Governor Ron DeSantis, Attorney General Ashley Moody, and Florida Senate President Wilton Simpson will join Texas Governor Greg Abbott for a border security briefing with state and local officials and law enforcement on Saturday, July 17, in Del Rio, Texas.
The briefing is to be held at the Del Rio Airport in Del Rio Texas at 3:15 pm EST on Saturday.
Resources from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission(FWC) were deployed to Texas including more than 50 state law enforcement officers from FDLE, FHP, and FWC and mission-critical equipment. It is anticipated that personnel will be deployed for 16-day shifts.
Over 20 county sheriff departments have pledged support to provide staffing resources to cover duties typically filled by the deployed officers.
“When the Governors of Texas and Arizona reached out for help, Florida answered the call,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “We are witnessing a catastrophe at the southern border under the Biden Administration. In recent months, we have seen people from the terrorist watch list, known sex offenders, and a flood of fentanyl cross over the border. This is a national security crisis, and we must get it under control.”
We will report on the press briefing and update this story on Saturday.
