SANDOVAL REFUSES TRUMP’S REQUEST FOR NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS FOR THE BORDER Politics DEMOCRAT GOVERNOR SANDOVAL REFUSES TRUMP’S REQUEST FOR NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS FOR THE BORDER April 6, 2018 Rob Lauer Political Reporter The very popular (popular with Democrats, Republican in name only) Governor of Nevada, Brain Sandoval, today said he will not honor President Trump’s request for National Guard troops to be sent to guard the Mexican Border until the wall is built. This comes as no surprise to Nevadans who’ve watch Sandoval expand welfare and food stamps by 200% over 8 years, give driver’s licenses to illegal aliens in Nevada, raise taxes on businesses by over a billion dollars in order to fund English as a second language in public schools, support amnesty, look the other way while thousands of illegal aliens registered to vote and of course has been a never Trumper from the beginning. After Fake Republicans in Congress refused to fund the border wall in last month’s OMNIBUS bill, President Trump reported that he had slipped in extra military funding undiscovered by the Congress, which he now plans to use to send troops to the Mexican border. President Trump signed a proclamation yesterday directing Governors to send National Guard Troops to the Mexican Border to stem the flood of human trafficking, drug trafficking and violence and crime. Governor Sandoval stands with Oregon and California’s Governors, both of whom have also refused to honor the request from President Trump.
