Texas has a fantastic Governor in Greg Abbott!
A true patriot and great ally to President Trump.
A great defender of our national security and safety of all Americans.
And he just proved it again by taking action and deploying the National Guard to the Texas border.
Well done sir, thank you!
Abbott had this to say:
The National Guard is activated and deployed to the border now. Department of Public Safety Troopers are deployed to the border too. We are adding boats, planes & detection equipment too. Texas has the strongest border security of any state. Now we need Congress to act.
Take a look:
Thank you Gov. Abbott!
Meanwhile, President Trump is also amping up efforts, and said he will likely close the border this week and leave it closed for a long time!
Here's more from Time:
President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to close America’s southern border or large sections of it next week, a potentially drastic step affecting the economies of both the U.S. and Mexico, if Mexico does not halt illegal immigration “immediately.”
“It could mean all trade” with Mexico, Trump said when questioned by reporters in Florida. “We will close it for a long time. I am not kidding around.”
Trump has previously threatened to close the border — including at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Thursday night — but this time was different as he gave a timetable. The White House did not immediately respond to questions about whether his possible action would apply to commercial and air travel, but a substantial closure could have an especially heavy impact on cross-border communities from San Diego to South Texas, as well as supermarkets, factories, and other businesses across the country that rely on trade from Mexico.
“If Mexico doesn’t immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States through our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week,” Trump said in a tweet. “This would be so easy for Mexico to do, but they just take our money and ‘talk.'”
A big thank you to President Trump and Gov. Abbott for your patriotic service to keep us safe!
