Greg Abbott National Guard

Deploys National Guard against immigrants

15 Dec, 2015

Abbott deploys the National Guard to protect the border from a growing number of illegal immigrants.

[M]y request for more border patrol agents and strategic resources to secure the border were ignored. Now, the concern I warned about has turned into reality: A substantial spike in illegal crossings has occurred at a particularly unsuspecting time, once again challenging Texas’ security and resources…Texas will not sit idle in the face of this challenge. We will not be victimized as a state by a federal government’s apathetic response to border security.
