BOOM: Gov Abbott to build huge military base at Eagle Pass

Governor Greg Abbott has announced that Texas will be building a huge military base at Eagle Pass in order to increase operations protecting the Texas border from illegal crossings.

The Texas military base camp will be 80-acres in size:

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has announced plans to construct a military base for the state’s National Guard in the border town of Eagle Pass as part of efforts to keep illegal immigrants from crossing into the United States in that area, the Washington Examiner reported over the weekend.

In explaining his announcement of the new base — which will eventually house some 1,800 National Guardsmen, with the first phase of 300 beds available in April — Abbot said at a press conference that it “will increase the ability for a larger number of Texas Military Department soldiers in Eagle Pass to operate more effectively and efficiently.”

Abbott continued that “before this effort here, they had been living in conditions that were atypical for military operations,” explaining that troops are scattered around the area, living in tents, hotels and private residences, and some have to drive an hour to get to Eagle Pass, according to The Texas Tribune.

Abbott added that due to “the magnitude of what we’re doing, because of the need to sustain and actually expand our efforts of what we’re doing, it’s essential that we build this base camp for the soldiers.”

The news comes as Texas has spent more than $124 million in less than two years to bus illegal migrants out of the state to various sanctuary cities, the Washington Examiner reported.

More than 10 million migrants have reportedly crossed the border illegally since President Joe Biden entered the White House, the most ever recorded for any administration in the same time period.

Abbott is so far winning this fight to take over the Texas border and I hope he prevails entirely. It’s a really big job but Joe Biden has left Abbott no choice but to stop this invasion from happening. And I’m so glad he’s finally doing it.
