Texas has continued to defy President Joe Biden on the border issue and is offering cash for Texas Military Department members to man the border.

The Lone Star State is seeking "to deploy border security assets to high threat areas to deny criminal organizations the ability to illegally move drugs and people into Texas," according to TMD's website.

This comes amid ongoing tensions between Governor Greg Abbott and the Biden administration over the border with Mexico. On Monday, the Supreme Court sided with the Biden administration and held that federal Border Patrol agents were authorized to remove the razor wire installed under Abbott's orders near the border city of Eagle Pass.

Volunteers will work with the Texas Military Department full-time for up to $55 per day, according to the agency's website.
