So the spotlight on the fight between Texas and President Joe Biden has refocused the nation on the crisis on the border.
The Biden administration has pushed back against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s efforts to have the Texas National Guard protect against thousands of illegal aliens crossing into his state. Now 25 governors of other states have spoken out to support Texas in its effort to defend its border.
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has joined in to add her voice supporting Texas. This past fall the governor had also signed onto a letter to President Biden critical of his policies securing the border. Ivey included Alabama now as a “border state” because of the refusal of the president to stop the flow of those illegally crossing into the United States.
This past October Ivey sent 275 Alabama National Guard Troops to the United States/Mexico border to assist in the defense of the border. Ivey had already sent state troops to the border in 2018 and 2021.
We will see if the governor sends troops back to Texas for a fourth time with the current crises created by the Biden administration.
