Joe Biden Caves, Asks Kristi Noem To Send More South Dakota National Guard Troops To Help Secure Border

Joe Biden’s administration just caved and asked South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem for more National Guard troops to help secure the southern border. Noem was heavily criticized by the left and the media for initially sending 50 South Dakota guard members to the border and one wonders if the media will apologize to her.

Noem said the request for South Dakota guard members came from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Guard Bureau.  Close to 3,000 Guard members from several states are involved in this federal mission.

Noem said she will be sending an additional 125 members of the South Dakota National Guard to the border between the U.S. and Mexico to help federal immigration authorities deal with the migrant surge and took a veiled swipe at Joe and Kamala in the process saying: “I am hopeful that this mission indicates the Biden Administration is waking up to the devastating situation at the border.”

Noem sent 50 troops to Texas to help with the border surge earlier and was attacked by the media and the Dems mainly over a report that a Tennessee billionaire funded the deployment.  

“Our South Dakota National Guard is the very best in the country, and they are prepared for the sustained response the national security crisis at our southern border requires,” Noem said.

“I am hopeful that this mission indicates the Biden Administration is waking up to the devastating situation at the border.”

“The border is a national security crisis that requires the kind of sustained response only the National Guard can provide.”

“We should not be making our own communities less safe by sending our police or Highway Patrol to fix a long-term problem President Biden’s Administration seems unable or unwilling to solve.”

Noem issued a press release announcing the move:

Today, Governor Kristi Noem approved the deployment of approximately 125 members of the South Dakota National Guard to the southern border between the United States and Mexico. The deployment will take place later this year at the request of the federal government.

“Our South Dakota National Guard is the very best in the country, and they are prepared for the sustained response the national security crisis at our southern border requires,” said Governor Kristi Noem.

“I am hopeful that this mission indicates the Biden Administration is waking up to the devastating situation at the border.”

The soldiers are members of the South Dakota National Guard’s 1742nd Transportation Company, stationed in Sioux Falls and Flandreau.

These soldiers will be deployed for up to nine to twelve months and will be in a federal pay status.

This deployment is in addition to the state active duty deployment that Governor Noem announced last week.

The guard members will provide non-law enforcement support to U.S. customs agents as part of the government’s Southwest Border mission.

The Southwest Border mission involves security along the Mexican border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

The request for South Dakota guard members came from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Guard Bureau. About 3,000 Guard members from several states are involved in this federal mission.

For security reasons, additional information about the guard members’ duties will not be provided.
