TALLAHASSEE, Florida —In support of Texas, Attorney General Ashley Moody is strongly pushing the federal government to uphold immigration laws for public safety or allow states to protect their borders. More than six million illegal immigrants—roughly the combined population of Iowa and Utah—have crossed the southern border since President Biden took office.
However, the Biden Administration has deliberately exacerbated the situation, which is far worse than ignoring the unparalleled assault at the southern border, which includes record levels of illegal immigration, a surge in lethal drugs, an influx of human trafficking, and an increase in interactions with people on terror watchlist.
Texas’s border defense cables were severed more than 20 times in a single month by Border Patrol personnel operating under the direction of the Biden administration. In one instance, the Border Patrol even brought in over 300 illegal aliens by raising the fence with a forklift.
States have taken action to safeguard their citizens as a result of the Biden Administration’s failure to fulfill its duties and secure the border. Texas’s border defense wires cut down on unauthorized border crossings by more than two-thirds, according to a federal district court ruling. These walls shield not only Floridians and the rest of the country from the millions of illegal border crossings but also Texans.
“Texas is fighting for the sovereignty of their state and this nation,” Attorney General Ashley Moody declared. I’m sending a message to Biden and Mayorkas, along with 25 other state attorneys general: if you can’t bring yourself to uphold the law, step aside so the states can.
To prevent the invasion, Attorney General Moody and a group of 26 other states demand that the Biden administration either uphold the laws securing the southern border or give states like Texas the authority to halt it on their own.
Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming are among the states whose attorneys general have signed the letter with Attorney General Moody. The letter was signed by the Arizona State Legislature as well.
