‘Take Our Border Back’ Convoy Holds Three Rallies To Defend Border

As the Biden administration actively seeks to prohibit Texas officials from securing the southern border, which has been overrun by illegal immigration since President Joe Biden took office, the “Take our Border Back” convoy recently traveled from Virginia to Texas to express their frustration with rampant unlawful migration in America.

The convoy held three rallies in three states, including one in the town of Quemado, about 20 miles from Eagle Pass, Texas, which is notorious for illegal immigration.

“The mission here is the border; that’s what we’re here for,” one of the speakers at the Quemado rally said.

Such comments come as the Biden administration and Texas state government fight over border security. The U.S. Supreme Court recently sided with the president, ruling that Border Patrol agents could cut or move through barbed wire installed by officials in Texas to deter illegal immigration.

Despite such a ruling, Texas has recently fought the Biden administration to protect Americans from unlawful migration. State officials recently seized control of Shelby Park in Eagle Pass and placed razor wire as an obstruction there.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) held a press conference in Shelby Park alongside 13 GOP governors to discuss the southern border crisis.

“A state can defend itself and its citizens to protect their safety from the imminent danger that we are facing and from an invasion of millions of people coming from across the globe into our country who are unaccounted for whatsoever,” Abbott said, noting that he would expand Operation Lone Star, launched in 2021 to tackle illegal immigration.

Biden’s refusal to secure the southern border has allowed millions of illegal immigrants to enter America and paved the way for the importation of fentanyl into the country, which has killed more than 100,000 Americans.

Another rally the convoy held took place in San Ysidro, California, where the event organizer, Scotty Saks, said the southern border is “a national security crisis.”

“We have a human trafficking problem on the border in proportions that we’ve never imagined,” Saks said during his speech to a crowd of approximately 200 people, according to the New York Post.

The convoy also had a third and final rally in Yuma, Arizona. Such events come after more than 2.4 million unlawful migrants were encountered at the southern border in 2023.
