‘We the People’ Trucker Convoy Goes Viral as Thousands Plan to Defend Border

The new “We the People: Take Our Border Back” trucker convoy has gone viral on social media as thousands of Americans plan to defend the U.S. Southern Border.

The multi-day event commences in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and culminates with three rallies across three states, California, Arizona, and Texas on February 3, 2024.

The massive convoy of truckers will make its way to illegal migrant hotspots in a bid to shame Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration into tackling the worsening crisis.

Thousands of big rigs will head for Eagle Pass in Texas, Yuma in Arizona, and San Ysidro in California from January 29 for the four-day “Take Back Our Border” event.

They hope the eye-catching, all-American protest will draw further attention to record numbers of migrants crossing the Southern Border and into the U.S.

The move comes as multiple cities are now buckling under the weight of trying to care for record numbers of illegals.

In a post on X, Rep. Keith Self (R-TX) said: “Once again, the truckers are standing for We the People.

“The time is NOW to take action and secure our borders!”

The development is the latest in an increasingly heated and chaotic political fight over whether Texas can ignore or supersede the federal government.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott accuses the Biden admin of not doing enough to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into the Lone Star State.

Despite the Supreme Court ruling on Monday in favor of the Biden admin that Border Patrol agents can cut razor wire placed at the border if they feel the need to, Texas is doubling down.

The state added more wire fencing and is refusing to give up control of an Eagle Pass park it seized control of on Jan. 10.

Federal Border Patrol agents are barred from the area.

The feds have given the state a deadline of Jan. 26 to allow Border Patrol agents access to Shelby Park.

It’s unknown what, if anything, will happen if Texas refuses to comply with the federal government by Friday, but Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) ratcheted up the language– suggesting Biden use force.

“Governor Greg Abbott is using the Texas National Guard to obstruct and create chaos at the border,” Castro posted online.

“If Abbott is defying yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, @POTUS needs to establish sole federal control of the Texas National Guard now.”

But Texas has plenty of support, with 25 governors from Republican states releasing letters backing up Abbott.

“I think the border has now reached a boiling point, that you now see governors getting involved,” Self told Fox Business News.

“We have a trucker convoy coming down to the border.

“The American people are going to have to get involved.”

The group behind the convoy is asking all peaceful Americans to participate starting Monday, Jan 29th.

Trucks will be moving through the country, making stops along the way.

“These people are committed to a peaceful demonstration, that we have had enough– the American people have had enough,” Self said.

“We’re demanding the Biden Administration do its job, enforce the laws on the books and secure our border.”

For the fiscal year 2022-2023, there were a record 2.48 million interceptions along the southern border – and many more crossers who entered the United States undetected.

September 2023 saw an all-time high of 269,735 interceptions.

Migrants intercepted by Border Patrol agents can ask to apply for asylum.

They are usually released into the United States while awaiting their case to be heard by a court.
