Extreme New York Democrat Calls Up National Guard To Help Address The Biden Border Crisis

  • Border Crisis

On Monday, Democratic Governor of New York, Kathy Hochul, announced she needed an additional 150 National Guard members to help address New York’s illegal immigration crisis which is a direct result of Joe Biden’s Far Left open border policies and Extreme Democrats’ “Sanctuary City” policies. This announcement came just days after it was reported that 232,972 illegal immigrants were encountered at the Southern Border, the highest total for August in Department of Homeland Security history.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: House Republicans are the only ones who have passed legislation that would end the Biden border crisis. The Secure the Border Act of 2023 is the strongest border security bill in history and we are working on ensuring its priorities are funded while reining in Biden and Extreme Democrats reckless spending. 


  • Since Joe Biden took office:
  • In August there were 232,972 illegal immigrants encountered at the Southern Border
    • This is a 27% increase from July. 
    • August was the 30th straight month, where monthly illegal immigrant encounters have been higher than even the highest month seen under President Trump. 
  • CBP has seized 25,591 lbs of fentanyl so far in FY23.
    • Already in FY23, fentanyl seizures have greatly surpassed the FY22 seizure total by over 10,000 lbs.
  • 151 people whose names appear on the terrorist watchlist were stopped trying to cross the Southern Border, an all time record
    • This total is more than the encounters in all FY17, FY18, FY19 and FY20 combined
    • There were 98 terror watchlist arrests in all of FY22, which was the previous all time record. 
    • In August, we discovered that a smuggler with ties to ISIS helped migrants enter the United States from Mexico. 
  • Cartels are now making $13 billion a year smuggling illegal immigrants into the United States. 
  • Biden’s Far Left open border policies are to blame for this historic crisis. 
  • Despite this historic crisis Joe Biden has only visited the southern border ONCE, and it was widely panned as nothing more than a photo-op.


  • Force the Biden Administration to restart construction of the border wall.
  • Deploy technology to the Southern and Northern border.
  • Increase the number of Border Patrol agents and provide bonus pay.
  • Require transparency regarding illegal crossings from the Department of Homeland Security.
  • Strengthen current law to protect unaccompanied children from human trafficking.
  • End catch and release.
  • End abuse of executive immigration authority.
  • Strengthen and streamline the asylum process.
