Marsha Blackburn: Thanks to Biden, Tennessee is Now a Border State

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – It’s easy to put stories of the crisis facing our nation at a distance when you live and work more than a thousand miles north of the United States-Mexico border. But as the effects of mass illegal immigration spread northward, Tennesseans are facing a stark new reality: when our border isn’t secure, every town becomes a border town and every state a border state.

Perhaps no one understands that better than Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch, who describes the crisis as “out of control.”

New Southern Border Wall Reaches 400 Miles

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Nearly 400 miles of new border wall system is now complete. Just as important, the Donald Trump Administration is prosecuting and deporting violent criminals, stopping the flow of illegal drugs, and closing the loopholes that help human smugglers while hurting our own citizens, including legal immigrants.

“The refugee system—set up to provide refuge for victims of war and persecution who had nowhere else to go, often on an explicitly temporary basis—had long since become a racket,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd writes.
