“[American people] are looking at how [Biden] is giving favors to China by restricting our freedoms,” said Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on Fox News on Sunday.
When asked on “what can Republicans do to push back on Biden’s executive orders,” Senator Blackburn said that “[GOP] is in that mode where you have to play block and tackle on this filing.”
“Legislation, of course, is something that is important to do and also awareness. And as you saw this week in Knoxville, well, people are watching this and they are incredibly unhappy. They are looking at what has happened with the climate change, with the Paris climate accords, with stopping the Keystone XL pipeline. They are looking at how he is giving favors to China by restricting our freedoms,” continued Blackburn.
“His actions this week have adversely impacted one million jobs, either eliminating or adversely impacting, opening the border to drug cartels, to labor gangs, to gangs, to human traffickers, sex traffickers, making certain that feel that you’ve got that crude in Canada that is going to be heading over to China and then sold back to us. These are things that do not help the U.S. economy.”

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall
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.
