I'm ordering @TexasGuard to assist @TxDPS  in enforcing Texas law by arresting lawbreakers at the border. More manpower is needed to enforce federal & state criminal laws including for criminal trespassing, illegal entry, smuggling, & human trafficking.

Covid Vaccinations are on the rise again. In the past 3 weeks the 7-day average of doses provided have increased almost 50%. Most Texans who qualify already have gotten a vaccine. Many others are deciding to get one now to protect against the fast spreading Delta variant.

The time for government mask mandates is over—now is the time for personal responsibility. In May, I signed an executive order prohibiting mask mandates by gov't entities. Every Texan has the right to choose whether they will wear a mask or have their children wear masks.

Happy Heavenly Birthday to my dear mother, Doris. Her grace through adversity taught me to overcome the accident that left me in a wheelchair. I thank her for the drive, grit & perseverance she instilled in me. She is forever missed.

I just announced Texas is OPEN 100%. EVERYTHING. I also ended the statewide mask mandate.

Throwing Texans in jail whose biz's shut down through no fault of their own is wrong. I am eliminating jail for violating an order, retroactive to April 2, superseding local orders. Criminals shouldn’t be released to prevent COVID-19 just to put business owners in their place.

Texas swiftly processed more than 11 million votes & quickly announced winners across 2 time zones. To ensure transparency we allow poll watchers from each party to participate in the voting & tally processes. What is happening in some states undermines trust in elections.

I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state. @TexasGuard 

A candid moment with @realDonaldTrump ⁩ as he departs the @WEF  Conference in Davos.

Today Texas reported: * 0 Covid related deaths--the only time that's happened since data was tracked in March, 2020. * the fewest Covid cases in over 13 months * the lowest 7-day Covid positivity rate ever * the lowest Covid hospitalizations in 11 months. Thanks, Texans!

This shutdown order by Austin isn't allowed. Period. My executive order stops cities like Austin from arbitrarily shutting down businesses. The city has a responsibility to enforce existing orders, not make new ones.
