As Republican governors circle the wagon around Texas, President Biden on Saturday doubled down on a reluctant agreement to secure the southern US border – but only if if Congress passes a bipartisan bill that would also allocate funds for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, and would still allow as many as 150,000 illegal crossings per month!
“If that bill were the law today I’d shut down the border right now and fix it quickly and bring a bipartisan bill that would be good for America and help fix our broken immigration system and allow speedy access for those who deserve to be here,” Biden said, according to Fox News’
Except, as many have pointed out, Biden doesn’t need Congress, or the bill, to do that right now… (Continue to full article)

GOP Governors Have Already Sent Troops to Texas Amid ‘Civil War’ Fears
Multiple Republican-led states began sending personnel and resources months ago to combat increased migrant encounters at the U.S.-Mexico border, with one state saying “nothing is off the table” as tensions bubble between Texas Governor Greg Abbott and the Biden administration.

Monday’s decision in which the U.S. Supreme Court sided with the Biden administration against Texas efforts to secure a lengthy section of southern border won’t change those efforts in the short term, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott vowed.
