Officials in Texas increased efforts to secure the border between the United States and Mexico, footage posted on Sunday, December 5, shows.

The efforts are part of Operation Lone Star, an initiative launched by Texas governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to assist state border patrol.

A post on the official Facebook page of the DPS shows footage of boats on the Rio Grande river monitoring the border. “Today we enhanced operations in La Joya to stop the flow of migrants entering Texas illegally,” the Facebook post read.

In September, thousands of migrants gathered underneath the Del Rio International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas, causing the mayor of Del Rio to declare a local state of emergency and prompted the Department of Homeland Security to deploy hundreds of additional agents to process the large number of migrants.
