Greg Abbott mobilizes the Texas National Guard to protect the southern border
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has dispatched the state’s National Guard to protect the southern border.
This should be the job of the federal government, but Biden simply refuses to do it.
The people of Texas are lucky that Abbott is ready to step up to the plate.

Texas National Guard is taking ‘unprecedented’ steps to protect border
Days after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced an invasion over rising illegal immigration, the Texas National Guard is deploying tank-like armored vehicles along the US-Mexico border.
According to documents obtained by the Army Times and the Texas Tribune, the M113 infantry fighting vehicles will be stationed at 10 positions along the border. In addition, the Texas National Guard will also increase “aircraft flights and security efforts.”
“These actions are part of a broader strategy to use all available means to combat record-breaking levels of illegal immigration,” the military ministry said in a statement. “The Texas National Guard is taking unprecedented action to protect our border and to deter and reject immigrants attempting to cross the border illegally.” …
In a letter sent to President Biden last week, Abbott said the federal government’s “inaction” on the border compelled him to act.
“Two years of inaction on your part now leaves Texas with no choice but to escalate our efforts to secure our state,” the letter said.
Thank God someone is willing to do this.
I have invoked the invasion clauses of the US and Texas constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented action to defend our state against invasion.

Biden’s handling of the border is a disgrace.
