The Biden administration wants you to pay no attention to that mess on the border.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, ordered a shutdown on Thursday of six points of entry on his state’s border due to an overwhelming surge in migrants. He then reversed the decision hours later, saying in a statement that President Joe Biden “has now flip-flopped to a different strategy that abandons border security and instead makes it easier for people to cross illegally and for cartels to exploit the border.”
It’s not hard to see why Abbott wanted to take drastic action.
Photos and videos of the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas, show thousands of migrants—mostly from Haiti—clustered at the border.
