25 U.S. Republican governors back Texas in standoff with Biden --A legal battle between the border state and federal agencies over immigration has been brewing for months | 26 Jan 2024 | A large group of Republican governors has issued a joint statement voicing "solidarity" with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and his stepped-up border protections, accusing the White House of leaving the country "completely vulnerable" amid an influx of illegal migrants. Published on Thursday, the open letter was signed by 25 GOP governors across the country, with Vermont Governor Phil Scott the sole Republican to leave his signature off the message. The state leaders were highly critical of Joe Biden, who they said had "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."
