Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is going after Joe Biden with everything he has.
In a letter, Brnovich urged Republican Gov. Doug Ducey to declare a state of emergency in the state and deploy the National Guard to deal with the surge in migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Reversing the devastating trends at the border will require enforcing the rule of law and holding the federal government accountable,” Brnovich said, urging the state government to act “swiftly.”
Brnovich calls on Ducey to declare a state of emergency and convene the state’s emergency council to “address the border crisis and the human and illegal drug trafficking that will continue to flow from it.”

Gov. Ducey has also been sounding the alarm on the border crisis.
“This is a crisis, this is an emergency,” Ducey said. “This is a problem that was largely solved or stable under the previous [Trump] administration. The Biden White House is divorced from reality. They need to fix these policies, properly communicate and provide resources to border states now so we can stem the tide of what’s happening at this border. It’s both a national security crisis and a humanitarian crisis.”
During an interview on Fox Business earlier this week, Brnovich said Harris has failed to respond to his invitation to tour the crisis at the US-Mexico border.
“I guess if you were a philosopher you would say no response is a very loud response because we’ve not received any response,” Brnovich said.
Harris needs to “look into the eyes of people being smuggled across the border, being exploited by the cartels and realize this is a humanitarian crisis on so many levels,” Brnovich said.
“It’s not fair to the migrants that think they’re being promised things, it’s not fair to the people – the hardworking taxpayers of this country who are going to have to subsidize and pay for health care and child care and other social services for these migrants,” he added.
It’s also not fair to anyone when “you have literally criminals coming into this country,” he continued.
Biden announced on March 24 that Harris would lead the administration’s efforts at the border, and she has not visited one time to even hold a press event on the crisis.
And, just to be clear, NBC News published a report on March 24 titled: “Biden tasks Harris with ‘stemming the migration’ on southern border.”
Harris is 100% appointed to “handle” the border crisis and she has not visited the border one time since Biden named her.
The border crisis created by the Biden administration is about to get a lot worse in the coming months.
According to a report from CNN, internal government calculations from the Biden administration project that officials expect to encounter an estimated two million people at the border in 2021.
“US Border Patrol encounters are also expected to be largely made up of single adults, who are being turned away at the US southern border as soon as they’re encountered under a public health order, and as a result, might also account for repeat crossers,” CNN reported.
The Biden administration is projecting that the number of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border could spiral from more than 16,000 this month to as many as 26,000 in September, Axios reported.
