Shreveport, LA – According to the state officials, Gov. Landry, with the backing of Senate President Henry, Speaker Devillier, Brig. Gen. Friloux, and GOHSEP Director Thibodeaux, has announced the extension of Operation Lone Star.

State officials also said that this decision follows the initial mission which concluded earlier this month, during which the Louisiana National Guard (LANG) spent approximately $2.2 million of the $3 million previously allocated.

With $800,000 remaining from the initial budget, Texas has submitted a request for additional engineer soldiers. The LANG will fulfill this request and remain in Texas until mid-November, at which point the final contingent of soldiers will begin their return to Louisiana.

Governor Landry expressed his gratitude for the LANG’s efforts, stating, “As the Biden Administration repeatedly ignores the crisis on our southern border, the Louisiana National Guard continues to step up and assist our neighbors in Texas as they work to protect our citizens and secure our country’s border. I am grateful to the Louisiana National Guard for their hard work defending and securing our nation’s border.”

Attached to this announcement are letters from Governor Landry, Speaker DeVillier, and President Henry, underscoring the collective support for the extended mission.

Operation Lone Star represents a critical collaboration between Louisiana and Texas, demonstrating a united front in addressing border security and supporting the safety of all citizens.
