Texas Governor Taking Action To Secure Southern Border
The Biden Administration has invested BILLIONS of American taxpayer money to defend foreign nations while completely failing to protect our own borders. Today Texas Governor Abbott signed executive order No. GA-41, “to secure the border in the wake of the federal government’s inaction.”
