On Sunday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott promised he would rent the border patrol agents on horseback accused of ‘beating’ Haitian migrants when the Biden administration fired them.
Abbott also said words to Home Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas because he could not secure the southern border.
The fiery comments from the governor of Texas come during an interview on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace.

Abbott: ‘The people of South Texas, they are angry’
“Secretary Mayorkas, and if I may be honest, even President Biden, they are failing in their duties,” Abbott said.
Abbott added: ‘The Biden administration has given up all pretense of securing the sovereignty of Texas or the United States by having this open border policy.
“The people of southern Texas, they are angry with the Biden administration because they ignored it, because they abandoned it,” the governor said. “The Biden administration cares much more for the people who are not in this country than for the people, American citizens who live in this country.”

The ongoing border crisis particularly affected the state of Texas. In the past week, thousands of Haitian migrants have invaded the Lone Star state.
Last week, images of border patrols on horseback preventing Haitian migrants from entering the US caused controversy, as the agents were originally reported to be using ‘whips’.
Officials later explained that the agents used long reins to control their horses. The agents turning their reins to move the horse forward is apparently what some considered whips.
Nevertheless, two agents accused of “floating” the illegal immigrants were placed on administrative duty.
Regardless, Biden said agents would ‘pay’ depends on what the investigation into the matter finds.
“It’s outrageous to see people like they have, with horses turning around, people tied up.” “I promise you, those people will pay. An investigation is currently underway and this will have consequences. “
The president’s treatment of the agents angered Abbott.
“What the president said after the border patrol, which endangered their lives, worked hard to secure the border,” Abbott said.
Gov. Greg Abbott has vowed to re-employ any Border Patrol agent punished by the Biden administration after the president condemned images of horse-riding agents blocking Haitian migrants at the Texas-Mexico border. https://t.co/24i3xIzI0k

Abbott to horse agents: ‘I’ll hire you to help Texas secure the border’
“If he acts against them at all – I worked with the border patrol agents – I want them to know something,” Abbott said.
“If they run the risk of losing their job by a president who abandons his duty to secure the border, you have a job in the state of Texas,” the governor promised.
He added: “I will hire you to help Texas secure the border.”
