Biden’s decision to halt the wall construction on the Mexican border left the area open for cartels, Arizona sheriff claims.
- Sheriff Mark Dannels claims Biden’s decision to halt the border wall construction leaves the area open to cartels.
- Dannels insists that the president’s ruling turns the American-Mexican border into a “crime scene.”
- The Arizona sheriff believes that the decision was politically motivated.
Sheriff Mark Dannels of Cochise County, Arizona, raises concerns that the halting of the border wall construction will leave the area vulnerable to cartels. As per FOX News, the sheriff said that President Biden’s decision has created a “crime scene” at the border.
In an interview with Fox & Friends, Dannels said:
“When President Biden rescinded the emergency order on the southwest border, it stopped resources and stopped construction on our border. As a result of that one area where the fence is not complete, we get five or six groups a day coming across there.”
The sheriff continued:
“This administration owns this decision. And what it’s doing is, is forcing us back to 2019, when we had the largest, what I call, crime scene in the country to include the largest humanitarian situation going on.”
According to the Arizona sheriff, the administration’s decision is politically motivated.
Dannels, who chairs the Bordes Security Committee of the National Sheriffs’ Association, claims that the president’s ruling is a “product of politics.”
“It’s a product of politics within policing. And I’ve always said that they had no business in our business, in the business of policing what we do on this border in our communities.”
The sheriff insisted that the present border situation affects both health and public safety. He explained:
“Nobody is talking about what’s going on at the southwest border when it comes to the health pandemic in this country. And then you look at the public safety aspect of this, it’s upsetting. It’s almost like we’re not part of this country, which is very upsetting.”
