Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) released the following statement in response to Governor Abbott's Disaster Declaration for the State of Texas in response to the growing crisis on our southern borders:
"Governor Abbott is right to step in when the Biden Administration refuses to act. We must ensure that the surge in illegal border crossings does not displace the 400,00 children in the U.S. foster care system who already face insurmountable hurdles each day.
"President Biden’s deliberate inaction to enforce the rule of law at the southern border emboldens cartels, human trafficking, and criminal violence and places unaccompanied migrant children in dangerous, cruel conditions. Here in Texas, we see first-hand the effects of the Biden Border Crisis and will always work to protect the health and safety of vulnerable children and law-abiding citizens."
