Madison…Racine and Kenosha area legislators released the following statement after
Governor Evers finally accepted federal assistance from President Trump to help law
enforcement in Kenosha.

“After three nights of uncontrollable riots and tragic deaths, our communities welcome
the federal assistance and additional National Guard members to help local authorities
take back our streets and allow for peaceful protests. It is sad that it has taken this long
for the governor to seek out the necessary help. Even during the most contentious times,
the safety of our citizens is paramount and should always come before politics. No one
should live in fear inside their own homes or worry if their business will go up in flames.

“We continue to stand ready to work with national, state and local officials to ensure
that our area receives the assistance and resources it needs moving forward.”
