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

The Texas National Guard is taking “unprecedented” steps to secure the border
The Texas National Guard is deploying tank-like armored vehicles along the U.S.-Mexico border, days after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared an invasion over rising illegal immigration.
According to documents obtained by the Army Times and the Texas Tribune, M113 armored personnel carriers will be deployed 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 larger strategy to use all available tools to combat record levels of illegal immigration,” the Department of Defense said in a statement. “The Texas National Guard is taking unprecedented action to protect our border and to deter and return immigrants attempting to cross the border illegally.” …
In a letter to President Biden last week, Abbott said the federal government’s “inaction” on the border forced his hand.
“Your two years of inaction now leaves Texas with no choice but to increase our efforts to keep our state safe,” the letter reads.
Thank God someone is willing to do it.
I invoked the occupation clauses of the United States and Texas constitutions to give Texas full authority to take unprecedented measures to defend our state from invasion.

Service members of the Texas Military Department work hand-in-hand with the Texas Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies to stop illegal activities from crossing the Texas-Mexico border.

Biden’s border management is a disgrace.
