Last month, the Supreme Court shocked the nation when it ruled against Texas. Even though millions of illegal aliens have swarmed the border, the court allowed the Biden administration to remove barriers put up by the state.
This has only increased tensions between Texas and the federal government. Gov. Abbott has vowed to continue putting up wire and other barriers to defend his state.
Numerous Republican governors spoke out to defend Texas. Some vowed to send more razor wire to protect the border from invasion. And now, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis appears to be defying the Supreme Court by sending even more.
From The Post Millennial:
On Thursday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that he would be providing state troops to assist Texas in its quest to secure the southern border.
The members of the Florida State Guard and Florida National Guard will make their way down to the Lone Star state to help erect barriers.
Florida has been assisting at the southern border since 2021, and we are sending more support from both the @FLStateGuard & up to one battalion of @FLGuard. Their mission will be to assist Texas in erecting barriers at the border to stop the invasion of illegal aliens.

Gov. DeSantis announced he is sending troops to help Texas in its fight to defend the border. Florida had previously sent officers and aid to Texas. But in light of the recent Supreme Court decision, this move is even more critical.
The Florida State Guard and Florida National Guard troops will be helping Texas erect more barriers along the Mexico-Texas border. This is in direct defiance to the court, which granted Biden permission to cut razer wire down, to help migrants illegally enter the country.
Reports appear to show that the barriers put up by Texas, including razor wire, have discouraged illegal entry. At one point, migrants had moved to Arizona or California to enter illegally, despite Texas having the largest border.
Texas has continued to put up barriers to secure the border from the millions of migrants that have been entering. Smugglers, traffickers, and drug cartels have been exploiting Biden’s unusual reluctance to uphold immigration law, to cross over the border.
The crisis has left border communities in disarray. Millions of illegal aliens have overwhelmed border states. Hundreds of thousands are filling Northern cities, leaving mayors at a loss for what to do.
It is unknown why the Supreme Court would seemingly turn a blind eye to this crisis. But it’s clear the fight is far from over.
- Florida is sending state and national guardsmen to help Texas secure the border.
- The troops will aid the Lone Star State in erecting barriers to prevent illegal entry.
- This comes after the Supreme Court allowed the Biden administration to cut down Texas’s razor wire.
