The situation in the USA is escalating! Texas is not backing down in its border standoff with Biden

Texas' border standoff with the Biden administration shows no sign of abating, despite a Supreme Court ruling last week that allowed federal officials to remove barbed wire the state government had installed along the Rio Grande. Indeed, on Monday, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick vowed to bolster fortifications. "We're putting wire...wherever we can. We will continue. We will not stop,” he told Fox News. "If they cut it, we'll replace it."

"Americans want and deserve a secure border. T.Biden refuses to do his job which is to uphold the law.

Texas is not going to back down.

We will continue to act to secure our border and keep Texans and Americans safe."


Next to the barbed wire, Texas has deployed members of its National Guard to guard the park at Eagle Pass. The site, which is across the Rio Grande from Piedras Negras, Mexico, is a popular migrant crossing point. Three migrants drowned there earlier this month, shortly after Texas first blocked the area.

While immigration deterrence is the stated purpose of the Texas National Guardsmen deployed to Eagle Pass, they are also intended to serve as a war warning to the Biden administration, Patrick noted. "I was down at Eagle Pass] on Friday with our troops to thank them, to support them and also to stand with them in case the Biden administration sent border patrol there," he said in the Fox News interview.


Last week, 25 governors issued a statement on behalf of the Republican Governors Association expressing their support for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's decision to invoke a state's constitutional right to self-defense.

"The framers of the US Constitution made it clear that in times like this, states have a right to self-defense, under Article 4, Section 4 and Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the US Constitution," the signatories wrote.

"Because the Biden administration has abdicated its constitutional duties to the states, Texas has every legal justification to protect the sovereignty of our states and our nation," they added.

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott is the only Republican governor who did not sign the statement.

So far, Texas has received support from 25 Republican governors and 26 Republican attorneys general.

. They accused Biden and Mallorca of neglecting their constitutional duty to protect the states from foreign invaders, opening the door for Texas to legally infringe on federal authority. "States have an independent duty to defend against intrusion," the attorneys general wrote, adding, "your government is assisting individuals to complete their illegal entry into the United States."

Should Biden take matters into his own hands and use state troopers, Texas Governor Greg Abbott will not leave it unanswered. "I'm ready — in case they make a blunder like that — I assure you that Texas will be able to continue to protect our borders," he told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday.

The military forces that have been sent by the 25 States have been spread along the entire border line of Texas with Mexico.
