AUSTIN, TX – Gov. Greg Abbott confirmed on Monday that since the Biden administration has taken over no one has reached out to the Texas Governor.
"The president hasn't called, the vice-president hasn't called," said Gov. Greg Abbott on the "Ruthless" podcast on Jun. 14. "The only person I've talked to is some folks in the department of homeland security and that was a long time ago."
Abbott claims that Texas feels like a frontier outpost and that to the Biden Administration the Texas Mexico border doesn't exist. "As we are talking today Texas has the ninth largest economy in the world," said Abbott. "and they are acting like we are some kind of frontier outpost that they completely ignore."
This is coming after Vice President Kamala Harris was caught lying on National Broadcast News claiming she has visited the border.
Gov. Abbott commented on the interview pointing out that the border situation is no laughing matter.
"It's reprehensible that we have the Czar of the United States Kamala Harris laughing, literally laughing, about going to the border," said Abbott. "It's like a third world country where these farmers and ranchers are living. Where their lives are on the line every single day and you know what. The Biden administration could care less somebody has got to step up for these people and that's the governor of Texas."
Abbott's plan on stopping the illegal alien invasion is for Texas to construct a border wall. First they will build a fence across the border and then will build the wall. Abbott also shared on the podcast that there the state will accept private funding for the construction of the wall.
He ensured that more details will be released regarding the wall later this week.
