With Texas Governor Greg Abbott receiving little help from the Biden administration when it comes to the thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the border, Gov. Abbott blasted not only President Joe Biden but also Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Knowing that the White House has opened investigations into border agents supposedly whipping migrants, Abbott again bucked against this notion and even offered jobs to any agent that is fired by the Biden administration.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Abbott jumped straight to the point when it comes to keeping the border safe and supporting the agents who put their lives on the line. “First, they wouldn’t have been in that situation had the Biden administration enforced the immigration laws and secured the border in the first place. Second, as you know, Chris, the person who took those pictures said that the characterization that the Democrats have made about the Border Patrol using them as whips, whipping people, coming across the border is false. They were simply maneuvering horses.”
Abbott didn’t stop there as he went on to offer jobs to agents who might be fired for doing their jobs. “But the last thing I will tell you is what the President said going after the Border Patrol, who were risking their lives and working so hard to try to secure the border, if he takes any action against them whatsoever, I have worked side by side with those Border Patrol agents. I want them to know something, if they are at risk of losing their job, got a president who is abandoning his duty to secure the border, you have a job in the state of Texas. I will hire you to help Texas secure our border.”
As for the Democrats, they have continued to push a narrative that agents were whipping migrants. They even reference a photo that might appear like a border agent is mistreating a migrant, but even the photographer behind the new viral photo said they never witnessed a migrant being whipped.
