I would love to see where on the map hey Abbott thinks South Africa is.
 
2021-11-29 12:14:58 AM  
I fully support building a wall along our border with South Africa.

Haiti, not just an island off of South Africa.

I got my doctorate from a university in South Africa, in fact the University of South Africa.

I am sure there are some people from South Africa here illegally. And I'm sure they are visa overstays which no one ever seems to talk about.
 
2021-11-29 1:15:43 AM  
Does... Does he think people are walking to Texas from South Africa?

The # of South Africans caught entering by @CBP across ENTIRE southern border is so small it's not tracked on monthly updates including 20 top nationalities. But for 2020 it was 6; 2019, 4; 2018, 4; 2017, 5; 0 in 2016.

Since the variant Thursday, almost no way to get to border. https://t.co/682Xd3HN8Z

That just show how great of a job Trump did in keeping South Africans out of the US

Abbot should show us where South Africa is on a map.

I love the whole genre of tweets that is like "Biden caught X at the border! He's doing nothing to stop X from crossing the border!"

It's a weird way for them to prove themselves wrong while making the statements.
 
2021-11-29 6:28:05 AM  
Well, our border with South Africa is just so huge...

Hey Abbott, speaking of doing nothing, how's everyone in Texas staying warm this holiday season?

Power grid all sorted out?
Yeah, what I thought.
 
2021-11-29 6:46:39 AM  
I've only personally known 8 people that came to the US from South Africa, and they were white.

Most South Africans in the US illegally got here by way of an airplane or a boat, despite Governor Ironsides' fantasy.

Gov Abbott has a ban on murder in his state

People are murdering still.

Gov Abbott is doing nothing to stop illegal murder.

By the time you get to the US-Mexico border from South Africa, you will be sick if you have Covid. People getting the Omicron variant in South Africa, hopping a flight to Mexico, taking a bus to a border area, and then finding a place to cross illegally are not a real concern. As Abbott knows. So no, there is no hypocrisy involved.

Don't be obtuse. Obviously they are swimming here.

Those illegals are sly and crafty. I wouldn't be surprised. If you can steal a minimum wage job from a redneck without speaking the language or having papers, and while disguising yourself as a machine or computer, you're one devious bastard.

The most pathetic part of this is that he actually thinks making these idiotic statements advances his goal of a '24 presidential run

Not really since it was 0 the year he was not in office.
 
2021-11-29 6:58:28 AM  
Wait until he finds out that the South Africans coming are mostly white, Dutch, and racist AF.

/Colonialism, what does it mean!?

The world is a scary place and we noncons need to understand and respect everybody.  The best solution to protect Conservatives is to build a wall and secure them all behind it.  70,000 square miles secured by a wall for 70 million people is plenty.
After it's done the number of people trying to get in will stun everyone of them.
 
2021-11-29 7:02:27 AM  
Just say "blacks".  Wait, you can't just say "blacks" like "BOO!" anymore?  How about "diseased South Africans"?

Good stuff.  Hey, enjoy your reelection.

The most pathetic part is that it does advance that goal.

Before you run in 2024 for president you first gotta win the GOP nomination.

Abbott thinks blowing a racist dog whistle 24/7 will help in that endeavor.

He ain't wrong.

Cat?  (checks her profile)  Kinda like mine.  She's about 17 years old, and starting to have a little trouble hopping up on my bed, where she spends most of the time.

I assume he thinks they fly to Mexico and then walk across the border, like the refugees from Belarus to Poland. Far easier doing that than coming to USA On a tourist visa, apparently.

He is not a smart person.

A wall in the Atlantic ocean would be technically difficult. Maybe more of a curtain would work?

Even more pathetic is that it probably does.

They literally have nothing else aside from whining like petulant teenagers.
