Following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention announcing that vaccinated people don’t have to wear masks anymore, an altercation over masks broke out in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Hill’s Scott Wong was in the room when it happened. Rep. Marjorie Greene Taylor’s (R-GA) Communications Director Nick Dyer started the spat. When he saw Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) wearing a mask on the floor, he reminded him of Thursday’s subsequent announcement from President Biden.

“Biden says you can take off your mask,” Dyer said.

Wong saw Swalwell get “in [Dyer’s] face.” Then, according to Dyer, Swalwell told him: “You don’t tell me what to f***ing do!”

Then, after reports of the incident, Swalwell doubled down, saying he “regret[s he] wasn’t more explicit.” To hear him tell it, he was standing up to a bully. “No one should be bullied for wearing a mask.” In the tweet, he called the director an aide.

But Greene says Swalwell was the bigger bully. She claims he “chased my staffer into the Capitol, cornered him and exploded in anger inches from his face.”

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.
