Governor Abbott Statement On President Biden’s Hollow Border Order

June 4, 2024 | Austin, Texas | Press Release

Governor Greg Abbott today issued a statement following President Joe Biden's signing of an executive order that essentially legalizes the millions of illegal immigrants already in our country and allows thousands more to illegally cross our southern border daily: 
“Today's announcement is nothing but a smokescreen for President Biden's failed open border policies. This executive order will do nothing but further an invasion into our country, inviting thousands of unvetted illegal immigrants to cross the border every single day—the exact opposite of shutting down the border. 
Since his first day in office, President Biden dismantled all of his predecessor’s successful border policies, encouraging millions of illegal immigrants—including dangerous criminals and terrorists—into our country. For three years, the President has lied about the existence of the border crisis, deflected blame to Congress, and now contradicts himself by issuing a feckless executive order months before Election Day."
