Abbott to Build Military Base at Eagle Pass to Counter Biden’s Illegal-alien Invasion


by R. Cort Kirkwood, The New American:

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has taken yet another step to protect Lone Star Staters from the invasion of illegal aliens that President Joe Biden is aiding and abetting.

The state is building a military base on the border with Mexico that will house thousands of Texas National Guardsmen.

Message from Abbott to Sleepy Joe: You won’t stop the invasion, so I will.


Expanded Operations

The base “will increase the ability for a larger number of Texas Military Department soldiers in Eagle Pass to operate more effectively and efficiently,” Abbott said during a news conference last week:

Before now, the Texas National Guard had been scattered across this entire region in cramped quarters, away from fellow soldiers, and sometimes traveling long distances to do their job. This base camp is going to dramatically improve conditions for our soldiers.

The Texas Military Department is building Forward Operating Base Eagle on 80 acres in Eagle Pass. It will house 1,800 troops in private rooms and “have surge capability of taking on 500 additional troops should we need to deploy the Texas Tactical Border Force to this area,” said guard chief Major General Thomas Suelzer.

Suelzer said Texas will fortify operations north and south of Eagle Pass, a key target for illegal-alien invaders. More barriers are going up, and the state will deploy three fan boats and use more drones and radar trucks.

The base will feature a “700-seat dining facility, a recreation center, laundry facilities, WiFi access, individual rooms for soldiers starting at 118 square feet, chaplaincy programs, and medical and psychological health facilities.”

Biden Won’t Stop Invasion

In January, Abbott delivered an indictment of Biden that all but accused the doddering “commander in chief” of treason.

“The federal government has broken the compact between the United States and the States,” the Abbott said:

The Executive Branch of the United States has a constitutional duty to enforce federal laws protecting States, including immigration laws on the books right now. President Biden has refused to enforce those laws and has even violated them. The result is that he has smashed records for illegal immigration.

Indeed, Abbott laid the groundwork for impeaching Biden for high crimes and misdemeanors. He said that “Biden has ignored Texas’s demand that he perform his constitutional duties” and “violated his oath to faithfully execute immigration laws enacted by Congress.”

Instead of “prosecuting immigrants for the federal crime of illegal entry, President Biden has sent his lawyers into federal courts to sue Texas for taking action to secure the border.”

As well, Biden won’t deport illegals and instead “paroled” them to run wild into the heartland and American cities, Abbott observed. He also wasted tax money tearing down the state’s border barriers, which “enticed illegal immigrants away from the 28 legal entry points along this State’s southern border — bridges where nobody drowns — and into the dangerous waters of the Rio Grande.”
