'No Border Security, No Funding': Biden Gets Terrible News After Texas Lawmakers Take Drastic Action To Force Biden To Secure The Southern Border

On Thursday, a group of 15 Republican lawmakers led by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) issued an ultimatum to the Biden administration via a letter to fellow lawmakers that explained that if the White House refuses to secure the southern border then the Congress should take action to cut off funding to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) led by Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

"I will not support giving taxpayer $ to a fed govt at war with Tx, suing our governor, lying about [Customs and Border Protection] whipping people, lying about operational control, helping fentanyl kill Americans, & most sick of all, allowing little girls to get raped in stash houses," Roy wrote on X.

In addition to Roy, 14 other Texans signed on to his letter with Reps. Brian Babin (TX-36), Keith Self (TX-3), Wesley Hunt (TX-38), Randy Weber (TX-14), Beth Van Duyne (TX-24), Nathaniel Moran (TX-1), Michael Burgess (TX-26), Michael Cloud (TX-27), Lance Gooden (TX-5), Troy Nehls (TX-22), Pete Sessions (TX-17), Ronny Jackson (TX-13), Pat Fallon (TX-13) and Morgan Luttrell (TX-8) all voicing support.

"The State of Texas is bearing the brunt of a national crisis at our southern border directly resulting from the unlawful and irresponsible actions of President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas," the letter reads.

“Governor Abbott has been forced to use Texas’ limited resources to do at least part of the job the federal government refuses,” the letter explains in reference to Operation Lone Star. 

“Rather than reimburse Texas for its efforts, which benefit all Americans, the Biden administration has filed suit against our state citing ‘humanitarian concerns,’ purposefully ignoring the humanitarian crisis of its own making," Roy and the lawmakers explain referencing the Biden admin's attempt to stop Gov. Abbott from placing buoys along the Rio Grande.

“Simply put, no member of Congress should agree to fund a federal agency at war with his state and people," the statement reads. "We have a moral obligation to protect our states, our nation, and, importantly, the migrant children getting abused from the disaster transpiring at our southern border.”

“No appropriation should fund DHS,” the lawmakers emphasize, “until the necessary steps are taken to secure the border, such as:

  1. Signing H.R. 2, or similar strong border security legislation, into law and prohibiting funds from being used in contravention of its provisions, including by mass releasing migrants through the CBP One app or otherwise;
  2. Adopting policies that give law enforcement and/or our military the tools necessary to target dangerous cartels;
  3. Ensuring Secretary Mayorkas is removed from office, resigns, is fired, or is otherwise defunded; and/or
  4. Reimbursing Texas the $10 billion – to date – for Operation Lonestar and related border security efforts, as well as any other border state that has demonstrated such significant law-enforcement related expenses, and stopping Biden’s lawsuit against our state.”

The letter then concluded with the following call to action for members of Congress: “No border security, no funding."

The situation at the southern border is desperate and Americans from Texas to New York are bearing the brunt of Biden's refusal to secure the border. Cutting off funding to the DHS would be a powerful move that would force the president's hand to defend American sovereignty.
