(trendingpoliticsnews) – On Monday morning, Texas Governor Greg Abbott gave a speech regarding the migrant crisis that continues to unfold. Specifically, Abbott focused on the issue of border security, as the COVID-era migration policy known as Title 42 is set to expire soon. According to a press release from his office, the governor held a press conference at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to share details about Texas’ extraordinary measures to address what he calls President Joe Biden’s ongoing border crisis.
According to Abbott, the Biden administration anticipates that approximately 13,000 individuals will unlawfully cross the border every day once Title 42 is no longer in effect. In response to this, the governor declared that Texas will mobilize as many as 10,000 National Guard members and 1,200 troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Furthermore, he revealed plans to establish the “Texas Tactical Border Force,” which will comprise specifically trained National Guard members stationed in critical areas to intercept, repel, and redirect migrants attempting to enter the United States illegally.
