GOP governors at the southern border


Gov. Mike Parson joined several other GOP governors at the U.S.-Mexico border in Eagle Pass, Texas to criticize the Biden administration's handling of the border crisis.

Parson shared on "X" that he supports the decisions of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott when it comes to the border. Parson said he doesn't believe the federal government is doing it's job to protect the southern border, and calls on it to change that.

"I'm telling you, every state needs to step up and make sure we're doing the right thing by enforcing the laws of the United States of America. And if they are not gonna do that then that's why you got over half the states of the United States to come down here and help secure the border," Parson said.

The Missouri Democratic party shared a statement saying the visit was a waste.

"It is shameful but unsurprising that Governor Parson and other national leaders of the Republican Party have chosen to call a press conference in Eagle Pass instead of calling on their colleagues in Congress to pass the bipartisan border deal that would address this national security crisis," said Missouri Democratic Party Executive Director Matthew Patterson.
