Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema: The border ‘is a crisis…we all know it’

Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema said in a radio interview Friday that the situation on the Southern Border is clearly “a crisis.”

“The reality is that this is a crisis,” said Sinema. “We all know it and the federal government must do more to address this surge of migrants who are coming to the border with increasing numbers each year.”

“We’re looking at numbers this year that are the highest numbers of crossings that we’ve seen in 20 years in Arizona,” she said. It was first reported by Hot Air.

The Arizona Senator spoke directly to BIden and his team, according to the report.

“What I’m waiting for…is for the administration to take bold action to actually address these concerns,” she said.

She said smaller towns across Arizona are seeing migrants dropped off with nowhere to go. Moreover, the situation is also at similar, if not worse, crisis levels in Texas and California as well. Sara Carter has been reporting from the border for the past several months and recently returned from a trip to Tijuana, where nearly 2,000 migrants are waiting in a make-shift tent encampment hoping to enter the U.S. illegally. The encampment is made up of people from all over the world and the situation is becoming extremely dangerous for the children and the most vulnerable attempting to enter the U.S. illegally.

“Literally the mayor is putting them in his vehicle and driving them to Tucson or Phoenix to get them to shelter. That’s not acceptable and that’s what I’ve communicated,” the Arizona senator said.

Overdose death in IN apartment building leads officers to 13 migrants, mostly children, in basement squalor

13 illegal aliens — most of them children — were reportedly living in an apartment building basement in Indiana, only found because of an overdose death. Officers of the Hammond Police Department were called to investigate the death of a resident in the multi-unit building. But during the investigation, officers discovered a large number of migrants were illegally living in the building’s basement, WGN-TV reported.

When officers arrived, they found 13 illegals from Venezuela — including nine children ranging in age from two months to 14 years, and two women and two men — living in the basement space.

Neighbors told the media that they had no idea that so many people were living illegally in the building as they never saw any of them outside the home.

Further investigation revealed that a local member of the clergy had arranged the illegal living quarters for the migrants. The clergy member was not identified publicly and he has not been charged with anything at present.

“The City of Hammond is not open to this type of illegal criminal activity and [they have] placed people in significant harm, including children,” said Hammond Mayor Thomas M. McDermott Jr. who insisted he would hold the clergy member accountable.

It has not yet been reported what the migrants will do, where they will go, and if the city will be on the hook to care for them.

Breitbart News reports that Hammond, Indiana, is just one of many cities in which large numbers of illegals have been found crammed into small spaces in squalid living conditions.

In March, New York City building inspectors discovered an illegal flop house for migrants in which some 70 of them were living in the cramped basement of a Queens furniture store. Through an investigation it was found that the building’s owner, a man named Ebou Sarr, himself an immigrant, was charging the illegals $300 a month to live there.
