Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody requested Thursday states participate in sending manpower to protect the Texas border from the massive influx of illegal immigrants.

Florida is the first state to step up and say, look, we are sending folks to help control this chaos that is created solely due to the actions or inaction of the Biden administration.”
