Texas Governor Will Hire Horseback Border Patrol Units If They’re Fired By Biden

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott said the state will hire horseback Border Patrol officers who were accused of hitting migrants with their reins in Del Rio, Texas, if President Joe Biden fires them.

Abbott said he would support any Border Patrol agents who might lose their jobs under the Biden administration, during an appearance on Fox News on Sunday. He added that the Biden administration’s immigration policies caused migrants to overwhelm border officials.

“If Biden fires the Border Patrol Officers who were securing the border on horseback, Texas will offer them a job,” Abbott said. “They can bring their horses too.”

“We will put them on the front line to do Biden’s job to secure the border,” Abbott added.

Biden said there would be consequences for the horseback Border Patrol units who tried to stop Haitians from entering the U.S. from Ciudad Acuña, Mexico, after an investigation into the incident, according to the Daily Caller.

Abbott said the Biden administration failed to enforce laws at the border so Texas has expended state resources to address an increase in migrants arriving at the southern border.

“If he takes any action against them whatsoever — I have worked side by side with those Border Patrol agents — I want them to know something. If they are risk of losing their job by a president who is abandoning his duty to secure the border, you have a job in the state of Texas,” Abbott said. “I will hire you to help Texas secure our border.”

Nearly 209,000 migrants attempted to illegally enter the U.S. in August, according to Customs and Border Protection data. More than 1.3 million migrants have been encountered at the southern border since January.
