Federal Government To Fund Texas Border Security Operation

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today announced that Texas will receive funding from the federal government in support of Operation Secure Texas. With today’s announcement, Texas National Guardsmen and women currently serving in support of Operation Secure Texas will transition to federal orders beginning in late July.


“The taxpayers of Texas have funded border security, a federal responsibility, for far too long,” said Governor Abbott. “I am grateful that the federal government and Congressional appropriators are stepping up and dedicating additional resources to provide for the safety and security of all Texans. The State of Texas also extends it gratitude to the men and women of the Texas National Guard and Department of Public Safety for their continued commitment to securing our border.” 


Operation Secure Texas was launched in 2014 as a coordinated effort between the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas National Guard, and federal law enforcement to secure Texas’ border with Mexico.
