Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has sided with Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott, challenging President Joe Biden's border policies.

In a surprising turn of events, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent candidate for the Oval Office, has publicly announced his support for Abbott's controversial measures to secure the southern border.

This endorsement starkly contrasts with his stance against the policies of Biden's administration regarding border security, as the Daily Wire reported.

Detailed views on border control measures

Kennedy, in a recent statement, echoed Abbott's determination to protect the border of Texas, emphasizing states' rights in border security matters.

He criticized the Biden administration for putting border states in a difficult position due to its handling of border security.

Kennedy stated:

Texas is right. Biden’s failure to secure the border leaves states no choice but to take matters into their own hands. As President, I will end this humanitarian crisis once and for all. I will secure the border and destroy the business model of the drug cartels. A country without borders is not a country at all.

Kennedy's endorsement comes at a time when 25 Republican governors, excluding Vermont's Phil Scott, have united in support of Abbott's actions.

This collective stance underscores a significant divide between state-level Republican leadership and the Biden administration over border security strategies.

United front of GOP governors

The collective stance of the GOP governors was articulated in a strongly worded letter released on Thursday.

The officials accused the Biden administration of leaving America vulnerable through its handling of the border situation.

The letter read:

President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border. Instead of upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the Biden Administration has attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect American citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.

This united front further emphasizes the discontent with federal policies and the determination of these governors to adopt their own measures to secure their states.

Controversial tactics and solidarity

The letter from the GOP governors also highlighted their commitment to using every available tool to secure the border.

This includes the controversial use of razor wire fences.

The tactic was used as a direct response to what Texas officials perceive as the federal government's failure to enforce existing immigration laws.

They expressed solidarity with Abbott and the State of Texas, indicating a broad and robust support base for Abbott's border security measures among Republican state leaders.

Kennedy's statement further elaborated:

We stand in solidarity with our fellow Governor, Greg Abbott, and the State of Texas in utilizing every tool and strategy, including razor wire fences, to secure the border. We do it in part because the Biden Administration is refusing to enforce immigration laws already on the books and is illegally allowing mass parole across America of migrants who entered our country illegally.

Conclusion

  • Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent presidential candidate, has publicly supported Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's border security measures.
  • Kennedy criticizes the Biden administration for its handling of border security, aligning his views with those of Abbott and 25 other Republican governors.
