Earlier this week, the state of Arizona declared a national emergency. Governor Ducey sent the National Guard to the border due to the crisis underway and its subsequent impacts.
Earlier today, the Texas attorney general sued President Biden over the coronavirus transmission risk posed by the Southern border crisis. For weeks upon weeks now, the GOP has urged the Biden administration to fix the border crisis; however, the crisis remains ongoing and now states are forced to pick up the federal government’s slack.
On Wednesday, former Vice President Mike Pence weighed in on the Southern border crisis in a scathing opinion piece published by The Daily Signal.
The former vice president on the Southern border crisis
In Pence’s article, he noted the Trump administration’s success in not only securing the Southern border, but also significantly reducing illegal immigration.
The former vice president then explained that within “three short months,” Biden reversed all the positive developments at the border; Pence also pointed out that Biden’s policies have engendered surges in illegal immigration. Human smugglers and more crimes against Americans living near the Southern border are on the rise as well.
