Abbott continues to blame the Biden administration for the southern border crisis as he presents new action plan
Texas – Texas Governor Greg Abbott once again slammed the Biden administration claiming they are the ones responsible with the immigration crisis at the southern border since taking the White House office in January.
On Wednesday, Abbott presented the so-called “action plan” at the what appears to be Republican-only event at the southern border.
According to Abbott, 26 governors were working on the plan in an effort to help the state of Texas in battling the recent immigration surges at the border.
Political experts say that the event was nothing more than a political theater from Abbott without offering new solutions of how the state should approach the immigration issue.
“Were here to announce ten actions that President Biden must take immediately,” Abbott said.
Gov. Abbott was joined in Hidalgo County by nine fellow Republican governors as he released an action plan he said can stop the immigration problem plaguing the southern border.
“We saw exactly what happened in Del Rio, Texas, just last month. We know that chaos will be repeated unless President Biden takes action,” Abbott said.
The most recent surge was last month when thousands of Haitians tried to enter the country, but were stopped under an international bridge in Del Rio seeking asylum.
The problem is not something new, but Texas state officials blame president Joe Biden and the White House administration for doing almost nothing in helping them battling the immigrants since they took over the White House office in January.
The number of immigrants has been growing every month this year setting new record high number of immigrants trying to enter the United States.
Even security experts believe that the problem with the immigrants at the southern border is national issue and that bipartisan support is required in finding a solution that will actually work.
“Immigration is a national security problem,” said Dr. Robert Sanders, chair of the national security department at the University of New Haven.
Sanders said “root causes” need to be addressed in order to keep people from fleeing their countries.
“How do we get there? Well, if we all identify the problem in the same way, that would be a start. And that’s not what we’ve been able to do because of what you started with the politics of it,” he explained.
According to Abbott, some Democratic governors also took part of the creation of the action plan, but none of them attend the Wednesday event that looked more like a press conference.
“The Biden Administration must reinstate the remain in Mexico protocols, which require asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while awaiting their court hearing,” Abbott said. “The Biden Administration must finish securing the border, which includes among other things, finishing the border wall.”
