Five Arizona House Democrats who have repeatedly denied that there is a crisis at the border have asked acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan to help with the flood of immigrants at the southern border by appointing a “federal crisis coordinator.”
Arizona Democratic Reps. Ruben Gallego, Raúl Grijalva, Ann Kirkpatrick, Greg Stanton and Tom O’Halleran wrote that the administration’s measures to use Defense Department funds, build a wall, cut aid to Central America and threaten to shut down the U.S.-Mexico border “will create a range of other catastrophic issues and fail to address this humanitarian crisis in any way.” –The Hill
“This humanitarian crisis requires a humanitarian response,” reads the letter. “To that end, we believe that you should immediately increase communication and coordination among federal, state, local, and tribal governments as well as non-governmental stakeholders to promote the well-being and safety of migrant families, process asylum claims quicker, efficiently use federal and non-federal resources, and ensure that DHS [Department of Homeland Security] can meet its national security mission.”
The ONLY saving grace that our country currently has against the forces of evil is the 2nd Amendment.
