He’s doing this to keep his citizens safe…
Governor Greg Abbott is making sure his citizens feel and are safe by announcing that he will be deploying the National Guard and State Troopers to defend the “growing border crisis.”
Abbott wrote in a statement:
“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration. Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans. We will surge the resources and law enforcement personnel needed to confront this crisis.”
Today Texas launched Operation Lone Star to respond to the border crisis.
It deploys Nat’l Guard + DPS Officers + air, ground, marine, & tactical border security assets to deny Mexican Cartels & smugglers the ability to move drugs & people into Texas.https://t.co/r68J2laDpH

Illegal border crossing has increased massively since Biden took office and Abbott is not having Biden’s open policy negatively affect his state.
This is what a competent governor looks like. Read the whole article here.
