Gov. Greg Abbott blamed the deaths directly on the president, while Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, wondered aloud how many more people must die before the president or his party “give a damn.”
Biden meanwhile was in Germany meeting European leaders, with French President Emmanuel Macron notably stopping the president between events to warn him Middle Eastern oil producers are at near-capacity while the U.S. continues to conversely tamp-down on oil production.
On “The Five,” host Jesse Watters said Biden couldn’t care less about the plight of border states from his longtime perch in Wilmington, Delaware thousands of miles away from directly affected jurisdictions.
“He’s a snob from Delaware. He doesn’t even consider Texas a part of the country. He thinks it’s our gas station,” Watters said. “That’s where they killed Kennedy. It’s where they kill the ozone layer, and they’re a bunch of Neanderthals: That’s how he really feels about Texas.”
He noted Biden has been to China exponentially more in the past 40 years than he has to the Mexican border, adding his recent actions and statements have shown he doesn’t have much “affection” for Texas or Mexico.
Judge Jeanine Pirro later added Biden will continue to claim the border is secure, calling that sentiment a lie.
“The president is in the United States Supreme Court fighting the remain-in-Mexico policy. He doesn’t want the illegals to remain in Mexico. He is fighting Title 42. He wants to open the border,” she said.
“So what this administration is doing is they’re laying out the welcome mat every day in terms of what they do. So they can tell me until the cows come home, the border is secure, that the borders closed, and they’re lying to all of us.”
Pirro pointed to the DHS ghost flights of illegal immigrants into places like her own hometown of Westchester, N.Y., where local officials have decried secretive flights landing at the county’s airport near the Connecticut border.
Officials in Pennsylvania and Florida have also voiced similar concerns about ghost flights in their states.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has called on migrants to be bused to Delaware and Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano supported legislation to do just that for migrants being secretly sent to Allentown and Scranton.
