Joe Biden Won't Explain Why the Border Is Wide Open

"You see there's a gap between the leadership of the Democrat party And most Americans who are Democrats just as there is for the Republicans particularly in the Democrat party side Joe Biden takes no responsibility for anything Including a wide open border And you know what ladies and gentlemen neither Joe Biden nor his party nor anybody else has explained in any rational or substantive way why that border is wide open They won't tell us Why is the border wide open Why is it open to all comers Including people who commit felonies Why is it open When they know what's going on in that border is anarchy Crime ridden anarchy When they know they're violating our immigration laws which are very specific about who comes and who doesn't come and how people come Why is the border wide open So drugs can flow into this country Fentanyl and other drugs killing at a record pace Mostly young Americans Sex trafficking on the southern border and elsewhere like we've never seen in this country before Drug cartels getting placed holds in our major cities as a result again of the borders being wide open Joe Biden and his party have effectively effectively defunded the border patrol and ice through the back door with their policies

Tim Parrish and Sebastian Discuss the 'Southern Strategy'

"You said something fascinating about you reacted very, very powerfully to an individual who mentioned the southern strategy. And you kind of exploded. It's BS. It's all ancient. I had your back and I said, yes, it is rubbish. This idea that dinesh d'souza is masterfully blasted out of the water as well that the GOP flipped and the racism thing in America just magically changed overnight. Could you unpack just how the internal logic of the sovereign strategy makes no sense. It makes no sense whatsoever. And the reason why I exploded on the gentleman and I went over into apologize later because I did explode. It's frustrating. And it's also frustrating that our party won't do anything about it. It won't push back on this idea. Thank God for doing extra shoes and prager U and these groups that are out pushing back on this stuff and writing these wrongs, but the idea that the south became the Republican party and they became more they became less racist or more racist as it became more Republican is just ridiculous. I mean, if you think about it logically, which doesn't happen a lot on that side. As the Republicans who were dominating the north moved into the south, the south would have become less racist, but that's not what happened. It's the exact opposite. And so you have to sit there and go, wait a second, this doesn't make any sense.

Just because of the enormous just variety of the state from the north to the beaches and the south, but talk about the different mood in California as opposed to, as opposed to say Florida. Well, did I say I agree with you? California Southern California, in my opinion, is one of the once was one of the most beautiful parts in the world. In terms of everything, whether a beach is mountains, just stunning and in my, you know, I've been here a long time, and I've seen it devolve into just an absolute cesspool and it's unfortunate because I always get confused by people that vote the same way and expect a different result.

The far left don't want to seem to talk about this. And it's coming through our southern border, Sam. I mean, obviously the border patrol and others, they have, they have seized dozens of these fentanyl pills that just takes a little itty bit. Peculiar. And so their season this by the by the tons quite honestly. And it seems like the administration doesn't even think about it. It's like, well, I guess this is just a normal day.

Dems Are Hoping a New Vote on Abortion Will Help Them Win in November

"The political stuff for just a moment, I am sure you saw the news. The vote that everybody is very, very upset about, well, those on the left. And the Democrats are now saying they intend to use this and Senate abortion rights vote to quote galvanize their supporters ahead of midterms. The quote was from one of these congressional Democrats. Today we start the march towards the November elections. So the problem with all of this and regardless of where you stand on this issue is just that the horrible political theater. That's involved. I mean, they're just, you know, topping of the bit, the Democrats anxious to politicize this and really stir up negative emotions from so many people so that they can get them to the ballot boxes in November because I think they know things really are that bad. With the economy with what we saw in Afghanistan, the tragedy that there's not a lot we can do, but I think a lot of people feel frustrated. We haven't been able to be more helpful overseas. And then, of course, the border. Oh, and did I forget there was a new study that came out today saying that more people than ever before died from drug overdoses. And you can't tell me that it doesn't have a little something to do with the amount of drugs that are coming into this country from our southern border. There's a lot of reasons and we can go into them another time. But it's part of it, right? So you got the border mess, you get the economic mess, you get the international mess, and so what do they do? They say, oh, well, we're going to, we're going to now use this to galvanize and excite our voters. For November. It was a very close vote, 49, 51, I think we all knew it would fail. It was certainly expected to fail, but you see this now becomes a political hot item for them, and they are going to maximize the return as much as possible. I get it. It's a political place Washington D.C.. And they know that they have nothing else to run on. I mean, they really don't, because

And we're in that situation right now where literally I've got friends with newborns that newborns or babies, and they can't find baby formula. They're like, you got grandma's circling, you know, hitting up targets and walmarts across the Midwest across Pennsylvania. And we can't feed our own children. We can't prevent incursions on our own southern border. But we're going to spend 40 billion of your dollars and send it overseas to a war in Eurasia where there is no American direct national interest. That's your government. Right. That's exactly right.

