Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.3

On Friday, National Guard troops in Humvees were stationed along the banks of the Rio Grande River in Eagle Pass, Texas. The Humvees are stationed in high-traffic areas for illegal crossings. The National Guard deployment is part of Governor Abbott’s Operation Lone Star that has been in effect since March. Where the guard troop’s blockade ends, construction crews continue the Texas border wall that will stretch along one of the busiest migrant crossing areas in Eagle Pass.
