A group of migrants are processed by Border Patrol after crossing the river illegally near the highway on February 4, 2024 outside Eagle Pass, Texas. Eagle Pass, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) from Quemado, has become the epicenter of a prickly conflict between Texas Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, and the Biden administration. The federal government is suing Abbott for taking control of Shelby Park that includes an access ramp to the river, and for laying barbed wire along the riverbank.
