Rep. Arrington Says US ‘Needs More’ States To Send Law Enforcement Help To Southern Border

Rep. Jodey Arrington of Texas made an appearance on the “Chris Salcedo Show” on Newsmax Thursday where he gave Florida high praise for sending more law enforcement help to aid with the border crisis before going on to predict, “We’re going to see more.”

During his interview, Arrington was ecstatic that Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis became the first to answer the call for help included in a letter from Texas and Arizona governors to the 48 other states in the country requesting additional law enforcement staff to help provide patrols for the states’ border with Mexico.

”I like what I’m seeing, and we need to see more of it,” Arrington said during his chat with Chris Salcedo. ”We introduced [a resolution] last week, basically, we’re saying, ‘States: you have sovereign powers to defend your borders and protect your people.”’

”The states have that inherent right of self defense, so they should be exercising these powers,” he went on to add. ”So they don’t need our legislation. They don’t need Congress to act. Their commander in chief has failed to provide for the common defense … It’s time to secure the border, enforce the laws and do that through the powers, constitutionally protected, of our sovereign states. So I think you’re going to see more of this.”

Arrington hit hard at Vice President Kamala Harris’ role as border czar, charging she ”doesn’t want to own” the crisis at the southern border.

”I’m not surprised that Kamala Harris isn’t wanting to have this conversation, nor am I surprised that she is not going to the border,” he stated during the conversation. ”She doesn’t want to own this. She isn’t just placating the radical open border left. She is the radical open border left.

”We shouldn’t be surprised. We should only be disappointed and embarrassed that Joe Biden has made her the border czar,” Arrington said.

Arrington also reported that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s appearance before the House Ways and Means Committee was ”tough.” Yellen went before the panel for a grilling on the Biden administration’s 2022 budget.

We questioned Secretary Yellen about the rationale and logic behind the Biden economic policies that are taking us the opposite direction of prosperity and recovery,” he went on to add.

”We’re giving the keys to growth and prosperity to other countries through the numerous policies, starting with paying people to be on unemployment rather than to return to work,” he added, pointing out that ”about half small businesses can’t hire everybody. Many are going to go away and never come back.”

”For every American, you’ve got this assault on oil and gas, which is driving the price at the pump up,” he argued. ”And now [Democrats] want to put on a big tax hike … It was a difficult hearing for [Yellen], but it’s difficult for every American to understand where they’re going with this when we’re seeing unemployment go up, inflation go up.”

It doesn’t seem like there’s a single thing the Biden administration has done since the beginning that makes any sort of sense. That’s because President Biden and his minions are all about implementing a specific agenda and laying the infrastructure down for the radical transformation of the United States, rather than helping people.
