Amid a spate of illegal border crossings and ahead of a polar vortex, over 400 Texas National Guard troops were deployed to El Paso Monday to stem the flow of criminal noncitizens into the U.S. as part of the state’s broader “enhanced border security effort.”
Armed guardsmen and soldiers have since formed a line along the banks of the Rio Grande to prevent river crossers from surrendering to border guards.
The border guards behind the line would not deal with the illegal immigrants, but would instead be intent on the guards repelling them. reported the Texas Tribune.
Guardsmen used Spanish when informing would-be border crossers that they had no chance of crossing it and advising them to try to enter the country through a legal port of entry.
The Texas Department of Defense released images of troops from the 36th Infantry Division erecting a concertina wire barrier to prevent illegal crossings.
More than 1,000 yards of barbed wire was laid this week, according to the Texas Tribune.
Fox News’ Bill Melugin released a video showing members of the TNG preparing for an attack by illegal aliens, with Humvees strategically positioned.
El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser announced was placed under a state of emergency over the weekend, suggesting that neither citizens nor illegal aliens were safe.
The Texas Department of Defense announced Monday that the TNG activated and deployed air transport from the 136th Airlift Wing in Fort Worth, which had been on alert since last week.
Accordingly, four C-130J cargo planes expedited the “movement of soldiers and equipment to El Paso” as part of Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s security initiative.
“The deployment includes a Security Response Force composed of elements of the 606th Military Police Battalion mobilizing to El Paso, Texas,” the Texas Department of Defense said. “A second Security Response Force from 236th MP Company remains on high alert and ready to deploy to other areas of the border if necessary.”
A Tuesday expression from the governor’s office indicated that Abbott is working with the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Department of Emergency Management, in addition to the Texas Department of Defense to stem the flow of criminal non-citizens.
This effort comes over a month after Abbott declared an “invasion” on the southern border and indicated he will take a series of “unprecedented measures… to protect our state and our country.”
While the TNG and other state forces hold the line, Texas expects the federal government to step up aid at the border, which the president has yet to visit.
dept wrote to President Joe Biden on Tuesday, saying, “This terrible crisis affecting frontier communities in Texas is a disaster of your own making.”
“Texas has borne a unilateral burden caused by your open borders policies. The need to address this crisis is not the responsibility of border states like Texas,” Abbott wrote. “Instead, the U.S. Constitution dictates that it is your job, Mr. President, to defend our country’s borders, regulate our nation’s immigration, and administer those who seek refuge here.”
The governor called on Biden to use federal funds to “address the dire problems you have caused” and “fulfill the duties the US Constitution requires of you.”
While TNG has increased its presence in anticipation of the end of Title 42, which many expect would open the floodgates to an alarming number of attempts by criminal non-citizens to steal into the US, Trump-era politics remain temporary in force per order of Chief Justice John Roberts.
Despite the Department of Homeland Security newer approval Nevertheless, the Biden government notes that thousands of the most recent deportations were Title 42 deportations renewed his request for the Supreme Court to overturn the directive.
Leeser, the mayor of El Paso, suggested that 20,000 illegal aliens “are ready to come to El Paso” — many more of whom can remain in the US if Title 42 is abolished.
According to the New York PostEl Paso’s emergency shelters are all occupied, its illegal alien detention center has a capacity of 1,500, and around 800 people have been released into the streets.
This video appears to show some of the hundreds of criminal non-citizens now roaming the streets of El Paso.
