Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s orange river rafts are the biggest hoax of the year.
I may be a bit ignorant about this, but I am guessing that Abbott is trying to screen the people coming in, and that is why he wants to funnel them into the checkpoints? I have heard that bodies are found on people's property. I have a friend who is down on the border now, with her daughter who has a farm there, and they find bodies all the time on their farm. So sending the people towards the preferred checkpoints will prevent locals from having to deal with the illegals.
Ten grand a year is a drop in the bucket to the rest of the perks they get once here. Just go look at the info on the Refugee Resettlement Program overseen by the Dept of Health & Human Resources.
Y'all celebrate a guy like Brian Harrison. He voted to put Dade Phelan into the Speaker's chair.
