Texas land commissioner George P. Bush has responded to rumors on social media that protesters plan to pursue the Alamo.
Bush, the eldest son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, responded with a “simple” message: “Don’t mess with The Alamo”
He said his office is “closely watching the social media posts and rumors from protestors who are threatening to come to The Alamo.”
Bush Alamo rangers, San Antonio police officers, the Deptartment of Public Safety and the National Guard will be deployed to protect the “sacred” site.
Bush’s full statement reads: “The Alamo is the Shrine of Texas Liberty. And it will be defended. My office is closely watching the social media posts and rumors from protestors who are threatening to come to the Alamo. Rest assured we have already deployed, for several weeks and will continue to do so, the Alamo Rangers in partnership with SAPD, The Department of Public Safety and The National Guard to protect this sacred site. My message to the protestors is simple: Don’t mess with The Alamo.”
