Texas Governor Greg Abbott has sent the state’s national guard to protect the southern border.
This is technically supposed to be the job of the federal government, but Biden simply refuses to do it.
The people of Texas are lucky that Abbott is willing to step up to the plate.
Texas National Guard Takes ‘Unprecedented’ Steps to Protect Border
Days after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared an invasion over surging illegal immigration numbers, the Texas National Guard is deploying tank-like armored vehicles along the U.S.-Mexico border.
According to documents obtained by the Army Times and Texas Tribune, the M113 armored personnel carrier vehicles will be deployed at 10 positions along the border. Additionally, the Texas National Guard will also increase “aircraft flights and security efforts.”
“These actions are part of a larger strategy to use every available tool to fight back against the record-breaking level of illegal immigration,” the Military Department said in a statement. “The Texas National Guard is taking unprecedented measures to safeguard our border and to repel and turn-back immigrants trying to cross the border illegally.” …
In a letter sent to President Biden last week, Abbott said the federal government’s “inaction” at the border has forced his hand.
“Two years of inaction on your part now leave Texas with no choice but to escalate our efforts to secure our State,” reads the letter.
Thank goodness someone is willing to do this.
I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion.
I'm using that constitutional authority, & other authorization & Executive Orders to keep our state & country safe: pic.twitter.com/2Jt5HEMgp5

Texas Military Department service members work side by side with the Texas Department of Public Safety & other law enforcement to stop illegal activities from crossing the Texas-Mexico border.

Biden’s handling of the border is a disgrace.
