Noem Visiting SD National Guard Troops In Texas

     South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is in McAllen, Texas, today visiting the National Guard troops she deployed to the U.S. border with Mexico at the request of Texas Gov Rick Perry.

      The Republican governor faced fierce scrutiny for funding the National Guard deployment with a $1 million donation from a Republican donor.

     Noem says she just wants to check in on the roughly 50 National Guard members who volunteered for a 30-day deployment, but she’s also expected to criticize President Joe Biden’s border policies and push for hard-line immigration measures
