Somebody has to do something about the border crisis.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that he is deploying National Guard troops to the southern border to address what he calls a “crisis.”
Abbott (R) announced Operation Lone Star over the weekend to address the smuggling of people and drugs into the state, something he blames on the current administration.
“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” he said.
“Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans,” added Abbott.
The governor warned that he would “surge” resources and law enforcement in an effort to combat the crisis at the border.
