On Tuesday, at a press conference, Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas slammed President Joe Biden and his administration for their failure of handling the crisis at the southern border, where many migrants are coming in by the thousands.
Abbott unleashed on Biden for showing that he is incapable of dealing with this crisis while illegal migrants continue to pour in across the border and into Del Rio, Texas.
Abbott Says Biden Admin is Incapable
He said that the only thing the Biden administration has shown is its incapability of handling the situation. Abbott noted that it does so candidly to the point that it pretends the crisis doesn’t exist. He then reiterated that the crisis exists and that it’s chaotic. The Texas governor then said that the current administration needs to significantly “up their game.”
He then criticized Biden for the seemingly lax border policies that are in place at the border, such as “catch-and-release.”
He said that one can witness the onrush when the administration has dropped the pretense of making sure the border and our sovereignty is secure.
As Biden continues to create chaos, Texas has taken the lead on securing the border, not just for border communities, but for communities across Texas & the U.S.
We will continue surging state resources to save lives & keep Texans safe.

The Texas governor’s comments echoed those that he had already pointed out in a letter addressed to the current administration that he wrote on Monday. The said letter requested for the president to make a federal emergency declaration in connection to the southern border crisis.
