Arizona Sends National Guard to Border Amid Surge of Migrants

Great job, guys.

I’ve been enjoying the great work taking care of these people who come to our country to feed off of us.

I really love seeing them on the streets everywhere. It’s so enjoyable to me.

I haven’t felt this much joy since my first time playing Starfield.

New York Post:

Arizona’s governor on Friday ordered the state’s National Guard to the border with Mexico to help federal officials manage an influx of migrants.

Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs said she issued the executive order because “the federal government is refusing to do its job to secure our border and keep our communities safe.”

I am taking action where the federal government won’t,” Hobbs said.

It was unclear when the troops would arrive at the border and exactly how many would be mobilized.

Hobbs asked President Joe Biden’s administration a week ago to mobilize 243 Arizona National Guard troops already in the Border Patrol’s Tucson sector that includes Lukeville, Arizona, to help federal officers reopen the border crossing that was indefinitely closed Dec. 4.

Customs and Border Protection has said shutting down the official crossing was necessary to allow personnel stationed there to help Border Patrol agents manage the hundreds of migrants illegally crossing in that area daily.

Although remote, the crossing is a popular route for Arizonans traveling to the Mexican resort of Puerto Peñasco, or Rocky Point, about 62 miles south of the border on the northern shores of the Sea of Cortez.

Hobbs said the National Guard members will be stationed at multiple locations along the southern border, including around Lukeville.

Hobbs said the Biden administration had not responded to her request that the US government reimburse Arizona for border security spending.

It’s so funny the media calls “processing migrants” – that is, bringing them across the border and making sure they get their benefits – a kind of “border security.”

The border is not secure.

This is a sort of confusing news item, given that people hear “National Guard” and think it is about preventing people from entering. But it’s the reverse.
