A report published by the Russian newspaper “Vezglyad” said that against the background of the intensification of the migration crisis, the conflict between the republican states and the federal center in the United States has worsened.
He reported that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced the deployment of his state's National Guard forces to the state of Texas to help authorities there take necessary measures to eliminate the threat posed by irregular immigrants at the country's southern border. Could.
The author of the report, Yevgeny Pozdnyakov, attributed to DeSantis that states have every right to independently protect lands adjacent to other countries, stressing that he does not want to be part of that federal government. Washington considered these actions to be “insanity”, describing it as “trying to remove these barriers to allow more illegal immigrants to enter.”
reflection of contradictions
The author said that representatives of the Texas National Guard took control of Shelby Park and began taking independent measures to stop the migrants. Previously, state officials had not allowed federal Border Patrol boats to serve in the designated area, saying that, in general, the state's relations with Washington are traditionally difficult, and the immigration issue is only an example of deep contradictions. Is a reflection of.
He said Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt would not rule out sending a National Guard unit from his state to Texas, criticizing President Joe Biden's administration's decision to begin demolishing a barbed wire wall built by area residents. Doing this has been called madness.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that if President Joe Biden had dealt with real domestic issues, and not tried to pick a fight with Russian President Vladimir Putin, from whom he must first learn to work for the benefit of his country, Then everything would have been different.
unless an agreement is reached
Experts say that in the current situation in America, there is great potential for tension to increase, as the conflicting parties have adopted a very tough stance and have practically refused to compromise on the issue. At the same time, the ongoing conflict between the states and the federal center will have decisive importance in the upcoming elections.
Russian political expert Boris Mizov says that despite the fact that the obvious opposition in the Republican states is loudly demanding the need to solve the immigration crisis, their main ambition is the fate of former President Donald Trump, as they want to see their candidate. Want upcoming elections.
Mizoev believes that if the federal government decides to allow Trump to participate in the electoral race, all contradictions will gradually disappear. However, Mizzov says, increasing the degree of tension and entering into a real confrontation with Washington is not in the interests of Texas or Florida, and the rhetoric of their governors is still harsher than their real intentions.
Mizoev predicted that if the Biden administration continues to oppress Trump, and nominates the current president for a second term, Republicans will likely follow the Ukrainian scenario, declaring the head of state illegitimate. In such a situation the situation can become very bad.
Vladimir Vasiliev, chief researcher of the Institute of the United States and Canada of the Russian Academy of Sciences, believes that the confrontation between the southern states and the federal center should be taken into account especially in the context of the upcoming presidential elections. In the United States, states where Republican governors are in power are trying to raise tension levels to make Biden look like a weak leader.
