Gov Abbott sends National Guard troops to make arrests at Texas border


Texas Governor Greg Abbott ordered the Texas National Guard on Tuesday to assist the Department of Public Safety in the state to arrest the record number of illegal migrants unlawfully crossing the state’s southern border with Mexico.

“To respond to this disaster and secure the rule of law at our Southern border, more manpower is needed—in addition to the troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and soldiers from the Texas National Guard I have already deployed there—and DPS needs help in arresting those who are violating state law,” Abbott stated in a letter addressed to Major Gen. Tracy R. Norris of the Texas Military Department.

“By virtue of the power and authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the State of Texas, I hereby order that the Texas National Guard assist DPS in enforcing Texas law by arresting lawbreakers at the border,” he continued. more

  1. …and then do what with them?

    Seriously, its a nice thought, but you’re gonna pack the prison full in a day or two, and you cant afford to hold them forever, and you have no legal power to deport.

    So seriously, other than make a show, what will this ultimately accomplish?

    …other than an Abbott campaign spot, of course. Perhaps that’s the whole point…

  2. Finger print them and send them back with a warning not to return. Or just fly them to DC and dump them. A half a dozen packed flights should wake someone in Washington up.

  3. They can put them on a bus to DC. Dump them in front of the democrats and tell them to take 3 or 4 home with them.

  4. Sheriff Joe used to put his criminals in tents out in the desert, in pink prison jumpsuits, and feed them 2,000 calories a day including bologna sandwiches for lunch.
    – Sheriff Joe was an American hero.
    Or, as Anonymous says, send them on buses to DC.

  5. What ever ulterior motives may be, at least someone is taking illegal immigration seriously enough to stem the tide. Biden or Chlamydia have done absolutely nothing, but create pathways and gateways to huge numbers of illegal immigrants.

  6. You cannot import over 2 million third Worlders 90% of whom have Covid19 and carrying the Delta Variant plus many diseases out USA physicians have never seen, heard of or studied. Yet they are being brought in diseases and all for the Americans who do pay taxes to support forever. Traitor Joe is importing crime, disease, drugs, and poverty for Americans who will have to support all of these uneducated diseased parasitic worst of the worst. of humanit. Joe is counting on them to keep the Demomarxists in office forever as he swithces the USA over into a full blown COMMUNIST UTOPIA or enslaes the USA to CHINAy

  7. I say; let the vigilantes deal with the problem. Phuck the liberal courts, the liberal laws and the commie intrusion.
