BREAKING: Florida sends up to a battalion of National Guard troops to help Texas protect US border

"Their mission will be to assist Texas in erecting barriers at the border to stop the invasion of illegal aliens."

Jarryd Jaeger Vancouver, BC
On Thursday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that he would be providing state troops to assist Texas in its quest to secure the southern border.

The members of the Florida State Guard and Florida National Guard will make their way down to the Lone Star state to help erect barriers.

"Florida has been assisting at the southern border since 2021, and we are sending more support from both the [Florida State Guard] & up to one battalion of [Florida National Guard]," DeSantis said in a post on X. "Their mission will be to assist Texas in erecting barriers at the border to stop the invasion of illegal aliens."

As a result of the Biden administration's inaction, officials in Texas have taken it upon themselves to increase personnel at the border, enact laws to deter illegal immigration, and install physical barriers to keep out those trying to make it into the country via unofficial ports of entry.

Since the Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that the federal government could give Border Patrol agents the go-ahead to cut down extra security Texas had put in place, a number of other states have come to Gov. Greg Abbott's defense, vowing to send members of their National Guard to assist.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
