Arizona’s Doug Ducey joined nine other Republican governors Wednesday in southern Texas to outline a 10-point border security plan they want the Biden administration to implement.

“We’re not going to sit around while Joe Biden refuses to act,” Ducey said during a press conference in Mission, Texas, led by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

“The White House press secretary last the week told the Republican governors to be a part of the solution. We’ve tried to meet with the president and be a part of the solution, but he refuses. Even worse, he ignores.”

Wednesday’s border trip came 16 days after 25 GOP governors sent Biden a letter requesting a meeting to work on finding solutions to the border situation.

Georgia’s Brian Kemp, Idaho’s Brad Little, Iowa’s Kim Reynolds, Montana’s Greg Gianforte, Nebraska’s Pete Ricketts, Ohio’s Mike DeWine, Oklahoma’s Kevin Stitt and Wyoming’s Mark Gordon joined Abbott and Ducey in Texas on Wednesday.

Before the press conference at a park on the Rio Grande, a river that separates a stretch of Texas and Mexico, the governors received a briefing from Texas Department of Public Safety Commissioner Steve McCraw and National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd.

Their 10-point plan includes calls for more federal resources, diplomacy with Central American countries, and border wall construction.
