COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

Texas is fighting to save America. Every day, they wade down the Rio Grande, probing the shores for a break in the razor wire now strung along the shore. Illegal migrants by the thousands, looking for the chance to dash across the border.
This is where Gov. Greg Abbott has taken his most muscular stand yet to break a historic mass migration event. Texas has greatly extended Operation Hold the Line, which since May has state police and National Guard block immigrants at the river’s edge. Many eventually swim back to the Mexican town of Piedras Negras — but they haven’t given up.
After all, in the bizarre logic under President Biden, while Texas may keep them out, if they find a federal Border Patrol agent, they’ll be let right in. It’s become a war: Texas actually enforcing the law, and the Biden administration fighting it at every step. “Here they won’t permit us to cross,” one dripping wet Venezuelan mother told me. “But on the other side there are some buses where you can turn yourself in and cross, so we’re going there.” The Del Rio Sector, which encompasses Eagle Pass, is now the most heavily trammeled sector in Texas. Some 30,000 people a month cross here.
Fed up with the feds, Abbott was given $5.1 billion for border security by his Republican state legislature and a quiver of six new border laws. Texas got to work, and thousands of yards of riverfront now stand denuded of riparian vegetation that once provided cover for illegal entries. Beneath Eagle Pass’ international bridges is a tightly fitted cargo container wall, then endless coils of concertina wire and chain link fencing stretching beyond line of sight, continually being extended both upstream and downstream.
