“At the end of the day, we’re all Americans, and we need to rise together,” Ryan Zinke
Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke said on Monday’s Breitbart News Daily that he “absolutely” supports a wall on the U.S. southern border with Mexico for a host of reasons, including national security, Breitbart reports.
“I absolutely agree with the [President Donald Trump]— a nation without borders can’t exist. We need to secure our borders. It’s a national security issue, a national defense issue, it’s a humanitarian crisis, and oh, by the way, it’s an environmental crisis” ~ Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke
Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke stands with President Trump’s recent decision to send Interior law enforcement personnel to the southern border along the 40 percent of land under that agency’s jurisdiction — a move Zinke said has already led to multiple arrests of illegal crossers.
“We’re going to make sure that the crossings come to an immediate halt,” Zinke said, noting that Interior has already doubled the number of agents since the first 22 were deployed.
RWT Reported earlier this month, U.S. park police and rangers have traditionally been tasked with protecting people and nature at national parks. But Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will be sending park police officers to the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a show of strength by the Trump administration.
Officers from the U.S. Park Police and the National Park Service will assist the U.S. Border Patrol, starting this Sunday, according to an internal email obtained by The Hill. The officers will be sent in rotating groups, spending about 21 days at a national park and a national monument: the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Arizona and the Amistad National Recreation Area in Texas.
“I’m red, white and blue — I look out after the American public that works hard during the week and wants to take their fishing pole out on the weekend or hike a trail, or drive a boat or recreate on America’s land,” Zinke
