The number of undocumented immigrant crossings at the southwest border for fiscal year 2022 topped 2.76 million

Texas' National Guard has been deployed after Joe Biden's administration was accused of opening the floodgates to illegal immigrants by cutting the Lone Star State's razor wire.

Republican Governor Greg Abbott confirmed the decision to bring Texas' National Guard to the US-Mexico border on social media.

He said: "Texas installed razor wire in Eagle Pass to stop illegal crossings.

"Today the Biden Admin CUT that wire, opening the floodgates to illegal immigrants.


"I immediately deployed more Texas National Guard to repel illegal crossings & install more razor wire."

Abbott added: "I officially declared an invasion at our border because of Biden's policies.

"We deployed the Texas National Guard, DPS & local law enforcement.

"We are building a border wall, razor wire & marine barriers. We are also repelling migrants."

The Texas Governor's comments come after much sparring between Austin and Washington.

The Department of Justice sued Texas in July after the Lone Star State installed a buoy barrier on the Rio Grande.

Washington and Austin have been battling the situation in the courts.

Democratic state Senator Roland Gutierrez, who is gunning to replace Ted Cruz on Capitol Hill, is backing Biden's push to row back on buoys.

He said: "The citizens and community of Eagle Pass are fighting back against the inhumane treatment of migrants under Operation Lone Star.

"Texans want real solutions to address border security and reform our broken immigration system. The days of Cruz’s negligence must come to an end."

A record-breaking 2,378,944 migrants crossed the southwest border during the last fiscal year.

However, there have already been 1,973,092 during 2023 through to July.
