The Florida National Guard is being deployed by Governor Ron DeSantis to assist in the fortification of the Texas-Mexico border.

DeSantis affirmed on Friday the allocation of National Guard personnel from the state to diverse areas in Texas in support of the initiatives initiated by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

“We have another round of personnel heading to the southern border today. This is part of a yearslong effort for us to help do what the federal government has refused to do – which is to actually defend this country’s borders. You’ve seen numbers that have been astronomical over these last three years.” DeSantis announced.

Additionally, 76 troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol will be deployed to Texas to aid in the border patrol operation in San Antonio.

DeSantis further discussed the unprecedented surge in the number of Chinese nationals traversing the Mexican border, an issue that has awoken national security experts to an entirely new set of concerns.

More than a dozen states have expressed their endorsement of Abbott’s illegal immigration agenda and pledged to furnish him with resources to aid in border security amidst unprecedented levels of illegal immigration.

Abbott is engaged in a number of legal disputes with the Biden administration at the moment.

Legal action has been threatened by the federal government in response to Texas’ seizure of Shelby Park near Eagle Pass.

Concurrently, lawsuits persist concerning the actions of the administration, including the removal of razor wire installed by Texas and the installation of beacons in the Rio Grande.

Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the administration when it granted an emergency appeal permitting agents to continue dismantling Texas-installed border wire along the border.
