AAF Praises Governor Ducey for Action on the Border Crisis

Governor Ducey of Arizona took the Biden border crisis in his own hands by improvising a border wall with shipping containers, bracing for the flood of illegal immigration at the end of Title 42. The Biden administration, rather than stepping up to back Governor Ducey, instead ordered the removal of the makeshift border wall, while still refusing to address the crisis.

“The Biden administration has gone from simply being bad on the border to being a root cause of the crisis. Under the current administration there have been 5.5 million illegal crossings,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “Governors, such as Ducey, are doing their job and fulfilling their duty to protect their states, but they are going it alone and with constant roadblocks from this administration. Democrat Representative Cuellar of Texas said it right on Wednesday, ‘If there’s a crisis, show up. Just show up. Just showing up at the border would send a strong signal to the communities that he’s there — he cares about the border communities. Just show up. It doesn’t take much to just show up at the border.’”
