  1. State governments have no jurisdiction over any matter related to national borders or immigration. All these hillbilly white trash racists need to sit down somewhere and STFU.

  2. The Border Agents turning their backs on that appointed fool is a slap in the face, now if it could happen to that doddering old fool in D.C. He believes these gangster age males he’s allowing into the country will vote for him? What a moron

  3. What do you think the fool in charge thought about the video of all the gangster age males being sent to a closed airport in the middle of the night? I’m sure the contractor won’t get another flight. All he has to do now is write a book and hit the news shows.

  4. Abbott needs to be working to address the issues Texans care about. Disbanding ERCOT, addressing climate change, expanding medicaid, protecting public health. No one but the white supremacists and white nationalist filth care a damn about the border. We need all the immigrants we can let in legally for the work force to keep the economy churning along. Abbott can do nothing about international borders or immigration.

    1. Governor Abbott is doing a good job and will get reelected in a landslide nitwit. Most Texans are against illegal immigration, the global warming hoax, expanding socialist welfare programs, bogus gun control, preserving voting integrity and most of all opposing the Senile Joe leftist agenda.

      1. I agree that Abbott will get re-elected. Beto announced and then mysteriously stopped campaigning. I don’t think he really wanted the job. Also Texans notoriously vote against their own best interests and have since Ann Richard’s was governor.

        1. Beto is still campaigning nitwit. He just raised $7 million in contributions. The media is just not paying much attention to him. But idiots like you will still vote for him.
