Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) may be a Democrat, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to sit back and let President Joe Biden flood her state’s communities with illegal aliens.
In a surprising rebuke, Sinema and fellow Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly (D) called on Biden to address the border crisis — even using the dreaded term that the White House has avoided like a pox. According to the Washington Examiner, the pair began a Wednesday letter in blunt terms: “There is a crisis at the southern border.”
“Securing the border”
In their letter, both Democrats called on Biden to share the burden of securing Arizona’s border with Mexico.
The Democrats also asked Biden to reimburse Arizona after their Republican governor, Doug Ducey, deployed 250 National Guards troops Tuesday, as the Examiner reported.
“This need for a secure and orderly process at the U.S. southern border should not fall on the state of Arizona or Arizona border communities,” Sinema and Kelly said.
They also asked Biden to “continue to increase DHS personnel who can further assist with the processing of migrants, securing the border, and executing important security missions,” and echoed concerns — mostly shared by Republicans — about the risk of migrants spreading COVID-19.
“We stand ready to work with you to support our border communities, secure the border, prevent the spread of COVID-19, and treat all migrants and unaccompanied children fairly and humanely,” the pair said.
Biden’s criminal neglect
At the local level, several mayors in America’s border towns have spoken out against the Biden administration for dumping migrants into their communities without warning. It’s worth noting that Arizona was a state that Biden unexpectedly carried in the 2020 election.
Some 170,000 migrants were apprehended at the border in the month of March, according to reports.
In the meantime, Biden has gone to humorous, absurd extremes to avoid confronting reality. When he accidentally used the term “crisis” last weekend, the White House promptly walked back his acknowledgment of the elephant in the room.
Amazingly, the White House claimed that Biden was referring to a “crisis” in Central America, not the United States — indirectly demonstrating just how little they care about the destruction Biden is causing back home.
Apparently, Biden thinks he’s the president of Honduras — but not all Democrats are ready to share in his shameful neglect, it seems.
