A.G. Rokita urges Gov. Holcomb to send troops to Texas border

American Flag/
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has put a call out to all governors throughout the rest of the United States to send National Guard troops to the southern border to help border patrol contain illegal crossings.
Gov. Eric Holcomb of Indiana is one of those governors that Abbott has reached out to. Though Holcomb has not responded to that particular request, Holcomb has shown support for Gov. Abbott by signing another letter to the White House in support of how Abbott is handling the situation at the southern border.
Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita believes it’s time for Holcomb to follow through on Abbott’s request for troops.
“When you’re not enforcing the border and the federal government is not doing its job, the answer is not to not have the job done, the answer is to solve the problem,” he told WISH-TV. “Why Indiana? Because when there is no border, no border policy, every state is a border state.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has answered Abbott’s request by sending 800 Florida National Guard soldiers, 101 state troopers, and 200 officers from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, a statewide investigative agency.
Idaho’s governor, Brad Little, is also sending a team of state troopers from his state to the border.
Rokita believes that it would be worth it if Holcomb did the same.
“We should be spending some money by spending our guard down to the Texas border,” Rokita said. “Not to do paperwork, but to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Texas Rangers like I did.”
Holcomb’s offices have not said if they too will be sending any law enforcement or National Guard soldiers to the border. There are currently 22 Hoosier National Guard soldiers at the border as part of federal government aid.

Don’t hold you breath waiting for Dopey Prince Eric the Chinless Wonder of Hoosierville to do the right thing to protect Hoosiers from the Fentanyl coming over our southern border on the backs of illegals.

What the hell is the point we can talk all we want but our country’s lost to Communism the people running this country is held bent on changing it to a third world country and I truly believe it’s to get rid of the white people and have these people in here to work cheaper so that the rich can live richer it’s truly what I believe

Long past time to close the border and start sending those illegally here back across it. If you don’t think every state is a border state just go to the local grocery store and listen to all the various languages being spoken there…I’m guessing they are not here with legal documentation. Look at the number of people, middle aged people, being arrested for driving with never having received a license…

So 24 States are answering the call for help with security of our borders in Texas. Indiana is 1.

I stand with Todd Rokita! He fights and fights and fights for us. He just gets crap done. We need to secure our border or there will be no border left to secure!!!! Mexico is attempting to shave off the bottom third of our country and call it home! If we don’t stand against them now, all of us, that’s exactly what is going to happen. Biden (or whomever is controlling him) isn’t helping without the pressure to force him. Think about it. If it was us, we’d want their help. United we stand, divided we fall. It won’t be long before Indiana is the border if this continues.

We are not a country without a secured US border. What other country allows people to just walk in, and say here I am, I’m now a citizen ? Joe Biden is told what to do by his Puppet Masters pulling the strings.
