Texas temporarily removes barbed wire on border

Texas soldiers have temporarily taken down a portion of barbed wire that was installed to keep immigrants from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into El Paso, according to the state.

National Guard soldiers deployed to the border removed the circular concertina wire in what the Texas Military Department said was related to maintenance, not a reversal of the state’s enhancement of border enforcement.

“Wire was temporarily removed to allow the International Border and Water Commission access to mow and service the area,” the Texas Military Department said in a statement Monday afternoon. “The Texas National Guard increases security personnel during the period of mowing and reinstalls the barriers upon completion. This mowing reduces vegetation and increases the ability to detect illegal activity.”
