Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, has ordered the Texas National Guard to reinforce “the barrier with concertina wire, a type of barbed wire, near the New Mexico state line, close to Sunland Park,” KFOX14 reported.
The reinforcements will be near the Rio Grande bank at the U.S.-Mexico Border.
“The move is meant to restrict what the Governor’s allies consider to be overwhelming migration through unofficial pathways,” the outlet continued.
Abbott shared via X, formerly Twitter, “‘Texas National Guard reinforces border with razor wire following Governor Abbott’s orders.’ This is on the border between Texas and NEW Mexico.”
He added, “Migrants are entering New Mexico illegally then crossing into Texas. We are stopping it.”
State Rep. Stefani Lord commented on Abbott’s post, tagging New Mexico Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, “[H]ow many crossing into America via New Mexico are Hamas ‘rape terrorists*’ or other terrorist groups chanting ‘Death to America?’ *Survivors of Hamas attack on music festival: Women were raped next to the corpses of their friends.”
Abbott launched the state’s Operation Lone Star to stop the scourge of illegal immigration into the country. He has transported illegal immigrants to leftist “sanctuary cities” that have since been angered by the move to the supposed inclusive cities of illegal immigrants.
