While 26 Governors demand meeting with Biden on Border Crisis...
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — With border apprehensions up almost 500% over a year ago, and with just under 10,000 Illegal Apprehensions involving prior Criminal Convictions so far this year, a total of 26 of America's 50 State Governors sent a letter to President Biden earlier this week demanding a meeting within 15 days to address the crisis facing America's Southern Borders – saying that the Illegal Immigration Surge occuring since Biden took office has created an "international humanitarian crisis."
A letter signed by 26 Republican Governors and sent to Mr. Biden Monday, including Arizona's Gov. Doug Ducey, Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas – all of which represent states dramatically impacted by the Biden Border Crisis – asked President Biden to schedule a meeting at the White House within the next 15 days so they can have an "open and constructive dialogue regarding border enforcement on behalf of U.S. citizens in our states and all those hoping to become U.S. citizens."
Referring to government figures showing that more fentanyl has been seized this fiscal year than the last three years combined – and that cartels and human traffickers are making millions by smuggling people and drugs across the border – the majority of governors in the United States said that:
"While governors are doing what we can, our Constitution requires that the president must faithfully execute the immigration laws passed by Congress.
"A crisis that began at our southern border now extends beyond to every state and requires immediate action before the situation worsens. Not only has the federal government created a crisis, it has left our states to deal with challenges that only the federal government has a duty to solve.
"Border apprehensions are up almost 500% compared to last year, totaling more than 1.3 million – more people than the populations of nine U.S. states," said the 26 governors.
"Our immigration system may be complicated and complex, but the solution to ending the border crisis is simple and straightforward. The negative impacts of an unenforced border policy on the American people can no longer be ignored," they wrote.
"As president, you have the ability to take action to protect America, restore security, and end the crisis now."
Texas Mother Blames Biden for Border Surge: 'It's beyond bad'
Meanwhile, Alison Anderson, a Texas landowner and the wife of a Customs & Border Protection agent, told Fox News' Lawrence Jones earlies this week what it's like to live near the southern border amid the migrant surge, noting that the situation is "out of control."
“I find it very hypocritical at this moment that our president went on national television and as a priority mandated vaccines, COVID vaccines specifically, for our Border Patrol Agents – and mind you, if they’re not fully vaccinated by sometime around the end of November they face termination – those are the same Border Patrol Agents that’re out here tonight, and that’ve been here holding the line tirelessly since this entire crisis has begun.
"They're the same agents that are facing possible termination if they’re not fully vaccinated under President Biden’s mandate.
“We know, however, that there’s over 13,000 people under this bridge, and there’s confirmed contagious illnesses – there’s tuberculosis, hepatitis, Chicken Pox is breaking out and we’re waiting for confirmation for leprosy and the measles – so instead of that as a priority and controlling the COVID that is spreading like wildfire, the priority was to force mandates on our Border Patrol Agents while they’re stuck dealing with contagious illnesses that’re spreading right now at this very moment.”
“We would like to hear this actually get called what it is, which is a crisis – its a Border Crisis, it’s a Health Crisis, and it’s a Security Crisis right now. So yeah, it would be great to have some support, but unfortunately if our town, our community, our citizens and our agents, our DPS and our troops, nobody’s getting that support.”
