Texas Congressman Says State Should Shut Down ALL Roads from Mexico Border

'The American people have had it, the Texans have had it, and they can all just go to hell...'

Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, argued his home state should consider shutting down all roads that connect to Mexico, to force the Biden administration to take the immigration crisis seriously.

Texas should prohibit all travel between the U.S. and Mexico, Roy said — even if that means halting millions of dollars in trade.

“We’re getting to a point right now where we ought to consider just shutting down the ports of entry, to send a loud signal to the United States that we’re not going to deal with this anymore,” Roy told Newsmax on Tuesday morning. “I want the attorney general of the United States to come down to Texas, look me in the face, and tell me he’s going to do something to stop Texans from securing our border. It’s time. We need to do it ourselves.”

The crisis at the southern border continues to deteriorate as thousands of illegal immigrants — most of whom have not been vaccinated against the coronavirus — flood border towns.

Last month border officials encountered a record-breaking 210,000 illegal immigrants trying to cross the border.

“The American people have had it, the Texans have had it, and they can all just go to hell,” Roy said.

Roy also made the point that drug trafficking and human trafficking across the southern border has skyrocketed because of the influx of illegal immigration. 

“You’ve got this crisis going on at the border, which is endangering Texans, endangering ranchers, endangering our country with opioids flowing in and cartels having operational control. You’ve got thousands of immigrants who are in these horrible conditions and are risking their lives and are being abused by cartels,” he explained. “We’re getting to a place now, a desperate time, where we’re not really having any true policing at our border.”

Nonessential travel from Mexico or Canada to the U.S. has been suspended for the past year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Roy’s suggestion would also shut down essential travel.
