COLUMBUS – State Representative Jena Powell (R-Arcanum) co-sponsored a concurrent resolution on Thursday to express that Ohio stands with the State of Texas and to denounce President Biden’s administration’s open-border policies.

"The Biden Administration’s blatant disregard for defending America’s southern border is beyond belief,” Powell said.  “I commend the members of Ohio’s National Guard and State Highway Patrol and their willingness to stand with the Texas National Guard to protect our border and keep us safe."

The resolution comes after the United States Supreme Court vacated a previous injunction issued by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals preventing federal border agents from accessing the border.

The state of Texas has asked the appeals court to reconsider the case.
