Former President Donald Trump has called on “willing” states to deploy their National Guard to Texas to assist Gov. Greg Abbott in dealing with the ongoing “invasion” of illegal immigrants amid a Biden administration deadline to cease and desist.
On his Truth Social platform, the leading GOP presidential contender called on “willing states to deploy their [national guard] to Texas to prevent the entry” of illegal immigrants.
Trump’s call comes in response to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declaring an “invasion” of his state and invoking his right to “self-defense” under Article I of the U.S. Constitution.
“When I was President, we had the most secure Border in History. Joe Biden has surrendered our Border, and is aiding and abetting a massive Invasion of millions of Illegal Migrants into the United States,” Trump wrote on Thursday.
