Senator Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee supports Governor Greg Abbott’s actions to enhance security at the Texas border, particularly noting a significant decrease in migrant activity in the Eagle Pass region.

During her recent visit to Eagle Pass, she highlighted the noticeable changes since her last visit in January 2023, emphasizing the transformation from an overwhelmed area to one where Border Patrol has regained control over the Shelby Park region for operational purposes.

Senator Blackburn commended Governor Abbott’s initiatives, such as erecting more border barriers, increasing resources, and implementing a contentious law aimed at combating illegal immigration.

“Then to see it today, where they have put up buoys in the river, they’ve got containers at the water’s edge. They’ve got fencing and razor wire and to see how effective that is and helping them drop those numbers,” Senator Blackburn said.

“I think it’s wonderful that the state of Texas has moved forward, spending billions of dollars in order to secure their border. And it’s why now you’re seeing some of these illegal entrants go down to Arizona, New Mexico, California and try to find another way. But they are not going there to Eagle Pass, Texas,” Senator Blackburn added.

Senator Blackburn commended the decreased migrant activity at the river and lauded Texas authorities for intercepting drugs like fentanyl.

The ongoing border security dispute between Texas and the Biden administration saw Governor Abbott initiate Operation Lone Star in 2021.

Abbott’s administration implemented various measures like building a border wall, deploying the National Guard, and signing an anti-illegal immigration law, currently stalled due to legal challenges.

Blackburn proposed the Clear Act and Container Act to address the border crisis. She emphasized the effectiveness of barriers, urging other states to emulate Texas’ approach.

“They need to listen to what Border Patrol has been saying. They need a physical barrier, better technology, because cartels have superior technology, and then more officers and agents,” Blackburn said.

Blackburn concluded, “It’s kind of simple. Walls and barriers actually work. And you’re seeing that in Texas.”
