RED STATES STEP UP: GOP Governors Send Support to Defend Texas Border

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is the latest GOP ally to send National Guard Troops to help Texas Governor Greg Abbott secure the 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.”

According to The Daily Wire, “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.
