Earlier this month, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem announced that she would deploy 50 of South Dakota’s National Guard troops to the southern border. This deployment will be funded by private donors, according to an Axios report.
Noem declared, “I’m officially announcing up to 50 National Guard troops to Texas to help secure our border.” She added that the Biden-Harris administration has overlooked the uncomfortable truth that a country that can’t secure its border is no longer a sovereign country. “We shouldn’t be making our own communities vulnerable by sending police to fix Biden’s border crisis,” Noem added.
