Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp says he will aid Texas governor’s border standoff with Biden

Associated Press

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp says he will send more of his state’s National Guard soldiers to aid Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s effort to control illegal crossings on the U.S.-Mexico border. The move comes as fellow Republican Abbott pursues a showdown with the Biden administration over immigration enforcement. Kemp said Tuesday he would send a guard team to build a command post for Texas officials. The modest announcement followed two days of sharply partisan debate as Georgia’s Republican-led legislature passed resolutions condemning President Joe Biden’s border policy. It’s an election year not only for president, but for all of Georgia’s 236 legislative seats as well.
