Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) hand delivered a letter to President Joe Biden on Sunday during the president’s visit to the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Your visit to our southern border with Mexico today is $20 billion too little and two years too late,” the letter began. “Moreover, your visit avoids the sites where mass illegal immigration occurs and sidesteps the thousands of angry Texas property owners whose lives have been destroyed by your border policies.”
“Even the city you visit has been sanitized of the migrant camps which had overrun downtown El Paso because your Administration wants to shield you from the chaos that Texans experience on a daily basis,” the letter continued. “This chaos is the direct result of your failure to enforce the immigration laws that Congress enacted.”
Abbott noted in the letter how the U.S. border was significantly safer under the previous U.S. administration and that the illegal immigration crisis has exploded to the worst in the history of the country under Biden.
