ABBOTT: Operation Lone Star Readies Security Forces Ahead of Biden's Ending Title 42 on Thursday


“This is not a Texas problem; this is a United States problem. It’s the responsibility of New York or Chicago or the entire country to deal with the problem caused by Joe Biden and his open border policies.”
Governor Greg Abbott

Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – Governor Greg Abbott, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), and the Texas National Guard are continuing to work together to defend out state and to secure the Southern Border – to stop the smuggling of drugs, weapons, and people into Texas; and prevent, detect, and interdict transnational criminal behavior between ports of entry.
 
“The fact of the matter is, there are more people coming across the border every single day than there are migrants who are in Chicago or New York,” said Governor Abbott.

“This is not a Texas problem; this is a United States problem. It’s the responsibility of New York, or Chicago, or the entire country to deal with the problem caused by Joe Biden and his open border policies.”

Operation Lone Star continues to fill the dangerous gaps left by the Biden Administration's refusal to secure the border. Since the launch of Operation Lone Star, the multi-agency effort has led to:
 
  • Over 371,000 illegal immigrant apprehensions
  • More than 27,000 criminal arrests
  • More than 25,000 felony charges
  • And in the deadly fight against fentanyl, Texas Law Enforcement has:
    • seized over 385 million lethal doses of fentanyl during this mission.
Every individual who is apprehended or arrested – and every ounce of drugs seized – would have otherwise made their way into communities across Texas and the nation due to President Joe Biden's open border policies.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS FROM OPERATION LONE STAR:
 
Governor Abbott joined Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Wednesday to discuss New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ false, incendiary claims about Texas’ migrant busing mission. Noting that the Biden Administration expects up to 13,000 illegal immigrants to cross the border each day when Title 42 ends this Thursday, the Governor said busing migrants to self-declared sanctuary cities continues providing much-needed relief to Texas’ overrun border communities.
