Joe Biden has been messing with Texas. And you know what they say about messing with Texas, right?
Since Biden’s entered office, the governor of the state has been proving to be a thorn in his side.
As the Biden administration doubles down on strict COVID mandates, Texas is opening up once and for all.
And as Biden throws open the migrant door, Gov. Abbott is throwing it back shut.
His office is launching its own counter-operation, codenamed “Lone Star.”
From KFox 14:
Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of Public Safety launched on Saturday Operation Lone Star to combat the smuggling of people and drugs into Texas.
The Operation integrates DPS with the Texas National Guard and deploys air, ground, marine, and tactical border security assets to high threat areas to deny Mexican Cartels and other smugglers the ability to move drugs and people into Texas.
Why It’s Important:
Reports have been flooding in that since Trump left office, attempts at the border have skyrocketed. Biden has rolled back most of Trump’s reforms.
What we have now is a situation that is out of control. Thousands are trying to jump the border every day.
Detention centers are overrun. Even ones Biden promised to close (children centers that separate them from their parents) are operating at full capacity—ignoring CDC COVID guidelines.
It seems with zero support from the federal government, the state of Texas is forced to do the job for them.
Gov. Abbott is deploying a new mission to protect the border. It will involve the DPS and Texas National Guard.
It appears they are pulling out all the stops to prevent criminals from sneaking over the border. They will be targeting “high threat” areas that are frequently used by cartels to enter the country.
Just a few months ago, the Department of Homeland Security had this covered. But it’s clear that if states want to protect their people, they are on their own.
This operation will go a long way in securing the Texas-Mexico border, but what about other states? Will Arizona and New Mexico step up to do the same? And how about Calif—eh, I think we know the answer to that one.
- Texas Gov. Abbott is launching “Operation Lone Star” to defend the Southern border.
- The mission will deploy numerous resources to prevent drug cartels from entering the state.
- This comes as the border explodes thanks to Joe Biden’s disastrously lax immigration policy.
