GOP House Rep’s Unit Deployed To Mexican Border

Politico reports:

Rep. Adam Kinzinger was deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border earlier this week with his Air National Guard unit, his office announced on Wednesday evening.

“The Congressman is humbled to serve his IL-16 community here in the People’s House and equally proud to serve as a reconnaissance pilot in the Air National Guard,” Kinzinger’s communications director, Maura Gillespie, said in a statement.

Kinzinger won reelection to his fourth term in November and is frequently featured on cable TV to offer his views on national security matters. The Illinois Republican is a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard.
