Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers ordered the state's 112 National Guard troops who are currently at the U.S.-Mexico border to withdraw on Monday, The Associated Press reports. The Democratic governor explained the move in a statement saying there was simply no justification for troops being stationed there. “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. “There is simply not ample evidence to support the president’s contention of a national security crisis at our southwestern border.” The former governor, Republican Scott Walker, had reportedly ordered the troops be deployed to the border before he lost reelection to Evers.
