Sinema, Kelly ask Biden for federal reimbursement for Ducey's deployment of National Guard troops at

A day after Gov. Doug Ducey announced he was sending 250 National Guard troops to the border, senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., wrote to President Joe Biden asking the federal government to reimburse the state for the action.

The Arizona Democrats, who supported the Republican governor’s decision to dispatch more guards, also asked Biden to increase the number of Homeland Security personnel to help process migrants and secure the border.

Ducey issued a declaration of emergency, and his office said the state would provide up to $25 million in initial funding for the additional guards.

“There is a crisis at the southern border,” the senators’ letter said. “From recent conversations with local community leaders, law enforcement, and local Department of Homeland Security officials, it’s clear that their resources, staffing and capabilities are strained … This need for a secure and orderly process at the U.S. southern border should not fall on the state of Arizona or Arizona border communities.”

2. You want what, Senator...?

Biden: Millions to cover Arizona financially? So Arizonans don’t have to pay for a deployment by Arizona’s Republican Gov. who thinks I stole an election? I get that right...?

Could be. But do you know what I WANT FROM YOU, SENATOR? There’s this Senate rule...!
