Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-09) issued the following statement after the Biden regime released new data showing 204,561 illegal aliens crossed the southern border in May.
“For 27 straight months, more than 150,000 lawbreakers crossed the southern border, including more than 204,000 last month. Nearly seven million illegals have now poured into our country thanks to Biden’s reckless open border policies, including 125 on the terrorist watch list this fiscal year. To put that into perspective, this total is more than the FY2017, FY2018, FY2019, FY2020 and FY2021 combined.
Sadly, illicit drugs, including deadly fentanyl, also continue to pour in. More than 17,000 pounds of fentanyl have been seized by border officials in that last seven months. So much more never makes its way into every state across the country, destroying families and communities.
Mr. Biden’s reckless open border policies continue to be an open invitation to criminals and drug cartels to cross into our country unchecked. Biden refuses to protect the people of America and he has lost the trust of its citizens,” concluded Congressman Gosar.
