24 Republican Governors Unite to Support Texas Governor Abbott's Call for Border Assistance
Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott wrote a request to governors of every state. He asked for their support to help him manage the border crisis.
For the past two years, Governor Abbott launched Operation Lone Star to help Texas and the border crisis. Migrants were crossing the Texas-Mexico border seeking asylum. Some crossed and brought drugs with them.
“While the federal government has abdicated its duties, Republican governors stand ready to protect the U.S.-Mexico border and keep families safe.”
“Texas Governor Greg Abbott has exemplified leadership at a critical time, leading the way with Operation Lone Star, and deploying the Texas Tactical Border Force to prevent illegal crossings and keep the border secure.”
“We support the efforts to secure the border led by Governor Abbott.”
“The federal government’s response handling the expiration of Title 42 has represented a complete failure of the Biden Administration. While the federal government has abdicated its duties, Republican governors stand ready to protect the U.S.–Mexico border and keep families safe.”
“All states have suffered from the effects of deadly illegal drugs coming across the border, and every state is a border state due to the devastating influx of drugs in our communities. Republican governors are leading the way to address the border crisis by increasing fentanyl sentencing and increasing support for law enforcement interdiction of drugs, among other measures,"
