Are M1A1 tanks and Bradley infantry fighting vehicles being sent to protect the Texas border against illegal immigrants?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Tanks + IFVs Are Being Sent To Protect Texas Border!
On 1 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that M1A1 tanks and Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs) are being sent to protect the Texas border against illegal immigrants!
As usual, the article is long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!
Tanks + IFVs Are Not Being Sent To Protect Texas Border!
The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.
Fact #1 : Tanks + IFVs Are Not Being Sent To Protect Texas Border!
This is really silly, but it has to be said – the 1st Armored Division at Fort Bliss is not sending two M1A1 tank platoons, with Bradley IFVs to protect the Texas border against asylum seekers and migrants.
Why on Earth would armoured forces be needed to protect the border against unarmed men, women, and children???
What will Real Raw News claim next? That the US Navy is sending battleships and aircraft carriers to take on illegal immigrants???
Fact #2 : Two Children + Their Mother Drowned
Real Raw News claimed that a mother and a child drowned in while trying to cross the Rio Grande in early January 2024. That’s not accurate.
The incident did not occur in early January as Real Raw News claimed, but in mid January – on the night of 12 January 2024, to be precise. In addition, three people died, not two as Real Raw News claimed – a mother and her two children.
Victerma de la Sancha Cerros (33), her daughter Yore Rubi (10) and son, Jonathan Agustin (8), drowned while trying to cross the Rio Grande near Shelby Park. Another two migrants in that group – Monica de la Sancha Cerros (30) and her son, Victor Antonio (10) were rescued by Mexican officials.
Fact #3 : Texas Officials Blocked Access To US Border Patrol
At 8 PM of that tragic night, Mexican officials alerted the US Border Patrol about two migrants in distress on the US side of the river, near the Shelby Park boat ramp. When a Border Patrol agent arrived to help, personnel from the Texas Military Department refused the agent access to the park.
In court filings, Chief Border Patrol Agent Robert Danley said that federal agents were not permitted to visually monitor the Shelby Park area when the three deaths and two rescues happened. He also said Texas officials blocked mobile video surveillance inside the park’s area that can find migrants in distress.

Fact #4 : Mutiny Carries A Death Penalty Sentence
It is ridiculous to claim that the US military would deploy forces in opposition to the current Administration. The US military is subservient to the US civilian leadership, which is currently the Biden Administration under US President Joe Biden.
Deploying military troops without a direct order by the Biden Administration would be mutiny under Article 94 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). If those troops actually engaged in violence, it would also be considered an insurrection / rebellion.
Military personnel committing mutiny would be subject to a court martial, and those found guilty shall be punished by death or other alternative punishments that the court martial may decide.
Fact #5 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website
Real Raw News is a fake news website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.
To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.
That disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.
