Texas National Guard Soldier Missing After Attempting to Rescue Migrants


Update: Body Armor and radio, as well as the body of a woman, found on the banks of the Rio Grande. Still no word on the National Guard Soldier.


Reports coming in that a Texas National Guard Soldier has drowned in the Rio Grande River near Eagle Pass, after attempting to help migrants in distress.

Texas DPS has confirmed one body has been recovered. This story is developing.

Operation Lone Star, which has deployed 10,000 service members to the Texas Border, is a state-led military operation designed to stem the migrant crossings and illegal narcotic trade into the United States from Mexico.

According to Texas Governor Abbot: “Since the launch of Operation Lone Star, multi-agency efforts have led to more than 236,000 migrant apprehensions, along with almost 14,000 criminal arrests — and more than 11,300 felony charges. Over 3,800 weapons and almost $30 million in currency have been seized. In the fight against fentanyl, DPS has seized over 300 million lethal doses throughout the state.”
