Texas uses its ‘muscle’ to force Mexico to clean up its side of the border: Todd Bensman


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Todd Bensman, Center for Immigration Studies, details how Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pushing the Biden administration and Mexican governors to respond to the border crisis on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

TODD ​​BENSMAN: The Abbott administration closes trade with Mexico. They say they’re doing it with enhanced border security inspections at all of these ports of entry into America, actually for trucking, Laredo and also Farr and El Paso as well. Just close those bridges with inspections, basically. And they won’t say exactly what I think they mean, which is “we’re going to do this to you, Mexico, until you clean your side of the border of the mass migration that is coming”. Now…to me, it feels like a leverage point. I think they are hoping to get the Biden administration and the Mexican governors to react to this. It turns out to be a major muscle…that the state of Texas is capable of flexing.
