Mexico is freaking out as President Donald Trump ruins their “fiesta” with one thing that the National Guard troops are taking with them to the border. You won’t want to miss this.
After Mexico’s Senate warned President Donald Trump not to use military troops to secure our southern border last week, our President hit back with an announcement that he wants 2,000 to 4,000 U.S. troops deployed to help our border patrol agents. Now, Trump’s ally in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott, has just made another announcement about the troops that will end Mexico’s “fiesta” for good.
The Republican Governor of Texas just sent Mexico’s leadership into full panic mode after he announced on Tuesday, April 9, 2018, that some of the National Guard troops being sent to the U.S.-Mexico border will be taking one important thing with them — their guns.
For millions of American patriots, this just sounds like common sense, but try to imagine the glimmer of hope that liberals in our country had when it was announced that the National Guard would only be providing support to the border patrol agents without taking part in the capture of illegal aliens. The open-borders crowd just got kicked in the stomach with this announcement from Governor Abbott.
According to Breitbart, Governor Greg Abbott made the announcement during an interview on a morning radio show with KTSA. He emphasized the importance of troop safety while helping out the border patrol, and he talked about why some of the troops will be armed.
“Whenever they’re in a position where they could be confronted by someone who is very dangerous, they will be armed,” Governor Abbott told KTSA’s Trey Ware. “Our National Guard will be able to fully defend themselves.” Abbott said that the troops will not be armed in an aggressive manner but in a way more appropriate for self-defense.
“We want to downplay any notion that would be misinformed that our National Guard are showing up with military bayonets, trying to take on anybody who’s coming across the border because that is not their role,” Abbott explained.
Texas is stepping up to the plate in response to Trump’s recent request for troops to be sent to the border to deal with the surge of illegal immigrants which began in March. Nearly 38,000 illegal aliens were captured by border patrol agents in March alone. That was a spike “of more than 10,000 in a single month and an increase of more than 200 percent from March 2017,” according to Breitbart.
The Texas Governor said there is a need to deploy National Guard troops to the Mexican border. “You need to understand that there is a mathematical need for this because the people coming across the border have increased dramatically,” Abbott said on Fox News‘ Fox and Friends during an interview on Monday, April 9, 2018.
“What is going on is people don’t just happen to come into the United States,” Governor Abbott explained. “They get here by the drug cartels and by the coyotes who bring them across. Every time we have increased the forces on the ground, there has been a decrease of the cartel activity and coyote activity because they realize they will be losing money. Part of our job is to put these cartels and coyotes out of business. Whenever we are able to ramp up the support on the ground, it puts them out of business, and it’s going to make the border a far more secure place.”
Governor Gregg Abbott also announced on Monday that Texas would be increasing its deployed number of National Guardsmen to 1,000. Governor Abbott said that he plans to send about 300 troops per week until the commitment is reached. Without a doubt, this is not the news that Mexico or the open-borders crowd wanted to hear. It’s time for our country to take back its borders, and in addition to a wall, I can’t think of a better way to do it than with our military.
