Greg Abbott refers to NYC migrant plan as ‘insanity’
— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) February 5, 2024
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has done more to prevent America from invasion than the entire federal government. Abbott has explained countless times that the Biden Administration is simply lying to the American people by claiming that the situation is out of the president’s hands. More so, he rightfully believes the federal government is now, more than ever, INCENTIVIZING illegals to cross into our nation.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams requested and was approved to receive $53,000,000.00 to provide to illegal migrants. Every migrant will receive a free pre-paid debit card each month on top of the free shelter, healthcare, and electronics that the government has provided them. Homeless citizens, veterans even, do not receive this luxury. Adams said the program will save taxpayers in the state $7.2 million annually when there is no reason for citizens to pay for illegal aliens in the first place. The Associated Press posted a story to clarify that they are receiving debit cards and not credit cards, as if it is better that they will not be expected to repay.
“[The program] sounds like insanity is behind it because it really is offensive, it may be the most reprehensible thing that I’ve seen take place over the past 48 hours,” Greg Abbott told reporters, noting that these people have shown no respect for America or the legal system. “What’s going on in New York is outrageous and Americans across the country are angry, not just about what’s going on in New York, but the underlying cause for it, which is Joe Biden’s open border policies,” he said.
Biden has the power to secure the border immediately. Instead, he is incentivizing people from around the world to cross into US territory to receive their taxpayer-subsidized life.
“Biden says he needs Congress to give him the power to do whatever he needs to do to secure the border. The fact is as we all saw from what President Trump did, the president of the United States has the power. I must emphasize this. There are laws in the United States that require the president to deny illegal entry to any illegal immigrant and then if they do get in the United States, he has a legal obligation to detain those illegal immigrants,” Abbott explained.
The role of the president in securing the border is derived from the powers vested in the Executive Branch, as the president can issue executive orders to direct executive officers or clarify and further existing laws, which can include measures related to border security. This can include issuing executive orders to implement and enforce immigration laws, enhance border security, and provide resources for border enforcement. Additionally, Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 of the Constitution recognizes states’ sovereign power to repel invasions, which some argue provides a constitutional basis for states to take action to secure their borders in the absence of sufficient federal government action.
These socialistic programs almost guarantee that more people will cross into America in the days and weeks to come. Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution defines treason as “levying war” against the United States or “adhering to [the] enemies [of the United States], giving them aid and comfort” and that is precisely what is happening to our once great nation.
