Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration for 34 counties along or near the Lone Star State’s border with Mexico, claiming that President Biden’s immigration policies had allowed in human traffickers, gang members, and a flood of drugs. Abbott noted that Texas Department of Public Safety troopers had made over 1,300 criminal arrests, apprehended over 35,000 illegal migrants and seized over 10,000 pounds of drugs and over 100 firearms since March 6 of this year. Between January and April, troopers had intercepted 21.5 million lethal doses of fentanyl. Last week, Abbott announced plans to enact legislation criminalizing the manufacture or delivery of fentanyl, a deadly opioid. He also plans to arrest and imprison illegal aliens for aggravated trespassing that could lead to jail sentences of 6 months or more.

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration for 34 counties along or near the Lone Star State’s border with Mexico Tuesday, claiming that President Biden’s immigration policies had allowed in a flood of drugs and gang members.

“President Biden’s open-border policies have paved the way for dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers, and deadly drugs like fentanyl to pour into our communities,” Abbott said in a statement.

“Meanwhile, landowners along the border are seeing their property damaged and vandalized on a daily basis while the Biden Administration does nothing to protect them.”

In the declaration, Abbott noted that Texas Department of Public Safety troopers had “made over 1,300 criminal arrests, apprehended over 35,000 illegal migrants and seized over 10,000 pounds of drugs and over 100 firearms” since March 6 of this year. He also stated that between January and April, troopers had intercepted “21.5 million lethal doses of fentanyl.”

““President Biden’s open-border policies have paved the way for dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers, and deadly drugs like fentanyl to pour into our communities,” Actually, it is the only those who actually serve within the House Of Reps and the Senate who creates legislation that those who serve within the executive branch are required by contract (US Constitution) to enforce.
