A joint statement by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) President Brandon Judd released Thursday, May 12, 2022, attacked the Biden Administration for providing baby formula to illegal immigrant holding facilities as American parents scramble amid a nationwide shortage of the product.
“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.”
“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. 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.”
Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (MTG) also delivered remarks about Biden’s failures with the continual food security and pricing crisis.
Greene identifies the origin and outcome of stress within the supply chain caused by government intervention into the overall system. MTG then notes that FDA rules and regulations make supply interruptions worse.
Additionally, in the background of the federal DHS and HHS contracts for food products, including baby food/formula, most of those federal contracts contain a ‘first right‘ or ‘prioritized continuity‘ provision, creating a distribution outcome (via contractual mandate) where illegal aliens end up with preferential allocation.
