‘Every State Is A Border State’: Visit To Southern Border Highlights Disastrous Impacts Of Democrat Border Policies

YUMA, AZ – Today, a group of Oregon Republican state lawmakers and candidates visited the U.S.-Mexico border in Yuma, Arizona, including Southern Oregon Representatives Christine Goodwin (R-Canyonville), Virgil Osborne (R-Roseburg), Court Boice (R-Gold Beach), Boomer Wright (R-Reedsport), and Senator David Brock Smith (R-Port Orford) to learn more about the impacts of Biden’s border crisis.

“I can confidently speak for the group when I say it was  surreal to see the crisis at the southern border up-close. Since Biden took office, an estimated 15 million migrants from 115 different countries have crossed the border illegally. Many of these men, women, and children are indentured to the cartels. Approximately50% of all fentanyl in the United States comes across the border in Arizona. We cannot afford to sit on the sidelines and do nothing as this crisis gets worse,” said Representative Christine Goodwin.

“We have the technology to secure the border and deter the flow of illegal immigration and drugs into our communities.. We cannot accept losing one more son or daughter. Oregonians are ready for drug free, safe communities,” said Senator David Brock Smith. “Instead of using every tool available, the Biden Administration has actively chosen to make this crisis worse by removing and limiting new technologies. It is incumbent upon the Oregon Legislature to take action where we can. This fact-finding trip has been invaluable in informing our next steps.”

In the afternoon, the group toured Amberly’s Place, a Yuma-based family advocacy center serving victims of child abuse (both physical and sexual), domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and elder abuse. Finally, they met with Robert Trenschel, CEO of the Yuma Regional Medical Center.

“What’s happening at the southern border is causing a massive strain on the limited resources available in border states like Arizona, but also in Oregon, a state over 1,000 miles away. This crisis is costing taxpayers across the United States nearly $1,200 per year. At a time when the cost of living is already staggering for many, it is unacceptable to expect working Americans, including Oregonians, to foot the bill,” said Representative Boomer Wright.

“Today, we learned that the cartels are the ones who really control the border. Border patrol has become mere processors. This is incredibly dangerous for all of us,” said Representative Virgle Osborne. “When Democrats made Oregon a sanctuary state, we laid a welcome mat down for these smugglers, traffickers, and “gotaways”. We must revisit our sanctuary state status and allow local law enforcement to work in coordination with immigration authorities. Our priority must be to protect our state.”

“In Biden’s America, every state  has become a border state. It’s time we take decisive action in order to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all Oregonians,” added Representative Court Boice. “I am hopeful we can use the knowledge we gained on this trip to introduce meaningful legislation that will reduce the impacts of President  Biden’s open border and Democrats’ soft-on-crime agenda.”
