Not long after Texas Governor Greg Abbott called for support from fellow Governors and he is already receiving a response. One governor, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is sending support to help the southern border against illegal aliens to help Governor Abbott.

On Tuesday, Governor Abbott wrote a letter calling for support from U.S. Governors to help him fight the southern border crisis. So far, he received a response from Idaho and Florida.

Florida Governor DeSantis said:

“The impacts of Biden’s Border Crisis are felt by communities across the nation, and the federal government’s abdication of duty undermines the sovereignty of our country and the rule of law.”
“At my direction, state agencies including law enforcement and the Florida National Guard are being deployed to Texas, with assets including personnel, boats, and planes. While Biden ignores the crisis he created, Florida stands ready to help Texas respond to this crisis.”

Division of Emergency Management Director Kevin Guthrie added:

“We stand with Texas as they work to repel illegal aliens at the border. We are prepared to assist however needed.”

  • five fixed-wing aircraft
  • 17 drones
  • 10 boats
  • 800 Florida National Guard members
  • 200 Department of Law Enforcement officers
