Bypassing Biden: Texas’ Gov. Abbott Signs Agreement


On April 16th Governor Greg Abbott signed his 4th memorandum of understanding in three days with another Mexican state Governor as part of his dedication to protecting Texas’ shared border with Mexico. The finalizing came as a 4th bus transferring illegal immigrants released by the Biden administration into Texas reached Washington, getting there early that Saturday morning.

Abbott satisfied Friday with Tamaulipas Gov. Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca in Weslaco, Texas. They signed a memorandum of understanding developed to prevent illegal immigration from Mexico to Texas and enhance the circulation of industrial traffic throughout the worldwide bridge.

The contracts were reached within a week of Abbott purchasing improved assessments of industrial lorries as part of the state’s broadened border security efforts through Operation Lone Star. The examinations caused significant stockpiles, demonstrations by Mexican industrial truck drivers, cartel operatives setting fire to cars, and industrial traffic being ground to a stop.

In spite of criticism of Abbott’s strategy, within a week, an agreement was reached with three  Mexican Governors in states where international bridges link Texas and Mexico.

“Border governors can achieve results when we work together and put the safety of our constituents first,” Abbott said. “I am grateful for the partnership of Governor Cabeza de Vaca as we work to secure our border.”

Since Cabeza de Vaca provided such a comprehensive strategy to protect the border, Abbott stated the Texas Department of Public Safety would go back to its previous method of arbitrarily browsing industrial automobiles coming through ports of entry.

“While President [Joe] Biden ignores the ongoing crisis at the border, the state of Texas will continue to work with heads of state in Mexico to further strengthen our comprehensive border strategy,” he said.

On April 14, Abbott signed memorandas of comprehending with Chihuahua Gov. María Eugenia Campos Galván and Coahuila Gov. Miguel Ángel Riquelme Solís in Austin. On April 13, he signed Texas’ very first arrangement with Nuevo León Gov. Samuel Alejandro García Sepúlveda in Laredo.

The historical arrangements with Nuevo León, Chihuahua, Coahuila, and Tamaulipas were reached in anticipation of an increased, cartel-facilitated smuggling operation anticipated to happen as soon as Title 42 ends. The Biden administration revealed it was ending the general public health authority May 23.

The arrangements were likewise reached after Mexican cartel operatives set fire to 3 tractor-trailers near the Pharr International Port of Entry on Wednesday. The Tamaulipas federal government validated a group of males set fire to the cars and its state police tracked them utilizing security cams and detained them.

The men are thought to be part of the Reynosa faction of the Gulf Cartel. The Gulf Cartel mainly manages the trafficking of individuals and drugs in the Rio Grande Valley Customs and Border Patrol Sector, which along with Texas– Mexico border extends from the Gulf of Mexico to Lake Falcon in Starr County.

The sector is among the busiest at the southern border. Its Border Patrol representatives are accountable for patrolling over 320 river miles, 250 seaside miles, and 19 counties corresponding to over 17,000 square miles.

The deals reached with the Mexican state governments “signal yet another historic step taken by the state of Texas to solve the border crisis, keep our communities safe, negotiate with our partners in Mexico, and fill in the gaps left by the inaction of the Biden Administration,” Abbott said. “Until President Biden decides to fulfill his constitutional duty to secure the border, we will continue to do whatever it takes to protect the safety and security of all Texans.”

Texas likewise is continuing to bus illegal immigrants launched by the Biden administration into Texas to Washington. The 4th bus showed up Saturday early morning, April 16.

At a press conference with Campos Galván, Abbott stated, “The president has actually never concerned the border of Texas and seen the turmoil that he’s triggered. And if he’s not going to concern the border, we’re going to take the border to him.

“It’s not just the president. It’s members of Congress also. It’s Congress that’s specifically authorized by the United States Constitution to take action on this. And Congress has not taken action on this either. This is sending a message to both the president and Congress that Texas is tired of being the unloading dock for illegal immigrants.

“The new unloading dock is going to be Washington, D.C.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki informed press reporters at a press instruction a number of hours after the very first bus showed up Wednesday,  “It’s nice the state of Texas is helping them get to their final destination as they await the outcome of their immigration proceedings.”
