On Thursday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed an agreement ceasing inspections of commercial vehicles entering the United States through West Texas in return for the Mexican state of Chihuahua agreeing to significantly boost security on Mexico’s side of the border.
As explained in a press release from Abbott’s office, the Texas governor “signed memoranda of understanding (MOUs) between the State of Texas and the State of Chihuahua and the State of Texas and the State of Coahuila to enhance border security measures that will prevent illegal immigration from Mexico to Texas and improve the flow of traffic across the Bridge of the Americas and the Acuña-Del Rio International Bridge. The MOUs go into effect immediately and mirror the historic MOU signed by Governor Abbott and Nuevo León Governor Samuel Alejandro García Sepúlveda yesterday in Laredo.”
“These MOUs with the State of Chihuahua and the State of Coahuila signal yet another historic step taken by the State of Texas to solve the border crisis, keep our communities safe, negotiate with our partners in Mexico, and fill in the gaps left by the inaction of the Biden Administration,” said Abbott. “Until President Biden decides to fulfill his constitutional duty to secure the border, we will continue to do whatever it takes to protect the safety and security of all Texans.”
Chihuahua Governor María Eugenia Campos Galván showed Abbott a plan containing new strategies to prevent migrants from illegally crossing the border. Abbott called it the “best border security plan that I’ve seen from any governor from Mexico.”
“Texas and Chihuahua are investing more than $200 million into the policy, Campos Galvan said. The investments will include drones to patrol the border and artificial intelligence databases connected to the driver’s license registry,” The Washington Examiner reported.
“This is a demonstration of commitment from a strong governor who is working collaboratively with the state of Texas, and I’m proud to sign the agreement with her at this time,” Abbott said of Galván.
