This Governor Will Make You Proud: "We Stand Ready to Support National Security"
Alaska’s governor has said the National Guard troops of his state are ready if President Donald Trump needs them to secure America’s Southern Border.
“Today I notified the White House that Alaska and our National Guard — if called upon — stand ready to support the national security crisis on the U.S. southern border,” Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy said, according to the Juneau Empire.

Trump’s defining battle against the Beltway to fortify our borders—by concrete, steel, increased manpower, electronic surveillance, all of it—isn’t just about fulfilling a campaign promise. The wall is a necessary monument to sovereignty in a nation clogged with billions of dollars of worthless political monuments to Me, Me, Me.
