Trump Calls on State Guard Units From Across America to Deploy to Texas

In the midst of the crisis involving the removal of razor wire from the U.S.-Mexico frontier and the dispute between Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott and the federal government, former President Trump urged “all willing states” to deploy National Guard personnel to Texas.

Continued construction along the border on Tuesday, the Texas National Guard appeared to disregard a Supreme Court decision authorizing the removal of razor wire barriers.

In support of his stance, Abbot criticized President Biden for failing to enforce immigration laws and for violating them.

The governor of Texas has invoked the state’s constitutional prerogative to defend itself against invasion in light of the ongoing influx of migrants at the southern frontier of the country.

Republican governors in a number of states have supported Abbott’s impasse over the government’s decision to permit Border Patrol to remove the wire, coinciding with Trump’s proclamation.

Abbott is supported by the following Republican governors: Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma, Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Ron DeSantis of Florida, Glenn Youngkin of Virginia, and Brian Kemp of Georgia.

In response to alleged assertions that Texas authorities possess supreme power over the federal government, Democrats demanded that Biden nationalize the Texas National Guard and compel its members to comply with the court’s ruling.
