Joe Biden has destroyed much of the safety measures created by President Donald Trump that would have haulted illegal immigration into the country.
Large crowds of migrants are now trying to breach the U.S.-Mexico border, hoping that Biden will allow them entry.
This is to be expected, as Biden’s stance on the issue of illegal immigration is to legalize everyone who enters the country.
The free state of Texas is having none of this.
Legislation was just introduced by Rep. Bryan Slaton (R-Canton), that proposes the completion of President Trump’s border wall via the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Slaton is adament that despite Biden’s attempts to prevent the wall’s completion, border security is too important for the safety of all Texans.
“President Trump fought to bring real border security and was opposed by Republicans and Democrats in Congress. While hundreds of miles of new wall were built under his leadership, the Biden administration has already ceased border wall construction.”
The Texan has more on the content of this new bill:
Rep. Bryan Slaton (R-Canton) filed legislation on Thursday to direct the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to finish former President Trump’s border wall project using state funds.
The state representative contended that President Biden should not stop Texans from finishing what the last administration started.
“President Trump fought to bring real border security and was opposed by Republicans and Democrats in Congress. While hundreds of miles of new wall were built under his leadership, the Biden administration has already ceased border wall construction,” Slaton said in a press statement.
“It is time for Texas to stand up and finish the work that President Trump started. Let’s finish building the border wall now,” he added.
In fact, the bill would even name the state’s part of the security barrier after Trump, who is a possible 2024 presidential contender.
The text states, “[DPS] must include as part of the transportation infrastructure, technology, and commercial vehicle inspection infrastructure at ports of entry along this state’s international border the construction to federal specifications for similar infrastructure of a wall to be named the ‘President Donald J. Trump Wall.’”
The legislation calls for an account called the “border security enhancement fund” and would instruct the governor to ask the federal government to reimburse the state for the costs associated with finishing the border wall.
Whatever reimbursement the federal government might provide would be deposited into the state’s rainy day fund.
Any contractors who participated in building the President Donald J. Trump Wall would be required to participate in e-verify — a program established in 1996 that enables employers to confirm information on their potential employees’ applications, especially whether the individual is authorized to work in the U.S.
The state would also be required to give preference to contractors from Texas.
This bill is par for the course for Texas.
The state also recently lifted mask mandates, and democrats are seething over the state's commitment to freedom for all legal citizens.
Democrats are angrily against opening the state because of the coronavirus, yet they cheer on open borders...
The dems have stopped short of calling the migrant situation in Texas a full blown crisis, but even they recognize that there will soon be no doubt that it is.
Texas democrats lawmakers are already saying as much.
More on that from Fox News:
Rep. Henry Cuellar, , D-Texas, whose district borders Mexico, says he believes the situation at the border will "become a crisis" if President Joe Biden’s administration does not take a stronger stance against illegal immigration.
"Is it a crisis? No. Is it getting there? Yes," Cuellar told "America’s Newsroom" on Tuesday.
"The numbers have been increasing … The number of unaccompanied kids, the number of families that are coming in are just increasing every day," he said. "In my district, just a couple of days ago, 166 people [crossed the border], and it just goes on and just different numbers are going up. So it’s not a crisis yet, but it’s going to get there very soon."
The president has ordered a pause on funding for the border wall and revoked Trump’s pause on green card applicants entering the country because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Biden also ended the previous administration’s "Remain in Mexico" policy, which allowed immigration enforcement officials to send non-Mexican asylum seekers to Mexico as they waited for their cases to be arbitrated in the U.S. court system.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is deflecting any blame for the border crisis, instead blaming Donald Trump.
