(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Texas’s Republican Governor Greg Abbott has announced the deployment of a “tactical border force” of National Guard members to the state’s border with Mexico. He is preparing Texas for a war against illegal alien invaders.
The tactical force is going to “hot spots” on the Southern Border, and its job would be to “intercept, to repel and to turn back migrants” who are attempting illegal entry into the United States, Abbott informed.
The GOP governor spoke at a press conference on Monday at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, which he held to “provide an update on Texas’ unprecedented efforts to respond to President Joe Biden’s ongoing border crisis, as cited by local news outlet KXAN and Newsmax.
Abbott declared that under the Biden administration, the border is set to become “a catastrophic disaster” because Title 42, the Trump-era policy for the quick expulsion of migrants on public health grounds, was set to expire on Thursday, May 11.
He emphasized that Title 42 was a useful tool enabling border agents to ensure the swift deportation of border crossers.
The Texas governor noted his efforts to combat the constant waves of illegal immigrants, among them a doubling-down on his policy to bus migrants to Democrat-run cities such as Washington, DC, New York City, and Chicago.
Abbott vowed that “many thousands” of illegal immigrants would be shipped off north and east “in the coming days.”
A report by The Washington Times pointed out that National Guard troops from the tactical border force were loading into helicopters behind the governor as he spoke from the airfield in Austin.
“They will be deployed to hot spots along the border to intercept, to repel and to turn back migrants who are trying to enter Texas illegally,” he said, stressing the tactical troops would be fully equipped, including with riot gear.
The Times noted that Texas was expected to become the worst-affected US state by the expiration of the Title 42 expulsion powers.
The US Department of Homeland Security, run by Biden’s pro-illegal immigration ally, Alejandro Mayorkas, has made it clear it expects up to 13,000 migrants to be crossing the border once Title 42 ends.
That would mean roughly doubling the 6,000 migrants per day that the US received in March and “shattering already record numbers who’ve streamed into the country illegally in recent years,” Newsmax noted
At the request of the Department of Homeland Security, the Defense Department has sent 1,500 active-duty soldiers and Marines to the border to free up Border Patrol agents from administrative duties.
Abbott has reacted by saying the federal troops would be only “doing paperwork” and that 100 times that number of troops are needed to stop the migrant crisis.
