(AMERIAN MILITARY NEWS) – Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced on Thursday that he is shutting down six points of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border in an effort to stop the flow of illegal immigrants “from overrunning our state.”
“The sheer negligence of the Biden administration to do their job and secure the border is appalling. I have directed the Department of Public Safety and the Texas National Guard to surge personnel and vehicles to shut down six points of entry along the southern border to stop these caravans from overrunning our state,” Gov. Abbott’s office said in a statement to Fox News, according to Fox LA’s Bill Melugin.
“The border crisis is so dire that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection is requesting our help as their border agents are overwhelmed by the chaos,” the statement continued. “Unlike President Biden, the State of Texas remains committed to securing our border and protecting Americans.”
