Govs. Greg Abbott and Doug Ducey Plead with Other States to Help Them Address the Border Crisis – By Julio Rosas (Townhall) / June 15 2021
Governors Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Doug Ducey (R-AZ) sent a letter to governors all across the country to send any available law enforcement resources to their states to help with the ongoing border crisis.
Their calls for help come as apprehensions by U.S. Customs and Border Protection along the U.S.-Mexico border have reached record highs, along with illegal immigrants having an easier time avoiding apprehensions. Abbott launched Operation Lone Star in March, sending Texas state troopers and National Guardsmen south and Ducey also deploying the state’s National Guard to the southern border.
The # of illegal border crossings this fiscal year is already the most since 2006. This is a crisis, our law enforcement professionals need help.
