Surrounded by 13 Republican governors Sunday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott reiterated his control over a section of the southern U.S. border—part of a growing feud between the outspoken GOP leader and President Joe Biden’s administration.
Abbott spoke, flanked by his GOP governor counterparts, at a press conference in Eagle Pass, a small border town next to the city of Piedras Negras in Mexico. A statement said Abbott had provided the governors a briefing on Operation Lone Star, launched by Abbott in 2021 in response to the border crisis, before the group appeared in front of cameras.
Among those who spoke alongside Abbott were Governor of Tennessee and Chairman of the Republican Governors Association Bill Lee, who added he is prepared to send more of his own state’s troops to the border to assist Abbott.
