Texas Rep. Jodey Arrington supports measures by officials in his state to take matters into their own hands over the migrant crisis, alleging President Biden has “surrendered” control of the border and describing the situation as an invasion.
“They are definitely doing the right thing and I commend the governor for following suit,” the Republican congressman told Fox News Digital this week.
Arrington spoke after a wave of moves in Texas over the border. On Tuesday, several provinces declared the crisis on the southern border an “invasion” and called on Governor Greg Abbott to do the same, arguing that it would give the state more power to send illegal immigrants to Mexico.
Abbott signed an executive order On Thursday, the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) will be able to arrest and return illegal immigrants who have crossed between ports of entry to the southern border. Under the order, illegal aliens will be brought to the US, but not to Mexico.
Mace said the border crisis should be “a two-pronged concern” and despite the illegal crossings and fentanyl prevailing, the Biden administration has done nothing. She went on to say that the border crisis is one of the main issues that will lead to Republican victories in the midterm elections.
“You’re going to see a giant red wave in November. That’s why it’s important to support Republicans who have solutions, Republicans like Governor Greg Abbott and others along the border, and others in Congress who have solutions to this looming crisis that is growing day by day. worse and worse.”
