Gov Greg Abbott is bringing up something that the Biden/Harris administration and the mainstream media is trying to keep a lid on. And that is the rape of children going on in the detention centers.
Abbot blasted Joe Biden and he blames the rape problem on Biden’s open border policies. Biden’s policies have opened a floodgate. Just in August, they detained over 20,000 children. And it’s going to get worse.
“Earlier today, The Texas Health and Human Services Commission and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services separately received tips that allege child abuse and neglect at the federal government’s Child and Migrant facility at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio behind me. “
“These problems are a by-product of President Biden’s open border policies and the lack of planning for the fallout from those disastrous policies.”
“Complaints that were sent to these state agencies include the following four things: Children at this facility are being sexually assaulted. Second, there are not enough staff to safely supervise the children at this facility. Third, some children in this facility are not eating throughout the day. And fourth, children with COVID are not being physically separated from children without COVID.”
One of the detention centers is at 729% capacity so it is difficult to separate the sexes. One report even said that brothers and sisters are engaging in sex. But Biden/Harris continue to say there is no crisis at the border.
Nancy Pelosi praised Biden saying Trump’s policies are causing the surge and not Biden’s open borders policies. That is patently absurd. Anyone who thinks this is not a crisis is either illiterate or they just don’t care.
“In short, this facility is a health and safety nightmare,” Abbott charged. “The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children. To end this abuse, the Biden administration must immediately shut down this facility.”
“The children who are in this facility should be moved to other federal-run facilities where the federal government has space, personnel, and resources to ensure their safety.”
“While we wait on the Biden administration to act, I am directing the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers to immediately begin investigating these allegations. That investigation will be headed by Richard Henderson; he is the Senior Texas Ranger lieutenant taking the Department of Public Safety lead on this investigation.”
Don’t mess with Texas. Gov Greg Abbott is activating the National Guard and state troopers in order to combat Joe Biden’s open bo0rders policies. They will work on stopping human smuggling and the drug trade along the border as Biden to in essence defund ICE and the Border Patrol.
Texas is one of the most affected states from illegal immigration especially since Biden refuses to give them tests for COVID-19.
By not testing them, Biden could be sending hundreds or thousands of COVID-positive people throughout the country. If he is willing to do this, just how serious is he in fighting the virus?
This is a super spreader event, especially since the detention centers are packed and not observing social distancing at all. Fortunately for the people of Texas, they keep electing Republicans who actually take action.
He is ordering the deployment of air, ground, marine, and tactical border security assets to high threat areas. That pretty much covers every way smugglers can get into the country.
This will drive more illegals into California where people and businesses are fleeing from the high tax state that spends billions on illegal aliens. But what happens when they have more illegals than taxpayers?
“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration. Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans. We will surge the resources and law enforcement personnel needed to confront this crisis.”
Earlier this week, Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) announced that Border Patrol agents apprehended approximately 10,000 migrants in the Rio Grande Valley Sector during a seven-day period ending on Wednesday, Breitbart Texas reported.
“We are weeks, maybe even days, away from a crisis on the southern border. Inaction is simply not an option,” Congressman Cuellar said in a written statement. “Our country is currently unprepared to handle a surge in migrants in the middle of the pandemic.”
In Brownsville, Texas, city officials said that six percent of the migrants being released at the bus station to obtain transportation into the U.S. interior are testing positive for COVID-19, Breitbart Texas reported. The Brownsville official said they do not have the authority to prevent those who test positive from boarding buses to travel into the U.S. interior. A worker at the bus station told Fox News they cannot ask passengers for proof of coronavirus test results before transit. Cuellar added, “I urge the Biden Administration to listen and work with the communities on the southern border who are dealing with the surge of migrants.”
The Texas Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the release of salon owner Shelley Luther, who was jailed for opening in violation of the state’s rules, as Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order retroactively eliminating jail time as a consequence for violating the state’s coronavirus restrictions.
The Texas salon owner that was put in jail for opening her salon because it violated lockdown orders is being released. The Texas Supreme Court ordered her release Thursday. Governor Abbott retroactively mandated that no citizens shall be arrested for violating the orders.
If business owners want to open their business they should be able to. And if people feel they are at risk going into that business then they have every right to stay away.
