Texas Governor Abbott's decision to lock down Eagle Pass has resulted in a decrease in illegal border crossings, according to reports.

The ongoing tension between Texas and the Biden administration has seen red state governors rallying behind Texas and its efforts to defend the border.

Eagle Pass, known as one of the busiest ports of entry for illegal immigrants, has witnessed significant improvements since Texas implemented its lockdown measures. In January, it was reported that Texas had seized property along the Rio Grande in Shelby Park due to the Biden administration's failure to secure the border.

The impact of Texas' border security measures is evident in the statistics. The number of illegal crossings has seen a major drop from December to January. According to the CBP, there were over 71,000 apprehensions in December 2023, but by January, that number had decreased to just over 16,700, marking a 76 percent decrease in just one month.

The situation in Eagle Pass had reached crisis levels in recent months, with mass crossings at the Rio Grande posing significant dangers, particularly for women and children. While the decrease in illegal border crossings is undoubtedly positive news for Texas, the border crisis is far from being resolved. Smugglers and cartels are likely to adapt their strategies and shift their operations to other ports of entry.

Recent data from the CBP reveals that in the last week of January alone, over 32,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended, with over 71 percent of them being in Arizona and California. This highlights the failure of the Biden administration to effectively protect the border, as the problem is simply being shifted to different areas.

With the upcoming election year, President Biden has been forced to address the border issue. However, the intentional neglect displayed by the administration suggests a lack of genuine intent to secure the border. It is estimated that approximately 11 million illegal immigrants have entered the U.S. in the past three years, further emphasizing the urgency of finding a comprehensive solution to the border crisis.
