Governor Stitt Among Republican Group Visiting US Border With Mexico

Wednesday, October 6th 2021, 10:50 am

Governor Kevin Stitt is at the US-Mexico border with a group of Republican Governors.

The Governor's office says the purpose of the trip is to see the situation on the border first-hand and to get a briefing from the Texas Department of Public Safety. It comes two weeks after more than half of the Governors in the United State sent a letter to President Biden asking for a meeting to discuss the border.

It's something they are calling a national security crisis because of what they call "unenforced borders." The Governor will be taking a boat tour of the Rio Grande Wednesday afternoon.
