Texas Gov. Greg Abbot deploys National Guard

In response to an escalating border crisis brought on by President Biden’s immigration policies, Texas governor Greg Abbot has announced that he is deploying the National Guard to the border.

“Today Texas launched Operation Lone Star to respond to the border crisis,” Abbott tweeted Saturday. “It deploys Nat’l Guard + DPS Officers + air, ground, marine, & tactical border security assets to deny Mexican Cartels & smugglers the ability to move drugs & people into Texas.”

“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” said Abbott. “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.”

The Washington Examiner reports:

Border patrol officials are anticipating 117,000 unaccompanied children will arrive at the border in 2021. Officials are expecting to have encountered nearly 400,000 people crossing the border between October 2020 through February.

The Biden administration last week denied a crisis is occurring on the border, with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas instead describing the situation as a “challenge.”

Biden can try to avoid the word “crisis” but the crisis is here whether he likes it or not. Thankfully, Gov. Abbot is stepping into the leadership vacuum left by Biden’s lack thereof.

  1. I think that, not that I can, That we need to launch an investigation into what is really going on in the White House. I don’t think that Biden is running the country. And I would like to find out who is, that was not elected to. We need to get an independent investigation, I don’t think that we could trust Wray, or anyone in the administration. We need an outside investigation, into what exactly is going on in the White House, and we need it now!

  2. I really agree with all of you and yes we can be proud of the Texas Governor and hope many of the other states will follow suite.

  3. Don’t trust the experts, don’t trust the CDC, don’t trust the FDA. They lied to Trump, they lied to the people. How many people died because they lied about things like treatments that doctors around the world said were safe. Why did our own FDA,CDC, say that they were dangerous, now they say that they are safe. These people should rounded up, and put in jail. I agree that we should trust Americans, not insult the

  4. Biden’s new plan to issue covid relief and save taxpayer money. He says it is foolproof, absolute genius. This so good that he has to in his words thank Jen Psaki for her contribution to this idea. He said he will wait till the end of 2021 at which time he will issue $2,000.00 IOUs. to everyone that has a job. Then he will raise their taxes by 50%. I just have to say that it is about time. We will finally get some relief???

  5. Rep. Ilhan Omar calls out Biden, Dems over stimulus: We’re ‘sending money to fewer people’ than Trump.
    Ilhan is right, Trump gave people far more money than all the Democrats combined. And he did so in a unique way. He did something that the Democrats would consider immoral.

    He gave them


  6. We here in Texas are so thankful that we have a governor that has some common sense. Unlike states like New York or California, that treat their citizens like their slaves. We have a governor that understands people and their needs. We have a leader that leads, he does not try to dominate the citizens in his state. He does not treat people like he owns them. He gives them the respect that they deserve.
    Unlike this so called president that wants to kill Texans, by importing illegals to spreading diseases. They are trying to come in when they have diseases which they are then carrying to other place, and get other people infected, this is nothing more than biological warfare, that the president of the USA is conducting against the people, of the country that he is suppose to protect. This just goes to show you that he is really mentally sick, and needs help. Someone tell Jill that she should start getting serious about this.

    1. Jill Biden knew the condition of her husband and encouraged him to run because she wanted to be the First Lady. I blame her for allowing this to happen. She should be on trial for this crime to her husband. Shame on Jill Biden. I have zero respect for her.

  7. Well All I can say is that if our governor needs any additional help at the border he only has to ask. There will be thousands and thousands their to help the National Guard. Bless their hearts. We will be fully locked and loaded.

  8. Biden and the democrats do not see any emergency at the border because they have there heads in the up and lock position

  9. Texas apparently has a Governor with some common sense, and I wish them the best in dealing with the illegal aliens and protecting all the residents of legal residents of Texas.
    The Texans are fortunate to have a Governor who can “reason and react”! In Minnesota we’ve got one who can do neither!!
    Carry on!!!

  10. love what he is doing. Let them come but do it legally. I hope Arizona follows suit. Texas you have a great leader.

  11. It truly is time to consider strongly succeeding from America. We are no longer United and being destroyed by Evil!

  12. Load the illegal immigrants on buses and drop them off in D.C., the Democrat stronghold.
    They have the fence to protect them.

  13. Send the military and the malitia to these states to keep these ILLEGALS out of the country….Send them to pelisi’s house also…be careful pelosi’s face is about to explode from all the plastic…..

