Kari Lake slams ‘horror show on our border,’ says Biden cares more about Ukraine

“We have an absolute horror show on our border,” Lake said when Newsmax anchors Bob Sellers and Heather Childers asked the Republican candidate about recent reports of cartels targeting southern border agents.
“We’ve got the narco terrorists in charge down there. We’re losing our border altogether, and we got fentanyl pouring in from China through Mexico into our neighborhoods and into our country, and [Biden] is asleep at the wheel and doesn’t seem to care about the American people. He seems to care more about what’s happening in Ukraine.”
If elected as Arizona’s next governor, Lake promised to take strong action to secure the border, saying the U.S. Constitution, under the guarantee clause, including Article 4.4 and Article 1.10, affords states a large amount of power, regardless of whether the Biden administration chooses to take action.
“We have the ability to protect our own citizens. It’s basically a state’s war powers,” Lake said.
Lake, who is currently leading Democratic Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs in the race for governor, said she would declare an invasion and deploy the Arizona National Guard.
