MTG suggests secession for border security.

Rep. ‍Marjorie Taylor Greene Calls for Secession‍ Amid Border⁣ Crisis

Rep. Marjorie‌ Taylor Greene⁤ (R-GA) made a bold statement on‌ Monday, urging states‌ to ⁢consider⁤ seceding from the United States due to what⁢ she calls an “invasion” at ‍the southern border. In a passionate ⁢social media ⁢post, she ‍expressed her concern over the Biden ​administration’s handling of the cartel-led human and drug trafficking crisis.

“If the ​Biden admin refuses to‌ stop ⁤the invasion of cartel-led human and drug trafficking ⁣into our country, states should consider seceding from the union. From Texas to New York City to every town in America, we are drowning from ⁤Biden’s traitorous America last border policies.”

Greene’s Push for Change

This is⁢ not the first time Rep.​ Greene has advocated for significant changes within the union. She has previously called‌ for a “national divorce” ⁢between states that⁤ lean Democrat and those that⁤ lean Republican. In a recent social media post,⁤ she highlighted the ‌need to prevent the same issues that have plagued states like California from affecting other ⁣great states like Florida.

Strains ‌on Resources and Crowding

Greene’s⁢ comments come at a time when cities across the country are grappling with‌ the strain on resources and overcrowding caused by the influx of illegal immigrants. New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently announced a ⁤5%‍ budget cut across all agencies to address ⁢the costs associated with the city’s growing immigrant population.

“We are ⁣in the middle of a humanitarian crisis involving asylum-seekers,​ a crisis ‍that will cost our city $12 ⁤billion over three fiscal years,” Adams stated. “While our compassion is limitless, our resources are not.”

Chicago‌ is also ⁤facing a similar situation, with Mayor Brandon Johnson estimating that the surge of immigrants will cost the‌ city approximately $255 million ‌by the end‌ of 2023.

It’s important to note that only a fraction of the immigrants who have crossed the southern‍ border ⁤and been released have been transported to cities. Texas, through Operation Lone Star, ‌has transported under 40,000 immigrants to “sanctuary” locations, leaving ​approximately 2 million immigrants whose whereabouts are unknown.

Criticism of the Biden ⁢Administration

President Joe Biden has faced criticism for his handling ​of the border crisis. He has only visited the southern border once since taking‌ office, relying on Vice⁢ President Kamala Harris to ​lead the administration’s approach. Republicans have voiced their dissatisfaction with Harris’s performance, arguing ‍that a more hands-on approach, including frequent trips to the ​border, is necessary.

In May, the ‌Biden administration‍ ended Title 42, a pandemic-era policy that allowed for the turning away of immigrants from​ countries with a high presence of COVID-19. This decision faced opposition from Republicans and border-state ‌Democrats, who called for a more thought-out plan rather than an abrupt ​end to the policy.

As the debate over border security and immigration continues, it remains ⁣to be ⁣seen how states⁣ and‍ the federal government will address the ongoing challenges.
