Las políticas de fronteras abiertas han llevado a una crisis humanitaria en nuestra frontera sur a medida que niveles récord de inmigrantes ilegales, drogas y contrabando llegan a Texas. El Estado de Texas está trabajando en colaboración con las comunidades afectadas por la crisis para arrestar y detener a las personas que entran ilegalmente a Texas. Nuestros esfuerzos solo serán efectivos si trabajamos juntos para asegurar la frontera, arrestar a criminales, proteger a dueños de propiedad, librar a nuestras comunidades de drogas peligrosas y proporcionar a los tejanos el apoyo que necesitan y merecen.

Governor Abbott Orders DPS, TMD To Use Every Available Strategy To Combat Border Crisis
Governor Greg Abbott ordered the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and Texas Military Department (TMD) to expand their unprecedented efforts to combat the growing illegal immigration along the Texas-Mexico border. In a letter to DPS Director Steve McCraw and TMD Adjutant General Thomas Suelzer, the Governor outlined the need for the Operation Lone Star partners to defend Texas against what amounts to an invasion of America's southern border. Amid the Biden Administration’s ongoing failure to secure the border, DPS troopers and Texas National Guard soldiers, through Operation Lone Star, have repelled and turned back historic numbers of immigrants trying to cross the border illegally, arrested dangerous transnational criminals and criminal trespassers, and seized enough deadly fentanyl to kill every man, woman, and child in the nation. “Until Congress acts or the Biden Administration does its constitutionally required job, Texas Guardsmen and Troopers must bear the burden of securing the border. You must continue to keep Texans and Americans safe and protect against an invasion of the southern border. I order you to use all resources and tools available to repel immigrants from attempting to cross illegally, arrest those who cross illegally and return them to the border, and arrest criminals who violate Texas law.”

Governor Abbott Designates Mexican Cartels As Terrorist Organizations
Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order designating Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations and instructing the Texas Department of Public Safety to take immediate action to keep Texans safe amid the growing national fentanyl crisis. The Governor also sent a letter to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris requesting federal terrorist classifications for the Sinaloa Cartel and Jalisco New Generation Cartel, as well as other cartels producing and distributing deadly fentanyl. “Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it. Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

Governor Abbott Authorizes Texas National Guard, Texas Department Of Public Safety To Return Illegal Immigrants To Border
Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order authorizing and empowering the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety to apprehend illegal immigrants who illegally cross the border between ports of entry and return them to the border. The Biden Administration's decision to end Title 42 expulsions and the Remain-in-Mexico policy has led to historic levels of illegal crossings, with 5,000 migrants being apprehended over the July 4th weekend, creating a border crisis that has overrun communities along the border and across Texas. "While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border. The cartels have become emboldened and enriched by President Biden's open border policies, smuggling in record numbers of people, weapons, and deadly drugs like fentanyl."

Governor Abbott Expands Border Security Operations
Governor Greg Abbott announced the expansion of the state’s border security operations by creating Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) strike teams, establishing new vehicle inspection checkpoints targeting semi-trucks, and the deployment of additional resources from the Texas Military Department to mitigate President Biden's growing border crisis. "The Lone Star State will not sit idly by as the federal government chooses to ignore the historic number of illegal crossings, human smuggling, and drug trafficking of deadly fentanyl from Mexico into the United States. Our government has no greater responsibility than to provide public safety to its citizens. Until President Biden decides to uphold immigration laws passed by Congress, the State of Texas will continue utilizing every tool available to secure the border and keep Texans — and Americans — safe."

Governor Abbott Provides Update In Mission On Texas’ Ongoing Border Security Preparations For Incoming Migrant Caravans
Governor Greg Abbott held a press conference at the Anzalduas International Bridge in Mission on the State of Texas’ ongoing border security preparations ahead of the latest migrant caravans headed to the Texas-Mexico border. "The State of Texas has been working for the past month on preparations for the latest approaching caravans because the Biden Administration is failing to do its job of securing the nation's borders… The National Guard and DPS are conducting mass-migration rehearsals to implement flexible strategies to deter illegal crossings at any point along the border where they occur."

Governor Abbott Activates Joint Border Security Operations Center In Preparation For Mass Migrant Influx As Biden Ends Title 42 Expulsions
"Texas will not stand by as President Biden puts our state and our nation in danger by ending Title 42 expulsions and allowing dangerous criminals, illegal weapons, and deadly drugs like fentanyl to flow unabated into the United States, and exacerbating the humanitarian crisis at our southern border," said Governor Abbott. "We continue taking unprecedented action to secure the border, ramping up every available strategy and resource in response to President Biden's ongoing border crisis. The Joint Border Security Operations Center will play an integral role in our state's robust response to provide the border security strategy Texans — and Americans — deserve."

El gobernador Abbott toma medidas agresivas para asegurar la frontera mientras el presidente Biden pone fin a las expulsiones del Título 42
"Las políticas de fronteras abiertas de la Administración Biden han abierto el camino para que peligrosos cárteles y las drogas mortales lleguen a los Estados Unidos, y esta crisis solo empeorará si se pone fin a las expulsiones del Título 42", dijo el gobernador Abbott. "Con el fin de las expulsiones del Título 42 que se avecinan el próximo mes, Texas comenzará inmediatamente a tomar medidas sin precedentes para hacer lo que ningún estado ha hecho en la historia de Estados Unidos para asegurar nuestra frontera. Las nuevas estrategias anunciadas hoy y la próxima semana fortalecerán aún más nuestra ya robusta respuesta al desastre fronterizo de Biden, y usaremos todos y cada uno de los poderes legales para reducir el flujo de drogas, traficantes de personas, inmigrantes ilegales, armas y otro contrabando a Texas."
