Version of the speech of Senator Gina Andrea Cruz Blackledge, from his seat, to refer to the measures taken by the Governor of the United States State of Texas to prevent migration through his territory
Thank you, President.
I want to share with the Assembly that today I filed a resolution with a point of agreement with the Senate of the Republic to express my feelings about the decision made by Greg Abbott, the state governor. aggression to increase security measures along the border with Mexico, I think the measures you have announced are very unfortunate, which are designed to secure the border and turn back migrants who try to cross illegally And to deploy the National Guard to back it up.
Deploy the Texas Department of Public Safety to arrest and deport immigrants who cross the border illegally.
Construction of border wall in various border areas.
Deploy armed boats to guard the border.
Designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations.
Cooperate with other states to secure the border.
Reach agreements with foreign powers to improve border security.
Leverage resources to border countries to enhance their efforts to respond to border encroachments.
I believe that this situation is unfortunate in some extreme points and I believe that the Senate of the Republic cannot remain silent about this possibility of designating our emigrants as invaders.
The point of agreement that I am proposing is that the Senate of the Republic expresses itself and regrets the decision of Texas State Governor Greg Abbott to invoke the Invasion Clause to enhance the security measures and that That the Senate of the Republic I respectfully ask the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to establish dialogue with the authorities of the State of Texas in order to reach a diplomatic solution.
This is a proposal that I am making and clearly seek the possibility that this point of agreement is agreed upon as an immediate and clear resolution, and that the Senate of the Republic adopt it.
How much is it, President.
