In preparation of surge in illegal immigration along the US border, a 400 Texas National Guard troops were sent to El Paso.
Title 42, a measure enacted by Donald Trump in 2020, has effectively curtailed approximately 2.5 million migrants from illegally entering the country. That measure, which was temporarily stayed by the Supreme Court, is set to expire 12:00am Wednesday morning.
El Paso’s Mayor Oscar Leeser (D), had declared a state of emergency on Monday. He warned Texans of an approximate number of 20,000 migrants are preparing in Ciudad Juarez to illegally move upon the area.
On Sunday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said on ABC’s “This Week,” “If the courts don’t intervene and put a halt of removal to the Title 42, it’s going to be total chaos.”
He went on to say, “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. 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.”
Abbott continued his statements by bluntly describing the situation at the border and how Biden has caused the problem to become uncontrollable. He said, “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.”
He then focused is remarks on Biden, “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.”
