Texas Builds Wall On Mexico Border, Asks States For Police Help

The feds are absent on the border.

It has gotten so bad on our Southern border that Texas, an individual state, is now herself building a border wall. Also, Texas Governor Gregg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, both Republicans, are requesting law enforcement aid from other states to cover the gap left by the federal government’s inaction on the border, as the feds are dropping off illegals in neighboring states.

FNC: “The governors of Texas and Arizona are calling on their counterparts in other states to send law enforcement to the border to help stem the crisis at the southern border that has overwhelmed officials and border states. Both the federal government and border states have been dealing with a surge in migration to the border, with more than 180,000 migrants encountered in May alone — including more than 10,000 unaccompanied children. Texas and Arizona have seen a number of facilities built, opened or refashioned to house the migrants coming across the border — including the use of hotels by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Officials have complained that migrants are often let loose into communities and able to travel to wherever they want. This week, the governors of Iowa and Tennessee have again raised concerns about unaccompanied migrant children being flown into their states — and have called for hearings into what they describe as a lack of transparency from the Biden administration on the matter.”

“On behalf of Texas and Arizona, we respectfully but urgently request that you send all available law-enforcement resources to the border in defense of our sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona wrote in a letter this week.

“This failure to enforcement federal immigration laws causes banns that spill over into every State. The cartels will see to it that their deadly fentanyl and human-trafficking victims reach far and wide,” the letter to fellow governors says. “The convicted criminals they smuggle into the homeland will bring recidivism with them to far too many of your communities. Texas and Arizona have stepped up to secure the border in the federal government’s absence, and now the Emergency Management Assistance Compact gives your state a chance to stand strong with us.”
