New Hampshire Deploys National Guard After Migrants Sent to Martha’s Vineyard; 4 States Deploy National Guard to US–Mexico Border

New Hampshire deploys National Guard after migrants sent to Martha’s Vineyard:
New Hampshire is deploying two National Guard units to the southern border, weeks after 50 migrants were flown to nearby Martha’s Vineyard by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to highlight border issues.
Gov. Chris Sununu, a Republican like DeSantis, announced that 164 members of the state’s National Guard would be deployed to Texas for a year, where they will assist Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in securing the border.
Their deployment comes three weeks after two planes carrying migrants from Venezuela landed unannounced on the upmarket island of Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.
The flights had been arranged by DeSantis, who wants to highlight problems at the southern border by bringing migrants to liberal areas in states farther north.
All of the migrants had crossed the US border in Texas and are seeking asylum.
Announcing the latest deployment, Sununu said: “New Hampshire is grateful for the heroic men and women of our National Guard. --->READ MORE HERE

4 States Deploy National Guard to US–Mexico Border:
New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Kentucky, and Illinois are deploying several National Guard units to the U.S.–Mexico border.
According to the office of New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, the four states are sending a total of about 500 soldiers to help secure the border. The units will act under the command of the 941st Military Police Battalion, which already has 44 soldiers in place.
An additional 120 soldiers from the 237th Military Police Company will be deployed to set up surveillance sites along the border to block the laundering of drugs, weapons, and money into the United States by Mexican cartels, according to the governor’s statement.
The units will cover a 250-mile stretch where illegal immigrants have been flooding into the United States.
Lt. Col. Carla Raisler, director of public affairs for the Kentucky National Guard, told The Epoch Times that she was surprised Sununu released specific details about the deployment.
“Due to the security concerns of where the soldiers are inside the U.S. border, we don’t generally release information about the units or the size or their movements for security reasons to keep them and their families safe,” Raisler said. --->READ MORE HERE