The Texas Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the release of salon owner Shelley Luther, who was jailed for opening in violation of the state’s rules, as Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order retroactively eliminating jail time as a consequence for violating the state’s coronavirus restrictions.
Shortly after Abbott’s announcement, the Supreme Court of Texas ordered Luther’s release. An attorney for Luther, who is with her at the jail, told Fox News they don’t know the timing yet of when she will be freed.
“Throwing Texans in jail who have had their businesses shut down through no fault of their own is nonsensical, and I will not allow it to happen,” Abbott said in a statement. “That is why I am modifying my executive orders to ensure confinement is not a punishment for violating an order. This order is retroactive to April 2nd, supersedes local orders and if correctly applied should free Shelley Luther.”
On Wednesday, Abbott, the state’s Attorney General Ken Paxton and Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick called for Luther’s release after she was jailed by Dallas County State District Judge Eric Moyé. The officials said he had abused his discretion and emphasized that the woman was keeping her business open in order to feed her family.
“As a mother, Ms. Luther wanted to feed her children,” Paxton said in a letter to the judge asking him to free her. “As a small business owner, she wanted to help her employees feed their children. Needless to say, these are laudable goals that warrant the exercise of enforcement discretion.”
On Thursday, Paxton praised the governor for ensuring that people would not be jailed for flouting the state’s coronavirus restrictions.
“I applaud Gov. Abbott’s decision to ensure that penalties for violating public health orders are reasonable and not excessive. All Texans are trying to get through this crisis together and no one should be put in jail unnecessarily,” he said.
Abbott said it was not just that as the state was reducing its prison populations because of the coronavirus that it was also throwing entrepreneurs in jail.
“It may also ensure that other Texans like Ana Isabel Castro-Garcia and Brenda Stephanie Mata who were arrested in Laredo, should not be subject to confinement,” Abbott said of the order. “As some county judges advocate for releasing hardened criminals from jail to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is absurd to have these business owners take their place.”
As with everything else in his too-long political career Joe Biden overdid it with calling all migrants to rally at our southern border. Sending the message out that there is such a thing as a free lunch our borders are flooded with multiple surges of southern American migrants whose only skills are taking freebies paid for by American taxpayer dollars and voting for Democrats in the future.
As the migrant facilities at our southern border are being thoroughly overwhelmed by the insane amount of migrants arriving, the Biden administration’s solution to the border crisis Biden created is to put the migrants up in hotels, and this of course will come at a colossal price tag to the American taxpayer. It always does and you’re not allowed to complain about it.
The Biden administration is planning to spend $86 million to rent hotel rooms to shelter 1,200 migrant family members who crossed the US-Mexico border, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials informed the uber leftist website Axios. The hotels in the border states of Texas and Arizona, for now, will lodge migrants for about six months, but “could be extended and expanded.”
Can you imagine the conversations going on between the migrants and their friends and families back home through their iPhones? “Yeah, these stupid Americans put us up in a hotel and they’re paying for it!”
A non-profit group called Endeavors of San Antonio are organizing the hotel arrangements claiming they connect ” vulnerable populations across the United States to a wide range of helpful services.” The non-profit’s website declares they offer: “Direct care, migrant wellness support, case management, home study and post-release services, staffing, and holistic programming for unaccompanied migrant children and families.”
The number of migrant families that attempted to cross the border skyrocketed in 2021 – thanks Uncle Joe! – climbing from 7,000 in January to over 19,000 in February according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Apparently word got out that the USA is open for their business. Other than voting for Democrats we don’t really yet know what other business the clowns in DC have for them.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas conceded this week that the US government is “on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years,” and they feel really good about that. A senior official with Immigrant and Customs Enforcement (ICE) echoed the sentiment.
Folks, what are we doing to our society? It’s not racist against “brown people” to worry about so many people from other societies being brought into our society in one felled swoop like this. The Biden administration is not only not testing these tens of thousands of paupers coming into our country for COVID-19 but they aren’t testing them for anything, because they don’t have the capacity to do so. Poll after poll shows the American people are not in favor of what’s going on and yet they are still being charged for the costs of it all.
On Saturday, DHS said it’s going to open yet another facility in Pecos, Texas that will house another 500 unaccompanied migrant children, and that they will expand the capacity to 2,000 kids whose parents sent them on the dangerous trek alone.
