Indiana National Guard Deploys 50 Members to Texas

Fifty members of the Indiana National Guard are heading to Texas to support security efforts along the southern U.S. border. The deployment was requested by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and will begin in mid-March, lasting for a period of ten months. This decision follows a recent visit by Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb to the border, where he met with fellow governors to discuss the situation.

“Whatever the mission – whether it’s supporting a Hoosier community in the face of natural disaster, standing with our allies or against our adversaries overseas, or protecting the border – the soldiers and airmen of the Indiana National Guard are uniquely trained, equipped and capable of mobilizing whenever and wherever we’re called,” said Major General Dale Lyles, the adjutant general of the Indiana National Guard. “We stand ready to support the Texas National Guard in securing the southern border.”

Governor Holcomb took to Twitter today to express his concern about the drug epidemic in Indiana. He emphasized the need to prevent a constant influx of dangerous drugs across the open U.S. border, as it poses a significant risk to the lives of Hoosiers.
