DEVELOPING STORY: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered the National Guard to protect the Lone Star State from a massive invasion of illegal aliens. Watch video below and click here to follow Todd’s Rumble television channel.
“America is not open to people who are trying to come here illegally,” Abbott said. “Texas is doing more than any state in the history of the United States of America to defend our border.”
Abbott said the National Guard will be dispatched to “hotspots along the border to intercept, to repel and to turn back migrants who are trying to enter Texas illegally.”
The Texas National Guard said they are sending hundreds of troops to defend the border from an invading army of illegals.
“These additional forces will bolster the thousands of Texas National Guard service members already assisting local and state law enforcement agencies to secure the border; stop the smuggling of drugs, weapons and people into Texas; and prevent, detect, and interdict transnational criminal behavior between the ports of entry,” the Texas National Guard said in a statement Monday. “We have expanded our capabilities to include boat teams that patrol hundreds of river miles, drones and helicopters that detect illicit activity from the air, and brush teams, security points and roving patrols that block and interdict illegal smuggling (drugs, weapons and people) into Texas,” the statement read.
The Pentagon last week approved the 90-day deployment of 1,500 active-duty Marines and soldiers to deploy across the southwest U.S. border to increase support to an ongoing mission with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They join about 2,500 National Guard members already supporting Border Patrol in non-law enforcement activities.