I’m sorry, but someone has to talk about the elephant in the room so I guess it will be me. Do we want the parents of children who they allowed to travel over a thousand miles by themselves to be a part of our society? Honestly, all bullschtein beside, would you trust these people to watch your kids? And you just know that eventually, the Woke Supremacists in the administration are going to give us a sob story about how gosh darn awful it is that these poor migrant children have to be here all alone without their parents and so we must pay for them to fly business class to America to reunite families that never should have been separated in the first place. Damn that Donald Trump! Yes, that’s how absurd this whole thing has gotten.
“While ORR has worked to build up its licensed bed capacity to almost 13,500 beds, additional capacity is urgently needed to manage both enhanced COVID-19 mitigation strategies and the increasing numbers of UC referrals from DHS,” a spokesperson for the Office of Refugee Resettlement said.
“I got notified about an hour ago from HHS, that they’re opening up a new unaccompanied minor facility in PECOS, which is in my district, out in West Texas. This facility is going to house between 500 to 2000, unaccompanied minors, it appears as if they’re targeting unused man camps. These are oil facilities where workers, temporary oil workers, house when they’re operating in the oil gas industry,” Representative Tony Gonzalez (R-Texas) told Fox News on Saturday. “There is no end in sight, I’m told there’s two other facilities, and they’re also looking at attending this crisis is getting out of control.”
Word went out that the Biden administration is going to send up to 3,000 unaccompanied teen migrants to live in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, for up to three months.
Folks, this is out of control. The simple solution right now is not to give band-aid fixes but to stop the hemorrhaging by making announcements that the American human pipeline has now closed. A report that came out earlier this month revealed that one facility is at 729 percent capacity and that the kids in cages have to take turns sleeping on the floor. The children are only allowed to take a shower once a week if they’re lucky.
This is better than the system designed under Trump? Give me a break.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott had a few words for the way the Biden administration has been handling the crisis at the border that Joe Biden himself created with crazy executive orders, a crisis that the Biden administration won’t even admit is a crisis calling it a challenge instead. They think you’re so stupid that you’ll believe it’s not really a crisis because they’re referring to it as a challenge.
“The Biden Administration has been an abject failure when it comes to ensuring the safety of unaccompanied minors who cross our border,” Abbott said in a statement. “The conditions unaccompanied minors face in these federally run facilities is unacceptable and inhumane.”
Remember all the lefties who screamed KIDS IN CAGES! KIDS IN CAGES! KIDS IN CAGES! for a year under the Trump administration? Where the heck are they now? Where’s AOC and her group of silly progressive Congresswomen? Remember when AOC said Trump created concentration camps at the border for illegal migrants? What’s going on right now under Biden is far worse than anything under Trump and yet we hear not a peep from the Squad.
“The Biden Administration has no excuse for subjecting these children to these kinds of conditions,” Abbott said. “President Biden’s refusal to address the border crisis is not only enabling criminal actors like human traffickers and smugglers, but it is exposing innocent unaccompanied children to illness and potentially unsafe living conditions. The administration must act now to keep these children safe, secure our border, and end this humanitarian crisis.”
“The Biden Admin. has turned a humanitarian crisis into a complete disaster,” Abbott wrote on Twitter. “They were unprepared for open border policies.”
Just as conservatives expressed concerns about Joe Biden letting as many illegal aliens into the country as possible, it has been discovered that two detention ce3nters in Texas have been overrun by the virus. The filthy and unsanitary conditions certainly don’t help any. The q1uestion is, how many infected people have been sent across the country and how many more will Biden send? How many will Biden have to kill before he sees the light?
Gov Greg Abbott has ordered an investigation into the detention centers but it may not do any good since Biden probably will refuse to cooperate. I wonder if that is part of Biden’s or his puppet master are sending these illegals to red states in order to kill off Republican voters. I know that sounds farfetched, but why are they not testing illegals when they are caught. How many flare-ups will result because of this?
With 100,000 illegals entering the United States a month, the whole country is rife for renewed COVID-19 pandemic. It is ridiculous that we are not testing incoming illegals for the virus, especially considering that Democratic governors were the architects of the Draconian lockdowns.
Besides the unsanitary conditions at the detention centers, it is also rumored that the drinking water could be bad at the facilities too.