Kayleigh McEnany, Emily Compagno React to Leftists Targeting Justices

"Let's listen to Kayleigh McEnany and Emily yesterday on Fox News react to the news that leftist crazed, unhinged, vicious, radical, wildly radical activists are marching on the homes of the conservative justices of the Supreme Court. A very dangerous campaign of intimidation and harassment may now be about to unfold in the fight over roe V wade, as the radical left looks to target the conservative justices on the Supreme Court after the leak draft opinion on abortion. And while security fencing is put up around where they work, but not continuing on our southern border, there's that. Now we have just learned there's an increased police presence outside of the justices home. And here's why. Some left wing groups are actually directing protesters to show up at the doorsteps of 6 quote extremists justices. Even publishing the street names where they live with their families and now police are bracing for violence. Emily, it's two groups that are pushing people to go to the homes of Supreme Court Justices. One called Rus cinis, another called shutdown D.C.. They want to candlelight vigil. Join us to a march to justice Kavanaugh's and Robert's homes. Another one saying urging protesters to go to the homes of the 6 extremist justices. You can't make this up. No, and my issue with this, in addition to the publishing of their addresses, is that the amplification of that. And then the galvanizing of people to show up at their doors, right? You can protest all you want in those public places, but we all remember what happened to federal judge Esther Salas in 2020 when her son was shot dead on their doorstep because of a disgruntled

"Is of course it was a a price on their heads and i think the similar story with jagua trying to get rid of them because of the threat to farmers and such like so. Is that to some extent resolved so that you can go ahead and repopulate. Well yeah i think so. I mean either protected now when the government was sponsoring hunters to shoot jaguar and wolves and other large wildlife bears there was no protections but now the jaguars an endangered species so it has the protection of the endangered species act. And so it's a crime. Now to shoot a jaguar that said of course. I'm sure there will be people that are not so keen about jaguars because they want to live in the old ways but I don't know how much you know you and your listeners. Following american politics the politics of the us south west is changing a lot as we saw in the last election and comes with urbanization with people moving to that part of the world to retire and bringing their politics with them. And so i think the times are changing in those mountains. Arizona went democrat. that's right. They elected a democratic senator for the first time for a long time john mccain country quite extraordinary but for me. This is a long-term idea. That's what i think. Scientists so important is that we work hard to try and get our facts right and to make our reasoning clear. And we do that because we're trying to play the long game. I'm having conversations all the time with my colleagues fish and wildlife service. Us force service to try and convince them. And i'm having a hard time convincing them. Oh really yeah. Well one of the arguments which is very interesting and that this has been going on for some time about top carnivores in other words the killers the wolves and the story in some of the national parks. If you bring the wolves back. They reduced the number of elk or moose which are otherwise ravaging most of the trees the vegetation. And what you're doing is restoring by the top predator. How things used to be in the kind of balance rather than vegetarians everywhere crunching the bush land. Yeah well that's right you know it's not just actual hunting but it's also the way they changed the landscape the landscape of fair as the biologist call it and you can see this so clearly in yellowstone national park you know when wolves were brought back to yellowstone it completely changed the way that the elk we're using the landscape out of the riparian zones because those were dangerous vegetation came back and when he came back all kinds of other riparian species came back they really are a dramatic influence on the landscapes where they live we don't know exactly what that influence will look like for jaguars because it's been more than fifty years since there was a jaguar to had had that influence so it's a bit of an experiment to think they know what to do when they get that. Oh i think they'll do fine. There's a model of reintroduction in the barra in northern argentina which is sort of similar situation where they identified a large block of habitat. They found enough support. The local people on the local politicians that they went forward and then they raised animals cubs without any human contact in reintroduction centers than those were the animals that they released back into the wild after they'd learned to hunt on their own and those animals are doing really well. When you look at jagua what strikes you most about the general appearance. They're just so muscular and many years ago. I was in santa cruz. Bolivia and i had a data myself. And i went to the zoo and they had a outline cougar in an enclosure. Right next to a jaguar and people often think outlines jaguars the these large cats but they are completely different from each other. Jaguars are the earliest hunky. As large cat you've ever seen they just sort of ripple with strength it's so extrordinary. Yeah what you've convinced. Hope you convince the other people there you know at at the wildlife conservation society in for the long run. Thank you so much erik. Thank you robin a pleasure talking to you eric.

