Today, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) confirmed all the media buzz and announced that the state of Florida will be deploying law enforcement officers at the Southern Border in Texas.
Last week, Governor Ron DeSantis answered the call for support and reinforcements following a letter from Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona requesting immediate assistance assist with the security crisis overwhelming law enforcement at the southern border.
The Florida Division of Emergency Management is coordinating the deployment of law enforcement officers under the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC). The EMAC is a national mutual aid system that allows states to share resources from all disciplines, protect personnel who deploy, and be reimbursed for mission-related costs.
DeSantis moved to send units to Texas as a response to the ongoing border crisis that is finally being addressed by the Biden-Harris Administration (after 90 days) VP Harris (D) will finally be heading to El Paso, TX. Which has also been heavily scrutinized since the border crisis is not located in the region she is attending.
