26 Republican Governors Mobilize Against Migration Chaos at Border

A group of 26 Republican governors joined forces to address the chaotic border policies of the Biden administration that led to an unprecedented crisis along the U.S. border with Mexico. The governors, led by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey join together to disrupt and dismantle transnational criminal organizations in order to stop the flow of dangerous drugs and combat human smuggling.

“Due to President Biden’s disastrous border policies, dangerous transnational criminal organizations continue flooding our communities with drugs while reaping billions of dollars from human smuggling and causing a record-breaking number of apprehensions at the Southern Border,” the 26 Republicans wrote in a pact creating the American Governors’ Border Strike Force.

“By partnering across state lines, governors can serve as a force multiplier to target cartels and criminal networks financially and operationally. Together, governors will improve public safety, protect victims from horrific crimes, reduce the amount of drugs in our communities, and alleviate the humanitarian crisis at the Southern Border,” they added.

“If Biden will not come to the border, we’re sending the border to Biden,” Governor Abbott told Fox News on Tuesday. “Border security has always been a federal government responsibility — until the Biden administration.”

Governor Abbott called the action by the 26 governors “an indictment on the Biden administration and its failure to do its fundamental job of national security in securing our border.”

Governor Ducey said the majority of American governors are stepping up to do what the Biden administration refuses to do.

“The federal government is derelict in its duty,” the Arizona governor added. “It’s not supporting the men and women of law enforcement at the city level, the state level, or the county level.”

“Lifting Title 42 is a mistake,” Ducey stated. “DHS’s own numbers say there will be 18,000 people a day additional streaming over the border.”

The pact signed by the 26 governors says the Border Strike Force will coordinate efforts between the states to:

Partner at the state fusion center level to disrupt and dismantle cartels:

  • Share criminal justice information to improve investigations in the border region and nationwide, especially in communities adjacent to or crossing state boundaries.
  • Coordinate and improve interdiction on interstates to combat drug trafficking and human smuggling.
  • Co-locate intelligence analysts in border states to improve collaboration, real time response, intelligence sharing, and analysis connected to border security.
  • Assist border states with supplemental staff and resources at state fusion centers, such as on rotation assignments, to share information obtained both on the border and in other states.
  • Send law enforcement to train in border states to detect, track, and curb border-related crime.

Focus state law enforcement efforts to disrupt and dismantle cartels:

  • Target cartel finances that fund criminal activity in the border regions to seize the tools used to assist the cartels.
  • Monitor cybersecurity issues that may increase vulnerability along the Southern Border, such as criminal networks that operate on social media to recruit traffickers.
  • Review state criminal statutes regarding human trafficking, drug trafficking, and transnational criminal organizations to ensure the laws deter, disrupt, and dismantle criminal activity.
  • Review state criminal justice statistics and information to determine crimes that can be traced to the Southern Border.
  • Develop interstate procedures to fill any identified gaps or identified inconsistencies in existing plans to address border crime.

The Memorandum of Understanding (attached below) lays out additional coordination efforts and action items for the states’ response to the Biden border crisis.
