Congresswoman Yvette Herrell (NM-02) delivered this week’s Republican Address on the crisis at our southern border. There have been over 1.2 million illegal border crossings so far under President Biden, and border czar Vice President Kamala Harris has no plan to support our Border Patrol.

“Democrats would rather ignore Joe Biden’s humanitarian disaster than give up their dream of open borders,” Congresswoman Herrell says. “But Americans won’t be distracted. Not by the media or the radical left. And neither will the Republican Party.”

“Hi, I’m Congresswoman Yvette Herrell of New Mexico and I am proud to deliver this week’s Republican Address.

“The district I represent is right on the border with Mexico.
I have seen the Biden Border Crisis firsthand.

“So have many families in Southern New Mexico, who feel totally abandoned by their government and their President. Unfortunately, there is a fundamental division in Washington.

“Republicans believe that our government has a duty to protect our citizens and secure our border. We believe that our government has a responsibility to know who illegally crosses our border, and then enforce the law.

“That is what it means to be a country and protect a homeland. But Democrats do not believe that Americans have the right to protect their home, or even question the surge of thousands of noncitizens into their country.

“Instead, they would rather demonize the brave men and women of Border Patrol and ICE and hide from accountability. Democrats would rather ignore Joe Biden’s humanitarian disaster than give up their dream of open borders.

“But Americans won’t be distracted. Not by the media or the radical left. And neither will the Republican Party.

“We stand for our workers.

“We stand for law enforcement.

“We stand for safe communities.

“We stand for borders.

“We stand… for America.”
