Kristi Noem Will Be Sending National Guard To The Southern Border

When it comes to issues regarding the immigration crisis at the southern border, the national government has become somewhat unreliable in providing solutions. After all, this present administration is to blame for the sudden influx of illegal immigrants into American territory. Because of president Biden’s reversal of policies and softening stance towards the border, matched with vice-president Harris’ continued lack of action, we can’t expect these problems to dissolve soon.

That is why we cannot blame if some of our Republican leaders are taking matters into their hands, even if that means they had to sacrifice their time and resources. Even our former president Donald Trump, who should be enjoying his life as a private citizen, was compelled to do his part to turn things around by visiting the border in the south.

Recently, South Dakota governor Kristi Noem pushed the limits by using funds provided by a Tennessee-based non-profit organization to send 50 national guard forces to the south, in support of Texas governor Gregg Abbott’s request for additional troops to provide more security in his domain. 

“The Biden administration has failed in the most basic duty of the federal government: keeping the American people safe. The border is a national security crisis that requires the kind of sustained response only the national guard can provide,“ she stated.

“My message to Texas is this: help is on the way,” she added.

The decision was not an easy one for Noem, who only elected to respond to her Republican ally’s call for additional manpower. 50 soldiers may not be enough, but we should keep in mind that this is the effort of only one person and she didn’t even ask for the national government’s help in this ultimate display of concern.

The South Dakota National Guard will engage in a 30-60 day mission, thanks to the donors, the Willis and Reba Johnson’s Foundation for making this possible. The foundation has also donated to Donald Trump’s campaign and the National Rifle Association.

As expected, not everyone was appreciative of the effort and criticized Noem’s actions.

““I’ve never heard of anything quite like this before. The military is supposed to be used to further our national security interests and ensure the safety of all citizens, not just the whims of a few private individuals with the means to pay for its services,” said Dan Grazier, a military associate at the Straus Military Reform Project.
