Greg Abbott has slammed Joe Biden’s "open border policies", labelling them an "existential threat" after the southern border witnessed an influx of illegal Chinese migrants.
Since the beginning of the fiscal year, more than 24,000 Chinese nationals have crossed the southern border and come into the United States.
That is more than the previous 10 years combined, according to government data.
Over the past decade, fewer than 15,000 Chinese migrants were caught crossing the southern border illegally.

Abbott told Fox News: "It is extraordinarily dangerous because, first of all, as you point out, we have people from China coming here. We also have people on the known terrorist watch list who are coming across the border. And so there's extraordinary dangers, calls to our country by Biden's open border policies."
