Texas governor asks Biden to declare a state of emergency over border chaos:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott asked President Biden to declare a border emergency, saying Monday that things have spiraled into chaos and federal money is needed to reimburse the state for some of the billions of dollars being spent trying to control the crisis.
“The State of Texas is doing more than any state has ever done to protect the border, but more is needed,” the Republican governor said in a letter to Mr. Biden.
He said things have been troubling for some time but grew unbearable in recent days as illegal immigrants erected a camp on the banks of the Rio Grande in Del Rio. At its peak, the camp had about 16,000 migrants, compared to a total population of about 35,000 in Del Rio. --->READ MORE HERE
Half of All US Governors Just Sent Biden a Letter Demanding He 'Take Action to Protect America':
Twenty-six Republican governors sent a letter on Monday to President Joe Biden for an urgent meeting to “take action” to address the growing border crisis.
“As chief executives of our states, we request a meeting with you at The White House to bring an end to the national security crisis created by eight months of unenforced borders,” the letter began.
“The months-long surge in illegal crossings has instigated an international humanitarian crisis, spurred a spike in international criminal activity, and opened the floodgates to human traffickers and drug smugglers endangering public health and safety in our states,” the governors continued.
“As President, you have the ability to take action to protect America, restore security, and end the crisis now.” --->READ MORE HERE
