Previously: Hundreds Rape US Border with Total Impunity
The Biden Administration had to walk back completely open borders, because it became logistically impossible. Basically, they allowed the crippled moron Greg Abbott to score some points by doing a bit of security on the Texas border, so now you have a bottleneck in California that slows things down a bit.
Everyone wins. Biden doesn’t have to keep walking back the open borders promise (remember Mayorkis having to come out and say “do. not. come.”?), and Abbott the cuckold failure who literally can’t even walk gets to pretend like he’s Ron DeSantis on wheels.
New York Post:
A Texas congressman wants to send the federal government a whopping $1.5 billion bill for money the US representative says his state has spent to secure its border with Mexico.
US Rep. Pat Fallon introduced the “Lone Star Reimbursement Act” last week. If passed, it would require the Department of Defense to reimburse Texas for the cost of Operation Lone Star, the state’s border security initiative.
LORD OF THE RINGS RACIST MEME DUMP TIME. I HOPE YOU LIKE OLD MEMES, KID.The bill notes that Operation Lone Star has resulted in the arrest of 134,000 immigrants. Another 16,700 illegal immigrants have been denied entry, according to the bill.
“As a border state, Texas is disproportionally impacted by illegal immigration, but we shouldn’t be forced to bear the entire financial burden when it comes to securing the entire country,” Rep. Fallon said in a press release. “Gov. Abbott launched Operation Lone Star because of a lack of action from this administration. Texas shouldn’t be punished for Biden’s mistake and my Lone Star Reimbursement Act recognizes this.”
The bill calls on the federal government to pay back Texas for its expenses during 2021 and 2022, however, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott already used federal dollars to pay for Operation Lone Star, according to the Texas Tribune. Abbott repurposed about $1 billion in federal coronavirus aid to help pay for Operation Lone Star.
(Seriously though, “elf-right” is eternally funny.)
