FAIR: WE THE PEOPLE Demand That Biden Secure the Border
Hundreds of Citizens, Law Enforcement Officials, Victims of Illegal Alien Crime and Others Join FAIR to Rally at the Border in Sierra Vista, Arizona, on Friday, June 25
(June 25, 2021, Washington, D.C.) — Hundreds of citizen activists, sheriffs from around the country, victims of illegal alien crime, and others will be joining with the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) for a rally at the border today to demand that the Biden-Harris administration fulfill its duty to secure our borders and protect the American people. Record levels of illegal alien apprehension at the border in May – more than 180,000 – and untold numbers who successfully enter the country, present a clear and present danger to national security, public health, and the general welfare of the American public. The message of the rally is: It. Must. Stop. Now.
“American citizens will be showing up at the border, in the scorching Arizona heat, to make it clear to President Biden and the media that the ‘root cause’ of this crisis is this administration’s deliberate sabotage of border security and immigration enforcement,” declared Dan Stein, president of FAIR. “This administration has sent a clear signal to people all across the globe that everyone will be allowed to enter our country illegally, that interior enforcement has ceased, and that they will be showered with benefits by American taxpayers after they arrive. President Biden and his administration created this crisis, and we, the people, demand that he ends it.”
Rally participants will also demand that Alejandro Mayorkas be removed from his position as secretary of Homeland Security. “The responsibility for the crisis ultimately rests with Joe Biden. But the architect of the administration’s policies is Secretary Mayorkas who is willfully in violation of his oath to secure the homeland and protect the security of the American people. Rather than working to end the crisis, he is facilitating it,” Stein charged.
Among the demands of the rally participants:
- Alejandro Mayorkas must resign or be fired.
- The federal government must complete construction of the border wall (which American taxpayers have already paid for).
- Reinstate the Migrant Protection Protocols which deterred asylum abuse by requiring migrants to remain in Mexico while their claims were considered.
- End catch-and-release policies.
- Take the shackles off the Border Patrol and ICE. Let them do their jobs!
- Maintain/Restore Title 42 to protect the American public from new, and more lethal strains of COVID.
“The public is becoming more alarmed, by the day, at the reckless policies of this administration that endanger the American public and migrants alike. This rally is just the beginning of a grassroots movement to force the president to end the crisis he created,” concluded Stein.
WHO: Former acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tom Homan, former acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, former Special Agent in Charge Derek Maltz, sheriffs, victims of illegal alien crime, legislators, and concerned Americans.
WHAT: Arizona rally in the Sierra Vista area on the border calling for an end to the Biden Border Crisis and for the removal of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
WHEN: Friday, June 25 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm MDT.
