American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten is now saying “Schools must be open.” Weingarten gave a speech at AFT headquarters Thursday to call students back to in-person learning.

“There is no doubt: Schools must be open. In person. Five days a week. With the space and facilities to do so,” Weingarten said. “We know that’s how kids learn best and that prolonged isolation is harmful.”

Weingarten also launched a $5 million campaign “to communicate the importance of in-school learning and build families’ trust and confidence in children returning to school.” The campaign is called “Back-to-School for Everyone.” This comes after President Biden has also executed a billion-dollar plan to help schools.

“The United States will not be fully back until we are fully back in school. And my union is all in,” Weingarten said.

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
