Jan 25, 2024 | Political News

Democrats are calling on President Joe Biden to seize control of the Texas National Guard to prevent Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott from stationing them along the U.S. southern border.

Democratic Reps. Joaquin Castro and Greg Casar of Texas accused Abbott of defying the Supreme Court by continuing to station National Guard troops at the southern border and build illegal immigration deterrents out of concertina wire.

“Governor Greg Abbott is using the Texas National Guard to obstruct and create chaos at the border,” Castro posted on X on Tuesday. “If Abbott is defying yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, @POTUS needs to establish sole federal control of the Texas National Guard now.”
