Abbott Steals The Wind Out Of Biden's Threat Against Border Agents LOL
Texas Governor Greg Abbott stole the wind from Biden's threat against border agents. Abbott offered targeted agents a job in his state, defending his vulnerable border.
Agents on horseback were accused of whipping migrants in September, after Democratic lawmakers who saw images of the encounters misidentified the agents’ split reins and claimed that the agents were whipping people. Six months after the "whipping" narrative was debunked, the matter remains under investigation.
"If any adverse action is taken against these border patrol agents who were doing their job to secure the border then Texas will offer them a job to help TX do the federal government job to secure the border These agents should be praised not persecuted."

Abbot was responding to Biden's threat to make the men 'pay' and accusing them of mistreating illegals. He was, of course, going off of liberal propaganda that wrongfully accused the agents of whipping illegals as they tried to cross, based on an ill-timed photograph.
"To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped – it's outrageous," Biden said while pretending to crack an invisible whip.
"I promise you, those people will pay," he said, referring to frontline Border Patrol agents. "There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences."
I should add, that the photo was debunked BEFORE thug Biden made his threat.
A photographer who took the images in question said that "nobody saw a Border Patrol agent whipping," and Mayorkas initially backed the agents alongside Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz.
Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told Fox News Digital in an interview that the situation on the ground in Del Rio was a "powder keg" as migrants had just discovered that they were in fact likely to be removed rather than allowed into the U.S.
"These agents were specifically sent to that location to stop more people from crossing, that was what they were sent there to do," Judd said. "This was under the orders of their management which of course is under the control of Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas."
