“The Administration knows that border security is one of the biggest issues in Arizona so an announcement like this especially at this time makes sense to try to help one of their own.”
Joe “I am the Democratic Party” Biden vowed that under his administration not one inch of the border wall would be constructed, so it was quite a turn around when the administration announced it would be building a portion of the wall in Arizona.
This put Biden’s press secretary in a sticky spot because she infamously claimed President Trump’s wall was “bigoted.”
.@realDonaldTrump where are the pesos for your bigoted wall?

.@pdoocy destroys the Biden Admin's hypocrisy for building a border wall in AZ.
KJP: We're not finishing the wall. We're fixing the mess of the previous Admin
Doocy: So by filling in the wall, is this racist? You said it was when Trump did it. pic.twitter.com/FWXoZuA63p

Still a bigoted wall, or no? https://t.co/MdGKn9QWjF

So why the sudden rush to get parts of the border wall completed in Arizona? The president for the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, suggests that it could be to help Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly (D) with his reelection bid in November.
The timing of the Biden administration’s announcement to complete open segments of the border wall near Yuma, Arizona, could be to “help one of their own,” said Brandon Judd, president for the National Border Patrol Council, as Sen. Mark Kelly, (D-AZ), faces a tough re-election fight amid criticism from the GOP over border security and immigration.
Department of Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas announced Thursday that he had approved construction to close several gaps in the border wall in the Yuma sector that have become highly-trafficked spots for border-crossers. Mayorkas said the gaps were a safety risk for migrants due to the proximity to the Morelos Dam.
Kelly for months has been advocating for approval to close those gaps, and celebrated the announcement in a statement Thursday, taking credit for finally being able to “secure a commitment from the administration to get this done,” according to his office.
Never mind that Kelly votes with the America Last Biden Democrats every chance he gets. If this gesture is intended to help Kelly, he’ll have to answer to his constituents for his support and votes for Biden’s open borders policies.
Fox News continues:
The timing of the DHS announcement comes just three months before Kelly faces a challenging re-election in Arizona where the GOP is hoping to pick up a seat in the Senate.
Judd told Fox News Digital that he wouldn’t be surprised if the decision was politically-motivated, and called the announcement “nothing more than smoke and mirrors.”
“The Administration knows that border security is one of the biggest issues in Arizona so an announcement like this especially at this time makes sense to try to help one of their own. But if people will do the proper research they will find that filling in the gaps with the current situation in that particular area does not help improve border security,” Judd said.
. . . . “Mark Kelly doesn’t care about the border — he has rubberstamped Biden’s open border agenda every step of the way. Arizonans will vote him out come November,” RNC spokesperson Will O’Grady told Fox News Digital Friday.
Closing the Yuma border wall gaps are only part of the issue facing the region, Judd told Fox News: “The current issue, especially in Yuma is not one that can be solved by infrastructure, it can only be solved by legislation or policy.”
Kelly, of course, could propose legislation that would shut down the border, but according to the NRSC, he’s doing the exact opposite (while touting minor disagreements with Biden as his weak “maverick” impersonation).
Instead of working to secure the border and protect Arizona communities, Mark Kelly has:
- Funded sanctuary cities
- Sent taxpayer-funded stimulus checks to illegal immigrants
- Defunded efforts to secure the Southern Border
- Voted against prioritizing the arrest of illegal immigrants charged with violent crimes
- Voted against the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy
- Had staffers transport illegal migrants across Arizona
Mark Kelly does not support improving border security – he supports open borders and his border crisis.
