NEWNow you can take heed to Fox Information articles!
With Texas persevering with to ship migrant buses to sanctuary cities and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis dealing with political backlash for sending two planes to Martha’s Winery, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick claimed the state will “hold these buses coming,” and teased laws that might ease the disaster’ “monetary burden” and “invasion of our state,” on “Fox & Friends Weekend” Saturday.
LT. GOV. DAN PATRICK: I am severe about this. The legislators are severe about this. The folks of Texas are severe about it. The opposite factor I might wish to do, we’re spending, by the way in which, to place this in perspective to all these whiny infants up in these blue states, ‘Oh, that is such a disaster.’ We usually spend $400 million a yr on border safety. We’re spending over $4 billion of Texas taxpayer cash, cash we might spend on well being care, on training, on extra roads, no matter it could be, $4 billion a yr. We’ve our Nationwide Guard there on the border. This is a financial burden on us. However most significantly, it is an invasion of our state. I’ve stated it for a very long time, I am not shy in regards to the phrase. However we have now to do that the appropriate manner. However I will even suggest that since we’re spending a lot cash, I might like to rent each Border Patrol agent on the border. Each one in all them. There’s about 8,000. We are able to afford to do it, rent them and make a brand new state border guard in order that Joe Biden does not have one particular person left. And by the way in which, the Border Patrol brokers are heroes in my e-book. They hate working for this man. I feel they love working for Texas…
I’ve at all times requested this query and on this present earlier than, precisely what’s Biden’s reply after we say, the place do these folks go? The place do they really go? How do they stay? Do they transfer in with any person? We won’t put a 15-year-old within the fourth grade in the event that they’re two or three grade ranges behind. The place do they get their well being care providers or emergency rooms? What do they do for working? They do not have a authorized allow. So they have been dumping folks in America for a very long time, a very long time. And now Texas is saying, we’re preventing again. We will ship them to your neighborhood and we’ll keep those buses coming till lastly this administration wakes up. And, we’ll move laws subsequent session that may hopefully get us to the Supreme Courtroom, the place this Supreme Courtroom can rule that Texas and everybody else has a proper to guard their residents, after which we will do it.
