Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is tired of waiting on the Biden regime to secure the border because he knows that's not going to happen.
As such, he is taking bold new action on his own to protect Texans from an onslaught of illegal aliens and deadly fentanyl smuggling.
On Wednesday, Abbott announced that he has signed an executive order designating the Mexico-based cartels as terrorist organizations while also empowering the Texas Department of Public Safety to take appropriate action to secure the border.
"Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, & Texans are victimized by Mexican cartels that produce & import it. Today, I issued an Executive Order designating cartels as terrorist organizations & directed @TxDPS to take immediate action to disrupt cartel & gang activity," Abbott noted on Twitter.
