Gov. Greg Gianforte met Monday with what his office described as a “team of 10 volunteers” and welcomed them home over breakfast at Shellie’s Country Café in Helena. His staff said he spoke with them about their mission to provide vehicle maintenance and repair. The group returned to Montana on May 12. 

“I am grateful for the hard work and dedication of our soldiers who stepped up to the plate to answer the call for assistance to address the national security crisis that is our open southern border,” Gianforte said in a news release. “With the support of Republican governors, Texas’ efforts have led to a decline in illegal crossings. Action from the Biden administration is long overdue.”
