Pledges to construct the border wall. Descriptions of the United States homes occupied by migrants and a trial of killing. Strategies to capture illegal border crossers and put them in jail. It is not happening in the past during the Trump era. It’s recent from Greg Abbott (Texas Gov.) in 2021.
Abbott is one of the determined GOP governors who continued from where Donald Trump (former President) stopped when it meets to hard-line immigration actions.
In previous weeks, Texas Gov. has introduced hard strategies and rhetoric that haven’t seen in Texas, where GOP members have operated around a decade developing border security which was the main focus of their outline.
Potential Presidential Candidate for 2024 Election
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who is an expected presidential candidate in the future election in 2024, pledged to stay on his aim to construct the border wall. Moreover, he has conducted a questionable approach for supporting funds: solicitations and crowdsourcing.
Texas Governor’s novel drive has been mentioned as political theater, which Abbott has clearly denied as the number of immigrants continues to surge. Through this act, Gregg Abbott got former President Trump’s attention.
After saying good bye to the White House in January, it is going to be the first visit of Donald Trump to the United States-Mexico border. On Wednesday, Trump is going to appear with Texas Gov., and he is likely to participate in the gathering with several other Republican lawmakers.
The actions from Texas Gov. and other GOP governors are one indication of how former President Donald Trump’s anti-immigration measures are outliving his supremacy.
GOP leaders who see a future in the Republican party continue to realize support for hostile border actions as a political success, observed by 2020 consequences that said that Donald Trump’s diplomacy didn’t push away Latino supporters as indicated by some Democrats.
There are indications that the GOP pressure is showing progress. On Friday, after dealing with weeks of criticism from the Republicans and other critics for not going to the border, Kamala Harris (Vice President) has decided to visit El Paso.
A Republican strategist in Texas, Matt Langston, described that from the GOP audience perspective, it is a rock-solid crisis for the governor. He continued that it’s a disaster that is going to pay dividends for Greg Abbott.