“The administration has yet to provide answers that Texans deserve. So far this year, more than 11,000 minors have been apprehended crossing the border into Texas. Children crossing the border rose 60 percent from January to February to more than 9,400 in February.”
“How long will these children be here? What countries have they come from and what COVID variants have they been exposed to, are they being tested for COVID? If so, how is the administration handling those who test positive?”
Border officials have admitted that under the Biden administration, illegal aliens are being released into communities near the southern border without being tested for coronavirus.
Despite Republican-led calls for transparency, Democrats have largely remained silent on the growing crisis.
“America needs to know how these children, some are young children, how they are coming across the border, and who is it that is helping these children come across the border?” Abbott asked. “The Biden administration must also answer for enticing unaccompanied minors into inhumane conditions. Inhumane conditions, that expose these children to traffickers, to abuse and to terror.”
Democrats are running around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off trying to figure out the best way to spin the massive problems created at our southern border in just two short month’s time. Over the last week, there were some shocking reports that came out about President Joe Biden’s migrant facilities, things they used to make up about the Trump administration but are really happening now under Biden. Things like children going days without sunlight or showers, detainment centers maxing out, and over 700% capacity, children being denied being allowed to communicate with family members and immigration lawyers being denied access to the buildings. It all smells like the Biden administration is in over its head and there are no outrage mobs, no professional whiners like we saw day after day at the beginning of the Trump administration.
You know it’s really bad when even CNN starts reporting on it as a crisis and points out hows the Biden administration and other Democrats are desperately trying to avoid that term.
The Biden-created border situation became so bad that on Saturday it was announced that the administration was bringing in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help deal with the record number of unaccompanied minors attempting to enter the US.
On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used the talking point terminology to recognized that there is a “humanitarian challenge” at the border, but she went on to blame former President Donald Trump and climate change for the overflow of illegal immigration.
“The facts of these, there are more children, about 600, 700 more children, unaccompanied children coming over the border,” Pelosi said on ABC News’s “This Week.”
“This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us.”
Pelosi then switched it up by blaming Trump for the surge in illegal immigrants. The Trump administration fixed the immigration situation. Little kids were no longer dying traveling over a thousand miles to our borders. President Trump made deals with Mexico and Central American governments to help deal with the flow of migrants coming to the country, many of which would try to enter the country illegally, and when they got caught would immediately say they were seeking asylum because that’s the left-wing outfits like CAIR would tell them to do.
“What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they are working to correct that in the children’s interest,” Pelosi told host George Stephanopoulos. “I’m so pleased that the president, as a temporary measure, has sent FEMA to the border in order to help facilitate the children going from one — the 72-hour issue into where they are cared for as they are transferred into family homes or homes that are safe for them to be.”
Before Joe Biden, FEMA was never needed. The Democrats could have continued under Trump’s policies and allowed immigrants to come into the country legally, but that wouldn’t help Democrats for the 2022 midterm elections the way bringing in hundreds of thousands of migrants and then giving them and the up to 30+ million illegals already living in the United States full amnesty so that they can vote Democrat.
Pelosi again passed the blame to the Trump administration by saying, “So this, again, is a transition for what was wrong before to what is right.”
Pelosi’s idea of what is right is allowing anyone into the country with no COVID testing while forcing American citizens to wear masks and not be allowed to gather for the Fourth of July. They are insane.
“Of course, we have to also look to Central America, Mexico, and the rest. The corruption, the violence, all of that’s so bad,” Pelosi admitted, but then she pivoted to blaming climate change, and it’s important people understand this. The Democrats want to bypass the legal immigration system and get those unregistered Democrats settled into the country before the midterm elections, so they want to make it appear that there is a crisis situation going on in the migrant’s home countries to justify allowing them all in, but it’s not justifiable at all. There are no wars, no persecutions going on in Central American countries. There is no reason to accept all of these migrants other than for political gain for the Democratic Party. And you the taxpayer are funding all of it.
“My most recent trip to the Northern Triangle, that would be Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, you saw the impact of the climate change, mind you,” she claimed. “These people were leaving because of the drought. They couldn’t farm and they were seeking other ways to survive.”
