Sinema: Border ‘is a Crisis’ and Federal Govt ‘Must Do More’

May 10, 2021

In a radio interview on The Mike Broomhead Show Thursday, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema criticized President Joe Biden for his mishandling of a tsunami of illegal migrants overwhelming our southern border with Mexico, calling it a “crisis” and urging the federal government to do more to address it.

“What I’m waiting for is the administration to take bold action to actually address these concerns,” Sinema said .”The reality is, this is a crisis and the federal government must do more to address this surge of migrants who are coming to the border with increasing numbers each year.”

“To me, it’s not important whether the person in the White House is a Democrat or a Republican in terms of negotiating or talking with them,” she added.

Sinema and Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act last month to create border centers designed to process asylum seekers more efficiently. Meanwhile, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) declared a state of emergency and announced the deployment of the Arizona National Guard to assist local law enforcement.

“The situation in our border communities is just as bad—if not worse—than the coverage we’ve been seeing,” Ducey stated at the time. “It’s become evidently clear that Arizona needs the National Guard, and the White House is aware of that. Yet, to this day, there has been no action from this administration, and it doesn’t look like they are going to act any time soon. If this administration isn’t going to do anything, then we will.”
