So a deep pocket GOP donor is paying for the SDNG to “deploy” to Texas. Yes there are issues at the border. BUT the NG cannot perform ANY LE duties, only support missions for CBP.
Questions arise. 1) Did the Governor of Texas request assistance from other states? I did not see where he did, but I may have missed it. And if he did request it, why not to the administration?
2) Did Governor Noem go in search of deep pockets to pay for this deployment?
3) What is the mission going to be? As the last time the NG was sent to the border, they were only doing support as allowed by law.
4) What if Jeff Bezos decided he needed NG support at an Amazon warehouse in the name of “national security” and made a big donation to the state of Virginia in order to secure a “deployment” to an Alabama warehouse?
This comes off as a paid army doing the bidding of a private citizen.
