Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has invited a dozen other state attorneys general to the southern border later this week to witness firsthand what is happening there.

Slated for Thursday and Friday, the border tour will make stops in McAllen, Edinburg, Weslaco and Rio Grande City, according to a press release from Paxton’s office.

According to The Federalist, there have been more than 100,000 arrests at the southern border every month since last February. As a candidate, President Joe Biden spent months pushing open border policies and promised he would undo the border security protections enacted by then-President Donald Trump.

Just three months into fiscal 2022, the United States has recorded nearly half a million southwestern border encounters, with border apprehensions on track to exceed 2 million. By comparison, there were a record-breaking 1.7 million apprehensions in fiscal 2021.

In early December, the Biden administration announced it was restarting the Trump-era ”Remain in Mexico” policy, following a deal with the Mexican government, CNN reported.

Formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, the policy requires migrants to wait outside the United States for their immigration court hearings.

Biden had ended the policy when he took office, calling it inhumane. Officials in Texas and Missouri, however, sued the administration last April over the suspension, and a federal judge in Texas ordered its reinstatement.

In June, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced that the state would construct its own border wall and authorized the transfer of $250 million as a down payment.

“The State of Texas has taken comprehensive action to secure our southern border and address the border crisis while President Biden has sat idly by,” Abbott, a Republican, said at a press conference debuting the construction last month.

“Today not only represents the first phase of the Texas border wall, but it also serves as a major milestone in our efforts to combat illegal immigration, stop the smuggling of drugs and people, and keep our communities safe,” he said.

Paxton, a Republican, and his colleagues are scheduled to meet with officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, Border Patrol, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement for briefings, a border wall tour, and a boat tour on the Rio Grande.

”Biden’s disastrous immigration policies have wreaked havoc on our communities and placed a massive burden on our state and nation,” Paxton said. ”Because of the scale of this crisis, the effects of unprecedented levels of illegal immigration are felt by all states.”

The attorneys general of Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah and West Virginia are attending Paxton’s border summit, according to the release.


Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
