Just a couple of weeks ago, the governors of Texas and Arizona asked for help in managing the border crisis created by President Joe Biden’s administration.
“Given the staggering number of violations now occurring in Texas and Arizona, additional manpower is needed from any state that can spare it. With your help, we can apprehend more of these perpetrators of state and federal crimes, before they can cause problems in your state,” they said.
Already, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has committed several law enforcement officials to the cause.
And now, Pete Ricketts, the governor of Nebraska, has agreed to do the same.
“Nebraska is stepping up to help Texas respond to the ongoing crisis on their border with Mexico,” he said over the weekend. “The disastrous policies of the Biden-Harris Administration created an immigration crisis on the border. 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.”
