commitment” to deciding new asylum cases within six months and plans to construct “tent courts” near Laredo and Brownsville, Texas.

It also plans to expand the types of asylum-seekers who will not be subjected to MPP, but the filing doesn’t provide details on who that would include, such as families with children. Mexico has argued that the sick, elderly, as well as those in the LGBT community, should be exempt from MPP.

Both the vulnerability of those returns and the timing for hearing were issues raised by Mexico, along with a demand the U.S. provide “better coordination” on when migrants would be expelled into the country.
