Staples Statement Following Trip to Southern Border

 

ALPHARETTA, GA – Mallory Staples, candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, traveled to McAllen, Texas last weekend, where she toured the Southern border and learned from experts on border law enforcement and election integrity. The event she attended was organized by the Take Action Tour, a group that seeks to shed light on the domestic security and humanitarian crisis created by Biden and Harris at our Southern Border.

 

“My trip to the Southern border was an incredibly eye-opening experience. There’s simply no way for anyone to understand the situation occurring on our Southern border without going there to witness the humanitarian crisis first hand. It’s no wonder Kamala Harris refuses to visit the Southern border, she has already given up on solving this crisis and believes that by allowing more illegal immigrants she hopes to bolster her voting base as she prepares for a failed run for the presidency in 2024. 

 

While the radical left in Washington D.C. continues to ignore Americans affected by our border crisis, I went down and witnessed the grip the Mexican cartels have on the smuggling industry and witnessed countless illegal immigrants attempting to cross the river day and night. What I witnessed was a daunting reality for our Customs and Border Protection who are overworked and underappreciated. I was heartbroken to hear that they have had 32 suicides within their ranks, displaying just how mentally taxing it can be to stand guard at our Southern border. 

 

We’ve also seen the effects of this out-of-control border in our own communities, with criminals shipping dangerous drugs like fentanyl that are causing adults and children to overdose at rates we haven’t seen in decades. We must put an end to the crisis at our border, and the drug abuse crisis plaguing our communities and taking our sons and daughters from us. This trip only reinforced who I’m fighting for and what must be done to save our country from the radical left. I intend to take this knowledge with me along the campaign trail and to Washington when we take back the House this November so that I can be an effective legislator from day one.”
