Texas National Guard Postures to Protect Texas


AUSTIN, Texas (December 22, 2022) – The Texas National Guard continues to surge additional personnel and equipment to respond to the border crisis in El Paso, Texas.

The Guard is moving 200 additional personnel and 40 additional high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles (HMMWV) to expand operations in the area.

Using four C-130J cargo aircraft, the Texas National Guard is expediting the flow of these additional forces to ensure rapid support to the forces already in El Paso, Texas.

All sectors along the border are increasing their response posture to protect Texas against the flood of migrants and cartel activity streaming into our state.
