After Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) took a moment on Christmas to criticize the faith of his governor, Greg Abbott (R), the congressman had a follow-up message to other “heartless” Republican executives whom he smugly referred to as “pr–ks.”
No matter the deflection, the border crisis exacerbated to record levels during President Joe Biden’s administration isn’t going anywhere. While governors like Abbott along with Doug Ducey (R-Ariz.) and Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) have worked to address the problem and force corporate media to cover the oft-ignored problem, Democrats have continued to point fingers and demonize it.
Partaking in just such behavior Tuesday, Castro joined MSNBC’s Alicia Menendez to decry what liberals have considered mere political stunts after another round of illegal aliens had been bussed to Washington, D.C. and dropped outside Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence at the Naval Observatory. The host prompted, “I wonder what your message is to the Abbotts, to the Duceys, to the DeSantises of the world.”
To that, the Texas lawmaker responded, “Well, I would ask them to stop being pr–ks, first of all, because that’s what they’re doing. And stop being heartless. But also to actually help us solve this issue, solve this challenge rather than just become the next Republican president in a few years.”
On Christmas, Castro had tweeted “Worthless @GovAbbott dropping off people with no money and no means on Christmas Eve in 15 degree weather near the VP’s residence. How Christian of you, Greg Abbott. Being a heartless POS isn’t going to make you the next Republican President.”

Of course, as the congressman endeavored to foist responsibility on the right while Democratic calls for amnesty rang out like a clarion call to aliens who’ve yet to enter the country illegally, the veil of Castro’s blame game momentarily slipped during the interview when he mentioned, “It’s going to take a lot better faith among Republicans to actually do something about immigration rather than just using the chaos and everything,” he stated before correcting, “or creating chaos and using that as their number one political boogeyman, which is what they do now.”
Abbott hadn’t remained silent while smears were leveled against him and, as previously reported, the governor’s spokesperson Renae Eze released a statement that read, “The White House is full of a bunch of hypocrites, led by the Hypocrite-in-Chief who has been flying planeloads of migrants across the country and oftentimes in the cover of night. These migrants willingly chose to go to Washington, D.C., having signed a voluntary consent waiver available in multiple languages upon boarding that they agreed on the destination.”
“[T]hey were processed and released by the federal government, who are dumping them at historic levels in Texas border towns like El Paso,” Eze went on, “which recently declared a state of emergency because of the Biden-made crisis. Instead of their hypocritical complaints about Texas providing much-needed relief to our overrun and overwhelmed border communities, President Biden and Border Czar Harris need to step up and do their jobs to secure the border–something they continue failing to do.”
As to making political moves to advance one’s own career, Castro can speak from experience there as he and his twin brother Julián Castro have both made moves to build their name recognition leading the latter to be bandied about as a possible running mate for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign before he mounted his own bid in the 2020 presidential election; a campaign managed by the former.
