Texas has taken control of Shelby Park in Eagle Pass to address the influx of illegal immigrants, defying the Biden administration’s demand to cede control.

Texas Department of Public Safety Spokesman Chris Olivarez posted on X, “Under the authority of [Governor Greg Abbot’s] Border Disaster Declaration, [Texas DPS] Troopers are arresting illegal immigrants for criminal trespass at Shelby Park in Eagle Pass. Troopers are enforcing criminal trespass on single adult men & women. The State of Texas will maintain a proactive posture in curbing illegal border crossings between the ports of entry.”

State troopers have started arresting illegal immigrants for trespassing in the park, and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has stated that the state will not give up control despite a cease-and-desist letter from the Department of Homeland Security.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said, “Texas will not surrender to Biden’s destructive open-border policies. Attorney General Paxton will continue to defend Texas as it uses its constitutional authority to defend state territory, sovereignty, and citizens.”

“Rather than addressing Texas’s urgent requests for protection, President Biden has authorized DHS to send a threatening letter through its lawyers. But Texas has lawyers, too, and I will continue to stand up for this State’s constitutional powers of self-defense. Instead of running to the U.S. Department of Justice in hopes of winning an injunction, you should advise your clients at DHS to do their job and follow the law,” he continued.

The Biden administration is determined to use legal measures to regain control of the park.
