NEW: The federal government won’t act — but Arizona will. To address the crisis at the border, I’ve issued a Declaration of Emergency and am deploying the brave men and women of our @AZNationalGuard to support law enforcement efforts and protect Arizonans. pic.twitter.com/EdFkiM2C5t— Doug Ducey (@dougducey) April 20, 2021
As the White House continues to do nothing tp stop illegal immigration, more officials are sounding the alarm on the Biden border crisis. While speaking to reporters in Yuma on Wednesday, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) said he was sending National Guard troops to assist at immigration detention centers in order to help local law enforcement agencies. “I declared a state of emergency at the border and I announced we’re deploying the National Guard. Under the leadership of newly appointed Adjutant General Kerry Muehlenbeck, we will be sending up to 250 of our best women and men to our border communities, including here in Yuma.” said the Governor.
Ducey went on to blast Joe Biden for not doing enough to support local communities as the number of migrant apprehensions continues to grow. “Border Patrol is overwhelmed; there’s over a 170,000 apprehensions that have happened on our southern border, 18,000 children that are in the custody of the federal government, and the federal government’s not a very good parent,” he stated. “So, there are resources that are needed here and the Border Patrol’s mission is, of course, to patrol the border.”
It goes without saying that just from a humanitarian standpoint, the White House needs to declare a crisis at the southern border, in order for proper resources to be allocated. But evidently, for purely political reasons, this
dictatorship administation isn't going do that. Meanwhile, federal officials have opened more migrant processing centers in the Grand Canyon State to accommodate the influx. Apparently, Greyhound buses and Hampton Inns across the country have already filled up.
