The U.S.-Mexico border is being ravaged by illegal immigrants.
This includes Mexican crime cartels who are using the lax immigration policies of the Biden administration to essentially do whatever they want, and one Arizona Sheriff is tired of it.
During an interview on Fox & Friends, Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels said the Biden administration’s failure to control the border crisis has become an epidemic in the state of Arizona.
Below is a transcript of Daniels full remarks on the issue, via Fox News:
It should be a concern to every American. Right now in this country, we had over 200,000 getaways. What that means is they’ve been seen on federal cameras but were not captured. And that’s what’s being seen. 200,000 in my sector of the state, my region of the state over 60,000.
And then you look at every day on the southwest border, 1,100 getaways are coming into our country every day. We have no idea who they are. They’re camouflaged. They’re smuggled by the cartels and released in communities. That is a public safety national security threat…
I think every elected leader should pay a political price on this issue. The fact is, we take an oath of office and that is to safeguard the quality of life Americans expect and to protect all Americans. And we’re not doing that right now on the southwest border.
It’s the largest crime scene, I’ve said that numerous times, that when it comes to public safety, national security, in my county, nobody has walked up to me and said, ‘Sheriff, the border thing’s good.’ Nobody’s said that… I mean, it is an epidemic in my state that we have a border that’s not secure.
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials announced on Friday that a whopping 188,829 illegal aliens crossed into America in June 2021, the most in any month for the past 21 years.
Since Biden took office, there have now been over 1 million crossings this yea, according to data from CBP.
And the crisis is only getting worse.
Below are the monthly totals of illegal border crossings dating back six months:
Former Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Ron Vitiello is calling out Joe Biden for directly being involved in creating and allowing the border crisis to worsen by the day.
During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Vitiello said the “root cause” of the border crisis is Biden’s decision to reverse several immigration policies enacted by Donald Trump.
“Working with Guatemala, working with the Northern Triangle on governance and anti-corruption activities, that’s all well and good, but that’s not going to stop the surge that’s occurring on the border right now,” Vitiello said.
“We’ve encouraged people to send or bring their children to the border and the root cause of the chaos is the reversal of the policies,” he continued.
