Arizona Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is going after Joe Biden directly this week over his total failure at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Sinema met with Arizona’s National Guard on Thursday and said the federal government is not doing enough at the border.
“It’s clear that not enough is being done. Arizona is bearing the brunt of this crisis because of the Federal Government’s failure to address immigration issues over the last three decades,” Sinema said.
“We haven’t yet heard from the Biden Administration, but we continue to call on them for the urgency of the crisis we face.” We need to “create practical solutions that would disincentivize coyotes who are bringing migrants from other countries to our border,” she added.
“You’re not just hiring high-skilled people who will work inside that factory, creating those semiconductors. You’re also hiring construction workers who will build the facilities, but you’re also hiring more teachers, more restauranteurs, more people in the community to provide services for that facility, and for the folks who will move here to have those high-paying jobs inside a semiconductor manufacturing facility,” she continued.
Last week, two Democrat senators criticized the Biden Administration’s handling of the border crisis, The Blaze reported.
“While I share President Biden’s urgency in fixing our broken immigration system, what I didn’t hear tonight was a plan to address the immediate crisis at the border, and I will continue holding this administration accountable to deliver the resources and staffing necessary for a humane, orderly process as we work to improve border security, support local economies, and fix our immigration system,” Democrat Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly said.
“Sen. Sinema has been clear that she — along with Sen. Kelly — wants to see more action from the administration to address the border crisis and support Arizona border communities. She’s spoken directly with administration officials on this,” the office of Sinema said.
A new report reveals that the administration is apprehending nearly 6,000 illegal immigrants a day at the U.S.-Mexico border.
And that number doesn’t even include the illegal aliens who are getting into the country through fraudulent and other sneaky ways.
Throughout April, Customs and Border Protection has encountered an average of just under 6,000 people daily at the southern border, according to a Department of Homeland Security official, which is in line with the March average of around 5,560 people daily.
During the first three weeks of April, around 122,000 people were encountered by US border authorities on the southwest border, another signal that the month will likely be similar to March, according to preliminary data obtained by CNN.
Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton had sued Biden’s administration for allegedly releasing Covid-infected illegal aliens into the United States.
Last month it was reported that the Biden Administration was releasing Covid positive illegal aliens into the US interior.
While there’s an increase in Covid-infected illegal aliens coming into America, Biden has substantially decreased the number of illegal aliens they are arresting.
According to Breitbart, Immigration and Customs Enforcement have carried out 75% fewer “priority” arrests, and arrests the Biden administration deems “non-priority” have been cut by over 80% compared to the same time frame in 2020.
Last week, it was revealed that the Biden administration is directing Border Patrol agents to dramatically decrease using DNA tests on apprehended migrants at the border, which was used by the Trump administration to identify fake families.
