Governor Walker Welcomes President Trump’s Aggressive Actions to Secure America’s Southern Border
Illegal flow of drugs across southern border is a threat to Wisconsin
“Let me be clear: the southern border of the United States of America is not secure,” said Governor Walker. “One of the most fundamental responsibilities of our federal government is to protect our borders and shores. Sadly, through several administrations, the federal government has failed in this fundamental responsibility.
“Over the years, I have spoken with many state and federal leaders about border security, including several governors from southern border states. They explained the concerns they have about the many individuals crossing the border who they believe are connected to terrorist organizations or to areas of the world that harbor members of these organizations. They spoke of the volume of illegal drugs, human trafficking, and the movement of illegal firearms into our country.”
“As Governor, I want to ensure the safety of all of our citizens, and I want to reduce access to illegal drugs as part of a comprehensive strategy in dealing with opioid and illegal drug addiction,” Governor Walker continued. “Therefore, I welcome President Donald Trump’s aggressive actions to secure our nation’s southern border.”
