EAGLE PASS, TX – Federal Agents Wednesday cut Texas border wire fence at Eagle Pass encouraging an invasion by Mexican Drug Cartel agents and 4,000 illegal immigrants from Venezuela.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a tweet that he was declaring an invasion under the Constitution as the Biden administration has failed to secure the border. "I officially declared an invasion at our border because of Biden's Policies," He continued: “We are building a border wall, razor wire and marine barriers. We are also repelling migrants.”
'Texas installed razor wire in Eagle Pass to stop illegal crossings,' said Abbott. '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.'
Eagle Pass Mayor Rolando Salinas declared a state of emergency yesterday, warning that the town's hospitals are also becoming overwhelmed.
Yesterday, a three-year-old boy drowned while trying to cross the Rio Grande into Eagle Pass with his family.
The Border Patrol issued the following statement Wednesday evening: “Beginning this afternoon, CBP’s Office of Field Operations will temporarily suspend vehicle processing operations at Bridge 1 and the international railway crossing bridge in Eagle Pass, Texas in order to redirect personnel to assist the U.S. Border Patrol with taking migrants into custody. In response to this influx in encounters, we will continue to surge all available resources to expeditiously and safely process migrants. We will maximize consequences against those without a legal basis to remain in the United States. CBP will continue to prioritize our border security mission as necessary in response to this evolving situation.”
