President Joe Biden’s six words at the CNN Town Hall that should strike every American as frightening is when he responded to Anderson Cooper about visiting the border: “I guess I should go down.” Biden said he hasn’t had time to visit the border even under the extreme amount of illegal immigration flowing into the United States.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has finally decided to curtail some migrant traffic, but why didn’t he act sooner? Abbott is sending armed National Guard members to the southern border to arrest illegal immigrants for trespass. In all reality, it shouldn’t be solely Abbott’s job to ensure border security is up to par, but here we are.
“But-but-but the whole point of it is that I haven’t had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down” is what Biden used as an excuse. Biden said that he’s been going around looking at the $900 billion worth of damage caused by natural disasters. Biden seemed extremely disinterested in looking at the damage caused by massive riots in 2020 that caused almost $2 billion in damages to innocent people.
Biden’s failure on top of Vice President Kamala Harris’ failure at the southern border encompasses an administration that cares nothing about people and only on profit. Biden has spent a massive amount of time pushing his trillions of dollars of spending bills, but when it comes to the issues everyday Americans are concerned about, Biden and Harris are nowhere to be seen.
Abbott uses Operation Lone Star to give the National Guard the authority to arrest migrants, and they were even given deadly force training like police go through. Around 3,000 National Guard members will be sent to the border within the next six weeks, according to the Center for Immigration Services.
It’s also a constitutional duty of the President of the United States to make sure the borders are secure. Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution says, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.”
The National Guard will mainly be working with the Department of Public Safety Officers in places where many illegal immigrants are coming across the border, such as Del Rio, Texas. After over 1 million illegal aliens have been encountered since October of 2020, it’s about time that this nonsense stops and someone takes charge in stopping the national security risk that’s being imposed on American citizens.
