Police are lining up their vehicles near Eagle Pass, Texas, to help Border Patrol agents stop the illegal crossing of caravan migrants who arrived in the Mexican border town of Piedras Negras last week. Texas Governor Greg Abbott deployed an additional Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers to the region to assist in securing the border section that has no physical barriers to prevent illegal crossings.
Abbott took to Twitter to share an image of the police forming a wall with their vehicles and said additional Department of Public Safety troopers have been deployed to the region to assist in securing the border section that does not have a physical barrier.
“Texans ask: what’s going on at Eagle Pass?” Governor Abbott tweeted. The governor’s tweet includes a photo showing a large number of DPS vehicles lined up with Border Patrol vehicles along the Rio Grande River near the border community.
Texans ask: what’s going on at Eagle Pass? Below is a picture & statement showing that TX Dept. of Public Safety is on top of it. As part of our border security plan we keep DPS on the border with boats & planes. They work with local & federal authorities to enforce the law. pic.twitter.com/R4m0K11jLf

White Democrats fight to prevent a physical wall over a modest 200 miles, real Americans are taking matters into their own hands. In what has been described as a ‘show of force’ to the approaching caravan, those brave men and women have sent a clear message to those looking to cross – we’re here and ready!
Washington Examiner reporter Anna Giaritelli tweeted a video over the weekend of the police forming the wall, which is undoubtedly a clear message that Texas is going to defend the border:
Prior to the arrival of the nearly 2,000 Central American caravan migrants last week, the Del Rio Sector already witnessed a 364 percent increase in the number of migrant families apprehended in the sector. Eagle Pass falls under the jurisdiction of the Del Rio Sector, True Pundt reported.
While Democrats are doing everything imaginable to prevent Trump from building the wall on the southern border between the United States and Mexico. If Congress doesn’t reach an agreement on border security by Feb. 15, part of the federal government will shutdown again.
