President Biden has given Texas Governor Greg Abbott a 24-hour deadline to allow federal agents to clear out Eagle Pass or "face consequences," according to Texas Congressman Wesley Hunt.
Half of US governors, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are siding with Texas in the border dispute saying, "Biden is leaving country ‘vulnerable’ to illegal immigration."
"If the Constitution really made states powerless to defend themselves against an invasion, it wouldn’t have been ratified in the first place and Texas would have never joined the union when it did," DeSantis wrote on social media. "TX is upholding the law while Biden is flouting it. FL will keep assisting Texas with personnel and assets," he added.
Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is also backing Texas in its fight against the federal government over border security.
Texas is refusing to remove razor wire per the Supreme Court and instead is deploying more along the border.
Meanwhile, Democrats accuse Texas of using the National Guard to "create chaos" at the border.
