On the border, down near Del Rio, TX, we're seeing an influx of Haitian folks trying to get into the US. Over 10,0000 the last I heard. Most of them camped under the International Bridge. Governor Abbot has sent a bunch of DPS folks down there to try and stem the flow.
There is liberal outage, I understand, because the Texans brought horses. Imagine that! Texas law enforcement on horses. The photo below is causing especial angst because... I don't know hy.
That trooper ain't whipping anyone. With his left hand, he is controlling the horse, with his right hand, He is grabbing the miscreant by the shirt-sleeve. That rope-looking thing between them seems to be loose. It doesn't appear to the rains.
Here's another photo.
