Looks like Abbott decided to not give a shit, at least for now.

To end the risk that migrants will be harmed crossing the border illegally, you must fully enforce the laws of the United States that prohibit illegal immigration between ports of entry. In the meantime, Texas will fully utilize its constitutional authority to deal with the crisis you have caused.

Do the Feds have any legal right to take direct command of a state national guard?

Yes, POTUS can federalize the National Guard in some cases. 

Quote

As currently worded, the Insurrection Act allows the president to call up the active military or federalize the National Guard under three circumstances:

At the request of a state. That's how it was most recently used, when Pete Wilson, then the governor of California, asked for federal help in 1992 to control violent protests after police officers were acquitted in the attack on Rodney King.

To enforce federal law. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan ordered the Defense Department to provide military units to help suppress violence at a federal prison in Atlanta. The disturbance was over before the troops arrived.

To protect civil rights. This provision authorizes the president to use the military to suppress "any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy" if local law enforcement is unable to provide sufficient protection. It doesn't require the request — or even the permission — of the state. President Dwight D. Eisenhower used the power to send elements of the 101st Airborne Division to Little Rock, Arkansas, and to federalize the entire state National Guard to enforce court-ordered school desegregation. Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson invoked the same authority to enforce other desegregation orders in Mississippi and Alabama.

Texas is essentially telling the Supremes to Fark off.  But I am not sure what is the right thing to do right now.  

Theres more to the case than just jurisdiction. there' needs to be a writ of mandamus and a set of allegations of actual violation of the federal law by the feds. 

AND the case is still pending. 

If you have a state trooper who's robbing banks, do you arrest the trooper or does his state supremacy override your local police jurisdiction?

True. Remember, there is also the Texas State Guard, which is completely state-level and not federalizable. When in state status, the Texas National Guard is a component of the Texas Military Department, along with the State Guard.

So Texas can move everyone over to the State Guard and shut the lights out at the former HQ as they go?
