100s of Sheriffs Call for Biden to Finish Trump’s Border Wall
Stop ‘gangs, guns, dangerous drugs’ from entering the U.S.
Hundreds of sheriffs from dozens of states are demanding Joe Biden solve the ongoing border crisis by finishing Donald Trump's border wall.
In a letter, signed by 275 sheriffs from 39 states, they warn of the massive risks in allowing illegal immigrants to continue flooding into the U.S.
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) has reported taking a record number of 172,331 people into custody for entering the country illegally.
The letter from the Federation for American Immigration Reform reads:
“America’s Sheriffs are deeply troubled about the dangerous impacts your administration’s border policies are having on our citizens, legal residents, and communities.
"You must act now before our nation’s public safety resources are overwhelmed with the criminal side effects of unchecked illegal immigration, including transnational gangs, guns, dangerous drugs, and human trafficking.”
“As this situation continues to evolve, more families will be exposed to the violence associated with drug trafficking and transnational gangs,” the letter continues.
“More parents will suffer the loss of their children, not because they were irresponsible, but because of exposure to criminal illegal alien violence caused by the reckless and irresponsible policies of your administration.”
“In a myriad of ways, you and your administration are encouraging and sanctioning lawlessness and the victimization of the people of the United States of America, all in the name of mass illegal immigration,” it says.
The Sheffifs say Biden has created the crisis at the border.
Law enforcement warned Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas of the effects of such border policies, but Biden ignored them.
“In the interests of ending the undermining of our laws and the increased risks to the safety and security of the people of the United States of America, we respectfully request that you immediately reverse course on your pro-illegal immigration policies, resume the border wall construction, and embrace the common-sense, public-safety-supporting border policies of the previous administration,” the letter says.
Earlier this week, Neon Nettle reported Biden was considering restarting the construction of Trump's wall as they struggle to bring the spiraling crisis under control.
During a conversation with ICE employees last week, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted that the Biden administration is considering finishing “gaps in the wall.”
"It’s not a single answer to a single question,” Mayorkas said, according to notes of the ICE session reviewed by The Washington Times.
"There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented, and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me."
