Texas is receiving aid at the border from its neighboring state, Florida, through means of law enforcement officers and resources to help fight the current Biden border crisis.
On Tuesday, Florida Governor and potential Presidential candidate Ron DeSantis, announced that he will be deploying officers, drones and resources to help Texas with the ongoing crisis at the border.
“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,” said DeSantis. “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.”
A source with the Department of Homeland Security, who spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution, told this reporter it is “a shame that the governors of the states are having to step up and do what the federal government will not.”
“Lifting Title 42 has created a negative pressure which is bringing in Nicaraguans in massive numbers, and the Chinese numbers have exploded. We never used to see Chinese family Units. Now it’s common.”
The DHS source said that there is a very serious concern about the number of “single military age males” that are entering the country without families and there are not sufficient security background screenings.
“If even 1% of them are coming in as future combatants, then we are in for a bad future,” the source stated.
The DHS source noted that more than 100 terrorists have already been intercepted at the border and warned that many more may have already entered without being captured.
It’s like a “scene in the movie Red Dawn,” but instead of an adversary parachuting into the nation under an attack the illegal migrants only had to “wait until Biden was elected and they could walk across the border.”
According to reports from Fox News, the Florida Governor’s office has over “1,100 assets and resources available to assist.” The report listed that as of Tuesday there are, “101 Highway Patrol personnel, 200 Department of Law Enforcement officers, 800 National Guard soldiers, emergency management personnel, 17 unmanned drones and 10 vessels, including airboats.”
Florida is using, the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) to provide these resources to Texas. According to EMAC’s website, members, which include all 50 states, Washington D.C, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands “can share resources from all disciplines, protect personnel who deploy, and be reimbursed for mission-related costs.”
This is not the first time DeSantis has assisted Texas. In 2021, DeSantis assisted Texas and Arizona with support by means of law enforcement to help secure the southern border.
