Texas has become ground zero in the Joe Biden created border crisis.
The Lonestar State is being forced to step up and defend its border since Biden has abdicated his duties.
The state of Texas has now taken charge of attempting to secure the state’s southern border with Mexico since President Joe Biden has refused to do his job.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has been in a long-running feud with Biden over the state’s border security efforts.
The Border Patrol has been handcuffed by Biden and it has prevented them from enforcing the country’s immigration laws.
And they have been turned into agents of chaos under the appalling direction of Biden’s Department of Homeland Security.
Border Patrol agents have even been ordered to cut razor wire that Texas installed near the border to prevent illegal aliens from crossing into the state unhindered.
Now the feud between Texas and the Biden regime has escalated after the state made a shocking move in an effort to stop the Border Patrol from aiding and abetting illegal aliens who are in the country.
In the move, the Texas National Guard took control of Shelby Park on the Mexican border in the hard-hit town of Eagle Pass and blocked the Border Patrol from entering the area.
Texas authorities also set up razor wire and fences in the park which has been flooded with illegal aliens.
“The Texas National Guard has maintained a presence with security points and temporary barrier in Shelby Park since 2021,” the Texas Military Department stated. “The current posture is to prepare for future illegal immigrant surges and to restrict access to organizations that perpetuate illegal immigrant crossings in the park and greater Eagle Pass area.”

Shelby Park was one of the areas where the Border Patrol was cutting razor wire, so the Texas National Guard was called into action.
Biden’s Homeland Security Department immediately fired back against Texas by filing a supplemental memorandum with the Supreme Court asking them to give federal authorities full control over the park.
Texas has been locked in a protracted legal battle with the Justice Department over the state’s ability to place razor wire and use water barriers at the border.
And the Lone Star state isn’t backing down from its fight with the Biden regime over securing its border.
“Texas is holding the line at our southern border with miles of additional razor wire and anti-climb barriers to deter and repel the record-high levels of illegal immigration invited by President Biden’s reckless open border policies,” Abbott spokeswoman Renae Eze said.” “Instead of enforcing federal immigration laws, the Biden Administration allows unfettered access for Mexican cartels to smuggle people into our country. Texas will continue to deploy Texas National Guard soldiers, DPS troopers, and more barriers, utilizing every tool and strategy to respond to President Biden’s ongoing border crisis.”
Texas is already facing a Justice Department lawsuit over a recent law that allows law enforcement to arrest illegal aliens for illegally crossing into the country.
Now the Lonestar State is headed towards another major legal showdown with the Biden regime simply for taking the common-sense position of enforcing the country’s immigration laws.
