In a bold and unprecedented move, Texas citizens have taken matters into their own hands by forming a grassroots effort to protect the state’s southern border. The move comes in response to the perceived inaction of the United States government in addressing the ongoing border crisis.
The group, calling themselves the “Border Guardians,” is comprised of concerned citizens from all walks of life, united by a shared belief that the federal government has failed in its duty to secure the border and protect the safety and interests of the American people.
Texas is not backing down. It's not like the Biden admin can do anything about it, anyway. What are they going to do, order the CBP to open fire on Texas National Guard troops? https://t.co/WDPWESTujs— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) January 23, 2024
“We can’t just sit back and watch as our communities are overrun by illegal immigrants and dangerous criminals,” said John Smith, a spokesperson for the Border Guardians. “The government has had ample time to address this issue, but they’ve done nothing. So now it’s up to us to step in and do what needs to be done.”

The Border Guardians have set up camp along the Texas-Mexico border, where they are working to prevent illegal crossings and apprehend those who attempt to enter the country without proper documentation. The group has also been working closely with local law enforcement to share information and coordinate their efforts.
Despite their noble intentions, the Border Guardians have faced opposition from the federal government, which has accused the group of interfering with its efforts to manage the border. The government has even gone so far as to file a lawsuit against the group, seeking to shut down their operations and prevent them from continuing their work.

“We are not the bad guys here,” said Smith. “We are simply trying to protect our country and our way of life. It’s a shame that the government is more concerned with protecting the rights of illegal immigrants than it is with protecting its own citizens.”

As the legal battle between the Border Guardians and the government continues, the group remains committed to their cause, vowing to continue their work until the border is finally secured.
