Texas National Guard soldiers blocked a line of migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border on Wednesday, one day before the Trump-era Title 42 policy is set to expire.
Video captured by journalist Todd Bensman shows a wall of razor wire ordered by Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and state authorities blocking immigrants crossing the Rio Grande River attempting to enter the city of Brownsville, Texas.
“Great work by Texas National Guard and Texas DPS,” Abbott tweeted. “Biden sent 1,500 troops to the border to do paperwork. Texas deployed trained soldiers and troopers to take real action and respond to this crisis.”