Even if climate change were real in the sense that the lunatic fringe on the Left wants us to believe it’s still not our responsibility to owe anything at all to those people. That may sound harsh, but what’s harsher than a political party creating policies that will cause the people they are supposed to represent severe burdens in lost jobs, dropping wages and other facts of life that will be changed forever just so the Democrats can win elections? It’s monstrous when you think about it.
Thankfully there are still some sane people in Washington, DC.
Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) on Sunday blamed President Biden completely for what’s going on at the border.
“Empirically it is entirely. You can’t help but notice that the administration changes and there is a surge,” Cassidy told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. “When they think they can get in they begin sending their unaccompanied child on a train ride across Mexico where she may be kidnapped and trafficked, on the hope that they’re going to be waved through at the border.”
Representative Henry Cuellar (D-TX) said to Axios earlier this month, “You just can’t say, ‘Yeah, yeah, let everybody in’ — because then we’re affected down there at the border. The bad guys know how to market this.”
Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) declared that he was sending the National Guard to the US-Mexico border to deal with the border crisis.
“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” Abbott said.
In typical fashion, the Democrats have created another crazy situation that they have lost all control over and they are trying to blame anyone else without looking at their own incompetence, and you can see just how desperate they are when they blame Donald Trump, the man who solved the real immigration crisis which was allowing thousands of migrants to come in illegally and do nothing to stop them and deport the majority of them, and Trump fixed the system humanely using America First logic.
Democrats in DC are using the recent winter storm in Texas to attack Republicans by calling for investigations into how they handled the crisis and it’s all just to be able to push for their uber socialist climate change policies like the disastrous Green New Deal.
“Governor Abbott thought Texas could run an electrical grid that ignored the climate crisis,” Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer tweeted. “It was not resilient.”
It is insufferable to listen to these watermelons go on about climate change, which in reality has zero evidence that mankind is causing the climate to change, lying to the American people by trying to convince them that had the state of Texas written up a socialist policy to combat climate change then the freezing winter storm would never have struck the Lone Star state. Are these people for real?
Schumer then called for a federal investigation to look into how the Republican governor’s policies “have failed and exacerbated the winter storm crisis.”
By what authority does the federal government have to interfere in the state of Texas’ internal affairs? I think what’s really going on is that the Democrats don’t want the public to learn that green technologies like their wind turbines are just not ready for the real world yet. They’re trying to blame natural gas as the cause for the power failures but it was the wind turbans that froze and stopped producing electricity. Also, it has been reported that natural gas was being consumed at an over 400% increased rate at the time during the winter storm. Never so quickly have I seen so many so-called “news” outlets spread the lie that it wasn’t wind turbines but fossil fuel natural gas that was the sole cause of the recent problems in Texas. Leave it to the Democrats to politicize this in order to keep their socialist agenda alive. Like COVID, the Democrats have wanted to use climate change as a cudgel to control people’s lives.
Texas was rocked by a winter storm of historic proportions that left millions of residents without power due to large power outages. The AP reported that the winter storm and the aftermath of power outages led to the deaths of at least 80 people.
President Biden recently declared Texas a disaster, which automates the process for federal aid to pour into the state. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) delivered over 1 million meals to Texas and the Defense Department has delivered more than 4 million liters of water.
Former failed Senate and failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke placed blame on Republicans, saying “those in power have failed us.”
“As with Covid, a natural disaster has become far deadlier due to the inaction & ineptitude of Abbott and Texas’ Republican leadership,” he tweeted. “This didn’t have to happen and doesn’t have to continue.”
These Democrats have no soul. How many thousands of people have died of COVID-19 since Biden took office? Should be we blame Biden for all of them since that’s what they did to Trump? To blame a winter storm on the lack of socialism is the definition of stupid.
You have to hand it to Democrats. They turn their own disasters into someone else’s and they do it with a straight face. They are now claiming that the power outages in Texas could have been avoided if the state had a greater reliance on renewable sources. I guess these pinheads missed all the images of the wind turbines frozen and not able to turn.
Sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) put down her drink long enough to say that the House Energy and Commerce Committee is going to investigate with a special emphasis on looking “into it to see how things could have turned out better and will turn out better in the future.”
Committee Chairman Frank Pallone (D-NJ) said the committee would “investigate the Texas crisis further and we’ll see what other action we have to take.”
Do I detect revenge is coming to Texas for filing an election fraud lawsuit against three states that had more irregularities than the dying fart of a Gummy Bear?
