Independent presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced on Thursday that he supported Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) in his efforts to secure the southern border despite opposing efforts made by President Joe Biden’s administration.

Kennedy shared a statement from Abbott, in which the Texas Governor asserted his right to secure the borders of his state even if the federal government refused to do so, and said that he believed the Biden administration had pushed border states into a corner.

“Texas is right. Biden’s failure to secure the border leaves states no choice but to take matters into their own hands,” Kennedy posted. “As President, I will end this humanitarian crisis once and for all. I will secure the border and destroy the business model of the drug cartels. A country without borders is not a country at all.”


Kennedy’s statement came as 25 Republican governors across the United States — every GOP governor save Vermont’s Phil Scott — voiced their support for Abbott’s actions in a letter on Thursday.


“President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border,” the statement read in part. “Instead of upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the Biden Administration has attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect American citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.”

“We stand in solidarity with our fellow Governor, Greg Abbott, and the State of Texas in utilizing every tool and strategy, including razor wire fences, to secure the border,” the statement continued. “We do it in part because the Biden Administration is refusing to enforce immigration laws already on the books and is illegally allowing mass parole across America of migrants who entered our country illegally.”
