Border Security

Some 60 Law Enforcement Vehicles Line the Border in a ‘Show of Force’

Eagle Pass is a particular area between the U.S. and Mexico that does not have a physical barrier — police have joined with patrol agents to secure it

The New Mexico governor removed her National Guard troops in a defiant move against President Donald Trump’s attempt to protect the U.S.-Mexico border from migrant caravaners who said they will cross into the United States by any means necessary.

Well, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott isn’t having it.

He deployed additional Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers to the border to show that he means business — and that Texas will not succumb to this illegal flow of illegals.

Law enforcement officers lined their police cars up near Eagle Pass, Texas, in conjunction with the Border Patrol agents to show a large force that will, if necessary, push back against illegal entry into our country.

Eagle Pass is a particular section of the border between the U.S. and Mexico that doesn’t have a physical barrier — so this is needed.

Gov. Greg Abbott’s personal Twitter feed posted this: “Texans ask: what’s going on at Eagle Pass? Below is a picture & statement showing that TX Dept. of Public Safety is on top of it. As part of our border security plan we keep DPS on the border with boats & planes. They work with local & federal authorities to enforce the law.”

This graphic is located on a website ticker that updates every few seconds.

It alerts the viewer to the number of illegal crossings and hones in on the problem of having an unsecured border.

America First Policies is responsible for this $1.1 million advocacy campaign.

The nonprofit has also launched national television and digital ads to alert the American public.
