Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced he is sending additional National Guard troops to Texas to help with the ongoing border crisis.

Kemp said 15-20 troops would assist with logistical and mechanical tasks as illegal border crossings hit new monthly records in January according to Customs and Border Protection.

“After record breaking numbers of illegal crossings at the border and seizures of dangerous drugs, weapons and violent criminals. No one complains there’s not a crisis at our Southern Border. And thanks to the failures of the White House. Now every state in the country is a border state,” Kemp said.

CBP reported over 176,000 encounters at the southern border last month, with increases in fentanyl and cocaine seizures.

Kemp argued the border crisis demands a national solution as it impacts all states.

“The crisis on the border is a national problem, and it demands a national solution, but if the Biden administration continues to fail the American people, then we have no choice, no choice but to step in,” Kemp added.

“As a result of seasonal trends, as well as enhanced enforcement efforts by the men and women of CBP and our international partners, southwest border encounters between ports of entry dropped by 50% in January. We continue to experience serious challenges along our border which surpass the capacity of the immigration system,” CBP official Troy Miller said.

“Joe Biden could end the Biden border crisis right now. He has all the authority he needs to reserve his disastrous Far Left open border policies, which have turned every community into a border community and destroyed countless American families — but he refuses,” the House GOP conference stated.

While crossings were lower than December’s record, January numbers still greatly exceeded levels under the Biden administration.

The troop deployment and CBP data came as the House voted to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas for his handling of the border.
