Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts announced Saturday that Nebraska State Patrol Troopers will help Texas law enforcement manage the border.
Ricketts said “Nebraska is stepping up to help Texas respond to the ongoing crisis on their border with Mexico.”
“The disastrous policies of the Biden-Harris Administration created an immigration crisis on the border,” he continued. “While the federal government has fallen short in its response, Nebraska is happy to step up to provide assistance to Texas as they work to protect their communities and keep people safe.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a recent statement “President Biden’s open-border policies have paved the way for dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers, and deadly drugs like fentanyl to pour into our communities. Meanwhile, landowners along the border are seeing their property damaged and vandalized on a daily basis while the Biden Administration does nothing to protect them.”
Per the DailyCaller “Abbott’s disaster declaration ordered all federally contracted facilities holding migrants who illegally entered the country to close, the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported. The Biden administration threatened to sue Abbott for discriminating against the federal government if he enforces the closure.”
