DEMOCRATS PRAISE GOV. ABBOTT’S
OPERATION LONE STAR

“As Beto O’Rourke continues to deny the border is even an issue, South Texas Democrat lawmakers disagreed in this morning’s Texas Tribune.” – Mark Miner, Communications Director

Democrat Kenedy County Judge Charles Burns On Operation Lone Star’s National Guard Deployment: “Since they’ve been there, the number of bailouts and the number of intrusions into private property and going through gates and fences has decreased. I think their presence has been very beneficial to the county.”

Democrat Kenedy County Sheriff Ramon Salinas On Operation Lone Star’s National Guard Deployment: “We needed it. They’ve come through for us, and I appreciate everything the governor has done. … It’s really made a big difference.”
