Governor Abbott Fires Back, Says if Biden Punishes Border Patrol Agents He Will Hire Them to Secure the Border


Instead of closing the southern border, Joe Biden is criticizing U.S. Border Patrol agents.

Governor Greg Abbott of Texas quickly fired back at Biden, saying he would hire border patrol agents if they are at risk of being fired by the Biden administration.

Abbott appeared on Fox News with host Chris Wallace.

Abbott recently moved hundreds of state police officers to the border due to illegal migration.

Abbott says that both Biden and Alejandro Mayorkas, who is Biden’s Department Homeland Security Secretary, have been “in dereliction of duty.”

Biden and Mayorkas have “abandoned any pretense of securing the sovereignty of either Texas or the United States by having these open border policies,” Abbott argued.

“That’s exactly what the Biden administration could do if they wanted to,” Abbott continued. “But Chris, it’s the kind of thing that Texas is going to have to continue to do in addition to the other policies that you did not announce and that is, as opposed to catch and release, Texas has imposed a policy where we are going to arrest and jail people who come in across the border for trespassing into areas into the state of Texas.”

“First, they wouldn’t have been in that situation h ad the Biden administration enforced the immigration laws and secured the border in the first place,” Abbott said.

“Second, as you know, Chris, the person who took those pictures said that the characterization that the Democrats have made about the Border Patrol using them as whips, whipping people, coming across the border is false. They were simply maneuvering horses.”

Abbott said that he was doing it “because the Biden administration is refusing to do its duty to enforce the laws of the United States.”

Texas “in no position other than for us to step up and do what we have to do,” Abbott explained.

“But the last thing I will tell you is what the President said going after the Border Patrol, who were risking their lives and working so hard to try to secure the border, if he takes any action against them whatsoever, I have worked side by side with those Border Patrol agents,” Abbott continued.

“I want them to know something, if they are at risk of losing their job, got a president who is abandoning his duty to secure the border, you have a job in the state of Texas. I will hire you to help Texas secure our border.”

Partial transcript:

WALLACE: A number of people have been, Democrats especially, have expressed outrage over those Border Patrol officers on horseback, who were at the border and seem to be trying to block Haitians pretty aggressively from coming across the border. Here was President Biden on all of that this week.

WALLACE (continued): Governor, even if you think that those officers are being scapegoated, are you at all troubled by the images of these officers on horseback, very aggressively, pushing back on the Haitian immigrants coming across?

ABBOTT: Several quick points first, they wouldn’t have been in that situation had the Biden administration enforced the immigration laws and secured the border in the first place. Second, as you know, Chris, the person who took those pictures said that the characterization that the Democrats have made about the Border Patrol using them as whips, whipping people, coming across the border is false. They were simply maneuvering horses.

ABBOTT (continued): But the last thing I will tell you is what the President said — going after the Border Patrol, who were risking their lives and working so hard to try to secure the border — if he takes any action against them whatsoever, I have worked side by side with those Border Patrol agents. I want them to know something, if they are at risk of losing their job, got a president who is abandoning his duty to secure the border, you have a job in the state of Texas. I will hire you to help Texas secure our border.
