In April 1861, President Lincoln called for 75,000 state militia forces to end the rebellion by seceding Southern states. Northern states were more than happy to send their young men off to war and teach those rebelling slavers a lesson.
With illegals crossing into border states in large numbers and the Biden administration limited to making things good and free for the illegals, Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey asked for help from other states. Governors of Florida, Iowa and Nebraska have pledged state law enforcement to assist in securing the border.
At no other time in U.S. history have governors asked other governors for help in what should be a federal matter. But, the federal government has abdicated and abrogated its responsibilities in order to make sure everything looks good and nobody’s feelings get hurt.
