Trump calls for all 'willing' states to deploy National Guard to Texas border and start the deportations --Many state governors have called to support Texas in the border crisis. | 25 Jan 2024 | Former President Donald Trump posted to his Truth Social account that he is encouraging all "willing states to deploy their [national guard] to Texas to prevent to entry" of illegal immigrants. Trump made the call to do so after Texas Gov. Gregg Abbot declared an invasion and invoked Texas' right to "self-defense" in the First Article of the Constitution. At least 14 states have signaled supporting Texas in its efforts. In the post, Trump touted his record on immigration when he was president. "When I was President, we had the most secure Border in History. Joe Biden has surrendered our Border, and is aiding and abetting a massive Invasion of millions of Illegal Migrants into the United States."
