Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbott decided to make his own deal in light of the White House’s absence of security concerns regarding the ongoing crisis on the Southern Border.
The Republican governor declared that he has formally partnered with Samuel García, who serves as the governor of Nuevo León, a state in Mexico. The partnership will entail securing a section of the U.S.-Mexico border in part of Texas.
Per Governor Abbott’s office, García signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Free and Sovereign State of Nuevo León and the State of Texas, which is designed to significantly enhance border security measure while also stemming the flow of illegal immigration.
The agreement is set to take effect immediately.
Abbott declared that Texans well deserve “an aggressive, comprehensive border security strategy that will protect our communities from the dangerous consequences [associated with] illegal immigration.”
“Texas will step up and use its own strategies to secure the border and negotiate with Mexico to seek solutions that will keep Texans safe,” Abbott continued, “until President Biden enforces the immigration laws passed by Congress.”
Abbott continued on to note that the “historic memorandum” between Texas and Nuevo León will be a significant step in favor of Texas’s ongoing “efforts to secure the border in the federal government’s absence.”
While announcing the memorandum, Abbott also took the opportunity to shred the White House’s minimal security measures at the border, particularly in light of the recent decision to lift COVID-related Title 42 restrictions for illegal immigrants while extending mask mandates and other restrictions for Americans.
Texas will be taking its own unprecedented actions this month … [as] the Biden administration ending Title 42 expulsions in May,” Abbott observed.
The Republican governor’s memorandum with the Mexican governor represents an agreement that “no state in America has ever done in the history of this country [in order] to better secure our state, [not to mention] our nation,” Abbott remarked.
Other governors from Mexico, including governors from Chihuahua, Coahuila, and Tamaulipas, have expressed interest in a potential partnership with the Lone Star State.
