Skip to comments.Arizona's Dem Governor Begs Biden for Border Help As Her State Is Overrun
Posted on 12/08/2023 2:59:45 PM PST by Michael.SF.
Arizona's Democrat Governor Katie Hobbs sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Friday making an "urgent request regarding our southern border" amid a surge of illegal immigrants that has completely overwhelmed border agents as the area becomes overrun and portions of a border wall have been breached.
Saying she has "deep concern," Governor Hobbs lamented that "[f]or far too long, Arizona has continued to bear the burder of federal inaction in managing our southern border" and warned things have devolved into an "unmitigated humanitarian crisis" following the Biden administration's decision to close the Lukeville Port of Entry. That closure, however, did not do anything to stop the slow of illegal immigrants.
"Our ports of entry are essential to our state and our country's economy, and it is vital that they be properly staffed and resourced to continue to fuel economic growth in the state," Hobbs explained in her letter to Biden. More on Hobbs' request from her letter:
Of the approximately 2,500 National Guard members currently on federal active duty orders on the southern border, 243 are already in the Tucson Sector and can be reassigned to reopen the Lukeville Port of Entry. I request that you do so immediately. Further, to the extent it is necessary, I am requested that additional National Guard members currently on federal active duty orders be reassigned to Arizona to assist U.S. Customs and Border Protection to reopen the Lukeville Port of Entry. With this additional manpower, I am confident you will have the resources necessary to continue trade and tourism through the port while keeping Arizona communities safe.
In addition to her request for more manpower, Hobbs asked Biden to reimburse her state for the $512,529,333 she said her state has spent "on border operations including migrant transportation, drug interdiction, and law enforcement" as a result of "the federal government's failure to secure our border."
The border crisis, of course, was not caused just by the closure of the Lukeville Port of Entry — it was caused by the Biden administration's flawed immigration policies that caused disastrous and deadly results that have even Democrat governors seeking help from the man responsible for their border woes.
Leftists have intercepted the letter, buried it and Lunch Bucket Joe will never see it or hear about it... not that he’d know what to do anyway.
one election cheat asking another election cheat for federal money because of their election cheats.
At some point the citizens will take a stand. Kind of like we saw after Katrina and the Koreans during the Rodney King riots.
FBI to rain Katie Bobbs house in 3, 2, 1. When Democrat leaders ask for help for the border crisis, the FBI (Militant Arm of the WH) goes after leaders
Katie Hobbs is not just a commie election fraud cheater. She’s also not very bright; challenging Congressmen Raúl Grijalva for the title of “Dumbest Democrat Politician In Arizona.” No easy feat.
She’s the one who’s been allowing this invasion.....for MONTHS!!
Hey guys, it’s just another female who can’t do her job. And the mayor of San Francisco and the ex mayor of Chicago and the mayor of Washington DC all female failures.
Katie must have run out of Democrat voter registration cards.
SORTA LIKE A CIRCLE JERK
ALSO OAKLAND, Cal
And we the people say, a big fat no. it’s OUR MONEY NOT JOBAMAS. SO YOU DEAL WITH IT. You helped with the steal and got that man installed as President. He is not legitimate anyway to give away our tax dollars. So go call an ambulance.
Stolen elections have consequences.
Air head begging a moron.
You have your militia governor, USE IT!
I feel bad for the Republicans there. But, for the Dims? Embrace the suck.
Trump/Lake 2024. I hope those stupid idiots who voted for hobbs enjoy their invasion of rapists.
Hey Katie, ENJOY THE SUCK.
You cheated your way into the governor’s mansion. Show everyone how accomplished a leader you are.
OOPS MY BAD. Show them just how BAD A CHEATER YOU ARE.
Exactly the thieving bitch is fine with the open border this is a BS head fake.
