Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., visited the southern border to clean up the toxic garbage that aliens left behind as they illegally crossed into the United States.
“I was just at the border again this past week filling countless bags of trash from all the litter, drugs and crack-pipes dumped on our ground by illegal aliens when they cross our southern border,” he said in a press release.
President Joe Biden’s proposed $2 trillion infrastructure boondoggle includes heavy investment in wasteful green-energy spending projects that will largely benefit Biden’s cronies and campaign donors.
But despite its professed love for the environment, the Biden administration has no interest in stemming illegal immigration, which brings disease, drugs, trash and other pollutants.
Gosar, who regularly visits the border, called on Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to visit the southern border and examine the environmental, humanitarian, health and national-security crises that his policies have created.
“It’s now been more than five weeks since Mr. Biden named Kamala Harris as the Border Czar, yet neither she nor Mr. Biden have visited the border to see first-hand the crisis they created,” Gosar said. “Mr. Biden needs to recognize the crisis, finally visit the border and change his disastrous policies.”
Gosar and dozens of volunteers helped the local government clean up at their overwhelmed ports of entry.
“I am grateful to San Luis Mayor [Gerardo] Sanchez for inviting my staff and me to help clean up the horrific mess,” Gosar said. “Mr. Biden’s open border policies are wrecking our beautiful desert land and unique ecosystems.”
Sanchez supported the decision by Arizona’s Republican Gov. Doug Ducey to declare a state of emergency because of the waves of illegal immigration.
“Whatever support our Border Patrol can get, whatever support our Men in Blue—Customs—get, it helps us,” Sanchez told KAWC in April.
“We’re a small community. We’re not a rich community,” he said at a news conference with Ducey. “We don’t have the number of officers needed for the amount of population that we have. We’re … close to 12, 14 officers.”
Sanchez relies on federal Border Patrol agents to help the city, but they have not had the available resources.
“When I had a meeting with the chief of Border Patrol two weeks ago and we discussed the issue, when I hear that the Border Patrol is being overwhelmed, when I hear they’re not able to be in our streets in our area — that’s worrisome because when our police officers are in deep trouble or they need something, Border Patrol has always been there.”
“And now, we don’t see them. They’re doing something else, and that’s creating a crisis,” he added.
