Following President Biden’s national address on Wednesday night, Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) echoed conservative opinions and demanded that the Biden Administration make a plan to fix the border crisis.

Biden only briefly addressed immigration, to the disappointment of many.

“On day one of my presidency, I kept my commitment to send a comprehensive immigration bill to the United States Congress,” Biden said in the address. He implored Congress to pass it because it calls to secure the border and create a pathway to citizenship.

On the other hand, Vice President Harris has been the border czar for over a month. But she has not held a single press conference on the matter and hasn’t visited the border to date.

But Sen. Kelly said that’s not enough. “While I share President Biden’s urgency in fixing our broken immigration system,” Kelly said in a press release, “what I didn’t hear tonight was a plan to address the immediate crisis at the border.” He also vowed that he “will continue holding this administration accountable.” Kelly called for a human system to process migrants, stronger borders, and support for local economies.

From personal experience, Sen. Sinema agreed. “I grew up in southern Arizona, so like a lot of Arizonans, I’ve seen firsthand how Arizona, and specifically small communities along the border, pays the price for the federal government’s failure over decades to fix our broken immigration system,” Sinema said in her press release.

Sinema was recently named Chair of the Senate Subcommittee on Government Operations and Border Management. Together with other border state senators, she’s introduced the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act in an effort to improve the federal response to the crisis.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
