Search for TX National Guardsman underway after ‘mission-related incident’ trying to rescue migrants from river

Conflicting reports are emerging over a Texas National Guard soldier who went missing following a “mission-related incident” on the U.S.-Mexico border. Fox News reported the soldier had drowned while rescuing migrants in the river, and that a body had been recovered.

However, the Texas Military Department sent this statement directly to Sara Carter:

A Texas Army National Guard Soldier assigned to Operation Lone Star has gone missing along the river during a mission related incident, Friday April 22, 2022 in Eagle Pass, Texas. The Soldier has not been found. We are aware of reports of a fatality, although those reports are inaccurate. The Texas Military Department, Texas DPS and Border Patrol are working rapidly to find the Soldier. More details will be released as they become available.

National Review reports “There have been several recent reports of migrants struggling to cross the Rio Grande due to the strong currents and high winds. Two North Dakota Army National Guardsmen were recognized last week after they rescued a group of migrants attempting to swim across the Rio Grande.”

The reports come as Border Patrol agents have been overwhelmed with an influx of migration at the border, prompting many, including Democrats, to urge President Biden not to rescind Title 42 next month.

Title 42 was implemented as a safeguard against the novel coronavirus pandemic and has allowed border agents to immediately expel migrants who cross the border illegally. Without a proper plan in place, Republicans and an increasing number of Democrats say ending the measure will enhance the already overwhelming crisis of migrant crossings.

    This is one of the major differences between Conservatives and Liberals: why rescue people who are trying to invade our country, and then help them complete the illegal entry? Of course human life is valuable, but there IS a surplus of humanity nowadays: there is no need to save lives on the grounds that survival of the human species is at risk of being wiped out.

    When people are trying to enter our country illegally it makes NO sense to help them enter, which is exactly what the Border Patrol is doing and violating federal law in the process.

    If the invaders are saved from drowning, they should be returned to the side of the Rio Grande River that they belong on; NOT brought to the US, thereby assuming responsibility for their lives when the US should have zero responsibility for anything other than returning them to the country they tried to leave. That action should be part of the law against illegal entry into the USA. Tell your representatives in Congress to sponsor this amendment to the laws.

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
