Sen. Marshall plans to take Sheriffs to southern Texas border

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kansas, plans to go to the southern U.S. border with 5 Kansas sheriffs Thursday, May 19.

Amid the pending expiration of Title 42, Marshall’s business says the tour will incorporate briefings and conferences with border patrol officers with the condition of Texas and the Dept. of Homeland Stability. Johnson Co. Sheriff Calvin Hayden, Shawnee Co. Sheriff Brian Hill, Saline Co. Sheriff Roger Soldan, Franklin Co. Sheriff Jeff Richards, and Jackson Co. Sheriff Tim Morse were being invited to journey with Marshall.

According to Marshall’s business office, far more than 12,000 lbs. of fentanyl-associated substances have been seized at the southern border about the past 14 months.

“It is only unacceptable – in point, it is a dereliction of obligation – that Joe Biden carries on to manage his open up borders policies that have in turn enabled criminals to provide fentanyl into our point out and poison Kansans at history fees. I glance ahead to traveling down to the southern border with these heroic sheriffs so we can keep on to convey recognition and alternatives to the crisis that has turned Kansas into a border state,” Marshall claimed. “The crisis at our southern border is our largest, most fast countrywide stability risk. With fentanyl pouring throughout the border, this has turned into a public wellness crisis as effectively.”

Marshall named fentanyl “the deadliest drug our region has at any time viewed.” He stated a person teaspoon could destroy 1000’s of men and women.
