BOISE, Idaho — Governor Brad Little and nine other governors are headed south to the border. The group of state leaders will witness first-hand the crisis playing out on Wednesday.

They will share their own proposed solutions and once again call on the Biden Administration to secure the border immediately. Little plans to take a boat tour of the Rio Grande River with Texas Department of Public Safety agents, according to a news release from the governor's office.

The following are the governors that will be in attendance:

  • Texas Governor Greg Abbott
  • Arizona Governor Doug Ducey
  • Idaho Governor Brad Little
  • Montana Governor Greg Gianforte
  • Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon
  • Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds
  • Georgia Governor Brian Kemp
  • Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts
  • Ohio Governor Mike DeWine
  • Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt

Earlier this year, Little sent a specialized team of Idaho State Police troopers to the border to help with intelligence gathering and investigative work related to drug interdiction at the border.

The governor's office says more information about the border trip and solutions proposed to address the crisis will be sent out on Thursday.
