Joe Biden’s failed regime has wrecked the country.
Conservatives are left trying to clean up his mess.
And Biden blew a gasket when he saw Greg Abbott make this surprising move.
The country is dealing with a catastrophe on the border from Joe Biden’s radical agenda.
Biden has dismantled any semblance of border security and opened the floodgates of illegal immigration.
With the federal government failing to do its job, Republican states have been forced to take matters into their own hands.
Texas has been ground zero for the Biden border crisis, as the state is currently overwhelmed by a surge of illegal aliens.
Republicans in Texas have launched unprecedented measures to secure the border.
Texas began construction on a state-funded border wall picking up where President Trump’s efforts left off.
Dubbed Operation Lone Star, Governor Greg Abbott deployed the Texas National Guard and state law enforcement to assist with border security efforts.
Now Texas is doubling down on this unprecedented border security effort by transferring $495.3 million from the state’s general fund to Operation Lone Star.
Funding for the program was set to run out, but with the border crisis raging on, Republican leadership recommitted to defending the border.
State agencies involved in Operation Lone Star had requested the funding to continue their mission.
Greg Abbott and other Republican leaders from the State House and State Senate explained the decision to the heads of these agencies.
“These transfers are meant to support the deployment of the National Guard with $465.3 million and to support border operations in other state agencies with $30 million,” Republican leadership stated.
“We understand the Fiscal Years 2020-2021 appropriations would otherwise lapse and be unavailable to your agencies and that the Fiscal Year 2022 appropriations have been fully funded with other sources,” they added.
Governor Greg Abbott explained why Texas had to take this unprecedented action.
“Texas will not sit on the sidelines as President [Joe] Biden continues turning a blind eye to the crisis at our southern border,” Abbott said.
“Texans’ safety and security is our top priority, and we will continue fighting to keep our communities safe. This additional funding ensures the Lone Star State is fully equipped to provide Texans the border security strategy they demand and deserve,” he concluded.
State Senator Joan Huffman said that Operation Lone Star has led to the arrest of 14,000 illegal aliens and the confiscation of thousands of pounds of drugs.
“While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows,” Abbott remarked.
“Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” he explained.
The state has been forced to spend about $4 billion on border security since the Biden border crisis began.
With Biden not doing his job, more Republican states will be forced to take action to secure their borders.
