Gosar Blasts Biden for Worst November Border Apprehensions in the History of USA

Washington, December 16, 2021 | Jessica Lycos (202-379-6385)

PRESCOTT, AZ – Representative Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) issued the following statement after the Biden administration released new data today showing more than 173,000 illegal aliens were apprehended crossing the southern border in November.

“Another 173,000 lawbreakers crossed the southern border last month, shattering any other previous November in the history of our great nation. Mr. Biden’s open border policies are an open invitation to criminals and drug cartels to cross into our country unchecked.   More illegal aliens have now crossed the border in the last three months than in all of President Trump’s final year in office.

The crisis has reached a new level and Yuma, Arizona in my district is ground zero, as hundreds of illegal aliens cross into Yuma daily and even more are staging along the border waiting to simply walk across. Yuma is under siege because Mr. Biden and Border Czar Kamala Harris are nowhere to be found.

The first priority of the President of the United States is to protect the people of America.  Sadly, Joe Biden puts Americans last and he has lost the trust of its citizens,” concluded Congressman Gosar.
