In a recent Fox News interview, Austin, Texas Governor Greg Abbott shared his thoughts on President Biden. Maria Bartiromo was the host of the “Broken Boarder Crisis” broadcast on Fox Nation.

Governor Abbott said President Biden changed several policies that President Trump had implemented while he was in office. They include:

  • building the wall
  • “Remain in Mexico” policy
  • Title 42
  • ending catch and release

Because of the changes, Governor Abbott has implemented Operation Lone Star to use the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety to capture migrants crossing the border.

Governor Abbott said:

"When we have open border policies like what Biden has allowed, every town and city in the United States is a border community."

On Fox Nation, Governor Abbott added:

"The Biden administration, border patrol, they were dropping these migrants off in these small, local communities that were incapable in dealing with the large number of migrants. They talked about maybe bussing these migrants to San Antonio. I said, ‘Don’t do that. I have a better idea. We’re going to put them on buses and send them all the way to Washington, D.C.'"
"The more they see the numbers rise, the more they are going to be asking the federal government for assistance and it’s going to create a situation for the Biden administration where they are trying to help these liberal coastal cities in the northeast deal with the immigration system while they are not helping the state of Texas and that will just cause the rest of America, and especially Texans, to grow more furious with the Biden administration."

Abbott said:

"The Biden administration... has to realize exactly the chaos they have created and correct it.”

Governor Abbott told Bartiromo:

"They really don’t care. As kind of what you were suggesting earlier... they are trying to bury their heads in the sand about all of this and most of America really is not understanding the severity of the problem that we are dealing with... We are trying to expose to the United States, in all corners of the country, exactly how catastrophic the Biden administration has made the border."

Governor Abbott added that the migrants crossing the border gives people in Washington, D.C., and New York a small glimpse of what is going on in Texas. He wants to educate more leaders across the country about what Texas is dealing with in this border crisis.
