Illegal immigration is costing Texas taxpayers billions of dollars. With its county governments, law enforcement and medical personnel strapped, responding to the surge of illegal immigrants flooding into Texas, county judges and the governor issued disaster declarations.
Counties first filed disaster declarations April 21, followed by the state’s disaster declaration on May 31. Texas filed a federal emergency declaration, requesting assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), specifically requesting supplemental federal assistance to respond to the exorbitant costs the state is picking up to deal with illegal border crossings into Texas.
FEMA denied the request Sept. 30. Federal disaster designation enables states to receive federal funds for a range of services as well as funding for county needs.
Gov. Greg Abbott said Texas will appeal FEMA’s denial.
Abbott requested federal aid Sept. 20, arguing that the federal government’s failure to enforce immigration laws, and failure to halt illegal crossings on federal property, the sole jurisdiction of the federal government, created substantial burdens on local and state resources. The failure of the federal government to intervene led to a surge of more than 16,000 migrants at the Del Rio International Bridge for several days, Abbott said.
“President Biden has turned his back on Texans living along the border, and FEMA’s refusal to declare a federal emergency at the border puts their health, safety, and property at risk,” Abbott said in a statement. “The State of Texas is appealing this detrimental decision by FEMA because the Biden Administration’s refusal to solve the crisis at our border has led to a strain on local, state, and federal resources. The surge of over 16,000 migrants at the Del Rio International Bridge is just one of the most recent examples of the federal government’s failure to take action.”
Border Patrol agent Jon Anfinsen, president of the national union’s Del Rio chapter, told The Washington Examiner that it was Texas state troopers (DPS) who helped hold the line under the bridge.
“Literally, we could not have any semblance of control down here without DPS,” Anfinsen said. “DPS has thankfully come out here and helped us out dramatically. We literally could not […]
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
