Gov. Abbott: Biden’s South Africa Travel Ban Is ‘Hypocritical’ As Border Crisis Continues

Texas Governor Abbott

Texas Governor Greg Abbott slammed President Biden’s decision to ban travel from South Africa while maintaining weak border security policies that have “opened the floodgates” to illegal immigrants.

“Over 50 illegal immigrants from South Africa and other South African countries under the Biden travel ban have been apprehended by CBP this year, with 18 being apprehended this month alone,” Abbott tweeted on Monday. “Biden’s open border policies must end.”

 

Abbott also released a statement from his office on Twitter discussing Biden’s “hypocritical” border policies.

“President Biden’s hypocritical handling of legal travel and border policies has shown the world that the United States is open—as long as you enter illegally. Coming from over 150 countries around the world, including countries covered under the Biden travel ban, President Biden’s hands-off approach to our southern border has opened the floodgates to a 61-year record-high number of illegal immigrants surging into our state,” the statement said.

“Over 50 illegal immigrants from South Africa and other South African countries under the Biden travel ban have been apprehended by CBP this year, with 18 being apprehended in November alone,” the statement continued.

“Until President Biden stops the hypocrisy and does his job, Texas will continue stepping up to secure the border and protect Texans. Since Governor Abbott launched Operation Lone Star in March, the National Guard and DPS have apprehended over 80,000 migrants and arrested 9,700 who committed a state or federal crime, including smugglers and human traffickers, to crack down on illegal crossings of migrants,” the statement added.
