BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Governor Kay Ivey has signed on to a letter with 25 other governors to President Biden urging action at the Southern Border and requesting a meeting within 15 days.

Sunday the U.S. flew Haitians camped in a Texas border town back to their homeland and tried blocking others from crossing the border from Mexico.

More than 320 migrants arrived in Port-au-Prince on three flights, and Haiti said six flights were expected Tuesday. In all, U.S. authorities moved to expel many of the more 12,000 migrants camped around a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, after crossing from Ciudad Acuña, Mexico.

Governor Ivey issued the following statement:

“There is a crisis at the southern border, plain and simple. My fellow governors and I have sent state resources, yet we have seen no action from the Biden-Harris Administration. National security is critical, and make no mistake, eight months of unenforced borders places us all at risk. It is past time we address the border crisis.”
