Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has deployed State Troopers and the Texas National Guard to tackle the growing crisis on the Southern Border amid Joe Biden's immigration policies.

On Saturday, Governor Abbott announced his effort, dubbed "Operation Lone Star," to tackle the federal government's open border policies.

The operation seeks “to combat the smuggling of people and drugs into Texas,” Abbott said in a statement Saturday evening.

Abbott's operation will integrate the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) with the National Guard, the governor said.

He is ordering the deployment of air, ground, marine, and tactical border security assets to high threat areas.

“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” Abbott 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," Gov. Abbott continued.

"We will surge the resources and law enforcement personnel needed to confront this crisis.”

Abbott issued the deployment order following a meeting with Texas DPS Director Colonel Steve McCraw, according to Breitbart.

The two discussed strategies to increase safety and security along the border.

The announcement follows a massive increase in illegal border crossings since President Joe Biden took office in January.

Earlier this week, Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) announced that Border Patrol agents apprehended approximately 10,000 migrants in the Rio Grande Valley Sector during a seven-day period ending on Wednesday, Breitbart Texas reported.

“We are weeks, maybe even days, away from a crisis on the southern border. Inaction is simply not an option,” Congressman Cuellar said in a written statement.

“Our country is currently unprepared to handle a surge in migrants in the middle of the pandemic.”

In Brownsville, Texas, city officials said that six percent of the migrants being released at the bus station to obtain transportation into the U.S. interior are testing positive for COVID-19, Breitbart Texas reported.

The Brownsville official said they do not have the authority to prevent those who test positive from boarding buses to travel into the U.S. interior.

A worker at the bus station told Fox News they cannot ask passengers for proof of coronavirus test results before transit.

Cuellar added, “I urge the Biden Administration to listen and work with the communities on the southern border who are dealing with the surge of migrants.”
