Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is the first to answer a call for help by Arizona and Texas to stop rampant, unchecked illegal immigration over the southern border.
Article 4, Sec. 4 of the United States Constitution mandates that the federal government protect America from foreign invasion. As James Madison said, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined”. Evidently the Biden administration is too concerned with white supremacy and global warming to address the invasion of illegal aliens, who beef up the democrat base.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott “sent a letter to all US governors requesting law enforcement support along the border” for their respective states on June 10th. Ducey stated that the number of “illegal border crossings this fiscal year is already the most since 2006.” “This is a crisis, our law enforcement professionals need help,” he said.
“Dangerous substances and firearms are being smuggled across our border. Children are being trafficked,” Gov. Ducey explained. “This poses a serious threat to border communities, and all communities across the nation,” he continued.

“We’re here today because we have problems in Florida that are not organic to Florida that we’ve been forced to deal over many years, but particularly over the last six months because of the failure of the Biden administration to secure our southern border. And, indeed, to really do anything constructive about what is going on in the southern border,” the Florida Governor said during a press conference.
Gov. Greg Abbott additionally announced on June 16th that Texas will be building their own border wall:
“The Biden Administration has abandoned its responsibilities to secure the border and Texans are suffering as a result,” said Governor Abbott. “The problems along the border are only getting worse due to President Biden’s inaction. Property is being destroyed, deadly drugs and illegal weapons are being smuggled into communities throughout the state, law enforcement is having to redirect their resources, and county judges and mayors are facing skyrocketing expenses. Texas is doing more than any state has ever done to protect the border, but it is clear that more is needed. In the Biden Administration’s absence, Texas is stepping up to get the job done by building the border wall. Through this comprehensive public safety effort, we will secure the border, slow the influx of unlawful immigrants, and restore order in our border communities.”
