Joe Biden’s border crisis has increased crime in border crossing areas, the spread of COVID from infected illegals flooding across the border, and numerous other problems. Cartels are increasing human and drug trafficking operations and operating in broad daylight. The situation is worse than many wish to admit — but one Arizona sheriff has spoken out about the issue, calling Joe Biden’s border crisis “an epidemic.”
During an appearance on Fox and Friends, Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels explained how much damage Biden is doing to the country.
“It should be a concern to every American. Right now in this country, we had over 200,000 getaways,” Dannels says. “What that means is they’ve been seen on federal cameras but were not captured.”
“And that’s what’s being seen. 200,000 in my sector of the state, my region of the state over 60,000. And then you look at every day on the southwest border, 1,100 getaways are coming into our country every day,” he says. “We have no idea who they are. They’re camouflaged. They’re smuggled by the cartels and released in communities. That is a public safety national security threat.” But he didn’t stop there. He says that Biden’s created an “epidemic” by leaving the border wide open:
I think every elected leader should pay a political price on this issue. The fact is, we take an oath of office and that is to safeguard the quality of life Americans expect and to protect all Americans. And we’re not doing that right now on the southwest border. It’s the largest crime scene, I’ve said that numerous times, that when it comes to public safety, national security, in my county, nobody has walked up to me and said, ‘Sheriff, the border thing’s good.’ Nobody’s said that… I mean, it is an epidemic in my state that we have a border that’s not secure.
The problems at the border won’t be fixed overnight — or by this administration. That’s why it’s important for us to retake Congress in 2022 and to win the White House in 2024.
