On Thursday, the state of Arkansas jumped into the fray. Gov. Sanders stated she will be deploying US National Guard troops stationed in Arkansas to the southern border.
Help is on the way
This came as a response to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s call for help as Title 42 slowly faded out of existence. This is leaving the Border Patrol agents in Texas greatly outnumbered.
President Biden’s failure at our border puts the entire country at risk.

Sanders assured she will aid Abbott in protecting the sovereignty of the border. She will do so by assigning around 80 guardsmen to the southern border by the beginning of July.
Sanders added the deployment was a necessary measure in response to Biden’s border policies, or lack thereof, which put the entire country at risk.
Sanders stepped up to rally her people, speaking against Sleepy Joe’s governing of this once-great country. She’s claiming his administration failed at repelling illegals, drug cartels, and human traffickers.
That being said, she assured the people of Arkansas have always stepped up when their help was needed and the border situation is no different.

National Guard general Jonathan Stubbs also chimed in, clarifying his force is more than qualified for the task. They’ve provided a similar service to other agencies numerous times in the past, whether they were matters of national or local importance.
Red states unite!
The statement from the governor’s office also showed the state of Arkansas deployed National Guard troops to the border several times prior to the current border crisis.
That’s including in 2006 and 2008 when they aided the Border Patrol agents.
One day before Sanders showed her support for Abbott’s efforts at the border, three other Republican governors also joined in, offering help to Border Patrol agents stationed in Texas.
Even earlier pledges have been made by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, as well as the governors of Mississippi, Iowa, Nebraska, and Tennessee.
This only goes to show how strong we are when we’re united. No amount of woke activism promoting immigration will be able to prevent Republican states from securing the border.
