Arizona, Texas ask other states to send law enforcement to fill federal void at border

rizona Gov Doug Ducey and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ask asking other states to send police officers to aid their law enforcement agencies and federal immigration officials in policing the nation's southern border.

In a letter last week, Ducey and Abbott wrote the surge in immigration from Mexico and Central American states is at a "crisis" level and they need more bodies to aid in patrolling.

"Texas and Arizona have stepped up to secure the border in the federal government's absence, and now the Emergency Management Assistance Compact gives your State a chance to stand strong with us," the letter read.

Ducey has criticized President Joe Biden for creating a crisis-level surge in immigration at the border. The White House has yet to release a statement in reaction to the letter.
