Governor Still Sending Troops to Mexican Border

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Governor Phil Bryant won’t bring Mississippi National Guard troops back from the Mexican border. Democrat lawmakers are asking governors to recall or not send troops and on Friday the state’s Legislative Black Caucus urged Bryant to recall Mississippi guardsmen, saying President Donald Trump’s executive order only pauses the separation of families. Last month Bryant sent 25 guard members to the border along with three helicopters to provide aerial surveillance support. Maryland’s Republican governor has called back troops and Massachusetts’ Republican governor has decided not to send troops to the border.

    I have no problem with guardsmen, reservesist or active duty military being sent to defend our borders. It is very much needed. Your article appears to take the side of the demon-crats. Why not report both sides instead of just one.
