Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Sunday that in his state it’s not just Republicans who are pushing back against the Biden administration as migrants surge to the southern border in record numbers.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, there were more than 172,000 border stops in March – the most in 20 years – and 20,822 unaccompanied minors are in federal custody. Republicans have blamed the spike on Biden’s immigration policies, but Abbott insists that in Texas they are not alone.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This is a bipartisan response to the Biden administration because you have Democrat members of the United States Congress, you have Democratic members of the state legislature, as well as Democrat local officials who are pushing back against the Biden administration as much as conservatives in the state of Texas,” the Republican governor told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.
Federal officials project that the number of unaccompanied minors in federal custody will surge to 35,000, according to The New York Times.
But Abbott believes the number will end up being “far higher” than that, adding that a bipartisan response from the White House is needed to improve the situation.
“This problem will continue to get worse because of the policies that have been adopted by the Biden administration,” Abbott said. “What the president could do is to immediately put back in place the ‘remain in Mexico’ protocols that were established in the prior administration.”
“He could continue to build the wall along the border in south Texas. He could send a stronger message that these people should not be coming here,” he added.
