Six States Send Aid to Border

Governors of Texas and Arizona have requested help.

Ohio has joined five other states in sending National Guard members or law enforcement personnel to the U.S.-Mexico border to help federal and local law enforcement respond to sustained high levels of illegal migrants. The states have volunteered assistance following a request from Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona last month.

The 185 members of the Ohio Army National Guard will join ranks of Arkansas and South Dakota, which each opted to send Guard members instead of law enforcement.

Florida was the first state to send police officers from a dozen departments statewide to help their counterparts in border states. Nebraska has sent two dozen state troopers and law enforcement officers are also coming from Iowa. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody stated the importance of developing “strategic enforcement actions” to restore and maintain order and ”bring peace and protection” to the people.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For state governors and legislators seeking to secure the border and protect residents and migrants from danger.
  • For members of law enforcement and National Guard units as they help border states with immigration issues.
  • For the president and his administration to come up with sound policies for immigration.
