Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) toured the Texas National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) border security assets after an aerial tour of the Texas-Mexico border on Monday, in Eagle Pass.
The governor was joined by Texas DPS Director Steve McCraw and Adjutant General of the Texas Military Department Maj. Gen. Thomas Suelzer.
Following the tours, the governor held a border security briefing and a press conference to discuss Texas' response to secure the border.
The tour comes after a federal judge in Louisiana refused to end pandemic-related restrictions on migrants seeking asylum on the southern border. The judge on Friday blocked a plan by President Joe Biden's administration to lift the restrictions known as Title 42.
