Eagle Go is a part of Maverick County, Texas which declared an invasion on the southern border earlier this summer time.
Abbott issued an govt order in July authorizing the Texas Nationwide Guard and the Texas Division of Public Security to apprehend unlawful immigrants who illegally cross the border between ports of entry and return them to the border.
That is essentially the most preposterous factor I’ve ever seen. Illegals get admitted to the U.S. quicker than a U.S. citizen arriving at JFK. https://t.co/SZnE8qv6rD

Abbott in the meantime has been doing his finest to fight the border surge and disaster by having the Nationwide Guard lock gates … solely to have Border Patrol open them once more.
He’s been on the receiving finish of criticism from blue state and metropolis lawmakers for benefiting from their ‘sanctuary metropolis’ insurance policies and delivery unlawful immigrants by bus to their areas somewhat than holding them the place regulation and order nonetheless imply one thing.
In reality, Mayor Muriel Bowser, who runs one such metropolis, was so distraught by the variety of unlawful immigrants exhibiting up on Washington, D.C.’s doorstep, that she requested National Guard help.
I’m wondering how Bowser would really feel if she really obtained permitted for Nationwide Guard help and so they began closing gates solely to have the federal authorities are available in and open them up once more.
Hello MSNBC. I’ve a critical query. Why are there so many “undocumented migrants” in Texas that Governor Abbott can ship sufficient to overwhelm Democrat cities? pic.twitter.com/W05EJkRnoH

It’s merciless to ship them from a state whose assets are being overwhelmed by the border invasion to a metropolis the place ‘if you may make it there, you’ll make it anyplace’?
Appears like Abbott is providing them an opportunity on the American dream, to be trustworthy.
