Agree. THREAD: I filed discharge petition on April 20th (we’re “high” on border security) to force vote on HR471 - @RepHerrell’s bill to require Title 42 (communicable disease health laws) enforcement, which Trump used. 5 mos later, 149 GOP, 0 Dems... #NationalBorderCrisis (1/7)
…Why no more? Well… a) @HouseGOP leadership has not whipped the bill. They should be asked why. b) When we had 110 in July, I mentioned this on @TuckerCarlson and he blasted them - and boom, we got about 40 more… so now everyone asks me who is not on it & I’ve… (2/7)

THREAD re: Tx role combatting #NationalBorderCrisis. Summary: Feds refuse to enforce, Tx leadership has fought back (in court & with $/rhetoric/action), Tx still getting crushed & b/c feds abandon Constitution, Tx must consider going farther, extraordinary measures. Read… (1/23)
…Clearly it’s the job of the fed govt to secure the border & the Constitution (Artlce IV, Section 4) guarantees a Republican form of govt & to protect against invasion. Yet, @JoeBiden & Mayorkas are willfully (& impeachably) refusing to faithfully execute the laws - e.g… (2/23)
…they refuse to: enforce MPP (Return to Mx) - now ignoring federal court order to do so, refuse to use full Title 42 (COVID) (reducing its use significantly even BEFORE court ruling, which now refuse to fight), refuse to devote necessary resources to @CBP & @ICEgov… (3/23)

Message to Republicans & Democrats - including @HouseGOP & @SenateGOP colleagues. I do not trust you to do anything at all, much less say you will draft my daughter to “non combat” roles. Why don’t I trust you? Let’s see - THREAD: (1/9) #DontDraftOurDaughters
Maybe it’s because you (both R&D) have amassed $30 trillion in debt and are blowing through trillions more… all while giving lip service to “balanced budgets” for decades… (2/9)
Maybe it’s because you (both R & D) have talked about securing our border while Texans suffer - our ranches, our schools, our hospitals - Fentanyl pouring into our communities… murders, rapes… dead migrants on ranches… all in the false name of compassion… (3/9)

State of the Border:

While I was at the Border in Laredo with @tedcruz and @NancyMace last night, Border Patrol found 29 humans being smuggled in a trailer at Charley 29 Checkpoint.

#BidenBorderCrisis #ImpeachMayorkas
We moved down to the Rio Grande where a group of 30+ migrants and coyotes were waiting to cross into the United States
During all of this, 44 people were found in a stash house nearby. Laredo is already setting record numbers off stash house busts

What a surprise: @CNN pushing out dishonest propaganda to run cover for the Biden administration.

Since @brikeilarcnn won't tell the truth about this border crisis and my efforts to stop it, I will.

THREAD (1/12)
To start, this graph is what CNN wants you to believe about Biden’s COVID protocols at the border, but the red line starting in May appears to show the CUMULATIVE number of T42 expulsions since Biden took office, not MONTHLY number
The graph here, however, is based on the Biden administration’s ACTUAL CBP numbers for the month of June. (Source: @profmjcleveland)

CNN fudged Biden's own numbers for him

Yesterday in McAllen: @CBP overwhelmed. No room to process illegals inside, so have to wait outside under bridge. Just in 24 hrs in 2 stations, encountered over 3,400 (1700 MCS & 1300 RGVS). Currently holding over 7,000 illegals w/ some 5,000 waiting… #BorderCrisis (1/5)
…It’s over 100 degrees. The 2 stations have combined capacity of 620 – holding 7000! From Agent with over 2-1/2 decades of service -  “they are way past capacity – so aliens sit outside because where do you take them? …it’s a nightmare – people want to go to bathroom… (2/5)
…need to eat, women need to breast-feed, & the list goes on…  This has surpassed the point of sustainability – this is lunacy.”
Where are you, now, @AOC? The hypocrisy & double standard is undeniable. The difference? The Trump team was doing everything possible… (3/5)
