Texas Governor Greg Abbott has officially declared an invasion at the border

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has officially declared an invasion at the border due to Biden's policies and will deploy the Texas National Guard.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has said that there is an invasion taking place in the state as an influx of migrants arrive at the southern border.

Abbott spoke as Texas officials continue to disagree with the White House over the crossings where the Lone Star State meets Mexico. The border city of Eagle Pass is one of several areas experiencing a surge in the number of migrants, many of whom are reported to be from Venezuela, attempting to cross the border.

Border officials in Eagle Pass confirmed around 4,000 people arrived at the border on Wednesday, per NewsNation, and that, at one point, the queue stretched for five miles. 

Newsweek has yet to confirm this figure, and there is no official total.

Abbott made the announcement on Wednesday evening. "I officially declared an invasion at our border because of Biden's policies," 

the governor posted on X, formerly Twitter. "We deployed the Texas National Guard, DPS & local law enforcement. We are building a border wall, razor wire & marine barriers. We are also repelling migrants."

As well as his comments, Abbott 

posted a letter from November 2022 to 

Biden regarding the situation at the border, which makes similar claims to his X post. He said the president's policies were having catastrophic consequences, adding that Texas has no choice but to "escalate our efforts to secure the state."
