GOP Governors, Border Patrol Union Stand with Abbott in Border Battle with Biden

Eagle Pass, Texas, takes center stage on Sunday as 14 governors join Gov. Greg Abbott to show solidarity against President Joe Biden’s border policies and support for states’ constitutional right to self-defense.

After the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last month that Border Patrol agents could destroy concertina wire barriers on state land near Eagle Pass, 25 governors said they would “stand with Texas.”

The ruling was issued in one of three lawsuits filed over Texas’ border security measures in the Eagle Pass area. City and county officials declared an emergency and issued disaster declarations there in response to an influx of illegal border crossers and crime.

Abbott has invoked the self-defense clause of the U.S. Constitution, saying the president broke his constitutional compact with the states and Texas has a constitutional right to defend its border when the federal government won’t. Twenty-five governors agree, saying if the president “won’t defend us, states will have to defend themselves.”
