Commanders for the Texas National Guard sent out a massive number of troops to the U.S. border near El Paso seemingly overnight as a means to guard the border from a massive influx of illegal immigrants expected to try and illegally cross the border into the city.
On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States recently took strides to stop the Biden administration from going through with its efforts finally drop Title 42, which was set in place by former President Donald Trump back in March 2020 and reportedly put a stop to well over 2.5 million illegal immigrants from going into the country.
Oscar Leeser, the Democratic Mayor of El Paso, issued an order on Monday which declared an official state of emergency, expressing that “beginning in late August 2022, the El Paso sector experienced a surge of over 2,000 migrants presenting themselves daily to CPB,” going further, “the number of migrants released into the community continues to grow.”
Leeser also issued a warning that a massive wave of close to 20,000 migrants was situated in Ciudad Juárez and making preparations to flood across the southern border soon.
As all of that was taking place, Mario D’Agostino, the El Paso City Manager, was able to confirm a number of videos showing illegal immigrants coming out of manholes and sprinting across the border.
While speaking during an appearance this past Sunday on “This Week” from ABC News, Texas GOP Governor Greg Abbott expressly stated that “If the courts don’t intervene and put a halt of removal to the Title 42 it’s going to be total chaos.”
“There are people across the globe who have a valid, a solid reason to come to the United States, but they can do so legally right now.” declared Abbott. “The people who have the ability to come to the United States illegally get pushed further and further and further back the line every single day with the thousands of illegal immigrants coming across the border.”
“Under state law, the governor has called forth the militia to protect the Texas citizens and in that he has given us arrest authority,” tacked on Major General Tom Selzer of the National Guard.
“Communities like Del Rio and Eagle Pass and others, they are having thousands of people dumped off into their communities, thousands of migrants, dumped off in their communities. They don’t have the capability of dealing with that vast number of migrants,” highlighted Governor Abbott, prior to going after President Biden directly: “It was known from the time that Joe Biden got elected that Joe Biden supported open borders. It is known by the cartels who have sophisticated information whether or not the Biden administration is going to enforce the immigration laws or not is known across the world but most importantly, known among the cartels.”
