New bill could allow Florida State Guard be sent to Texas to help with the border, lawmaker says

A bill seeking to revise certain aspects of the Florida State Guard contains a provision that would allow for the agency to operate outside of the state’s borders

Besides the expansion of potential geographical space to cover, the bill provides the state guard the same legal protections and immunities that the National Guard receives

Giallombardo explained that in order for the state guard to operate outside of Florida, other states that they occupy would have to sign off on a mutual agreement

Rep. Dan Daley, D-Coral Springs, questioned if the guard could then be sent to the US-Mexico border if a border state, such as Texas, had an agreement with Florida

Giallombardo responded, saying that “yes,” that could in fact happen
