Before addressing the media at the press conference, Governor Abbott held a border security briefing for members of the Texas House of Representatives. The briefing aimed to update them on the state's unprecedented efforts to secure its borders due to President Biden's failure to do so. Deputy Director Martin highlighted DPS' achievements in making over 39,000 criminal arrests and seizing 458 million lethal doses of fentanyl - enough to kill every American.

Major General Suelzer then spoke about the efforts made by Texas National Guard soldiers in defending against President Biden's refusal to secure the border. He mentioned that Shelby Park has been established as a base camp to curb the flow of illegal crossings. Border Czar Banks also praised Operation Lone Star's border security measures, which have resulted in low border crossings.

Governor Abbott's efforts to secure the border have gained support from 13 other Governors who stand in solidarity with Texas. They have joined forces to defend the state against President Biden's border crisis.

The joint efforts of Governor Abbott, members of the Texas House of Representatives, and law enforcement agencies have proven effective in securing the Texas-Mexico border. With continued teamwork and strategic deployment of resources, they aim to decrease illegal immigration and ensure the safety of Texans and Americans.
