"As Governor, I invite you to visit our border region to see firsthand the dire situation that only grows more urgent with each passing day, and to meet with the local officials, who like yourselves, realize this matter deserves immediate federal action.”
Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – After Texas has bused 1,000s of undocumented imigrants to the nation's capitol in Washington, D.C. – who would have otherwise been released into small Texas border communities with more limited resources than the nation’s capital – Governor Abbott responded to New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ false accusations attacking the mission last month by calling on the mayor to direct his complaints to President Biden for refusing to secure the southern border.
This week, as local communities along the nation's souther border and across Texas are being overrun by record-high numbers of illegal immigrants, and as President Biden’s reckless open border policies have invited mass migration and transnational criminal activity into Texas communities, Governor Greg Abbott sent a letter to both New York City's Mayor and Washington, D.C.'s Mayor Muriel Bowser Monday inviting them to visit Texas’ Southern Border to see the humanitarian crisis firsthand.
"As Governor, I invite you to visit our border region to see firsthand the dire situation that only grows more urgent with each passing day, and to meet with the local officials, who like yourselves, realize this matter deserves immediate federal action,” reads Abbott's letter.
“As law enforcement agents along the Texas-Mexico border respond to 1,000s of illegal crossings each and every day, putting their lives on the line for Texans and for all Americans, the crisis demands the attention of not only the Biden Administration, which is responsible for securing the border, but of leaders across the country," said Abbott (at right, holding a recent a Press Conference in Mission, Texas with the governors of nine other states.)
