(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – In a recent development, the Republican Governor of a landlocked state has vowed to personally install razor wire at the border if Texas Governor Greg Abbott is hindered by President Biden or federal agencies in maintaining control over a park in Eagle Pass. This strong statement comes amidst a tense situation where U.S. Border Patrol agents have been granted permission by the Supreme Court to remove the concertina wire placed by Texas near Eagle Pass. This decision follows a legal battle, with the Supreme Court’s ruling temporarily siding against Texas’ actions.
Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota expressed her support for Governor Abbott, emphasizing the significant responsibility governors hold as commanders-in-chief of their respective National Guards. She highlighted the importance of deploying National Guard soldiers only in crucial situations. Governor Noem also criticized the Biden administration for its handling of the border crisis, describing the border as a “war zone” and accusing President Biden of radically transforming the country.
Governor Abbott has defended his actions, arguing that the federal executive branch has a constitutional obligation to enforce laws that protect states. He contends that the Founders did not intend for states to be at the mercy of a “lawless president.” Governors Ron DeSantis of Florida and Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma have also expressed solidarity with Abbott.
The situation has prompted a call from some Democrats, including Texas Representatives Greg Casar and Joaquin Castro, for President Biden to federalize Texas’ National Guard. This suggestion has been met with criticism, particularly from the congressman representing Eagle Pass, who warned against such federal action.
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has been critical of the Biden administration’s border policies, accusing the President of deliberately exacerbating the border situation. He asserts that the crisis could be resolved without additional federal funding, contrary to claims from both political parties.
The tension at the border and the debate over the federal government’s role in border security highlight a complex and contentious issue that continues to be a significant point of political and social discourse in the United States.
