OKLAHOMA CITY – Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, has filed a resolution to reject the insertion of Ukrainian troops in Oklahoma.
“These America Last policies of the current regime should not be tolerated in Oklahoma,” Dahm said. “We saw how recently the Ukrainian military fired a rocket into Poland killing two innocent civilians. We certainly don’t need them practicing here in Oklahoma where our citizens could be under the constant threat of a similar failure.”
Senate Concurrent Resolution 2 would direct the Pentagon to reverse course on their recent announcement to send 100 Ukrainian troops into Oklahoma for training on U.S. missile systems.
“This resolution rejects this attempt by the feds to put foreign troops in Oklahoma,” Dahm said. “It even encourages the governor, county officials, and law enforcement to use their powers to prohibit these foreign troops from being on Oklahoma soil.”
SCR 2 would remain in effect until superseded by a new resolution to ensure the feds don’t make another attempt in the future to send even more foreign troops.
“We must put the people of Oklahoma first,” Dahm said. “We shouldn’t be allowing the unaccountable spending, corruption, and potential money laundering to now flow through Oklahoma with the presence of foreign troops on our land.”
