New Plan to Stop Illegals

(StraightShooterNews.com) – Seeing the Biden administration’s inability to secure the country against illegal aliens, Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently shared his plan to set up a military base in a border town to deter migrants.

Although the Justice Department took legal action against Texas and the Border Patrol received orders to remove the barbed wire fences that were installed along the border, the Texas National Guard took over and has been putting up more barriers.

Governor Abbott explained that the planned new base “will increase the ability for a larger number of Texas Military Department soldiers in Eagle Pass to operate more effectively and efficiently.”

Likewise, the base will initially offer 300 beds and will eventually provide accommodation for around 1,800 National Guard members.

He also pointed out that “before this effort here, they had been living in conditions that were atypical for military operations,” and noted that troops were spread out in tents, hotels and private homes, with some needing to travel an hour to reach Eagle Pass.

Abbott also stated that “the magnitude of what we’re doing, because of the need to sustain and actually expand our efforts of what we’re doing, it’s essential that we build this base camp for the soldiers.”

This advance is part of Texas’s broader strategy that has seen the state spend over $124 million in less than two years to transport illegal migrants from the state to various Democratic-led sanctuary cities.

More than 10 million migrants have crossed the border illegally since Biden took office, which is the highest record for any administration in the same period.

Currently, around 3,000 Texas soldiers are stationed at the border to capture migrants, construct barriers on land and water and prevent U.S. Border Patrol agents from accessing a city park in Eagle Pass that the state enclosed with barbed wire.
