For opting not to heed President Donald Trump’s call to send National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval deserves a hand.
The Republican governor was absolutely right in saying that the border assignment wouldn’t be an appropriate use of the state National Guard, which has more important duties here at home and doesn’t need to be put in harm’s way hundreds of miles south.
Besides that, the fact is that troops aren’t needed from any state.
