Governor Orders Troopers to RISE UP – Game On!
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Since President Joe Biden took office, record numbers of illegal immigrants have attempted passage into the United States. State leaders in border areas have been forced to do what they can to stem the flow of migrants. Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) has been one of the strongest opponents of Biden’s approach to immigration, and he recently took yet another step to prevent undocumented migrants from remaining in his state.
On Thursday, July 7, Abbott signed an executive order enabling the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas National Guard to return illegal immigrants to the border. His office’s announcement of the move stated it had become necessary because of Biden’s push to get rid of border enforcement capabilities like Title 42 and the Remain in Mexico policy. The announcement highlighted that “historic” levels of illegal immigration are now taking place, with 5,000 migrant apprehensions over the July 4th weekend.

Analysts have noted that this is a historically significant move from Abbott. Federal authorities are in charge of immigration, and the state of Texas has never passed a measure like this in the past. It appears Abbott is attempting to check the boundaries of his authority as a state governor regarding immigration enforcement.
Do you think this is a wise move?
