MADISON – Governor Tony Evers issued Executive Order #13 Monday relating to withdrawing the Wisconsin National Guard from assisting at the southwest border.

Approximately 112 Wisconsin National Guard Soldiers and Airmen are currently serving in Arizona, where they have been deployed to assist with border security.

tony_evers“Keeping all of our borders safe and crime-free, and protecting immigrants who seek asylum at our borders, many of whom are women and children, is the responsibility of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol,” Gov. Evers said. “There is simply not ample evidence to support the president’s contention that there exists a national security crisis at our southwestern border. Therefore, there is no justification for the ongoing presence of Wisconsin National Guard personnel at the border. I cannot support keeping our brave service men and women away from their families without a clear need or purpose that would actively benefit the people of Wisconsin or our nation.”

A copy of Executive Order #13 is available here.
