TEXAS TAKES BOLD ACTION, BIDEN ADMIN RESPONDS

Lord, we ask that our leaders would uphold our Constitution, and that they would work to strengthen our citizens' safety and well-being.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland wrote a letter to Republican Governor of Texas Greg Abbott on Thursday in response to Abbott’s recent executive order.

Abbott signed an executive order this week restricting the flow of migrants into Texas due to COVID-19.

According to the governor’s website, Abbott signed the executive order “restricting ground transportation of migrants who pose a risk of carrying COVID-19 into Texas communities.” It also “directed the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to stop any vehicle upon reasonable suspicion of such violation…”

In response, Attorney General Garland wrote his own letter to Abbott, saying that the order cannot be enforced…

Garland concluded his letter by saying that if Abbott does not rescind the order, he was providing notice that “the United States intends to pursue all appropriate legal remedies to ensure that Texas does not interfere with the functions of the federal govern­ment.”…

Regarding the order, Abbott said, “The dramatic rise in unlawful border crossings has also led to a dramatic rise in COVID-19 cases among unlawful migrants who have made their way into our state, and we must do more to protect Texans from this virus…”

“This Executive Order will reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure in our communities,” he added…

The governor said that most people who are not from Texas…get information about the border from television, which tends to show many families and unaccompanied minors coming over the border. He said, however, that many of the people who are coming across the border are adults traveling alone — individuals who are not coming to the United States with good intentions.

He said that people who live in small towns near the border are being threatened and harassed every day…

Abbott added that President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have not called him to talk about the issue at the Texas border…

  1. I am so thankful for brave people like Governor Abbott, who will stand up for what is right, and seek to enforce states’ rights. May God continue to give him strength and courage, and guide him in all that he does.

  2. Father raise up leaders in our country, such as Governor Abbott who are not afraid to stand up to the mismanagement and over reach that our Federal government is guilty of. Should this go to court Lord please allow our legal system to let the states protect the sovereignty of their borders and their citizens.

    51
  3. I decree and declare states have the right to protect their citizens especially if the federal government is passing laws which hurt people in specific states. States are and will continue to stand against federal government tyrnany. The federal governement presently is an enemy of the states and violating the constitution. Our forefathers did forsee this happening and did make provisions to prevent this.
    Exposure and justice is and will prevail to this present administration. Repentance is a good thing and will save many people before it is too late. Repent swamp creatures before it is too late as God is a God of justice.

  4. They said NOT to mess with Texas, Garland. Apparently you’re not listening. I will gladly contribute to the wall and will continue to pray that Governor Abbott stands his ground, stays courageous and does his job of protecting our border on the Texas portion. God bless Texas!!!

    ‘Cause God blessed Texas with His own hand
    Brought down angels from the Promised Land
    He gave them a place where they could dance
    If you wanna see Heaven, brother, here’s your chance
    I’ve been sent to spread the message
    ‘God blessed Texas’

  5. If the current president will allow anyone to enter the United States without proper due diligence, I suggest each immigrant receive the Covid vaccine upon entering the country. As a Texan, this would give me great peace of mind for the health of myself and my family.

  6. Gov Abbott I completely support what your doing with the border. My prayers are with you. God’s continued favor with all your endeavors.
    God Bless you,
    Cathy Pomp

  7. Father God, bless Governor Abbott and the state of Texas. Protect your people and cause law and order to prevail. Give the Governor wisdom to continue to make the right decisions concerning the boarder and the safety of the people of Texas! Father, I pray that the United States of America would become a nation under God once again. Father, please tear down the strongholds that are gaining influence over the people’s minds! Give us all the mind of Christ! Protect us by the blood of Jesus that was shed on Calvary! In Jesus name!

  8. The prayers of this faith-filled and faithful group are always
    encouraging and I thank the Lord for all of them. If we are
    all in agreement and in support of this godly man and all other
    godly men in our nation, we have what we ask for in Jesus Name.
    I just sense in my spirit that the ungodly bluffs will be refuted
    in Jesus Name, as we stand on God’s Word in agreement.
    To this end, I pray and stand in agreement for God’s will to be done.
    In Jesus Name, Amen.

