Idaho to help secure U.S.-Mexico border because Biden won’t

July 7, 2021

Last week I announced my plan to send Idaho State Police (ISP) troopers to Arizona to help secure the United States-Mexico border and curb the flow of illegal drugs into Idaho due to failed Biden-Harris immigration policies.
The crisis at the Unites States-Mexico border and the alarming bump in illegal drug activity are direct results of failed polices of the Biden-Harris administration that harm the people of Idaho. Drug seizures for meth, fentanyl, and heroin have exploded since Biden took office and we’ve seen the highest number of illegal crossings this year in 21 years. Biden reversed numerous Trump policies that kept the American people safer, and now our nation’s governors must step up to protect Americans because the Biden-Harris administration won’t. The State of Idaho proudly stands with our fellow Americans along the United States-Mexico border.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey sent a letter to the nation’s governors in June pleading for extra manpower through other states’ law enforcement agencies to help secure the border. I quickly committed to supporting their efforts.
Idaho will send a specialized team of five ISP troopers on a 21-day mission commencing July 6 to assist Arizona Department of Public Safety with intelligence gathering and investigative work related to drug interdiction at the border. The specialized team of ISP troopers will act as a “force multiplier” to augment Arizona’s drug interdiction team.
Idaho will continue to evaluate our resources and the border states’ needs to determine if we can do even more to help in the fight to protect Americans against the Biden-Harris inaction.
