Wednesday, May 31, 2023 – Today, in response to Texas’ request for assistance due to the crisis at our southern border, Virginia Governor Glenn Younkin announced that he will be deploying 100 Virginia National Guard troops to the state. U.S. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) released the following statement:
“Our country is currently in crisis due to the Biden Administration’s inability to control our southern border. Here in Virginia, we too feel the effects of the Administration’s flawed open border polices. Fentanyl smuggled over our southern border has devastated communities across the Commonwealth and continues to do so every day.
“I applaud Governor Youngkin’s decision to deploy 100 Virginia National Guard troops to Texas in an effort to secure our southern border, combat human trafficking, and stem the flow of deadly fentanyl pouring into our country.”
