The Federation for American Immigration Reform has led various statements about the border crisis the country is going through. Likewise, they assured that the federal government should pay more attention to the custody of this sector of the country.
This Saturday, September 30, the leaders of New Hampshire, Colorado, Connecticut and Oklahoma joined several state representatives from Texas in Anzalduas Park and what they proposed was to increase the presence of law enforcement on the border and to double the efforts to address the crisis.
Similarly, sheriffs from counties far away in Texas, along with representatives and senators from other states, led a strong statement by the federal government to strengthen security in border and deal with the immigration crisis that first started crossing the Texas border.
“This country cannot continue at the rate we are going. On behalf of the American people I am asking President Joe Biden to take this country back and secure our borders,” said Mike Lewis, sheriff of Wicomico County, Maryland. .
According to Lewis, the Border Patrol and the Texas DPS often do not work efficiently for a variety of reasons.
The stage lends itself to highlighting the public health crisis facing the United States due to the widespread marketing of the new synthetic drug fentanyl.
“This fentanyl crisis I want people to understand that fentanyl, for the most part, is not produced in our country, it is brought directly from the other side of this border, there are other people responsible as well, but we need to put an end to this crisis,” said West Virginia State Senator Mike Stuart.
Due to the imminent possible arrival of a temporary shutdown of the government due to the blockade of the budget debated in Congress, the spokesmen also expressed their disapproval of the policies implemented by the government of Joe Biden.
“The people who are here securing this border are trying to keep this country safe and they need all the help they can get from the Biden administration. What we need are strong men and women,” said Steve Reams, sheriff of ‘Weld County, Colorado..
For Reams, a policy like Governor Abbott’s in the state of Texas requires the Biden administration to go ahead and see what it’s doing.
It should be noted that in the House of Representatives and the Senate, there is a majority of Republicans, an issue that is a hidden handbrake for many policies led by the government of Biden and Harris.
These representatives indicated that the alternatives that not only them, but all their communities proposed were: more resources to deal with the crisis, more military presence, a government alliance between federal agencies and a frontal attack to reduce the fentanyl crisis.