"And now in two thousand twenty one in the united states they're trying to bring back jaguars to where they once roamed freely. Meet eric sanderson of the bronx zoo. Well my first question might seem a bit eccentric. What is the word. manna hata. What does that mean to you. Well that's the name the indigenous name for manhattan and my book. I wrote at the island of many hills because there were a lot of hills on manhattan formerly. Which aren't there anymore. Although linguists came out with the paper and he said it was the place where the people went to collect. Strong would make bows. So they're strong. Would to make bows yes. What happened to the hills by the way the mountains. They leveled them early on in eighteen. Eleven adopted this plan and laid out the street grid. That new york is so famous for and it's completely rectangular grid. Put the graph paper down over the heart of the city and they took out anything that was in the way including many of the hills in lower manhattan at least until they got up the northern part of the island where the bedrock is much taller and much harder bennett. It wasn't worth the effort. Interestingly after the commissioner's plan there was a series of maps made in eighteen twenty eighteen twenty one eighteen twenty two and these maps they show the future street grid. His job was to survey in the street grid. And then they're called the farm maps because you can see the farms that were there at the time which of course have no respect to the grid and then he also marked the old streams that they were going to have to fill in and rocks that were in the middle of the streets that they were going to have to blow up so you look at these maps and you see an idea of the past and you see the reality at the time which were these farms and then you see this vision of the future. That in some parts of the city wasn't executed for another hundred years. But that's the city that we live in and then of course there's the bronx zoo your connected to the zoo. You not yes. The wildlife conservation society runs the bronx zoo and then your aquarium and three other zoos in new york although i'm affiliated with our global conservation programs that works in sixty countries around the world on wildlife conservation. Take me back. What was it like in terms of wildlife. Let's say five hundred years ago in. Manna hata and around bronx. Wow it was. It was actually really amazing. I grew up in california. I moved to new york to take this job at the zoo. Twenty two years ago and i thought the east coast was just a lot of four hours little salt marsh on the edge. But once i got here. I became very interested in what the original ecology was. Like if you could use these maps than these computer techniques and try and figure out what it was like and what we found blew everybody away myself included in manhattan had fifty five different ecosystem types over a thousand different species. Were living there. Maybe up to eighteen hundred different kinds. There were these low people indigenous people who've been living in the landscape for eight thousand years. This truly robust and productive ecosystems so robust and productive that argued in my book that if the country had been settled from the west to the east instead of the east of the west by the time we got into new york. Then maybe we would have said. Well maybe we need some national parks and maybe they would have set aside manhattan island national park. What a wonderful idea. And how many of those original beasts left still there. Well the interesting by some measures new york city has more biodiversity today than it did. Four hundred years ago because there've been so many introductions of various kinds of species central park is a globally famous place to watch birds and you can see three hundred and fifty species over the course of the year in central park. There's only been a few species have gone extinct. We've mostly lost or the large mammals you know. Wolves black bears elk for a long time. You wouldn't see dolphins whales in the harbor but recently have been coming back to one of the things that really draws me to cities. Is this sort of idea that the constantly evolving constantly changing based on the desires of the people that live there and our generation is green in the city is to bring the ecosystems back to make the city's screen is possible and that's having benefits for wildlife. Okay let's talk about jaguars now. They were removed from most of the wild areas. Something like fifty years ago. I reminded me somehow something that goes back ninety years in australian that it's the final scene tasmanian tiger. We said goodbye in about the nineteen thirties. Which is very sad. Why jaguars for you well. Jaguars are the most magnificent creature. I've ever had a chance to see i mean. They're just the personification of strength and robustness. But also the ability to walk quietly into be hidden away to be so close to you that you can't see them but somehow they're atmosphere permeates the environment around them. They're also completely. Fascinated is an ecological species. They have this very broad distribution they live from. What's not the united states down into what is now. Argentina and many many different habitat types not just tropical forest but grasslands wetlands some really dry ecosystems. Really extraordinary and. They're the top predator wherever they live in the americas america's great cat the jaguar. How many left though if you're trying to restore them they spas well density varies a lot. Different parts of the range. So there's certainly parts of the amazon that have a lot of jaguars left but in the northern range. They're very very few population. That self to the united states is in sonora mexico about eighty kilometers south of the us border but that population has been sending mail jaguars that have been coming up even with all the activity on the us. Mexico border crossed the border into the united states. And that's created a huge amount of excitement and interest and actually led me into exploring the history of the jaguar. You're not be surprised. I did a project with some colleagues where we tried to document all the observations that ever been made of jaguars in the territory. That's now the united states in found that they were all over new mexico and arizona but also these observations in california colorado oklahoma texas louisiana. Even these much more difficult. Observations from virginia and north carolina. They had a much wider distribution than the past than people. Give them credit for today. That was possible. What's the plan now. Well the official plan is from the us. Fish and wildlife service and their plan is jaguars. Stop at the. I ten freeway. Which is a major interstate freeway that goes across the southern tier of the country and when they created their plan in two thousand eighteen they somewhat unilaterally decided that that is the northern edge of jaguars in the americas and some politics and i politely disagree with that point and point out the both the history but also that if you expand your vision a little bit to the north you see that there's this enormous block of habitat in the mountains of central arizona and mexico eighty two thousand square kilometers the size of the state of south carolina in american terms a truly enormous area mostly in government. Hands is mostly. Us force service lands and then importantly to large indian reservations white mountain apache in san carlos apache reservations. Yeah the reason. I mentioned the thylacine. Tasmanian tiger is of course it was a a price on their heads and i think the similar story with jagua trying to get rid of them because of the threat to farmers and such.

