Texas is taking a stand on border security. Gov. Greg Abbott has authorized the use of floating barriers on the Rio Grande to deter illegal border crossings. The Department of Justice, however, deems these barriers a safety and navigation risk, threatening to sue Texas. Abbott asserts the state’s sovereign right to defend its border, pointing to the human tragedies resulting from illegal crossings. He vows to continue all strategies to safeguard Texas residents and migrants risking their lives in dangerous crossings. Meanwhile, the barriers, spinning buoys designed to deter illegal crossings, remain a point of contention. This is part of Texas’ broader Operation Lone Star effort, fighting the consequences of current immigration policies.
