Texas Deploys National Guard to Help at Border

Texas Deploys National Guard to Help at Border

Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is sending 500 National Guard troops and 1,200 state police officers to assist border patrol agents as they struggle to manage an influx of migrants. 

“We will work to step up and try to fill the gap that the federal government is leaving open by making sure we deploy every resource, whether it be Department of Public Safety or Texas National Guard, whatever we need to do,” said Abbott Tuesday during a press conference in Mission. “Texas is going to fight for the safety and security of our state.” 

The reinforcements, known as “Operation Lone Star,” will join 3,600 National Guard troops stationed at the border during the Trump Administration. 

Hundreds of thousands of migrants – including record numbers of children – have flocked to the US-Mexico border since President Biden’s inauguration. There have been more apprehensions so far this year than in all of 2020. And without adequate housing, border patrol agents have to keep unaccompanied minors in cells meant for adults. 

“This crisis is a result of President Biden’s open border policies,” continued Abbott. “It invites illegal immigration and is creating a humanitarian crisis in Texas right now that will grow increasingly worse by the day.”

During his first days in office, President Biden cancelled Trump’s Border Wall and replaced his “Remain in Mexico” policy with a catch-and-release program that relies on migrants to show up to court themselves. According to Texas reporter Valerie Gonzalez, the migrants are not even tested for COVID unless they show symptoms. 

“I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it,” said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. He is a native of Cuba whose parents fled to Florida after the Cuban Revolution. “The men and women of the Department of Homeland Security are working around the clock, seven days a week, to ensure that we do not have a crisis at the border.”

Experts at the Government Accountability Office say we will need military support at the border for the next three years or more. 

Author’s Note: With Biden (and his handlers) in control, the states have to protect themselves. Abbott’s use of the National Guard may exacerbate the political divide, but it will also offer a successful example for other GOP-led states to follow.

    Wouldn’t we love to send all of our homeless, welfare recipients and criminals to their country? Trump had everyone jumping thru his hoops. They had to stay in Mexico. He told the Mexican pres and all those south of Mexico’s border “NO MORE MONEY.” And take care of your people we won’t. I wish I could say I care but I don’t. If their presidents don’t care then neither do I. All they want is to get them out of their country and on our medical and our dime. A free ride. Sorry no sympathy here.

    Just love it the Homeland Security fella from Cuba says….” we’re doing all we can to ensure we don’t have a crisis at the border”. Really you ignorant MARXIST. There already is a crisis at the border and these elected hiding behind a wall in DC, Biden and Pelosi, Schumer and all the rest of you real insurrectionists, insist WALLS DONT WORK? The wall was paid for, supplies purchased. Contacts. LEt, how can Biden, not right in thd head and his communist minders get away with that? The companies should just build it.

    Oh and this, Trump left zguden with a mess at birder plus broken system. Nancy Nancy, tongue thruster Nancy, you ,liar! You people in DC have said do YEARS! VOTEd for YEARS, to build the wall and reform immigration. Your word and votes are worthless. How can any American not see the truth here? I’m so angry! Go fund me probably would not allow we the people to donate to build/ finish the wall since they are now WOKE!

    Can Gov. Abbott build a “Texas fence” just inside the line between Texas and Mexico?
    Texas would have their own ‘border wall’.
    If Texans have their own border wall, then they can enforce the guidelines as they decide to set them regarding illegal immigrants
    The Untied States should have no jurisdiction (one would think!!!!) if the wall belongs to Texas.
    It is called “STATES RIGHTS” ……

    -Illegals that sneak across the border are CRIMINALS.
    -Did Democrat Politicians swear an Oath of office to Uphold the Constitution and protect American Citizens?

    -Yet Democrats Break the Law when they allow in: MURDERERS, MS-13, DRUG DEALERS, RAPISTS, ARMS DEALERS, CHILD MOLESTERS, etc..
    -Most have Covid.
    -Kamala, the Criminal, will BAIL THEM OUT OF JAIL
    -When Democrats do not honor the Oath they swore to uphold they are Breaking the Law and deserve to be thrown in Prison.

    -Yet Democrats keep a fence with National Guard around DC to protect themselves.
    -Democrats do not give a CRAP about American citizens.
    -Democrats consider American citizens beneath themselves.

    -ILLEGAL ALIEN Criminals do NOT DESERVE TAXPAYER BENEFITS.
    -Is that why Democrats needed to ILLEGALLY pass their PARTISAN $1.9 TRILLION “COVID STIMULUS BILL”?
    -That is really a DEMOCRAT “SLUSH” FUND
    -To STEAL Taxpayer money to pay for ILLEGAL ALIENS?
    -Just because there are more Democrats in the House, does not mean they are Above the Law and can Break the Law at will.
    -Democrats are still subject to the Constitution, even if they vote against following it.
    -When Democrats Steal Taxpayer money and give it to Criminals who Unlawfully Enter this country, they are Breaking the Law AGAIN.

    -Democrat Theft of Taxpayer Money through knowingly Bloated Stimulus “Slush” Bills (Thou Shall Not Steal) (Thou Shall Not Covet Thy Neighbors Goods) is Illegal.
    -Democrats who Break the Law deserve to be thrown in Prison..
    -Democrats are NOT Above The Law.
