Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas, took a hardline stance against the drug cartels pouring across the southern border into the U.S. this week, officially labeling them terrorists. Abbott wrote on Twitter that Executive Order GA-42 directed the Texas Department of Public Safety to “take immediate action to disrupt the cartel & gang activity.”
Governor candidate, TX Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, & Texans are victimized by Mexican cartels that produce & import it.
Today, I issued an Executive Order designating cartels as terrorist organizations & directed @TxDPS to take immediate action to disrupt cartel & gang activity. 4:42 PM · Sep 21, 2022 ·Twitter Web App
According to a report from The Gateway Pundit, the executive order is fairly broad, instructing the Texas Department of Public Safety to establish a Mexican Cartel Division in the Texas Fusion Center, as well as identify, arrest, and “impede” gangs in the Lone Star State that may support drug and human trafficking.
“I also sent a letter to the Biden Admin. classify Mexican drug cartels operating in Texas as terrorist organizations,” the governor said on Twitter. “Texas is stepping up to get these gangs & deadly drugs off our streets.”
Per Breitbart, Abbott’s letter to Washington D.C. took aim at Biden’s inaction at the border and requested that his administration designate the Sinaloa and New Generation Cartels as terrorist organizations.
The governor wrote:
“Mexican drug cartels terrorize the United States and its citizens every day, leaving thousands of dead bodies in their wake. Their latest weapons of choice are the millions of tiny pills laced with fentanyl that they pour across our southern border. As a result, it is necessary, now more than ever, for you to designate the Sinaloa Cartel, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, and any similarly situated Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).” Abbott has drawn attention to the failed immigration policies of Biden’s administration by sending illegal immigrants to Democrat-run cities around the nation. Per RSBN, Abbott sent migrants into places like Washington D.C., New York City, and Chicago to illustrate the unsustainability of allowing millions of people to cross the border.
Biden is going to be mad. There goes his 10% cut.
Texas Border Ping.
Terrorists? Look, terrorists are people who vote for Trump and go to school board meetings. Just because a group traffics in child sex slaves and beheads people is no reason to go and judge them! They might even be Biden supporters!
They need wholesale extermination.
Terrorists are exactly what they are.
And they control far, far more then just drug traffic in Mexico. Now they basically control the entire country.
And you can be sure that they own lots of politicians in the Southwest, ESPECIALLY California.
Newsom, Padilla, Rendon, Gascon...just the tip of the iceberg of the Narco State.
Yes and I can’t wait to hear his Bullsheite reply.
I’m hoping to see his face get all red like x42’s did when We defeated the 1st attempt at passing the sham they called the Crime Bill way back in the day.
If that is true, then it’s no longer a law enforcement issue as the main effort. This is a mission for the militia.
Yes, unfortunately a lot of them are Mexican Military gone to the Dark Side and brought their issued Hardware.
“Just because a group traffics in child sex slaves and beheads people is no reason to go and judge them!”
If we could delete them it would cut this crap in half.
“Biden is going to be mad. There goes his 10% cut”.
They own Biden and he’ll continue to do nothing to close the border.
They don’t owe him a single centavo.
Almost time for Turkey Hunting Season boys...
Why not utilize both where/whenever possible, in RED areas?
Good for him. This is a point that Trump absurdly failed to do or follow-through with—declaring these groups, Antifa, BLM, and others as terrorist organizations. He talked about doing it but never actually did.
Abbott - talking and sending letters. What I want him to do is declare an invasion is in progress, mobilize the entire National Guard, issue weapons and ammo, shut down the border, and gain full control of the border repelling all invaders.
Did not say LEO isn’t to be used. I said it isn’t the main effort. LEO plays a supporting role: but terrorist orgs are to be hunted and killed, with no emphasis on building a case for prosecution.
The US Constitution assigns this mission to the militia. We are nationally stupid to realize it.