Late but is done list. It's horrible. I'm advising the mothers. If you don't want to have your children taken from you don't come here. She's said figure something else out and John. That's from a report that you put on NPR in November got about thirty seconds left here to go. What's your final thought for us on how we should be considering what's actually happening on the border there? Now. Will the the family separation policy was suspended by the Trump administration after a huge, national international outcry.

"I was in Germany. We looked at borders and refugees and immigration, and you know, Angela Merkel allowed more than a million migrants to cross border from Austria, and it caused a huge upset in her country. And there's an enormous debate going on there that parallels are debate about how many immigrants do you? Let in how many benefits do you give them? Do. We let them a stay in Germany and work. Do we if they don't have legitimate claims for protection from fleeing persecution? Do we throw them out again? It's the exact same debate that we're having Germany has borders to people are allowed to come to a nation's borders in much of the world and ask for protection, this international law. And so the people that are coming. To the United States. Many of them are are doing this and asking for asylum. They're not just, you know, running willy nilly into the country, and you know, trying to avoid the border patrol, and the other thing that I wanted to mention is actually this country does need migrant labor. I do the reporting. I mean, I've been to the trailer factories in Paris, Texas in northeast, Texas, where they just is had a big labor raid a couple of months ago, and they arrested a whole lot of undocumented immigrants who were welding together, these big industrial steel trailers that you pull behind pickups, and nobody else will do that work up there. And you could say the same thing about people who pick crops or who process chickens just goes across the country like this. We absolutely need skilled labor as Peter said. But there's a whole lot of work that you would assistance are not doing and just ask the employers. Well, John hang on here for Justice. Because in the last couple of minutes of the show. I wanted to just move over to Arizona here for a moment and get a view as to what's happening there. And joining us now is Mary Jo Pitt souls. She's with us from Phoenix. He state government and child welfare reporter for the Zona Republic. She reported on a video that the Republic obtained that showed migrant children being dragged pushed and slapped in a migrant children's shelter in young town Arezzo Anna, Mary Jo pixel welcome to on point. Hello. How are you? I'm doing. Well. So first of all tell us very briefly about this video that the Zona Republic obtained what did it show where did this happen? This happened in a shelter operated by south west key in a suburb, just northwest of Phoenix and in mid-september recording the video their security cameras captured a couple of staffers sort of pushing and dragging and shoving some very recalcitrant kids through a conference room from one room into another. Well, we don't have a lot of context for it. Because south west cay won't talk about it. But we are aware of it because the video is released to the state health authorities which licensed the facility, and we went to them and did a records a question in got the video to get to give us a look at what's going on inside the shelters. Forgive me for interrupting but just for some context here. I'm seeing that southwest key is housing more than fifteen hundred migrant children in Arizona, California and Texas thirteen of their facilities are in Arizona. It's down to eleven harshly because of the events that involve this incident, southwest key agreed close to of its shelter. So they are down to eleven facilities, and they have a four hundred and fifty million dollar contract with the federal government under the unaccompanied alien children program. But but the state of Arizona wrote a very strongly worded letter to southwest key, basically, alleging recusing them of not really caring for the welfare of the children under their purview. What what's that all about? We started to look through a lot of the inspection reports at the state had done. And we we noted and pointed out to the agency that they were getting cited repeatedly for not doing. Fingerprint checks background checks on the employee's in a timely manner. The director of the health department finally cracked down and said, look, I want you to go out southwest key and redefine the clearances all of your employees and get it done by this date. They didn't they didn't meet the deadline, and and she director blew up and said, okay, we're gonna we're gonna suspend operations, unless you, you know, you know, unless you come to the table, and we're going to work out some kind of a settlement agreement, which is what resulted.

