Governor Greg Abbott of Texas highlighted the significant decrease in illegal border crossings in Eagle Pass, TX, attributed to the installation of razor wire.

He emphasized the importance of states’ right to self-defense under the US Constitution, particularly in the face of imminent harm and invasion.

Abbott mentioned that more than half of the governors are supporting Texas in this regard.

The deployment of razor wire has resulted in a substantial reduction in migrant inflow, with daily crossings dropping from thousands to just a few individuals.

Abbott urged for continued resistance and border security measures, criticizing President Biden’s stance on the issue.

“Maria, more than half of the governors are now joined together in support of a very important proposition. And that is, we are guaranteed by the United States Constitution the right of self-defense if states face imminent harm or invasion. Texas obviously is facing both, an imminent harm, as well as an invasion,” Abbott said.

“These governors are rallying around Texas to support our ongoing right to self-defense and the deployment of this razor wire that has led to a massive reduction in inflow. Maria, get this. The area where we have occupied this park in Eagle Pass, Texas, that we put up the razor wire, there used to be 3,000 or 4,000 people crossing that area a day.”

“For the past three days, we have averaged just three people crossing that area. The point is, if we put up resistance, we show that we can secure the border. Joe Biden should not be stopping that,” he said.
