Cartels use TikTok to recruit, Governor Abbott says
“TikTok should be shamed, condemned and sued…” the Texas governor said.
WESLACO, Texas — On Thursday, Governor Greg Abbott met with 12 attorneys general from across the country in Weslaco, Texas, to discuss state border security.

“Texas is fully responding to the Biden administration’s failure to address the disaster on our border, and our efforts are bolstered by working with other heads of state across the country,” the governor said. Abbott. “Like Texas, the attorneys general here today are working day and night to provide the safety and security that Americans demand and deserve, and I thank them for their continued support and efforts to secure our border and ensure the safety communities across America.”
