EDINBURG, Texas (ValleyCentral) — Gov. Greg Abbott delivered tamales to those working at the southern border as part of Operation Lone Star.

Abbott stopped by Delia’s Tamales and then met with Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and Texas National Guard service members.

DPS Executive Director Steve McCraw, Texas Military Department (TMD) Major General Tracy Norris, and Deputy Adjutant General for Air, Maj. Gen. Thomas Suelzer will be joining the governor.

The gesture is a thank you “to the troopers and service members for their service and sacrifice to secure our southern border,” said a release.
