Zinke Sends ID Enforcement To Border

By Kenneth White

Starting May 13th, The US Park Police and the National Park Service will send 22 officers to assist the Border Patrol and DHS in securing the US and Mexico border. USPP officers are traditionally tasked with policing NPS property in Washington DC, New York and San Francisco. Zinke called his decision the “first of many steps Interior will take to secure the homeland.” The Interior Department manages 40% of the land along the southern border.

While Zinke was recently under scrutiny for US Park Police officers recently accompanying him and his wife while they vacationed in Greece and Turkey last year, he also recently announced a billion dollars of national funding for state wildlife agencies from two separate restoration acts.

In a speech from a visit to Horicon, WI, Zinke said “American sportsmen and women are some of our best conservationists and they contribute billions of dollars toward wildlife conservation and sportsmen access every year through the Pittman-Robertson and Dingell-Johnson Acts.”
