Greg Abbott, Border Patrol union prez slam Biden for shipping pallets of baby formula to illegals amid shortage

By Jennie Taer

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd slammed President Joe Biden Thursday for allegedly providing migrants with baby formula amid a nationwide shortage.

Republican Florida Rep. Kat Cammack shared photos on Twitter Wednesday showing stocked shelves of baby formula in one Texas migrant facility. Abbott and Judd said the issue is just another one of Biden’s “reckless” border policies, according to their statement.

“Children are our most vulnerable, precious Texans and deserve to be put first. Yet, President Biden has turned a blind eye to parents across America who are facing the nightmare of a nationwide baby formula shortage,” Abbott and Judd said in the joint statement. “While mothers and fathers stare at empty grocery store shelves in a panic, the Biden Administration is happy to provide baby formula to illegal immigrants coming across our southern border.”

 

Cammack’s photos were allegedly taken by a Border Patrol agent at the Ursula Processing Center in McAllen, Texas, according to her Twitter post.

The ongoing shortage of baby formula has intensified in recent days, as stores lacked 43% of baby formula stock for the week ending in May 8 due to supply chain issues, product recalls and record inflation, according to Datasembly.

“This is yet another one in a long line of reckless, out-of-touch priorities from the Biden Administration when it comes to securing our border and protecting Americans. Our children deserve a president who puts their needs and survival first – not one who gives critical supplies to illegal immigrants before the very people he took an oath to serve,” Abbott and Judd added.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said that it has a duty to meet the basic needs of migrants, an agency spokesperson told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“CBP takes seriously its legal responsibility to ensure the safety and security of individuals in our custody. Ensuring migrants, including children and infants, in our custody have their basic needs met is in line with this Administration’s commitment to ensuring safe, orderly, and humane processes at our border. CBP complies with all applicable regulations for the purchase of products used in CBP facilities,” the spokesperson said.

The White House didn’t immediately respond to TheDCNF’s request for comment.

  1. When the Feds pamper illegal aliens, criminals, and MAKE criminals of parents at school board meetings and protesters of the Regime it’s NO wonder some fools WILL fall for the “Great Replacement” meme like that wing nut in Buffalo. Don’t get me wrong, if the 1/6/21 Capitol protestors broke stuff & hurt people they SHOULD be prosecuted, but recent video, kept “under seal” for over the past year shows up to 80 un-charged/arrested “agents” provoking/entrapping “Oath Keepers” & others into wide open doors. See the latest at http://www.epochtimes.com proving same. Now FOX’s Lawrence Jones has video of unmarked jets & buses bringing illegal aliens into Westchester NY with shades drawn to hide their new clothes, cellphones & other US Taxpayer provided freebies. And the formula plant shuttered by the FDA since last fall that provided at least 40% in the US? NO excuses, similar plant closures force corrections, become compliant, and resume production in under a month so what happened here? I’ll take a media-hated, constantly bashed corporate executive vs. an idiot who lingered in the US Senate for 40 years who cannot spell bob backwards nor remember what he had for breakfast. CAN he do it again? Two words–“Grover Cleveland”..
