National Guard is ‘Gearing Up’ to Border as Migrant Caravan Approaches

The National Guard in a Southern state is getting ready at the U.S. Southern border in response to a large migrant caravan that is approaching the U.S. southern border. Governor Greg Abbott has released a video Saturday of this.

Increased Migrant Cavaran

“In fact, the Texas National Guard is going to gear up at the border for ramped up caravans attempting to cross the border brought on by Biden’s open-border policy,” Abbott tweeted. “They are working with the Texas Department of Public Safety to close surge locations at the border and then arrest trespassers.”

On September 28th, Abbott made a similar tweet writing, “Texas National Guard is surging transports tactical vehicles to the border. Then @TexasGuard is continuing to surge equipment and personnel to the Texas border. This would be to provide more support to address Biden’s ongoing crisis. In fact, Texas is securing the border.”

National Guard and its Troops

Abbott’s move is coming in as a massive migrant caravan making its way toward the U.S. southern border. The Texas National Guard in October is doubling the number at the border which is stationing roughly 2,500 troops.

Illegal Drugs, Immigration and Human Trafficking

The adjutant general of the Texas Military Department is Tracy Norris. She is also the commander of the Texas National Guard said that Abbott’s plan is to stymie illegal drugs, illegal immigration, and human trafficking.

“In fact, it will assist their situation,” Norris said regarding the surge. “Moreover, the resources to the border, especially given what is based on what’s happened in the last couple of weeks.”

National Guard: Fence Along the Border

Building a fence along the border is what Governor Greg Abbott wants to do. Thus Norris said “it will give you the time to react because that is what it’s about: it is about figuring out where people are trying to get across. Moreover, if you slow them down, then you can detect them with the technology. Then, you have fewer people. However, you can react a lot quicker to wherever they are trying to get across.”
