To the delight of conservatives, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has decided that if Joe Biden doesn’t defend the southern border, he will.
“Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced the deployment of the state’s National Guard and State Troopers to respond to the growing border crisis,” according to Breitbart.
“Governor Abbott announced Operation Lone Star ‘to combat the smuggling of people and drugs into Texas’ on Saturday. The operation will integrate the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) with the National Guard, Abbott said. He is ordering the deployment of air, ground, marine, and tactical border security assets to high threat areas. [emphasis added]
“‘The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,’ the governor said in a written statement Saturday evening. ‘Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans. We will surge the resources and law enforcement personnel needed to confront this crisis.‘” [emphasis added]
