I just want to point out that Chip Roy doesn't represent a district on the border of Texas. His district is closer to the border of Oklahoma than Mexico. It is a phenomenon I've noticed before, that the further one is from the Texas-Mexico border, the more one is frightened of it. I've seen it in Texas just as strongly as one sees it in states closer to Canada than Mexico.

I was a Democrat before Chip Roy was a gleam in his pappy's eye. And my only response to him is: "Go fuck yourself, asshole."

Abbott said he was shutting down six points of entry on the border. A few hours later, he said he wasn’t. He blames Biden for his confusion, but Texas DPS says they had a request from CBP to close one entry point. CBP says they have no idea what Abbott is talking about. They also point out Abbott can’t overrule federal law, such as control of international borders.
