Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration for 34 counties along or near the Lone Star State’s border with Mexico Tuesday, claiming that President Biden’s immigration policies had allowed in a flood of drugs and gang members.
“President Biden’s open-border policies have paved the way for dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers, and deadly drugs like fentanyl to pour into our communities,” Abbott said in a statement.
“Meanwhile, landowners along the border are seeing their property damaged and vandalized on a daily basis while the Biden Administration does nothing to protect them.”
In the declaration, Abbott noted that Texas Department of Public Safety troopers had “made over 1,300 criminal arrests, apprehended over 35,000 illegal migrants and seized over 10,000 pounds of drugs and over 100 firearms” since March 6 of this year. He also stated that between January and April, troopers had intercepted “21.5 million lethal doses of fentanyl.”
“Texas continues to step up to confront the border crisis in the federal government’s absence, but more must be done,” Abbot’s statement concluded.
“By declaring a state of disaster in these counties, Texas will have more resources and strategies at our disposal to protect landowners and enforce all federal and state laws to combat criminal activities stemming from the border crisis. Working together with local law enforcement, the state will continue to take robust and meaningful action to keep our communities safe.”
Abbott has been one of the Biden administration’s most persistent critics on the issue of illegal immigration. Last month, he accused the president of abandoning “the rule of law” at the Texas border.
“Our state legislature, they allocated about $800 million every two years for the state to pay for this [border security],” Abbott told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” on May 2.
“This year, because of the extended time that we will have the National Guard on the border, it likely — will clearly — exceed a billion dollars for the state to have to secure the United States of America.”

Last week, Abbott announced plans to enact legislation criminalizing the manufacture or delivery of fentanyl, a powerful and often deadly opioid.
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and Dr. Judy Mikovits have both been recent guests on LondonReal.tv, and interviewed by Brian Rose. LondonReal.tv recently had to develop their own video platform to beat the Facebook and Google YouTube censorship, as Brian Rose frequently interviews doctors and scientists the corporate media and Big Tech desperately want to censor. Dr. Mikovits was the first one interviewed, and during the course of that interview, Brian Rose asked her about the COVID-19 vaccine that is being fast-tracked, with some pharmaceutical companies saying they will have a vaccine by this fall. Dr. Mikovits discusses the absurdity of giving a COVID-19 vaccine to healthy people who would already most likely have natural immunity. She states: “So now you’re going to inject an agent, into every cell in the body. I just can’t even imagine a recipe for anything other than what I would consider mass murder on a scale where 50 million people will die in America from the vaccine.” About a week after Brian Rose interviewed Dr. Mikovits, he did a show with Dr. Sherri Tenpenny. He mentioned Dr. Mikovits’ prediction that if we went full steam ahead with this new COVID vaccine that 50 million people would die, and asked Dr. Tenpenny if she agreed. Not only did Dr. Tenpenny say she agreed with Dr. Mikovits’ prediction of deaths in the U.S. from a COVID vaccine, but she stated that there would also be many who are injured by the vaccine who might wish they were dead: “There are some things worse than death.”

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.
The Biden Administration is still firm in its stance that the crisis at the southern border is in fact not a crisis, according to The Western Journal.
However, Tennessee and Kentucky have both found loads of people, including children, being flown into McGhee Tyson Airport in Knoxville, Tennessee.
“The crisis is too big to ignore and is now spilling over the border states into all of our states,” the governors wrote.s
“The cause of the border crisis is entirely due to reckless federal policy reversals executed within your first 100 days in office.”
“The rhetoric of the Biden Administration and the rollback of critical agreements with our allies have led to the inhumane treatment of tens of thousands of children and undermined a fragile immigration system.”
Amid an ongoing humanitarian crisis at our southern border that President Joe Biden’s administration still tries to assure us is not, in fact, a crisis, mysterious drops of busloads of migrants, including children, are being reported deep in the U.S. interior.
As you can imagine, Americans are starting to ask questions.
Early Friday morning, local news channels in Tennessee and Kentucky discovered that a busload of people, including children, had been flown into McGhee Tyson Airport in Knoxville, Tennessee, before being bused into southern Kentucky.
The children were loaded onto two buses from a flight that Knoxville-based WVLT-TV learned had originated in Long Beach, California.
An emergency facility at the Long Beach Convention Center is currently housing hundreds of illegal immigrant children displaced from other facilities accused of maintaining poor, unsafe conditions.
WVLT followed one bus up I-75 as it crossed into Whitley County, Kentucky, and observed the other head south from Knoxville, WKYT-TV in Lexington, Kentucky, reported.
It was unclear where they were going.
The stations reported they contacted the Tennessee-based charter company operating the buses, but when they asked about the mysterious migrant caravan, the company hung up, WKYT reported.
They also reached out to the offices of Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear, a Democrat, and Republican U.S. Reps. Hal Rogers and Andy Barr. The governor’s office response, if any, was unclear in the report. The offices of the two Kentucky congressmen said they were looking into the matter, according to WKYT.
Earlier this month, GOP lawmakers demanded answers from the Biden administration when multiple flights of unaccompanied migrant minors arrived over one week in Chattanooga, Tennessee, overnight, at Wilson Air Center.
Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn said in a statement to WRCB that her office had received no information from the Biden administration on these mysterious middle-of-the-night flights.
In another Twitter post days later, Lee wrote that the Biden administration had “emboldened one of the worst trafficking crisis we’ve seen” while refusing to give information to the states affected by it.
What is going on with these children, and why is this the second time they appear to have been mysteriously flown into Tennessee on multiple occasions?
There have already been plenty of concerns raised about what is happening with these children behind closed doors.
It’s time the administration answer for what it has caused — and what it’s doing about it now, apparently in the shadow of night.
