Tuesday multiple border town counties in Texas announced that they are making an emergency “invasion” declaration to the southern border that has seen a historic flow of illegal immigration thanks to President Biden’s policies.
“The move aligns with some conservative officials and activists who have privately urged Abbott to begin unilaterally enforcing federal immigration laws,” the Houston Chronicle reported. “Expelling migrants from the country would be unprecedented for the state but justified, they argue, by the Biden administration’s push to expand legal pathways for migrants to enter the country,” the Chronicle report added.
“The Biden administration won’t do a thing about it,” Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan told reporters. “They could stop this thing this hour. They could stop it now. They don’t have the guts,” Judge Shahan added.
The massive surge of illegal migrants under the leadership of Joe Biden has caused a historic shortage of resources in these border town communities. Officials report that there has been a large surge in crime and property damage cases caused by illegal immigrants.
“In my community, we have less than 1,000 residents. The thousand residents everyday live in fear of the invasion,” Dale Lynn Carruthers, the county judge for Terrell County, said. “We are doing the best we can with limited manpower. Terrell County has the least to offer… but we have a lot of border coverage,” he added.
“It’s a nightmare,” Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin said. “It needs to stop. The federal government is not going to do it. We’re not doing these people any favors. We’re setting them up for failure. You’re turning them loose with nowhere to go, no jobs, and no work permit.”
Despite multiple efforts by state and local governments, illegal immigration is breaking new records every week. The Republican administration in Texas has tried building new border walls around local private properties. Governor Greg Abbott has also deployed state troopers and the National Guard to the border to help Federal Border Patrol agents with their efforts. Federal government policies enforced by the Biden administration though are making all this effort worthless.
“President Biden was warned in advance that reduced border enforcement would lead to dire consequences, and we have seen those dire consequences,” Gov. Abbott said. “The worst thing of all is the catastrophic death that we have witnessed. We saw this horrendous death occur in a truck in San Antonio earlier this week. It is heartbreaking,” he added.
