Ahead of a two-day border summit hosted by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, attorneys general from across the country are sharing why border security is important for their states.
One of them, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes, has expressed a sentiment other Republican AGs also share: “All states are border states” and all states are being impacted by President Joe Biden’s open border policies.
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, who’s attending the summit, told The Center Square, “The Biden administration’s many failures may have pushed the crisis at the southern border out of the headlines at liberal media outlets, but it’s far from over.
“President Biden’s failure to secure the border is harming Montana communities. Fentanyl and meth continue to flood across the border, making their way to our state, and bringing crime and death with them,” Knudsen added. “I’m grateful that Attorney General Paxton is hosting this summit and giving attorneys general the opportunity to see the crisis firsthand.”
Knudsen sued the administration with Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost and Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich last year.
