Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is facing some harsh criticism Wednesday after White House press secretary Jen Psaki accused the Republican of causing “significant disruptions to the food and automobile supply chain.”

Psaki released a statement that claimed Abbott’s order for troopers to do more thorough truck inspections at the borders has impacted the U.S. economy.

“Governor Abbott’s unnecessary and redundant inspections of trucks transiting ports of entry between Texas and Mexico are causing significant disruptions to the food and automobile supply chains, delaying manufacturing, impacting jobs, and raising prices for families in Texas and across the country,” Psaki said in a statement.

Abbott has ordered state troopers to inspect commercial trucks after the vehicles have been searched by federal officers.

In the statement, Psaki went on to claim Abbott’s policy has resulted in truckers experiencing delays that have exceeded more than five hours and a 60% drop in commercial traffic at the border.

“The continuous flow of legitimate trade and travel and CBP’s [Customs and Border Protection] ability to do its job should not be obstructed. Governor Abbott’s actions are impacting people’s jobs, and the livelihoods of hardworking American families,” Psaki said.

Shortly after the release of the statement, Abbott’s name began trending on Twitter, with people slamming the governor for driving up prices.

“Raise your hand if you know Greg Abbott is one of the worst Governors in our country,” one user posted.

Another user suggested Abbott’s decision to delay trucks at the border was a campaign ploy.

“Greg Abbott will literally commit economic terrorism against Texas and the US, disrupt supply chains, and inflict sadistic cruelty on the people he should be governing—just to get his name on Fox ‘News’ as a form of free campaign advertising,” the user posted.

Criticism against Abbott comes amid as the first bus carrying migrants from Texas arrived in Washington.

Abbott previously ordered the Texas Division of Emergency Management to transport migrants who illegally cross the border, to D.C. after Biden ended Title 42.

The program allowed the government to stop migrants from entering the U.S. amid concerns surrounding the pandemic.
