Kari Lake explains why she believes Biden ‘intentionally’ botched the border

Arizona Republican Kari Lake is bluntly accusing President Biden of creating the border catastrophe to destabilize the country and seize power.

Despite constant attacks from the left and a razor-thin defeat for governor of her state in 2022, Lake has set her sights on getting elected as Arizona’s next senator and she’s not holding anything back as she campaigns. She claims the tsunami of six million illegal immigrants that have crossed our southern border over the last three years was an intentional move by Biden.

“We’re seeing what can happen when you have a president, a person named Joe Biden who came in and actually peeled back an effective border policy that was working,” Lake told the Washington Examiner in an interview. “He did that on day one. And I think he did it intentionally to destabilize our country.”

Lake pointed out the millions of illegal immigrants allowed to inundate the country while the fentanyl epidemic rages out of control, killing Americans. She is laying all of that at Biden’s feet.

“I really believe what we’re seeing now besides this … weapon of mass destruction called fentanyl going across, killing the equivalent — it’d be the equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every day. That’s how many people are dying from fentanyl poisoning,” Lake remarked during the interview. “We’re also seeing, you know, terrorists come in and criminals come into our country. We have allowed our country to be invaded. And basically, we have a foreign army of people that are here in our country right now. Americans are not safe because of it.”

“In fiscal 2023, which ended in September, Border Patrol arrested more than 170 people on the FBI’s terror watch list after they attempted to enter the U.S. from Canada or Mexico illegally. The figure was beyond the single-digit numbers seen in recent years, and many of the suspected or known terrorists have been identified by Border Patrol sources to the Washington Examiner as Colombians who were on watch lists due to civil war-era affiliations,” the Washington Examiner reported.

Lake entered the Arizona senatorial race in mid-October with the support of former President Trump. She is running against Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb on the Republican side for the seat. Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) is running for the position and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) has yet to announce whether she will seek reelection or not in the state.

“Polling from Noble Predictive Insights released in November on a three-way hypothetical matchup had Gallego at 39% support among Arizona registered voters, a 6-point advantage over Lake at 33% support, and an even bigger lead over Sinema, with 29%,” the Washington Examiner noted.

Lake has a 10-step plan for getting illegal immigration under control including a border wall that must be completed “immediately.”

“We have to start by building the wall,” she stated. “We have to stop the bleeding, as they say. If you have a severed artery, you don’t spend your time, money, and energy, you know, mopping up the blood that’s spilling. You spend your immediate energy protecting and stopping the bleeding from that artery. And the Democrats always like to go the other way. They love having these problems. And then they just throw a ton of money at the symptoms and [try] to help with the symptoms rather than [address] the problem.”

Lake believes a wall can be completed quickly.

“President Trump talks about how it could be completed in weeks, like three or four weeks,” she asserted. “Let’s say at the worst case scenario [it] took three months to complete the wall.”

She vowed to automatically deport immigrants who illegally cross the border between land ports of entry as well.

“The remainder of Lake’s 10-prong plan called for more technology surveillance; enforcing various immigration laws to their full extent; hiring hundreds, if not thousands, of immigration judges to hear the 2 million pending cases; building immigration detention facilities on the border to house asylum-seekers rather than release people into the country; utilizing a government program that screens job-seekers; withholding foreign aid to countries that do not help stop illegal immigration to the U.S.; and providing assistance to other countries aimed at taking down cross-border criminal organizations,” the Washington Examiner wrote.
