Huffines Condemns Greg Abbott for Cowering to Joe Biden, Surrendering Texas to Illegals
DALLAS, TX, September 17, 2021—As the disaster at the Texas Border continues to worsen, especially in Del Rio where thousands of Haitian and other immigrants have overwhelmed border security personnel, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott continues to cower before the federal government.
Just yesterday, Abbott asked permission from the federal government to shut down six points of entry. When they refused, he surrendered. Conservative Republican candidate for governor Don Huffines issued the following statement:
“Texans can’t afford to have a coward like Greg Abbott in the governor’s office while illegal aliens invade and flood our state. Texans can’t afford a governor who surrenders rather than take steps to safeguard the lives, liberties, and properties of the citizens he was elected to serve.”
Huffines further added:
“Texans deserve a governor who won’t ask for permission from the federal government to secure the border. When I am governor, I will act immediately to engage the Texas Military, DPS, and other necessary personnel to secure the border, finish the wall, and shut down the ports of entry to commercial traffic until Mexico works as a good neighbor to combat the cartels and prevent illegal crossings.”
Don Huffines is a proud fifth-generation Texan, husband, father, grandfather, and self-made entrepreneur. A committed conservative, Huffines is fighting to safeguard Texans’ elections, phase out property taxes, and secure the border once and for all. Huffines is challenging Gov. Greg Abbott from the right in the Texas Republican primary. Texans deserve leadership. No excuses.
