Border crisis getting worse

The border crisis just keeps getting worse.

Texas governor Greg Abbott announced over 20,000 illegals have poured into Texas since the beginning of the year and there is no sign the flood is going to slow down.

Since President Obama has virtually abandoned border security, the Texas governor has been forced to step up and defend his state’s border with Mexico.

Abbott said as governor, he has outlined a plan to secure the border: “I’m going to add more than 500 more Department of Public Safety officers, more Texas Rangers, more technology. We are coming out of our own pocket, Texas taxpayers’ pockets, to secure the border and doing the job that the federal government must do.”

Clearly, the federal government under Barack Obama has fallen down on the essential job of protecting the border. It’s outrageous that Texas taxpayers have to step up and do the job Obama won’t do.
