Wisconsin Gov. Evers pulls National Guard troops from border

As a native Wisconsinite now living in the deep-blue state of Oregon, I’m heartened to see my once proudly progressive home state veering back toward sanity.

Stating the glaringly obvious, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has announced he will pull the state’s National Guard troops from the U.S.-Mexico border, where I can only presume they’ve been relentlessly drilling the latest cutting-edge military protocols for scratching their own balls.



A statement about the executive order, signed Monday, offers a bit more detail: 112 Guard soldiers and airmen, under the command of then-Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, were deployed to the Arizona border on June 21, 2018, to assist with border security.

Now, Evers is revoking that order.

It is unclear exactly when the troops will return but Evers said he had directed the adjutant general to “promptly withdraw” all personnel. “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,” he said.

In other words, Scotty doesn’t live here anymore, so the state government no longer has to pretend that Donald Trump ever makes a whit of sense.

On, Wisconsin!
