LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KOLO) – The Nevada GOP has issued a statement of support for Texas over its decision to ignore a Supreme Court ruling allowing federal agents to cut razor wire set up by Texas along the southern border.
They praised Texas Governor Greg Abbott for his “steadfast commitment to defend the southern border from invasion”, and that he “recognized the crucial need to protect borders from threats.”
On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a 5-4 ruling that Border Patrol agents could resume cutting razor wire along the border.
Their statement, in full, can be read below:
“The Nevada Republican Party proudly declares its unwavering support for the State of Texas and Governor Greg Abbott in their steadfast commitment to defend the Southern border from invasion. Recognizing the crucial need to protect borders from threats, both foreign and domestic. Nevada Republicans stand shoulder to shoulder with Texas in this critical endeavor.
In recent times, the challenges faced by the State of Texas in securing its Southern border have become increasingly apparent. Governor Greg Abbott has taken bold and decisive action to address these challenges head-on, highlighting the importance of safeguarding the state and its residents from any potential harm.
The Nevada Republican Party firmly believes in the fundamental right of states to defend their borders and protect the safety and well-being of their Citizens. Texas, as a sovereign state, deserves the autonomy to enact measures necessary to ensure the security of its borders against external threats.
Nevada Republicans commend Governor Greg Abbott for his leadership and proactive stance in addressing border security concerns. The Party recognizes the significant impact that a secure border has on the overall safety, economic stability, and prosperity of the state.
The Nevada Republican Party urges other states to join with Texas, fostering a united front in the defense of our Nation’s borders.”
