Texas National Guard Stops Illegal Crossings into El Paso

EL PASO, TEXAS — National Guard soldiers with the 36th Infantry Division were deployed to the Rio Grande at a popular crossing area that a huge wave of illegal immigrants have been using to get into the United States as Title 42 may or may not expire.

The deployment of National Guardsmen comes after the city of El Paso declared a state of emergency due to resources being under constant strain from the endless number of illegal immigrants. U.S. Customs and Border Protection has had to relocate people to other border cities to be processed and released quicker.

The overcrowded facilities may finally have some relief as the National Guard set up razor wire and is standing guard along the banks of the border with help from Texas state troopers. Behind the razor wire, soldiers have staged Humvees with state troopers using their police squad cars. This has resulted in illegal immigrants being unable to turn themselves over to Border Patrol at the usual crossing point. The stoppage may be temporary as migrants find another area not guarded by the military to cross into.

The placement of state authorities on the southern border is similar to when the Texas state police created a barricade out of their SUVs to prevent more Haitians from illegally crossing the Rio Grande during the international bridge crisis last year. It is unknown at this time how long the National Guard will stay along the banks of the river as the fate of Title 42 now rests in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court. The Department of Justice has asked the nation's highest court for Title 42 to be removed next week on December 27.