“Ultimately, this episode underscores the importance of prioritizing clean and resilient energy infrastructure,” he said, according to The Hill.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott got the jump on Democrats exploiting the deaths of many Texans to push for socialist policies when he told Fox News that renewable sources failed in the state as well. The governor told Fox’s Sean Hannity that “this shows how the Green New Deal would be a deadly deal for the United States of America.”
“Texas is blessed with multiple sources of energy, such as natural gas and oil and nuclear – as well as solar and wind,” he said. “But you saw … our wind and our solar got shut down, and they were collectively more than 10% of our power grid.”
Abbott argued that fossil fuels are necessary “for the state of Texas as well as other states to make sure we are able to heat our homes in the wintertime and cool our homes in the summertime.”
This is what it’s going to be like for at least the next two years, that is if the Democrats don’t use voting machines in 2022 that will ensure they win no matter how totalitarian they become. They are going to exploit anything they can to push their socialist agenda while attacking Republicans for things like the weather. These people are sick.
National Guard troops who were moved into the nation’s Capitol, pretty much for Democrat-created hyperbolic theater were “banished” to a small parking garage after doing their duty to protect Washington, DC, in the aftermath of the Capitol building riots, have been allowed back into the US Capitol.
On Thursday, the Guard said in a statement, “Brig. Gen. Janeen Birckhead, Inauguration Task Force Commander confirms that troops are out of the garage and back into the Capitol building as authorized by the USCP (U.S. Capitol Police) Watch Commander and the troops will take their breaks near Emancipation Hall going forward.”
Fox News reported that because of the disgusting way the troops were treated the governors of Florida, New Hampshire, and Texas decided they were recalling their Guard members and bringing them home.
Images of the troops sitting around the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center garage floating around the Internet brought some outrage from lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who called the move “outrageous.” I’m just wondering if Schumer suddenly became outraged after it was reported that Donald Trump gave the troops permission to stay at the DC Trump International Hotel, and the Democrats could not have that.
Since the Democrats fixed the optics hoping their blunder will go away, the Trump International Hotel is still allowing law enforcement to stay in the hotel.
Yet some of the members of the National Guard when asked by reporters who put them in the garage situation said that they heard that “some senator” saw them inside the Capitol building and wanted to get rid of them because having military personnel there seemed unsightly.
Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), an Iraq War veteran, said in a tweet: “Just made a number of calls and have been informed Capitol Police have apologized to the Guardsmen and they will be allowed back into the complex tonight. I’ll keep checking to make sure they are.”
After midnight, she added: “Troops are now all out of the garage. Now I can go to bed.”
Capitol Police on Thursday had asked the National Guard to move their troops out of the building after they started using it to rest during their shifts to protect the very people who had them moved out, according to Major Matt Murphy a National Guard Bureau spokesman.
“As Congress is in session and increased foot traffic and business is being conducted, Capitol Police asked the troops to move their rest area,” Murphy said. “They were temporarily relocated to the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center garage with heat and restroom facilities.”
According to Fox News on Friday, Acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman argued against that assertion.
“I want to assure everyone that, with the exception of specific times on Inauguration Day itself while the swearing-in ceremonies were underway, the United States Capitol police did not instruct the National Guard to vacate the Capitol Building facilities,” Pittman said.
“And on Inauguration Day, the Guard was notified and encouraged to reoccupy the spaces in the Capitol and CVC at 2 p.m.,” she continued.
Pittman then added, “It was brought to our attention early today that facility management with the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Office Building reached out directly to the National Guard to offer use of its facilities.”
A National Guard Bureau spokesperson on Friday said, “We remain an agile and flexible force to provide for the safety and security of the Capitol and its surrounding areas. Our troops are going to hotel rooms or other comfortable accommodations at the end of their shifts.” What else are they going to say?
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) said he decided to bring his troops back home. The governor took to social media to make the announcement.
“Last night, I ordered our Adjutant General to bring Florida National Guard soldiers home from the National Capital Region.”
DeSantis also said on “Fox & Friends” that the giant effort to protect the Capitol was a “half-cocked mission at this point” pointing out that the Democrats started doing background checks of National Guard troops over their political ideology ahead of the inauguration. They didn’t even wait for Biden to be sworn in before they started insulting the troops.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R), who also had aired complaints about background checks for the troops and tweeted out his response to the insult.
