On Thursday, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent presidential candidate, declared his endorsement of Governor Greg Abbott (R-Texas) and his endeavors to fortify the southern border, in contrast to the stance taken by the administration of President Joe Biden.
Kennedy disseminated a statement attributed to Texas Governor Abbott, wherein he asserted his prerogative to fortify his state’s borders in the face of federal opposition and claimed that the Biden administration had cornered border states.
“Texas is right. Biden’s failure to secure the border leaves states no choice but to take matters into their own hands. As President, I will end this humanitarian crisis once and for all. I will secure the border and destroy the business model of the drug cartels. A country without borders is not a country at all.” Kennedy said.
“President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border. Instead of upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the Biden Administration has attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect American citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.” he continued.
“We stand in solidarity with our fellow Governor, Greg Abbott, and the State of Texas in utilizing every tool and strategy, including razor wire fences, to secure the border. We do it in part because the Biden Administration is refusing to enforce immigration laws already on the books and is illegally allowing mass parole across America of migrants who entered our country illegally.” Kennedy concluded.
