Press Release: Kelly’s Unwillingness to Address Border Crisis

KSGOP Statement on Kelly’s Unwillingness to Address Border Crisis
TOPEKA, KS – The Kansas Republican Party today issued the following statement on Governor Laura Kelly’s unwillingness to call on her Party to address the Biden border crisis or offer Kansas support to combat the surge in illegal crossings and fentanyl trafficking:

Kansas GOP Chairman Mike Kuckelman commented: 

“Yesterday, more than half the nation’s governors called on President Biden to take immediate action to address the surge of illegal crossings and drug trafficking along the southern border, but Laura Kelly has remained silent. The Democrat-controlled federal government has failed to take action to address the humanitarian, health, and security crisis they themselves created with their reckless policies and refusal to enforce immigration laws. With drug seizures up, and COVID-positive illegals being released into American communities, Governor Kelly’s continued silence and inaction make her complicit in her Party’s failure.”“It’s past time the Governor join our neighboring states – and even her Democrat counterparts in states like Kentucky – to call out President Biden’s failure and take meaningful action to keep Kansans safe.”###
