Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been rushed to hospital on Sunday evening from his Wichita Falls residence, spokesperson confirmed to the press.
“Paramedics could not treat him home as they described his condition as critical”, the spokesperson said.
Greg Abbott is said to have collapsed at home few minutes after having dinner.
The governor made headlines last Friday after he expressed concerns about states having to cover the costs to educate “illegal immigrant” children, a comment that drew swift criticism as many in the state are still recovering from a mass shooting in the border town of El Paso, where the shooter specifically targeted Mexicans.
