Gov. Bill Lee To Send Tennessee National Guard Troops To Combat

  • Governor Bill Lee (R-TN)  authorized Thursday the deployment of 100 Tennessee National Guard troops to help secure the southern border in the wake of record-level crossings and illegal entries into the United States.
  • Lee joins other Republican governors, like Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, in sending help to Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who has called on the Biden administration to take stronger measures to stop the flood of people crossing into the U.S. from Mexico.
  • “America continues to face an unprecedented border crisis that threatens our nation’s security and the safety of Tennesseans,” Lee said in a statement obtained by The Daily Wire.
