Governor Abbott Sends National Guard to Protect Texas Border

Texas Republican Governor Gregg Abbott is sending National Guard troops to the southern border to protect the state from a surge of migrants seeking to enter the U.S. illegally.

Abbott announced the launch of Operation Lone Star in a press release on Saturday to address the crisis at the Texas-Mexico border.

The governor’s decision followed a meeting with Colonel Steve McCraw, Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), “on safety and securing threats,” on the state’s border with Mexico as a result of the surge of illegal migrants.

In the press release, Abbott blamed President Biden for renewing the “catch and release” policy.

While President Biden refuses to call it a crisis, Reuters is reporting, “U.S. border agents detained nearly 100,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in February,” and it is the largest influx of illegal migrants since 2019.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently arrested 125 illegal aliens in Laredo Sector – this also documents the number of people seeking illegal entry into the U.S.

Arizona Republican Representative Andy Biggs criticized President Biden over the border crisis.

Republicans are not the only critics of President Biden.

Democrat Texas Representative Henry Cuellar is also expressing concern about the number of illegal aliens released in Texas.

President Biden is creating a health and humanitarian crisis at the southern border and now it’s up to the states to take action to protect their citizens from the surge of illegal aliens coming into their states.
