In the first week of Biden’s presidency, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has shown he will not put up with the actions of an un-American administration. He has already called back Texas National Guard troops after pictures were released of them moved to a parking garage. The Governor’s state has now also sued the federal government regarding Biden’s executive order to stop most deportations for 100 days.
Both actions reveal the growing frustrations between states led by conservative leaders and an increasingly socialist agenda in Washington. After Trump’s refreshing change of policies following eight years of Obama’s policy warfare against the nation, Biden has returned with Obama’s third term.
Regarding the state’s National Guard members, two other states—Florida and New Hampshire—joined in recalling their personnel. Several conservatives also spoke out when pictures emerged of troops left in the cold, with not enough toilets to use including Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw, himself a former Navy SEAL. He tweeted:
“The bottom line is that when you send 25,000 troops to a city (unnecessary to begin with) and don’t plan logistics very well, it’s gonna be difficult to find space for them in between shifts.”
Texas Senator Ted Cruz also tweeted, “This should NEVER have been an issue, but glad to hear they have been welcomed back inside the Capitol.”
While the picture of our National Guard troops being mistreated angered many Americans, it was one of President Biden’s first acts as president that roiled Texas’ governor so badly that he file a lawsuit against the new administration. President Biden signed an order to stop most deportations of illegal immigrants for the first 100 days of his term. The Daily Wire reports, “Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed suit against the federal government citing an agreement the state struck with the Department of Homeland Security in the final days of the Trump administration.”
Paxton’s statement also noted, “I am confident that these unlawful and perilous actions cannot stand. The rule of law and security of our citizens must prevail.”
In just one week as President, Joe Biden has disrespected the nation’s armed forces by sticking them in a parking garage while welcoming illegal immigrants to remain safely within our borders. If this is what Americans can expect over the next four years, we’re in for a long ride.
When did people who entered our borders illegally become more important than those who protect our borders with their lives? This anti-American attitude should do more than anger Texas Governor Abbott. It should be a wakeup call to every American citizen.
And what is the long game of Team Biden? It appears Democrats are attempting to import future voters favoring their own party. Many Democrats realize more than half of America’s citizens oppose their progressive policies. The way to win for the left is to break the rules and change the rules.
Now that Democrats control Washington, the change the rules part of their plot is in full effect. If you think 100 days of stopping deportations is the only thing in the works for immigrants, think again. The President’s team is already referring to illegal immigration as regional migration, indicating a shift in language to reduce emphasis on the crime involved.
We need more patriotic leaders like Governor Abbott who will stand up and confront the evil policies of our leftist leaders. Starting with support for our troops and opposing illegal immigration seem to be great places to start.
