    500 Texas state troopers sent to the border

    Thousands of migrants arrive at Texas-Mexico border, prompting 500 state troopers to respond

    A Central American caravan of almost 2,000 people has arrived just outside the Texas-Mexico border with the hopes of crossing into the United States, according to officials.

    Authorities say the migrants, consisting of men, women and children, arrived Monday, Feb. 4, 2019 in the Mexico city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, across the Rio Grande from Eagle Pass in Maverick County, Texas.


    There to meet the sudden influx of migrants is a surge in law enforcement that includes multiple sheriff's offices, the U.S. Border Patrol and the Texas Department of Public Safety.


    "If anyone tries to cross the border illegally, they'll be arrested," said Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber.


    Schmerber said about 500 Texas state troopers had arrived in Maverick County by Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, along with 50 reserve deputies from across the state.


    "We feel very comfortable that police from other counties are ready to respond," Schmerber said.


    Including the U.S. Border Patrol and personnel from surrounding county sheriff's offices, Schmerber said two SWAT teams also are on standby to maintain order.


    "When I went to Mexico this morning, the mayor of Piedras Negras was there and told me around 1,800 (migrants) — about 80 percent from Honduras — were there," said Schmerber.


    "One group of migrants is hoping to make it into Arizona and another group to Minnesota," Schmerber said.

    Texas 'navy' to patrol the Rio Grande


    Texas will deploy a fleet of six gunboats on the Rio Grande.

    Texas 'navy' to patrol the Rio Grande

    Texas is getting its own navy.

    Next month, the state's Department of Public Safety will deploy the first of a fleet of six gunboats on the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border between the state and Mexico, CNN affiliate WFAA-TV reports.

    The 34-foot-long boats, each powered by three, 300-horsepower outboard engines, will have bulletproof plating and six machine guns apiece, not unlike the river patrol boats the U.S. Navy used during the Vietnam War.

    The vessels will be able to operate in as little as 2 feet of water, according to the report, and will work with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to combat drug smuggling coming across the Rio Grande.

    "They're finding out when those people are coming across, and one of the things they need to be able to do is interdict them on the water," Texas state Rep. Paul Workman told CNN affiliate KVUE-TV when the first of the boats, the JD Davis, was christened in December.

    "If you're trying to suppress organized smuggling activity, there's no substitute for putting people on the ground," Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven C. McCraw said at the December ceremony. "The way they're operating right now, you need them on the water as well."

    "It sends a message: Don't mess with Texas," Jose Rodriguez, a regional commander of the Texas Department of Safety, told WFAA.

    The six boats will be named after Texas state troopers killed in the line of duty. The first was named after Jerry Don Davis, who was shot and killed in 1980. Another, to be commissioned Thursday in Austin, will be named in honor of trooper David Irvine Rucker, who was killed in 1981, according to The Brownsville Herald.
