Texas is receiving aid at the border from its neighboring state, Florida, through means of law enforcement officers and resources to help fight the current Biden border crisis.
On Tuesday, Florida Governor and potential Presidential candidate Ron DeSantis, announced that he will be deploying officers, drones and resources to help Texas with the ongoing crisis at the border.
“The impacts of Biden’s Border Crisis are felt by communities across the nation, and the federal government’s abdication of duty undermines the sovereignty of our country and the rule of law,” said DeSantis. “At my direction, state agencies including law enforcement and the Florida National Guard are being deployed to Texas, with assets including personnel, boats and planes. While Biden ignores the crisis he created, Florida stands ready to help Texas respond to this crisis.”
A source with the Department of Homeland Security, who spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution, told this reporter it is “a shame that the governors of the states are having to step up and do what the federal government will not.”
“Lifting Title 42 has created a negative pressure which is bringing in Nicaraguans in massive numbers, and the Chinese numbers have exploded. We never used to see Chinese family Units. Now it’s common.”
The DHS source said that there is a very serious concern about the number of “single military age males” that are entering the country without families and there are not sufficient security background screenings.
“If even 1% of them are coming in as future combatants, then we are in for a bad future,” the source stated.
The DHS source noted that more than 100 terrorists have already been intercepted at the border and warned that many more may have already entered without being captured.
It’s like a “scene in the movie Red Dawn,” but instead of an adversary parachuting into the nation under an attack the illegal migrants only had to “wait until Biden was elected and they could walk across the border.”
According to reports from Fox News, the Florida Governor’s office has over “1,100 assets and resources available to assist.” The report listed that as of Tuesday there are, “101 Highway Patrol personnel, 200 Department of Law Enforcement officers, 800 National Guard soldiers, emergency management personnel, 17 unmanned drones and 10 vessels, including airboats.”
Florida is using, the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) to provide these resources to Texas. According to EMAC’s website, members, which include all 50 states, Washington D.C, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands “can share resources from all disciplines, protect personnel who deploy, and be reimbursed for mission-related costs.”
This is not the first time DeSantis has assisted Texas. In 2021, DeSantis assisted Texas and Arizona with support by means of law enforcement to help secure the southern border.

Biden Administration Proposes Rule to Fortify Federal Bureaucracy Against Republican Presidency
In a strategic move, the Biden administration has unveiled a proposed rule aimed at reinforcing the left-leaning federal bureaucracy, potentially hindering future conservative policy implementations by Republican presidents. This move has raised concerns about the efficacy of democratic elections when a deep-seated bureaucracy remains largely unchanged, regardless of electoral outcomes.
Key points of the situation include:
Presidential Appointees vs. Career Bureaucrats: Of the 2.2 million federal civil workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The vast majority, made up of career bureaucrats, continue in their roles from one administration to the next. This continuity is facilitated by rules that make it exceedingly difficult to discipline or replace them, resulting in a bureaucracy that tends to lean left politically.
Union Political Affiliation: A striking 95% of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates support Democrats, according to Open Secrets, with only 5% favoring Republicans. This significant political skew among federal workers raises questions about the potential for political bias in the execution of government policies.
Obstructionism and Challenges for GOP Presidents: Some career bureaucrats have been accused of obstructing Republican presidents’ agendas, leading to policy delays and challenges. For example, during the Trump administration, career lawyers in the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division declined to challenge Yale University’s discrimination against Asian American applicants, prompting Trump to seek legal counsel from other divisions. The case was subsequently dropped when Joe Biden took office.
Biden’s Countermeasures: President Biden has taken steps to protect the bureaucracy’s status quo. In October 2020, Trump issued an executive order aiming to reclassify federal workers who make policy as at-will employees, but Biden canceled it upon taking office.
Proposed Rule and Congressional Actions: The rule unveiled by the Biden administration seeks to further impede a president’s ability to reinstate Trump’s order. Additionally, some Democrats in Congress are pushing to eliminate the president’s authority to reclassify jobs entirely. This has been referred to as an attempt to “Trump-proof the federal workforce.”
Republican Candidates’ Pledge: GOP candidates such as President Donald J Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis have pledged to address this issue. According to reports from Fox News, Ramaswamy has gone further, advocating for the elimination of half or more of civil service positions, emphasizing the need for accountability.
Debate on the Merit of the Civil Service: While Democrats and their media allies argue that civil service protects merit over patronage, critics contend that the system has evolved into a form of job security for federal workers with minimal accountability. Federal employees often receive higher salaries and more substantial benefits than their private-sector counterparts.
In summary, the Biden administration’s proposed rule and broader actions to protect the federal bureaucracy have sparked a debate over the role of career bureaucrats in shaping government policy.
Republican candidates are vowing to address these concerns, highlighting the need for accountability and ensuring that government agencies work in alignment with the elected president’s agenda. This ongoing debate raises important questions about the relationship between the bureaucracy and the democratic process in the United States.
