“While I share President Biden’s urgency in fixing our broken immigration system, what I didn’t hear tonight was a plan to address the immediate crisis at the border,” said Arizona’s Democratic Senator Mark Kelly in a written statement referring to President Biden’s state of the union address.
Joe Biden failed to mention the border crisis in his address, instead he asked Congress to pass “a comprehensive immigration bill.”
“If you believe we need to secure the border, pass it because it has a lot of money for high-tech border security,” urged Biden.
“I will continue holding this administration accountable to deliver the resources and staffing necessary for a humane, orderly process as we work to improve border security, support local economies, and fix our immigration system,” continued Kelly in his statement.
Kyrsten Sinema, another Democrat Senator from Arizona told Fox News that she wants to see “more action from the administration to address the border crisis and support Arizona border communities.”
