States Launch ‘Border Strike Force’
The federal government failed to enforce the law at the border and the states are standing up. Their unity might finally bring about change.
From The Center Square. President Joe Biden has faced heavy criticism over the surge in illegal immigration since he took office, and now a coalition of states has formed to challenge the president on the issue.

“What happens at our nation’s Southern Border impacts every single community in America,” said Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, who recently joined the coalition. “While President Biden largely ignores my colleagues and my proposals to secure our border and protect our communities, we are going to continue to be proactive in addressing these pressing issues. … Our ultimate goal is to 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.”
The move comes after the Biden administration’s decision to lift Title 42, a Trump-era immigration rule that allowed border agents to more easily expel illegal immigrants to prevent the spread of COVID-19 into the U.S….
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has acknowledged there will be an increase in illegal immigration because of the removal of Title 42.
The states signed on so far include Idaho, Arizona, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming….