“I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state. @TexasGuard“
New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu (R) has also said that he too is recalling his state’s National Guard.
“I’ve ordered the immediate return of all New Hampshire National Guard from Washington DC. They did an outstanding job serving our nation’s capital in a time of strife and should be graciously praised, not subject to substandard conditions. @NHNationalGuard“
The Capitol Police gave a statement on Friday claiming that it “immensely appreciates” the National Guard’s assistance. Then why did they move them into a cold parking garage? Because they were told to, probably by a Sergeant at Arms, who was told by either Chuck Schumer (D-NY) or Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), because the Sergeant at Arms from both chambers of Congress report to the House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader.
“The United States Capitol Police immensely appreciates the integral support of the U.S. National Guard in helping to secure the Capitol Complex leading up to, and including the Inaugural ceremony. The Department is grateful for their service and our strong partnership during this time,” it said.
Problems are already unfolding for Democrat Joe Biden who has treated to reverse the law and order that President Donald J. Trump set in to motion by strengthening a Wall on the Southern border and building up the Federal law enforcement of the border.
And already the Governor and the Attorney General of Texas have said they are ready with lawsuits to sue Biden when he moves in to hurt the state with his far-left and radical policies.
Ken Paxton, the Republican Attorney General posted on Twitter the following statement:
According to the Epoch Times:
“The Biden administration has signaled a left-leaning agenda on energy, taxes, immigration, health care, and other priorities. Biden has vowed to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord and take far-reaching steps on climate change, including seeking to cut greenhouse gas emissions by half by 2030 and effectively ending them by around 2050, sparking existential fears from the fossil fuel industry, a key economic pillar in Texas.
Biden has also proposed sweeping immigration reform that would create a pathway to citizenship for more than 11 million illegal immigrants, and plans to roll back Trump’s corporate tax cuts and raise income tax.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who—while serving as the state’s attorney general—famously proclaimed, “I go into the office, I sue the federal government, and I go home,” said on Jan. 16 that the Biden White House can expect a spate of legal challenges from the Lone Star State.
“A new crop of Texas-led lawsuits awaits Joe Biden’s White House,” Abbott wrote in a tweet on Jan. 16.
“Texas will take action whenever the federal government encroaches on states’ rights, or interferes with constitutional rights, or private property rights or the right to earn a living.”
Paxton posted one week ago that he had not dropped the Voter Integrity issues from the 2020 Presidential election:
“As your Attorney General, I will always prosecute anyone who tried to defraud the system. In Texas under my watch, this will NOT be tolerated. #ElectionIntegrity“
Governor Abbot wrote, “A new crop of Texas-led lawsuits awaits Joe Biden’s White House. Texas will take action whenever the federal government encroaches on state’s rights or interferes with constitutionally rights, or private property rights or the right to earn a living.”
Abbot already has some differences with Biden over issues surrounding the Southern Border of the United States between Mexico and Texas:
Fo News reported on a large caravan of foreigners who were moving to force themselves into American, feeling that Democrat Joe Biden was going to help them:
“A migrant caravan moving from Honduras toward the U.S. border called on the incoming Biden administration to honor their “commitments” to the migrants moving north, citing the incoming administration’s vow to ease Trump’s restrictions on asylum.
But on Sunday, an unnamed Biden transition official said that migrants hoping to claim asylum in the U.S. during the first few weeks of the new administration “need to understand they’re not going to be able to come into the United States immediately,” NBC News reports.
More than 1,000 Honduran migrants moved into Guatemala on Friday without registering as part of a larger caravan that left a Honduran city earlier in the day.
The Associated Press reported that they are hoping for a warmer reception when they reach the U.S. border, and a statement issued by migrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, on behalf of the caravan, said it expects the Biden administration to take action.
The Biden transition official, however, warned migrants against coming to the U.S. during the early days of the new administration, telling NBC that while “there’s help on the way,” now “is not the time to make the journey.”
“The situation at the border isn’t going to be transformed overnight,” the official told the outlet.
“We have to provide a message that health and hope is on the way, but coming right now does not make sense for their own safety…while we put into place processes that they may be able to access in the future,” the official said.”
So it appears as if Texas is going to have their hands full with Joe Biden from day one.
