Amid President Biden’s administration dealing with yet another border crisis in Eagle Pass, Texas, Republican Governor Greg Abbott has taken initiative and is achieving results.
To aid the situation, the Texas National Guard and Department of Public Safety troopers were sent to the town after its mayor declared a state of emergency.
Sources from U.S Customs and Border Protection reported that on Wednesday, up to 10 thousand people had illegally crossed into Eagle Pass from Mexico – contributing to 270 thousand encounters throughout fiscal year 2023.
Former Texas Congressman Mayra Flores told Townhall in an interview, “The Mexican cartel is in full control of the southern border. This is a situation that we [people who live near the border] deal with on a daily basis.”
“It’s the best time for terrorists to come into the country, because we don’t have border security. We have a federal government that refuses to enforce the law.”
Flores, the wife of a Border Patrol agent, posted shocking pictures on Sunday of a Border Patrol Agent soaked in blood, claiming that he was assaulted by an undocumented immigrant near the US-Mexico border.
She shared on Instagram, “This is the type of violence that is being exerted on Border Patrol Agents by those who don’t want to be apprehended. The suspect was encountered by Border Patrol near McAllen, Texas. The suspect was labeled a rat by the cartels and fought against the agent until the backup arrived. Please pray for our men and women in uniform.”
Flores also posted a photo of an illegal who had been branded “a rat” by cartels and seemed to have a mark carved into his forehead, which was said to be done by a Mexican drug cartel member.
Flores also shared a photo of a wounded illegal who “was labeled a rat by the cartels.”

In 2022, Flores made waves in the political world by winning a seat that Republicans had not held for over 100 years. Despite her loss in the following midterms, she declared in July of the same year that she was running again, hoping to garner more backing from the GOP.
