On Thursday, Rep. Joey Arrington urged other states to follow in Florida’s footsteps by sending law enforcement to the southern border to assist with the border crisis. In regards to the migrant surge, he predicted, ”We’re going to see more.”
”I like what I’m seeing, and we need to see more of it,” Arrington told Newsmax host Christ Salcedo, referring to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sending help to Texas.
”We introduced [a resolution] last week, basically, we’re saying, ‘States: you have sovereign powers to defend your borders and protect your people”’ the Texas lawmaker said.
”The states have that inherent right of self defense, so they should be exercising these powers,” he continued. ”So they don’t need our legislation. They don’t need Congress to act. Their commander in chief has failed to provide for the common defense … It’s time to secure the border, enforce the laws and do that through the powers, constitutionally protected, of our sovereign states. So I think you’re going to see more of this.”
Arrington also ripped Vice President Kamala Harris for not addressing the crisis, despite being assigned a key role in controlling the border crisis.
”I’m not surprised that Kamala Harris isn’t wanting to have this conversation, nor am I surprised that she is not going to the border,” he said. ”She doesn’t want to own this. She isn’t just placating the radical open border left. She is the radical open border left.
”We shouldn’t be surprised. We should only be disappointed and embarrassed that Joe Biden has made her the border czar,” Arrington added.