They're not just, you know, running willy nilly into the country, and you know, trying to avoid the border patrol, and the other thing that I wanted to mention is actually this country does need migrant labor. I do the reporting. I mean, I've been to the trailer factories in Paris, Texas in northeast, Texas, where they just is had a big labor raid a couple of months ago, and they arrested a whole lot of undocumented immigrants who were welding together, these big industrial steel trailers that you pull behind pickups, and nobody else will do that work up there. And you could say the same thing about people who pick crops or who process chickens just goes across the country like this. We absolutely need skilled labor as Peter said. But there's a whole lot of work that you would assistance are not doing and just ask the employers. Well, John hang on here for Justice. Because in the last couple of minutes of the show. I wanted to just move over to Arizona here for a moment and get a view as to what's happening there. And joining us now is Mary Jo Pitt souls. She's with us from Phoenix. He state government and child welfare reporter for the Zona Republic. She reported on a video that the Republic obtained that showed migrant children being dragged pushed and slapped in a migrant children's shelter in young town Arezzo Anna, Mary Jo pixel welcome to on point. Hello. How are you? I'm doing. Well. So first of all tell us very briefly about this video that the Zona Republic obtained what did it show where did this happen? This happened in a shelter operated by south west key in a suburb, just northwest of Phoenix and in mid-september recording the video their security cameras captured a couple of staffers sort of pushing and dragging and shoving some very recalcitrant kids through a conference room from one room into another. Well, we don't have a lot of context for it. Because south west cay won't talk about it. But we are aware of it because the video is released to the state health authorities which licensed the facility, and we went to them and did a records a question in got the video to get to give us a look at what's going on inside the shelters. Forgive me for interrupting but just for some context here. I'm seeing that southwest key is housing more than fifteen hundred migrant children in Arizona, California and Texas thirteen of their facilities are in Arizona. It's down to eleven harshly because of the events that involve this incident, southwest key agreed close to of its shelter. So they are down to eleven facilities, and they have a four hundred and fifty million dollar contract with the federal government under the unaccompanied alien children program. But but the state of Arizona wrote a very strongly worded letter to southwest key, basically, alleging recusing them of not really caring for the welfare of the children under their purview. What what's that all about? We started to look through a lot of the inspection reports at the state had done. And we we noted and pointed out to the agency that they were getting cited repeatedly for not doing. Fingerprint checks background checks on the employee's in a timely manner. The director of the health department finally cracked down and said, look, I want you to go out southwest key and redefine the clearances all of your employees and get it done by this date. They didn't they didn't meet the deadline, and and she director blew up and said, okay, we're gonna we're gonna suspend operations, unless you, you know, you know, unless you come to the table, and we're going to work out some kind of a settlement agreement, which is what resulted.

