EAGLE PASS, TEXAS, August 21, 2023 – Governor Greg Abbott took to the skies for an aerial tour with the Texas Department of Public Safety to examine the border crisis. The move is part of Texas’ continued response to what the governor has referred to as “Biden’s border crisis.”
Governor Abbott has been vocal in criticizing the federal government’s handling of the border situation. The aerial tour is seen as a way for the state’s leadership to gain insight into the challenges faced on the ground and strategize ways to address them through land, air, and sea efforts. Details of the governor’s findings or any new initiatives resulting from the tour have yet to be released.
