UNITED STATES—On Wednesday, June 16, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that the state of Florida would be sharing its law enforcement officers to help secure the U.S. border.
Governor Greg Abbott of Texas and Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona asked DeSantis for backup to protect the border. According to reports, there is a surge of migrants coming across the boarder.
Governor Ron DeSantis said in an statement, “I think the sad thing about why we are here today is that this is a created crisis through bad policy.”
“Florida is going to step. We wish we didn’t have to, but if they ask for our support, Florida is going to be there and we are going to do all we can…”
“The Biden administration has abandoned its responsibility to apply federal law, to secure the border, and to enforce the immigration laws and Texans are suffering as a consequence of that neglect by the Biden administration. In the federal government’s absence, Texas is stepping up to get the job done. We will build the wall. We will secure the border, but most importantly, we will restore safety to the citizens living in the lone star state,” said Governor Abbott.
NBC’s Lester Holt interviewed Vice President Kamala Harris asking her about the border. to which she replied “I haven’t been to Europe either. I don’t see the point you are making.”
According to nonprofit, Numbers USA, a total of 173,460 illegal aliens were apprehended by Border Patrol in April 2021.
Congressman Byron Donalds of Florida visited Donna, Texas, to which he referred to as, “the Biden Border Crisis.” Rep. Donalds tweeted, “The first thing I see are buses. I wonder where Admin is shipping the problem to?”
A source told Canyon News that they saw busloads of immigrants coming into Huntsville, Alabama. Another tipster reported that a plane owned by Barry airlines was flown into Bessemer Municipal Airport in Bessemer, Alabama full of unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs).
Canyon News contacted public officials in Alabama, but did not hear back in time for print.
