South Dakota is sending National Guard troops to assist Texas in securing the U.S. southern border.
“Tomorrow morning I’m officially announcing up to 50 National Guard troops to Texas to help secure our border,” South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) tweeted on Monday. “The Biden Administration has failed to keep America safe. We shouldn’t be making our own communities vulnerable by sending police to fix Biden’s border crisis.”
The South Dakota national guardsmen will join others from Florida and Nebraska. Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts (R) announced last week that he would be sending troops to Texas to assist Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) stop illegal immigration and smuggling into the state. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced earlier this month that Florida would supply national guardsmen to Texas as well as Arizona.
Abbott joined with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R) to write a letter June 10 requesting aid from other states in suppressing illegal immigration along the southern border. The governors blamed the Biden administration for allowing the illegal immigration crisis to reach unprecedented levels.
