It looks like it’s finally starting to reach the breaking point.
For decades now, the ruling class elites in Washington, D.C. have forced the American people – especially those in border states – to endure an increasingly dangerous invasion at the southern border that is a direct result of federal government inaction, and their intentional efforts to “fundamentally transform the United States.”
And for the overwhelming majority of that time, the American people have largely taken it on the chin, but as the late Bob Dylan would say, “the times they are a-changin’.”
After the state of Texas passed a new law making it a criminal offense for illegal aliens to enter the state, thus allowing the state to deport said illegal aliens back to their home countries rather than allowing the federal government to keep releasing them into the U.S., the Biden regime hit Texas with a lawsuit.
But the fact that the federal government would sue a state for attempting to actually enforce immigration laws the federal government refuses to enforce was a breaking point for many working class Americans, particularly Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott.
Governor Abbott responded to the lawsuit by finally deploying the Texas National Guard to the border to deal with the humanitarian catastrophe and national security threat caused by the Biden border crisis.
On top of that, though, Abbott also took the unprecedented step of deploying the Texas National Guard to the Eagle Pass border sector – one of the primary areas in which thousands of illegal aliens are being allowed to pour into the country by federal authorities each day – kicking out Biden-controlled federal border agents to seize control of the area so immigration laws will actually be enforced.
NEW: In overnight DOJ filing, Feds confirm that the TX National Guard “has deployed armed soldiers and vehicles to block federal gov from accessing the river” in Eagle Pass, & TX informed them no BP agents will be allowed to enter Shelby Park “in any operational capacity”.

To make matters worse for the Biden regime, it seems as though federal border patrol agents are largely in favor of Governor Abbott’s efforts to kick federal authorities out of Eagle Pass and take operational control of the area.
“Governor Abbott is not harming Border Patrol operations, he is enhancing them,” National Border Patrol Council head Brandon Judd told Fox News. “His seizing control of Shelby Park allows our agents to deploy to troubled spots that experience high numbers of gotaways. Governor Abbott’s actions should be seen as a force multiplier.”
The Texas Military Department, the executive agency over the Texas National Guard, Air National Guard, and State Guard, released a statement following the move to boot the Biden regime’s border agents in which they explained that the decision was made in order to deal with future surges in illegal immigration surges and restrict access to those who enable illegal immigration.
“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,” a statement read.
The Biden border crisis is an unmitigated disaster for the United States, especially border states, and it is irreparably harming working class Americans in the process.
But at the same time, by perpetuating their open borders agenda, the Biden regime is also putting the lives of immigrants who actually want to come to America to be contributing members of society in danger as well, putting their well-being in the hands of dangerous drug cartels and human traffickers.
And Greg Abbott and the state of Texas are doing far more to solve this problem than Joe Biden and his regime.
