The Biden Administration has announced plans to send 800 U.S. troops to the southern border to assist with processing the influx of border crossers, but they will not be aiding in law enforcement.  Biden’s DHS said the active-duty troops will “assist with logistics and other functions at the border to allow more Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents and officers to return to their core mission and responsibilities.”  They will join the 2,500 other National Guard members already deployed at the border who are aiding with paperwork and other processing operations. Local law enforcement commented that nearly 4,000 illegal crossings have occurred at Eagle Pass, Texas, in the past several days. Texas Department of Public Safety spokesperson Chris Olivarez posted on X (formerly known as Twitter): “Due to the unprecedented influx of illegal immigrants crossing between the ports of entry, DPS Troopers & @TXMilitary will regain control, support local, county, & federal authorities, & maintain an enforcement posture.”
