GOP Governors all across the country continue to answer the call of Texas Governor Greg Abbott; Abbott asked for assistance securing the border last month.
This time, it’s Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt.
“Republican governors are stepping up to the plate when President Biden won’t. Today, I committed to send OK National Guardsmen to the border to clean up Biden’s crisis,” he tweeted.

Oklahoma joins Iowa, Virginia, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and West Virginia in sending troops to Texas.
“As Governor, the decision to deploy members of the National Guard is not one I take lightly and, as the parent of a deployed soldier, I am acutely aware of the sacrifices made by the brave men and women of our National Guard and their families during deployment. However, I believe it is in the best interest of Oklahoma and the nation to take decisive action to address the federal government’s utter failure to secure our southern border,” Stitt said in his announcement.
“Republican governors continue to step up to the plate when President Biden refuses to lead; and by deploying our brave National Guard Troops, we’re sending a strong message that we remain dedicated to defending our borders and upholding law and order in our nation,” Stitt said.
