Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will send up to 1,000 members of his National Guard to help protect the US-Mexico border in Texas.

From the NY POST:

Up to 1,000 Florida National Guard troops will be sent to the Texas border to stop the influx of migrants, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday morning.

The soldiers will be deployed “based on Texas’ needs,” according to a press release on the Florida governor’s website.

The Florida State Guard will also be sent to Texas to support Gov. Greg Abbott’s effort to repel migrants at the border – which is the first time the group has been deployed out of state, the release noted.

These deployments are in addition to officers from the Florida Highway Patrol, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement that are already at the border, the office said.

The governor, 45, made the announcement standing in front of members of the Florida National Guard and an orange sign that read “stop the invasion” in bold, black letters.

“States have every right to defend their sovereignty and we are pleased to increase our support to Texas as the Lone Star State works to stop the invasion across the border,” DeSantis added.

“Our reinforcements will help Texas to add additional barriers, including razor wire along the border. We don’t have a country if we don’t have a border,” he added.
