    “A coalition of 15 Republican governors, led by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, is set to converge on the southern border this weekend alongside a conservative convoy known as "God's Army."

    The events aim to highlight the escalating illegal immigration crisis and draw attention to what they perceive as the detrimental impact of President Joe Biden's open-border policies, reported the Washington Examiner.

    Abbott will host leaders from 14 other red states in McAllen, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley on Sunday afternoon. The gathering will include a briefing on the state's efforts to enhance border security and a subsequent press conference addressing the consequences of what Abbott deems "President Joe Biden's reckless open border policies."…

    …This caravan plans to visit various locations along the southern border, concluding with rallies in Arizona, California, and Texas on Saturday.

    "The Take Our Border Back leadership team asks you to join us in praying for our nation, elected officials, and uniting our country," states the convoy's website. "Our peaceful convoy will help all Americans have a respectful conversation about the future of our country. The time has come to unite as a country and pray."…

    Way to go convoy. Send Biden a message he won’t soon forget. We are uniting the country against him and his border policy here and now.

    This is a great thing to see. Many of the governors and state AG’s standing with Texas against our lawless federal executive branch regime. And now a large amount of the American people mobilized to stand with the people of Texas and the governors and AG’s against the president.

    I see you dropped the 700,000 number

    If Republicans cared they would have been pushing for meaningful reform in congress over the past decade instead of doing these stunts every 4 years — anyone remember the trump caravans?

    I think 700 would still be ambitious…

    And they have exactly the deal on the border that they want, sitting on the table right now…….according to their own politicians…!

    From the link:
    Caravan organizer Kim Yeater expressed hope for a massive turnout of 700,000 protesters, although current participation numbers have fallen short of that goal.

    Understatement of the Century...
    They would be lucky to draw 700...
    And, to think:
    Some people (AT THIS SITE) were (just days ago) making claims like THESE:
    ^Talk about "wishful thinking"...:roflol:

    The argument seems to be that republicans won't make any deal as Biden hasn't done anything and is only doing it for the election.

    My question is what legislation did republicans pass when they had full control of congress and presidency in 2017 and 2018 for the border.

    "God's Army," Oh my ... I'm afraid that every time I see that in your posts, I can only hear, "Puny God," and see that scene with the Hulk.
    Sad. And funny.

    God’s Army? A bit presumptuous. Is this the same army that continues to turn a blind eye to Trump’s rampant immorality?

    Did Trump build the wall and make Mexico pay for it? I want real solutions and all I get from the right are hypocritical partisan posturing, finger pointing and useless campaign chants. How can I trust the right to fix the border issues when they cannot even admit their part in the problem?! Do not take this as my backing the left as I have a lower view of them than I do the right when it comes to the border issue.

    Tired of this self righteous partisan bullshit! Some of us want actual solutions and don’t see good faith actors on either side.

    So the latest I've seen is there is less than a thousand people at the rally ... and "god's army" is now known as the "Puny god's army".

    The 700k was a psy-ops number only. It worked by intimidating the opposition into not showing up and by tying up feds from trying to retake the park even though the convoy never actually entered eagle pass. There were others at Yuma and San Diego.

    I’d say it was a very embarrassing thing to see. Typical maga.

    Congress has been dysfunctional for a very long time. Their role today is the same as the other 2 branches--to protect the corrupt status quo.

    Dysfunctional sure, but only one side runs on the promise of making government as inefficient and ineffectual as possible.

    Government has always been inefficient and ineffectual. That's but one reason the founders created a government of specifically enumerated powers. They knew that humans in government tend to usurp powers not authorized. That has come true with a vengeance in the US.

    The bigger event is today when Abbott and 15 GOP governors stand tall with Texas in defiance of dear leader uncle Joe. We stand with them against him

    They passed a massive tax break bill for the rich. They don’t give a hell about the border when they are in charge.

    So the rally appears to have grown to about 1200 people.
    "Puny God's Rally" indeed.

    I want to make it clear that I have ZERO problem with people holding a peaceful rally, but please just stop with over-hyped BS about the whole event.

    Oh?
    That is the "Bigger Event?
    Then, WHY was so much bandwidth and utter MAGA delusion wasted on hyping the 700,000 bullshit?

    Dude, you were the one who was pushing the 700,000 figure last week! Are you part of the psyops?

    So far this rally looks like a total dud. This was supposed to be led by thousands of semi-trucks. I haven't seen a single one, just a pathetic MAGA-adorned bus and a few dozen regular vehicles, SUVs and pickup trucks. This is shaping up to be a bigger joke than the Canadian truck rally last year that achieved absolutely nothing except unbreathable air and a score of angry motorists who could not get to work.:alcoholic:
