Abbott Signs $2 Billon Funding Bill to Increase Border Security


AUSTIN, TX ––As an unprecedented number of migrants gather along the Texas border, Governor Abbott signed a new bill that will increase security funding.

“It is the federal government’s job to secure our border, bopen-doorden administration has failed to do its job, so Texas is stepping up to do what the federal government is supposed to do," said Abbott.

The nearly $2 billion bill will include funds to continue the construction of the border wall. This funding bill supplements the $1 billion allocated to border security earlier this year.

"These funds are needed because the Biden Administration's open door policy has opened the flood gates to illegal immigration. To crime. To human trafficking. To drug smuggling," said Abbott. "These funds will help the Texas of Public Safety arrest more people at the border. They will help the National Guard to secure the Texas border. They will increase the funding to build the border wall."

All the people in del rio are waiting on the mexico side of the bridge for processing, which is what you people said you wanted. Why don't you people just admit you don't want them here at all?

Okay, my last geography lesson was apparently a little too tough for you to grasp. We won't talk about towns and states very much this time. I understand how too much info overwhelms you. We will try a different approach, now pay attention. There is a river (a long trench with water in it) it's called the Rio Grande. The Rio Grande is the border between the US and Mexico. Apparently some unintelligent people believe each end of the international bridge is the border. I know this is a lot to take in but, try and focus. The middle of the Rio Grande (the same river we talked about earlier) is the border. If a person wades to the north side of the river they are standing in the United States. The international bridge is much longer than the river is wide. That means there is a lot of dry land under the bridge that is in the USA. I know there are a lot of big words here but, maybe a friend (if you have one) can help you understand all this.

One more thing, you stated ( All the people in del rio are waiting on the mexico side). I could be wrong but, I don't believe Del Rio extends into Mexico.

(Why don't you people just admit you don't want them here at all?)


They are trying to come here legally. You know I meant that you people don't want immigrants at all, legal or not.

There you are, putting words in people's mouths again. That is a really bad habit you have. I guess you do that because you can't argue with the truths you are so often faced with. 

You people are the ones admitting you don't want immigrants at all. You gripe about them not waiting in Mexico, now they are and you people are still crying about them trying to come here, even though they are trying to do it legally.

You people cried Harris wasn't visiting the border, so she did and you cried she didn't visit the right places. You cried that the vaccine wasn't FDA approved, now it is and you still refuse to take it and are making up new excuses. It goes on and on. You republicans are never happy, so you have to attempt to make everyone around you miserable.

You seem upset. Take slow deep breaths and try to calm yourself. Maybe go play some more video games or something. You should stay off the liberal websites for a while to let your head clear. I hear certain types of people are addicted to those. Since you enjoy fantasy and unreal worlds, you should try the Disney channel.

Not even the Disney channel or Hello Kitty Island Adventure can lift me up from this pure rage I am feeling right now.
