Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, has filed two bills to send Oklahoma money and soldiers to the Mexican border.

Senate Bill 1228 would send CARES funds received by the state of Oklahoma to border states to help them build a wall along the southern border.

Senate Bill 1231 would empower the governor to send Oklahoma National Guard members to border states guard the southern border — not Oklahoma.

Dahm said 2021 had some of the highest recorded border crossings ever, though official number show the surge is still less than half of what it was in 2010, and most of the increase last year was by unaccompanied children.

“Current estimates show record high numbers as millions of lawbreaking foreigners breach our southern border invading the various states,” Dahm said, although facts show the number is significantly less than a million, higher than 2020’s 400,000, but still significantly lower than a million.
