Another Republican governor is doing what Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have refused to do – take the border crisis seriously and actually do something to address the issue.
Ohio Republican Gov. Mike DeWine is sending National Guard members to the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced today that he has approved a request from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the National Guard Bureau (NGB) to activate additional members of the Ohio National Guard in support of the Southwest Border (SWB) mission,” the governor’s office said in a statement.
“The requested 185 members of the Ohio Army National Guard will be deployed to provide non-law enforcement support to the United States Custom and Border Protection (CBP) at the SWB. The service members will be deployed on federal Title 10 status to assist CBP in late 2021,” the statement added.
It concluded: “The Ohio National Guard Soldiers will join the estimated 3,000 Guard personnel requested from other states to support the SWB mission. Approximately 115 members of the Ohio National Guard’s 1484th Transportation Company were previously deployed to support the Southwest Border operations at the request of DHS and NGB. These Soldiers currently remain on active duty.”
Ohio joined Florida, Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, and Arkansas in sending National Guard troops to the border.
And, it’s important to note that all six states are led by Republican governors.
A whopping 500,000 illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border into the United States since Joe Biden appointed Kamala Harris as the “border czar.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, only three months have passed since Harris took on the responsibility and the half a million figure only refers to those who have been apprehended.
Let’s repeat that: we are only aware of 500,000 illegals who have been caught at the U.S.-Mexico border in the last three months.
Image how many got into the country that we do not know about.
Data from CBP says around 180,000 immigrants are being caught per month.
In April agents arrested 178,854 illegal immigrants, the highest monthly figure for 21 years. That figure was then surpassed in May as agents apprehended 180,034 illegals.
A new poll on Joe Bide’s handling of the border crisis is bad news for Democrats.
According to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, a majority of Americans disapprove of the job Biden is doing on immigration.
The survey shows 51% of respondents are not satisfied with Biden’s handling of the border crisis while only 33% say they approve of how he’s handled the crisis.
According to a Texas/Texas Tribune poll, many Texans are furious about how the Biden administration is handling the crisis at the southern border.
A whopping 57% of Texas voters disapprove of Biden’s “handling of immigration and border security.”
When looking at Republicans alone, 89 percent disapprove of Biden’s leadership.
The poll also discovered that 34 percent of Texans considered immigration at the southern border to be the state’s biggest issue at the moment.
