Sen. Blackburn takes trip to US-Mexico border on Sunday
Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) made a stop at the US/Mexico border on Sunday.
Blackburn in a statement prior to her visit said in part she wanted to see the crisis at the border firsthand and further claimed that President Joe Biden’s open border agenda has created that crisis. Blackburn and Pinal Co., AZ Sheriff Mark Lamb discussed in a video that the border crisis isn’t about immigration but about drug trafficking and human trafficking into the US that impacts area communities in addition to impacts to the environment due to large amounts of trash left behind.
I’m on the ground in Pinal County with @sherifflamb1 @PinalCSO getting a firsthand view of how the border crisis is impacting communities. Cartels are using human smugglers as mules to take drugs across the border and push them into our neighborhoods. pic.twitter.com/AcepA3Uct5— Sen. Marsha Blackburn (@MarshaBlackburn) March 21, 2021
