Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) on Thursday authorized the Texas National Guard and state troopers to apprehend illegal aliens and return them to ports of entry.
This is the action our country needed long ago.
Republican states should have banded together to send illegal aliens back over the border.
Thankfully, Texas is finally taking this action to fight the invasion at our southern border.
Biden’s open-border policies have wrecked the country and made life more dangerous for American citizens.
Just last week, 51 migrants were found dead in a truck in a human smuggling operation in San Antonio, Texas.
Abbott finally pulled the trigger and took the unprecedented action to stop the invasion.
“While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border,” Abbott said in a statement.
I issued an Executive Order authorizing the Texas National Guard & Texas Dept. of Public Safety to return illegal immigrants to the border.
Cartels have become emboldened by Biden's open border policies.

From The Texas Tribune:
Abbott’s actions come on the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court, with help from justices Roberts and Kavanaugh, overturning President Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy.
Here is the opinion from John Roberts in Biden v. Texas: https://t.co/zuSZpiDQP0. Roberts is joined by the three liberals + Kavanaugh. Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and Barrett dissent.

President Trump initiated a law that forced migrants crossing the U.S. Southern border who claim they are seeking asylum remain in Mexico until their cases were reviewed by U.S. Courts.
With the asylum policy overturned, thousands of migrants are marching to the U.S. border.
