Just heard on our local news that the North Dakota NG. are heading to the southern border?

Maybe for a YEAR? Also saw in the Wyoming news that their Gov. will get a first hand look at the Border Crisis? What the fuck is going on? The QTHUGS gotta be pulling some shit this weekend? ANYBODY know what this is all about? ( I'm sure THIS is all to make Joe look bad no doubt)

the Canadians invade, and force them to adopt the metric system and accept universal healthcare. That’ll show them.

State NGs don't have any jurisdiction there. Did Abbott request them to come and protect Texas?

Definitely a performance.

There is not a thing for them to do around here except maybe hang out. Our border is not a problem. I'm the third house from the border and our crime rate is about zero. I was in Juarez 2 weeks ago and the same thing there. El Paso has one of the lowest crime rates in the US, if not the lowest and the Customs and Border Patrol officers have a lot of specific training for the job that NG don't have like tracking skills and Spanish fluency. It's just a way of firing up the racist base for the next election. Our governor sent a whole bunch of Texas State Troopers here a few weeks ago. They stood around for a couple of days doing nothing, collected their OT pay and left.

the ND Governor simply approved of.

Some military-hating Republican governors will meet in Texas to criticize President Biden. Screw them.

I think it’s a valid mission. It’s the governors who spin it badly.
