Join me in thanking the Texas National Guard for their daily work to secure our border.— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) September 23, 2021
Some work with the Texas Dept. of Public Safety to secure towns like Del Rio.
Others work to prepare for building a border wall & barriers.
Others guard remote areas.

"What we did, we put hundreds of Texas Department of Public Safety cars and created a steel wall — a steel wall of [Texas] DPS vehicles — that prevented anybody from crossing that dam that you've seen people walk across", he said, adding that authorities had "effectively" regained control of the border.
