Governor Scott Walker and his administration have repeatedly dodged questions about their stance on the Trump Administration’s policy of family separation and Walker refuses to reverse his decision to send Wisconsin National Guard troops to assist with security at the southern border. In response, NextGen Wisconsin State Youth Director George Olufosoye made the following statement:

“Scott Walker’s silence during this humanitarian crisis speaks volumes about his ability to lead our state. While other governors across the nation have taken a stand against the Trump administration’s cruel family separation policy by withdrawing their National Guard from the border, Governor Walker has sat on his hands. Governor Walker’s inaction is an insult to Wisconsinites and does not reflect our values. We deserve a leader with a backbone to stand up to Trump, and in November, Wisconsin voters will remember this moment when they vote Walker out of office.”
