South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem appeared on Fox New Channel’s “Fox & Friends” recently and slammed Biden over his handling of the border crisis.
Noem alleged Biden is purposefully “destroying our border” in an attempt to “remake” the country.
The governor pointed out the consequences of our unprotected border allowing unchecked illegal immigration:
“This is a national security threat that he’s bringing on to our country and creating crisis after crisis by allowing us to have a border that’s not secure, by not following through on policies that secure the American people by increasing our energy costs, food costs, people are suffering and he’s going on vacation.”
Noem also comically urged Biden to return to his basement dwelling days since the country was much better off then:
“So I honestly wish the President would go back to his basement. I think we did a little bit better when he was down in his basement rather than when he was heading off on vacation. At least then he was still talking to the American people, even though it was tough to figure out what his agenda was. Now we know and it’s tragic for our country.”
To combat the border crisis, state governors have been taking matters into their own hands due to a lack of initiative from the federal government. Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared an “invasion” at his state’s southern border, started building his own border wall, and has been shipping illegal immigrants to liberal areas around the country.
Noem commented on these actions in Texas:
“It’s not a governor’s job. It’s the federal government’s job to secure our border. Greg Abbott is doing what he needs to do down there, spending billions of dollars a year to secure the border because of the failure of the Biden Administration.
So, you talk about them building a tent down there on the border. I think that that is just showing the agenda that the federal government has. This isn’t unexpected. This isn’t something that they didn’t foresee happening.
This is on purpose. This is on purpose that they are destroying our border because they want to remake this country into something that is not built on the trust that our Founders gave people themselves.
Listen, personal responsibility was something that our Founders wanted to give to the people of this country. They wanted them to be able to defend themselves, to make choices for their families, to be able to have liberty and freedom. They didn’t envision what Joe Biden wants for this country.”
The governor emphasized:
“The Biden administration is doing this on purpose. I think it’s time that the American people, whether you are Republican, Democrat, Independent or not even political that you, recognize that what this president is doing is trying to remake America.”
Fortunately for the U.S. southern border, the Supreme Court ruled that the Biden administration must keep Title 42 in place; a pandemic era Trump policy that prevented asylum seekers from entering the country.
