Arizona sheriff calls for leadership from White House on border crisis: ‘We are not hearing anything’

An Arizona sheriff is accusing President Joe Biden of grossly mishandling the crisis at the U.S.–Mexico border.

Speaking with Fox News, Cochise County, Arizona Sheriff Mark Dannels blasted the Biden administration’s response to a recent surge of migrants at the border and called for transparency from the White House that he says has been sorely lacking to this point.

“Public safety issue”

Dannels’ comments came during a recent appearance on Fox’s Your World. The sheriff began by putting the southern border crisis into perspective.

“Last month alone, 178,000 illegal entries on the southern border,” Dannels said, according to Fox. “These are 20-year highs. Last month, [a] record number in historical times, just under 19,000 unaccompanied minors.” It’s “really scary to me,” the sheriff said.

“Two hundred thousand getaways by federal fiscal year, 60,000 in my area of the southeast corner of Arizona,” he explained to Fox. “Those are 60,000 coming through my section of the state that are camouflaged, we have no idea who they are. They got away from our border, they are somewhere in the United States.”

“What is the plan?”

Accordingly, Dannels said that this is “a national security, public safety issue.” And it’s one that the Biden White House has been largely silent about, the sheriff claimed.

“There is no transparency with this [Biden] administration,” Dannels told Fox. “On May 11, 2021, 20 governors signed a letter…to President Biden and Vice President [Kamala] Harris asking for transparency in what they are doing, what is the plan, and we need to secure the border together.”

He went on: “All we ask is President Biden and Vice President Harris lead this issue, and right now we are not hearing anything out of them. It’s frustrating.”

“Turn that faucet off”

Of course, Dannels is far from the only one who has been a vocal critic of the White House’s handling of the situation at the border. Even Democrats are turning up the pressure on the Biden administration to do something — or at least visit the border to see the problem for themselves.

“Border Patrol says ‘we got to release these people, family units, because we’re short-handed, we don’t have the time, we don’t have the space,'” Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar (D) told National Review in a recent interview. “And to me, the administration should not be doing that, because you’re leaving people out on the honor system. So, at the border, they need help there. The Border Patrol folks need help there.”

Polls indicate Biden’s approach to immigration is also unpopular with everyday Americans, many of whose concerns are going unaddressed by the White House, at least according to officials on the ground at the border.

If Biden doesn’t step up soon, it may soon be too late, says Cuellar. “Unless they turn that faucet off, the numbers are going to continue to come in,” he told National Review.

  8. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    All of the real American citizens on the southern borders need to do something their selves. When they do it won’t be very pretty and that’s a fact. Biden and Harris both need to be impeached for not doing to job for the American citizens.

Harris and Bernie Sanders,Nancy Pelosim,Chuck Schumer have completly proven they are a enemy of the American people, and 27 Repubs all these a more have to be defeated at the baliot box, this country as we know and care about is going down the tube,if we don’t get rid of these leeches, we are tired of paying their bills and wages, for what?
