Governor Abbott to Hold Border Security Update in Del Rio

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott will provide a border security update at the international bridge in Del Rio Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Governor’s Office, Abbott will be joined by Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw, Texas Military Department Adjutant General Tracy Norris, and National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd.

The trip to Del Rio comes days after thousands of Haitian migrants camped out under the bridge near points of entry in Del Rio.

The Biden Administration invoked Title 42 this week to deport many of the Haitian migrants.

Title 42 gives federal health officials power during a pandemic to take measures to limit the spread of a disease.
