Idaho answers call to help secure the U.S.-Mexico border

Thursday June 17, 2021

Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little announced today the State of Idaho will support Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey in their efforts to secure the United States-Mexico border and protect the American people because the Biden-Harris Administration continuously fails to do so.

Governors Abbott and Ducey sent a letter to the nation’s Governors requesting extra manpower through other states’ law enforcement agencies to secure the border.

Governor Little provided the following statement in response: 

“The State of Idaho proudly stands with our fellow Americans along the United States-Mexico border and will do what we can to protect the American people – Idahoans – against the damaging consequences of the inaction of the Biden-Harris Administration. Smuggling of drugs and illegal weapons, property destruction, and the daily influx of increasing numbers of illegal immigrants into our country are problems that are getting worse by the day. It is time for our nation’s Governors to do what the federal government won’t – secure the border. Idaho is evaluating our resources, and I will have more to share with Idahoans about our support of this important call to protect our country.”
