“The Biden administration’s anti-American immigration policies have failed to prioritize the safety and security of the American people, favored illegal aliens, and created an out-of-control border crisis,” Good wrote. “This President’s open border policies have allowed MS-13 to infiltrate cities around the United States infecting American communities with violence and drugs.”
