Governor Abbott statement on President Biden’s border order

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Reaction continues after President Joe Biden’s signing of an executive order that some are saying essentially legalizes the millions of illegal immigrants in the United States.

Further, some critics say the executive action signed on Tuesday allows thousand more illegal immigrants to cross the southern border each day.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott offered his response:

“Today’s announcement is nothing but a smokescreen for President Biden’s failed open border policies. This executive order will do nothing but further an an invasion into our country, inviting thousands of unvetted illegal immigrants to cross the border every single day—the exact opposite of shutting down the border,” said Governor Abbott. “Since his first day in office, President Biden dismantled all of his predecessor’s successful border policies, encouraging millions of illegal immigrants—including dangerous criminals and terrorists—into our country.”
