SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — It looks like Texas and the federal government are on a collision course over different views on how to handle the historic influx of illegal border crossings.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott posted to the X platform video (below) of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol cutting razor wire recently put in place to stop illegal immigrants from crossing into the country from Mexico.
Video footage shows federal agents then pulling back the razor wire as illegal border crossers emerge from the banks of the Rio Grande River near Eagle Pass.
Governor Abbott is responding by sending more Texas National Guard personnel to the region.
Texas installed razor wire in Eagle Pass to stop illegal crossings.
Today the Biden Admin CUT that wire, opening the floodgates to illegal immigrants.
I immediately deployed more Texas National Guard to repel illegal crossings & install more razor wire. pic.twitter.com/eMtLS8Z6WI
