Davenport, IOWA – According to the state officials, the Border Strike Force will facilitate the sharing of intelligence information across state lines to improve border enforcement.
According to Gov. Reynolds, information from criminal investigations across the nation will be shared to help combat drug trafficking, human smuggling and the prevalence of cartels and other drug organizations infiltrating the U.S. from the border.
State participation in the Border Strike Force requires no taxpayer funds or enforcement personnel, officials said.
Information is already routinely gathered during investigations and will be shared as classified intelligence information with other state law enforcement agencies.
Governor Kim Reynolds released the following statement:
“We can’t stand idle while President Biden does nothing to stop the crisis at our border, which is having devastating effects on every state.President Biden’s disastrous border policies and lack of leadership are destroying our country.
Fentanyl and other major drugs are becoming increasingly prevalent in our communities, so we must step up and protect our states, our families, our children, and our country that we’ve worked so hard to keep safe.”
