Former President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit the US-Mexico border with Greg Abbott on June 30, as the Texas Gov. says the public can donate to help build the state’s border wall. Meanwhile, 29 Utah sheriffs vow to safeguard Second Amendment and more top stories, and conservative politics.
Trump to Visit US-Mexico Border with Texas Governor
Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) held a “Border Security Summit” at which he said “the influx across the border is out of control” and slammed “the Biden administration” for a failure to “step up and do its job.” He has invited former President Donald Trump to visit the US-Mexico border in Texas on June 30. Yesterday, Trump announced he has accepted the invitation, the Daily Wire first reported.
“I have accepted the invitation of Texas Governor Greg Abbott to join him on an official visit to our Nation’s decimated Southern Border on Wednesday, June 30, 2021,” Trump said in a statement. “The Biden Administration inherited from me the strongest, safest, and most secure border in U.S. history and in mere weeks they turned it into the single worst border crisis in U.S. history. It’s an unmitigated disaster zone.”
“If this weren’t bad enough, Biden and Harris won’t even tour the scenes of the wreckage they created, or come down and visit with the Border Patrol and ICE heroes risking their lives to defend our Nation at a time when the White House is doing everything it can to make their job totally impossible,” Trump added. “What Biden and Harris have done, and are continuing to do on our border, is a grave and willful dereliction of duty.”
Public Can Donate To Help Build Texas Border Wall, Gov Says
Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) held a “Border Security Summit” where he announced the state will be allocating part of its $1 billion physical year budget toward resuming wall construction along its southern border started by President Trump.
Abbott announced he will be creating a way for the public to donate to help fund the border wall, during a podcast interview with Ruthless, as reported by The Hill. Abbott added that the public donations will have “great transparency,” saying “everyone will know every penny in, every penny out,” and that the fund will be handled by his office, the Daily Wire reported.
According to the 2021 “May Southwest Border Land Encounters” report released on last week by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials, agents apprehended 27,890 migrants in the Del Rio sector, a 1,118 percent increase from a year earlier, Breitbart reported.
