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.”
