WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) joined Sheriffs Mark Dannels and Mark Lamb on Newsmax to discuss their recent trip to the U.S.-Mexico border and expose the reality of Biden’s crisis.
Border Sheriffs are on the Front Line Protecting America
“These sheriffs are out there on the front line protecting their people from all of this illegal entry—the human trafficking, sex trafficking, drug trafficking,” said Senator Blackburn. “They are seeing it all every day; they’re living it every day.”
Senator Blackburn on Biden’s Border Crisis
“This is a crisis of Joe Biden’s making. It is the Biden open border policy,” said Senator Blackburn. “It is the Biden immigration plan. He broke the border, basically, and now he is depending on other people to put this [back] together.”
Sheriff Lamb Responds to Kamala Harris Laughing at Human Trafficking
“Just last week [Vice President Kamala Harris] was asked if she was going to come to the border to view this issue, and she laughed as if it was some kind of joke,” said Sheriff Lamb. “Well, it’s not a joke to us, and it’s not a joke to the American people. We want results.”
Sheriff Dannels on Biden’s Refusal to Recognize the Border Crisis
“I was so excited to see Senator Blackburn come down here and see [the crisis] firsthand. I wish every congress member, House and Senate, would come see the southern border somewhere to see the reality, not the political side of this,” said Sheriff Mark Dannels. “We have a crisis at our border when it comes to our children, when it comes to the cartels, when it comes to drug smuggling, human smuggling, and the message that’s being sent.”
On Sunday, March 21, 2021, Senator Blackburn visited the U.S.-Mexico border with Sheriff Lamb, Sheriff Mark Dannels, and local ranchers. The group visited Pinal County located 60 miles north of the border and Cochise County positioned directly along Arizona’s border with Mexico. Read more about the trip here.
