52 Republicans Voted to Protect Dem’s Spots on a Border Security Council
Despite Republican vows to secure the Texas Border, illegal crossings are surging with the assistance of the cartels, resembling an invasion. Since Democrat Joe Biden’s term began, over 8.5 million illegal aliens have entered the US. House Bill 20 in the Texas Legislature would have created a Border Protection Unit, but was blocked by House Leadership in collaboration with Democrats.