"Children or to to help to deal with these migrant families. I live on the border. And I've see I've seen how the typical profile of somebody coming across as change in twenty thirty years ago. It was a young man that was coming over to come work. Get money send the money back to the family go back and then come back again. I was like a temporary guest worker back and say that now we are now seeing family units sometimes company kids are coming over here. So the profile is change. So we gotta ask ourselves what's happening in those countries. So back in two thousand fourteen thousand fifteen we added I sit on the appropriations we added, and I pushed very hard for this to put seven hundred and fifty million dollars a year to help the Central American country. So we can go ahead and provide security create more jobs over there, so less people will come over here. What's happening right now out of that money. That's been appropriated. There's about eight hundred million dollars. So are still in the pipeline that the administer. Hasn't let go they cut down the funding for those countries. If there's a problem with those three countries reprimanded salvo on du-ri's, they we need to keep working with those countries. So less people come over here. Finally, the last thing we did back in twenty fifteen. We added eighty million dollars to help Mexico secure the southern border. There were stopping at that time two hundred twenty thousand people a year that were coming over to the US that border patrol would've never seen because there were stopped over there. So again, my my point is says either you play defense on the one yard line called the US Mexico border where we spent eighteen billion dollars a year. Oh, we play defense on their twenty yard line and put a little bit of money in Central America. Mexico to address some of those core issues. And the dates are giving me if I heard you correctly or appropriations that were made her the during the Obama administration. Are you saying that the the money wasn't adequately or appropriate -ly used even under the Obama administration? What I'm saying well part of. Yeah, they took a long time to get that. But every year we started off at seven hundred fifty million dollars for Central America under the Obama administration. And we have a lot of meetings with those countries with the president's where the ambassadors we finally agreed to where the money was going to be spent where those three countries then when the Trump administration came in. They lowered that down from seven hundred fifty dollars seven hundred fifty million dollars a year. They lowered it down to five hundred ninety five million dollars. Even though we wanted more, but the Republicans control everything now, we're going to change that now we're in but under the under the Trump administration. There is money. That's been obligated for the last couple of years. That's already obligated. I mean, it has already been appropriated. And there's. About eight hundred million dollars in the pipeline that we can get over to them. And I've talked to the president on doers. I've talked to other embassador from those three countries. And they're saying when are we going to get the resources we're trying to address the situation here, but there's eight hundred million dollars is still stuck. So what I did is I put a spending plan, so they can appropriate. Oh, so they can release that money all those resources down to those areas and address the economy and the security issues in those three a Central American countries. And And last last question question congressman. congressman again about so so that's the big picture about dealing as you said with the issues in in the Central American countries themselves, but once again with regarding the families that are already in the family units that are already here at the border. Do Democrats have a plan to to assist or or to alleviate this problem? Yes. And in fact, in appropriations, you know, I've added language there to an and resources to make sure that if anybody's detained that we take care of those people that families are not separated and to get immigration judges. So they can get the hearings soon as possible. So people will know if they're gonna stay or go back, depending on their asylum or credible. Fear of they've done that. I mean, so we've done that..

"And we have no way to promptly return them back home to their country. That's the president on Tuesday Representative queer, I mean, the the the administration has asked. Yes, of course, for five billion dollars for a border wall or fence, but in their appropriations requests, they've also said, look, we would like to have eight hundred million dollars to respond to these urgent humanitarian needs of of that they're coming with taking all these migrants. Into into custody. Is there a way I know Democrats are adamantly opposed to any funding for a border wall. But is there a way to appropriate that at least eight hundred million the deejay says it needs to to cope with the situation at the border. Absolutely. And we, you know, we we done bad where we provided money for for space and for medical officers. We've done a lot of that in the past. But the problem is is that the president doesn't really want to hear any of that he just wants to focus on the border wall. Because he his campaign promise is it was to build a wall and the other part of campaign promise was to let Mexico pay for it. So that's what he's obsessed with. That's what he's focusing in. He he thinks that the only border security is is by having a wom, and he's he's just wrong. And what we need to do is look at personnel technology. Make sure we have the right practices because you know, a lot of times. The the drug organizations and the smuggling organizations for change tactics that we need to change tactics there, and and that's what we need to focus on. But let me give you an example. What's happening right now border patrol under the Obama administration. We were at high at twenty one thousand four hundred and something almost twenty one thousand five hundred right now, we're short about two thousand men and women in border patrol whereabout nineteen thousand four hundred. So what does the administration do? They put out a contract for two hundred ninety seven million dollars to help them hire border patrol where they just awarded out of that contract. They just let go fourteen point eight million dollars. You don't have any border patrol. They hire with that. With a fourteen point eight two of them. Now, I don't know if one of them has captain America, or what's so special. But if you're going to spend fourteen point eight million dollars. I'd rather spend that money on retention bonuses. So we can hire and retain those border patrol. And that's what we need to focus on technology. A lot of that technology the arrows nets drones the cameras that the military us if it works for the military, it should work for us. So again, we gotta be smart on how we do this. Finally, I can ask sure just say this. I stop drugs. He talked about stopping drugs. Most drugs will come through ports of entry not in between ports. So if you wanna stop drugs modernize those ports of entry put the personnel put the Ray machines. And that's how you're going to stop drugs. So let's focus for a second more on on the influx of migrant families right in in November. There was the highest number ever more than twenty thousand or my family units. I should say I mean, what I understand the Democrats including you are very critical of the administration's treatment of these families. But what is the democratic plan or solution to stem the influx of parents with with.
