Six Ports of Entry Closed on Mexican Independence Day due to Invasion of Del Rio


DEL RIO, TX – Gov. Greg Abbott has had enough with the invasion at the Texas-Mexico border and has officially closed six points of entry as well as placed a large DPS presence on the border.

"The sheer negligence of the Biden Administration to do their job and secure the border is appalling. I have directed the Department of Public Safety and the Texas National Guard to surge personnel and vehicles to shut down six points of entry along the southern border to stop these caravans from overrunning our state," stated Abbott.

    "The border crisis is so dire that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection is requesting our help as their agents are overwhelmed by the chaos. Unlike President Biden, the State of Texas remains committed to securing our border and protecting Americans."

    Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Victor Escalon said that all the points of entry to Del Rio, Texas, will be shut down due to the overwhelming number of migrants there.

      "Six, seven days ago, Del Rio saw 400 migrants sitting, underneath the bridge, the (point of entry) in downtown Del Rio ... there's about 6,000 sitting there right now and more are coming," said Escalon. 

      "Before I came here today, my last instructions are, we're going to shut down all the POEs in Del Rio," he said, following an update on Operation Lone Star.

      Earlier today the Mayor of Del Rio made a video pleading for the Biden administration and Homeland Security to answer their calls.

      Currently in Del Rio 8,000 illegals have gathered underneath the International bridge with more being expected to arrive in the morning.

      joe biden and his sheep will sell out this country, destroying it as we know it just to keep the democrats in power by whatever means necessary. How can anybody in their right mind think this is ok??? Most democrats keep making excuses for biden's behavior because, he's their democrat leader. HOW PATHETIC! I hope someday these same people have to explain to their children and grandchildren their reasons for supporting someone like this. 

      If they are coming through ports of entry, trumps wall and border policies wouldn't have done anything. Since this started under trump like you say it did, that is proof enough.

      Biden has been turning away migrants at the border because of covid and sending them back to mexico, but a judge just ruled he has to stop doing that, but you wont hear that on right wing news because it doesn't fit republican narrative that he is letting everyone in, which is not even close to true.

      Also, republicans are the ones that are now calling elections fraudulent before results even come out, passing voter restriction bills that make it harder for people to vote (mostly democrats) and they even attempted to take over the government on January 6th, said it wasn't them, and are now going to hold a rally for that attempt on the 18th, for which the capital is basically going into lockdown for. Republicans are also taking away constitutionally protected rights that have been settled by 50 years of precedent by subverting established law. Not to mention banning safety devices that are getting children sick, and spouting lies and misinformation that is telling people to take medication that is also making them sick and doing nothing to prevent or treat what they say it does. You really need to take a step back and look in the mirror.

      Good for Abbott.  So much for ol sleepy joe doing anything to curb this illegal invasion.   

      Biden has literally painted himself into a corner. One of the first things he did, after openly inviting migrants to “surge the border”, was to do away with Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy, which along with other pro-immigration initiatives like promises of citizenship and free healthcare for illegal immigrants, has resulted in the shitshow we’re seeing now ;)

      I like how Abbott is admitting indirectly that nearly all undocumented immigrants come through legal ports of entry, and that a wall is effectively useless. 

      Abbot is also saying how "bidens border patrol " and "bidens border customs agents" are failing at their job since they've accessed entry into the US illegally.  Reading is fundamental 

      You do realize that they are using legal ports of entry because the wall does work. That's why a few have died scaling and falling from it and why they've (Biden's besties the illegals) chosen legal ports to enter from. You're not very smart are you?

      Undocumented immigrants have been coming through legal ports of entry for decades, the Wall has only existed for a couple of years.

      Crickets from the left so far. But when it does say something it will include finger pointing and deflection as usual, oh and don't forget the "R is bad D is good" thing that is on repeat like a broken record...

      They won't really have an explanation past that.

      Is this Jeff Ls new account? He has definitely made a new one I just can't figure out yet which one it is. You came along at the same time he stopped posting. Jeff L is the person who doubled down when he said that Obama was president during 9/11.

      If not then what "explanation" are you looking for?

      I'm not sure who you speak of, but I have watched you finger point for a very long time. This is my only account. And as far as explanations, yours are all the same as my statement pointed to. R is bad and D is perfect right?

      I'm certain our Texas National Guard has weaponry such as mini-guns in their armory. Load some deuce and a halves up with crates of ammo and a couple of those mounted on pods and let the games begin.... I'm certain those about half a mile back from reaching the border will gladly turn and surge back to the South......

      That is murder. You are advocating to murder people who have done nothing wrong. But that is not surprising coming from republicans. "Pro-life" really did go out the window a looooong time ago.

      It's called war dumba$$....... We protect our soil against all enemies......They are invading our country illegally, bringing diseases of mass destruction with them.

      Republicans are always so violent, and always want to solve problems with violence. Immigrants have been coming to this country since day 1. Undocumented immigrants have been coming over in large numbers for 60+ years.

      Also, why are you scared to say dumbass?

      60 million lives lost to abortion in the US alone since Roe v. Wade Mao and Stalin would be proud.

      Wait, so you are saying that when you want to murder people you don't like it is justified because some other people did the same thing in your mind? This is the stupidest argument for wanting to kill people I have ever heard, and I have heard quite a few from you republicans.

      Also, just like your argument with vaccines and masks and it not being about them specifically, only the mandates; it isn't about abortion, it is about constitutionally protected rights based on 50 years of precedent and settled law.


      It's the 14th amendment due process and right to privacy. It is the major right that RvW upheld. If it were overturned it would cause more issues than just those having to do with abortion.

      And that's why each state can reverse any laws that are unconstitutional, including the murdering of unborn children. 

      When did I ever advocate for killing people? Either you’re confusing me with someone else, or you’re simply a brainwashed leftist ideologue accusing others of the very same thing you’re guilty of ;)

      So if it is "life at conception", then it doesn't have to be born to be a US citizen from an undocumented immigrant?

      If life begins at conception, will you allow mothers to apply for government and childcare benefits before they are born?

      The right to life, according to the Constitution, is a God given right…not the case when it comes to “government and childcare benefits”.

      It’s ok, I wouldn’t expect someone like you to understand ;)

      Nowhere in the constitution is god mentioned or even has the word god in it. Besides there are so many gods, most older than yours, it would be difficult to differentiate between which one they were talking about.

      Maybe not but the pledge of allegiance most certainly did. Maybe you should try reciting it. If you know the words. If not I'll leave them here for you since your party forgot them.

      "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

      While there have been several additions to the pledge it has never been totally removed until people started suing because they were "being forced" to recite it. It's a shame that we cannot teach our children to be proud of the country and  they live in because someone is offended. Guessing from your last comment you will quickly disregard the religious part since it was an addition, but we all know it's because you only put your faith in the government, and you most certainly only worship them. I'll tell you now they work for the people of the United States, not vice versa. And for several administrations there has been a lack of them working, so you can stop  blaming the bad orange man any day now.

      How could The Creator be younger than any man made god or idol as they're called? I'd say it's pretty easy you're just being ignorant.

      Joe Biden and his administration are a disgrace. They are all pathetic and we don’t need their “leadership”.
