Former President Donald Trump urged governors to deploy their National Guard soldiers to prevent the entry of migrants and remove them back across the border.

Trump’s call for support follows statements from 25 Republican governors backing Texas’s efforts to secure its southern border.

The Department of Homeland Security sent a demand letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton regarding access to Shelby Park in Eagle Pass, with Governor Greg Abbott standing firm on the state’s control of the area.

“We encourage all willing States to deploy their guards to Texas to prevent the entry of Illegals, and to remove them back across the Border,” Trump wrote. “All Americans should support the commonsense measures by Texas authorities to protect the Safety, Security, and Sovereignty of Texas, and of the American people.”

“In the face of this National Security, Public Safety, and Public Health Catastrophe, Texas has rightly invoked the Invasion Clause of the Constitution and must be given full support to repel the Invasion,” he later wrote.

“If Greg Abbott needs more razor wire, I’ll load it into a pickup myself,” South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem said.

“By January 26, 2024, please confirm that the State will provide U.S. Border Patrol with the access described above,” DHS General Counsel Jonathan E. Meyer wrote. “If the State refuses the requested access in part, but not in whole, please specify what access you intend to deny.”

“Texas has a constitutional right to defend and protect itself,” Gov. Abbott said. “We will continue to hold the line.”

Since the start of the fiscal year, Border Patrol agents have apprehended over 460,000 migrants who illegally crossed the border into Texas.
