Nebraska’s authorities will send troops to the U.S.–Mexico border to strengthen the law enforcement in the fragile fragment of the state border with Mexico.
Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts has shared plans to send about two dozen state troopers to Texas for at least two weeks. Later this month, the troopers will head in the southern direction to help patrol the nation’s border with Mexico.
On June 19, Gov Ricketts confirmed that the troopers will spend up to 16 days providing law enforcement assistance to the Texas Department of Public Safety. In recent weeks, Nebraska Governo has been giving speeches around the state condemning President Biden’s conservation plan that calls for preserving 30% of the nation’s land and water by the year 2030.
In his address regarding assistance to Texas, Nebraska Governor said he was responding to a request for aid from Governor Greg Abbott in accordance with a preexisting mutual aid agreement that is normally activated in times of emergencies.
Ricketts has criticized the Biden administration’s approach to border security and several other policies, Omaha World-Herald reported.
