Gov. Noem and Colleagues to Join Border Security Press Conference in Eagle Pass, TX
EAGLE PASS, TX – On Monday, Governor Kristi Noem will join a press conference in Eagle Pass, Texas with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, Nebraska Governor Jim Pillen, and Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt.

The governors will also be joined by the Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw, Adjutant General of Texas Major General Thomas Suelzer, and Texas Border Czar Mike Banks.