  9. The Federal Government’s major duty is to protect this country; the Biden administration is doing all it can to prevent this from happening. THIS IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE; When will congress site this administration for treason? The democrats tried the whole time President Trump was in office to impeach him on unfounded charges. This administration has more evidence of treason against Biden for impeachment, including his involvement in Ukraine. WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR? HIS DISTRUCTION OF OUR BORDER ALLOWING DISEASE AND DRUGS TO ENTER THIS COUNTRY IS SUFFICIENT ENOUGH TO GET HIM OUT OF OFFICE. DON’T WE HAVE JUSTICE ANYMORE?

    136
  10. Lydia Miller correctly prays for Merrick Garland and I agree but I can’t help pointing out what a disaster confirming him to the Supreme Court would have been based on his actions as Attorney General of the US. Even RBG upheld the Constitution in some cases. The Federal government is ignoring the law or making it up by executive order.

    63
  11. The federal gov’t has not done their job to protect the border and provide safety and security to Americans. In the face of federal failure, the states must protect themselves. Preferably banding together against the federal failure to verthrow this illegitimate and destructive regime.

    121
  12. It grieves my spirit to read about the illegal immigrants streaming across our southern border. Some come to escape poverty, but suffer abuse from corrupt smugglers. They learn to disregard the laws of our nation and continue to be victimized when they arrive. Some come with malicious intent. The United States has generous, legal means of entrance for immigrants, but this current situation is harming citizens and everyone involved. My heart broke to see the 2 little girls dropped over a wall on the border. I am thankful for our courageous Governor Greg Abbott who has taken strong measures to stop this injustice that is facilitated by the Federal authorities. How can we be silent!

    135
  13. Father God, please protect the rights of the people from unjust government. You gave our forefathers direction and wisdom in creating a constitution of states, through our own ignorance we have allowed the federal government to dictate to the states what they can do and what we don’t have authority over. Our government has been created by the people and for the people. Borders and boundaries are Your divine intent and we stand with and pray for Your protection over the people of Texas and Gov. Abbott as he stands his ground for the citizens of his state. Father May the hearts of people be moved to show support monetarily for the building of a wall to help keep out those who would seek to destroy this country. Father we also stand in the authority given us by our true leader, head of all authority, King Jesus and we bind the spirit of control and manipulation that has seated itself in DC and we loose Your warring angels to defeat it in JESUS NAME🙌🙌🙌 We thank You in advance as we watch this false kingdom crumble

    149
  14. Governor Abbott is sworn to protect the citizens of Texas and he is fulfilling his duty with bold courage and conviction. May the Lord prepare him and Texas to stand firm for the comingwrath of this administration in D.C.

    148
  15. Dear Father, please bless Gov. Abbott for his boldness and willingness to stand up for the citizens of his state and this country. How outrageous is the federal policy that puts its own citizens at risk. Thwart, confuse and stop the federal governments plans. Expose their lies and deceit. Raise up millions to come alongside Gov. Abbott to protect us. .Fill them with your Holy Spirit, let them go forth boldly and not fear the enemy. God you established the boundaries of the nations…protect Americas boundaries. We look to you…knowing you are more than able.

  16. We bless Mr. Gregg Abbott.
    Father we pray against the evil agenda of letting people pour in across the border.
    Abba Father, come Holy spirit in your conviction, pour out your spirit on Mr. Merrick Garland, break his heart for what breaks yours. Speak to him, morning, noon and night!!
    Send a host of angels to work on behalf of this open border process.
    Destroy all evil policies.
    We bind the evil forces of darkness, in Jesus powerful , precious name!!
    Holy one, come we need you at our border, we desperately need divine intervention,
    God you are able to protect Mr. Abbott’s healthy border policies. We plead the blood of Jesus over these good policies.
    In Jesus name, we declare every evil work cease, at the border. Protect the good work you have started!
    Amen ! Lydia
