Soon after Greg Abbott invoked the Invasion Clauses of the US and Texas Constitution is when he sent the tanks.
I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion.
I'm using that constitutional authority, & other authorization & Executive Orders to keep our state & country safe: pic.twitter.com/2Jt5HEMgp5

According to the order, around 50 soldiers will be trained to operate the vehicles, and state officials will identify 10 positions to station them along the border.

“These actions are part of a larger strategy to use every available tool to fight back against the record-breaking level of illegal immigration, The Texas National Guard is taking unprecedented measures to safeguard our border and to repel and turn-back immigrants trying to cross the border illegally.” – The Texas Military Department
That must include securing the border.
Since Biden became President about 100 on the terrorist watch list have been apprehended. Who knows how many terrorists evaded apprehension?
You fund security for borders of other countries.
Time to prioritize American borders. https://t.co/4rgIHaohfh

Most likely the tanks-like vehicles wont be used in a combat situation, they are probably just there for roadblocks and to deter illegal aliens.
Mexico is not sending their best.
We must stop the invasion and secure the Texas Border. If the federal government won’t deport the invaders, Texas must.@GregAbbott_TX – send them back into Mexico. No more catch and release.
