TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): You're the governor. Why don't you just say, any person with military and law enforcement experience can join up. We're starting our own force, it's volunteer. Or just go to Midland, Dallas, and Houston and get donors to fund it, they would. I'd send you money, everyone would send you money and we're going to stop this on behalf of the state of Texas and the United States. You could do that. The Biden people would back down in the face of that determination. Why not?


People would send you money. If you started up a voluntary fund -- send Greg Abbott money -- people would put you in their wills. I mean, you'd probably be president of the United States if you did that. I'm serious, if you took control and closed the border, which you can do, you would be a folk hero sung about by future generations around the campfire. I just think it's that simple. Texas, once again, takes a stand against an invasion. It's not the first time you've done it, I think you should do it again.