  14. Is Biden and the Democrats going to defend our country? Sure doesn’t look like it. I guess Texas will have to defend our southern border.
    Maybe we need to break away and be an independent country again, if our own nation can’t secure our borders. Let’s take a vote.

  15. Why not ship all of the illegals to Delaware so those idiots can see the results of repeatedly reelecting Biden for 47 years even though he lied about his scholastic records and during his 47 years he did not create any legislation to improve life in this state except for himself and his drug addict son.
    How could the citizens of Delaware be this dense?

    1. This is an observation I want to make as I agree with you 100%. Ignorance is rampant all over the USA is my comment since the schools were allowed to be “dumbed down” since the late 1960’s.

    2. You have to remember, the residents of Delaware are FLAMING Liberals, which means they’ll swallow any line that’s fed them. If Hitler was a Democrat, the people of Delaware would’ve voted for him. That’s how naive and gullible they are. Just look how Biden fooled them for 47 years
      Now Delaware can post the following sign at their border; “ Welcome to Delaware, home of Joe Biden, the first non-President President of the United States”.

  16. Great for Texas. This could be stopped if the republicans in at least four of the battleground states did their job and let honest audits of the last election happen to settle the question of who should be in the office of President and at least 4 senate seats which were stolen. Plenty of evidence and solid proof that fraud and foreign interference was involved. Also, under the Constitution the military should do their job and defend the Constitution and our Republic by relieving the bogus Biden administration. They supposedly have all the evidence and other proof to stop the steal and put the correct president in office. Sad that no one in power who cares about our Republic will do anything. So good conservatives in the red states have to stand up and back against Biden and the leftists democrats.

  17. Yes! All border states need to put their national guard etc in place to protect our borders. Biden is an empty suit does whatever his handlers tell him. Selected NOT elected by we the people!

    1. It’s funny but dumb Biden and Nancy piglousy want to limit Americans from interstate travel , but let stranger crossing the border with their diseases and lack of education cane roam freely without being vaccinated . Demented joe is an idiot. So is his conniving wife. Hypocritical bums.

  18. What is the matter with our “so called” President Biden??? Is he out of his mind? Can’t he see that what he is doing is ruining our United States?? Is he doing this just to get more illegal voters to vote for him?? Get Pelosi out of office as well!! She thinks “she” is in charge – rather, SHE has been “in charge” just “TOO LONG!! Due to the “fraudulent” election, we should “get rid of ALL and begin anew!!

    1. He doesn’t care ! He will not have to have the burden of his BS choices because his time is short!

    2. First check (if possible) to see if Sleepy is ordering all the border crap or if it is really the Ho and Soro’s idea. sure they are at least pushing him that direcrion. And bet the Ho is making a fortune off he cut of the drug and sumggling operations opened back up.

    3. ajk: the puppet president Biden has dementia. He has handlers who tells him what he needs to do and say. Jill should be charged with abuse and neglect. Who would believe that our great nation would have a President that is in decline mentally and is being covered up by Democrats! Think about all the Executive Orders that he has signed!

    4. Mr. Biden is not in charge. He signs whatever they put in front of him and knows not what he is signing. No ability to comprehend what he is doing.

  19. GOD BLESS TEXAS AND HER GOVERNOR FOR HAVING THE COURAGE TO SAY “NO” TO THESE ILLEGALS! Biden is stupid and just does what his communist cabinet says to do! Don’t Mess With TEXAS ! Wish other governors had the same courage to say NO to these evil orders that put our LEGAL CITIZENS AT RISK!! PLUS THE ADDED FINANCIAL ISSUES THAT DEPRIVE OUR LEGAL CITIZENS FROM THE HELP THEY NEED!!

    1. Lets hope that the rest of the border states do the same but we know that the nuts in California will not ,too bad for the people that will have to take on more illegals because of this stupid so called president!

        1. especially since beijing biden lost to Trump in 2020. 80 million votes for Trump. 68 million, biden. Can you imagine? I knew biden would be playing with matches when it came to both President Trump’s brilliant foreign and domestic policies. I’m surprised that so many are so shocked with all his unexamined “decisions”.

    2. I hope our Arizona governor grows some and recalls our Ng back from DC and puts them on the border. This is political bs and the idiots playing house in the wh should be taken out and made an example of for putting American lives in danger!
