Gov. Charlie Baker canceled his plan to send MA National Guard members and equipment to the southwestern U.S. border. He called the separating illegal children from their parents “inhumane.”
Baker recently announced that he would send a UH-72 Lakota helicopter and two military analysts to pilot the chopper to the southwestern border by the end of the month to help combat illegals crossing the border and drug trafficking.
"Governor Baker directed the National Guard not to send any assets or personnel to the Southwest border today because the federal government's current actions are resulting in the inhumane treatment of children." Baker Communications Director Lizzy Guyton said in a statement.
