Obama Should Do Something About the Texas-Mexico Border
Greg Abbott, an Attorney General based in Texas, is calling the attention of President Barack Obama regarding the security of the border between Mexico and Texas. It was only recently that a shooting incident happened in Juarez, Mexico wherein the shots crossed the American border and struck Texas City Hall. In an interview with the Fox News, Atty. Greg Abbott said that two-thirds of the American-Mexican border is located in Texas. He considers these places to be very violent because of the immigration security and the show of force from the current administration is truly overwhelming.
President Barack Obama made a speed recently at the American University regarding the immigration security. However, Greg Abbott was truly unimpressed with what the president said. The attorney general said that it still needs full review apart from the reviews being undertaken at the legal immigration in United States. In his speed, the president said that their country has the responsibility and the right to control the borders. At the same time, they also have the right to set the laws for citizenship as well as residency in United States. The president also added that no matter what the reasons are and no matter how decent the immigrant is, as long as they are one of the 11 million people who broke the immigration-related laws, they should always be held accountable for their acts.
Greg Abbott said that the president still does not have a real idea how severe the security border issues are or probably Obama is trying to mislead is countrymen with his speech. Abbott said that the recent speech made by Barack Obama made it abundantly clear to the Americans that his administration would not commit in keeping the security of the American-Mexican border. This is despite the expected 1,200 National Guard troops that will secure the borders by the end of August.
