Texas government and law enforcement leaders have stepped up efforts to make up for the federal government’s inability to control the United States border, with leaders spending the weekend preparing for a possible wave of more than 60,000 Haitian migrants. The majority of these Haitians are attempting to cross the United States border after first arriving in South America.
The Washington Examiner reported that the number of Haitian migrants headed to the U.S. could be four times the size of a previous group that made it across in Del Rio last month. The group at Del Rio was around 15,000, leading to chaos as thousands of migrants camped out by the border in hopes of being taken into United States federal custody.
Critics of the Biden regime claim that the current disaster at the border is manufactured, pointing to the incompetency of various individuals in the administration to address the crisis, especially ‘Border Czar’ Kamala Harris.
“Texas National Guard is gearing up at the border for increased caravans attempting to cross the border caused by Biden’s open border policy,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, wrote in a post on Twitter over the weekend. “They are working with the Texas Dept. of Public Safety to seal surge locations at the border & arrest trespassers.”

“I’ve never seen this,” Abbott said during a radio interview on the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show on Sept. 29. “We have multiple reports about different caravans coming to different regions across the border. And so what we’re going to do in response to it as we are preparing, as we speak, is exactly what you saw at the apex
