January 29, 2024

(NewsNation) — A convoy of protesters who have deemed themselves “God’s Army” will reportedly make its way to the southern border next week as tensions rise between Texas and the Biden administration. The group plans to attend three separate rallies Feb. 3 in Texas, Arizona and California, according to its website. Their goal is to “shed light on the obvious dangers posed by wide open Southern borders,” according to a news release dated Jan. 12. According to Vice, convoy leaders say they want to send a message to the Biden administration to “secure our borders” as the White House and Texas Gov. Figures released Friday by Customs and Border Protection show there were 302,034 encounters at the southern border in December, a record monthly high.
