Illegal Crossing Expected to Surge - Sheriff Lamb Explains Why

March 31, 20242 min read

Arizona Senate candidate and Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb joined Fox News to discuss the escalating border crisis and his Senate campaign. Sheriff Lamb, drawing from his frontline experience, underscored the growing challenges his county faces, including high-speed pursuits and the alarming trend of human smuggling, which he believes will surge with the anticipation of stricter immigration policies should former President Trump win re-election. Here are the key points from the interview:

- Increasing Border Activity: Lamb highlighted a significant rise in pursuits and rescues in his county, emphasizing the daily challenges faced by his team, including a recent incident where a juvenile was found in the trunk of a car.

- Anticipated Surge in Migration: With the 2024 election approaching, Lamb predicts a spike in illegal crossings as smugglers might exploit the current administration's policies, urging immediate action to prevent an overwhelming influx.

- Critique of Current Policies: Lamb blamed the Biden administration for exacerbating the border crisis, dismissing accusations that Republicans are exploiting the situation for political gain. He emphasized that genuine solutions have been hindered by partisan politics and ineffective legislation.

- Call for Immediate Action: Advocating for a change in the narrative and enforcement policies, Lamb pointed to Texas' success in reducing illegal crossings through clear messaging and accountability, suggesting similar strategies could mitigate issues in Arizona.

- Campaign for Senate: Lamb outlined his motivation for running for the U.S. Senate, stressing the need for experienced leadership in Washington to address the border crisis and other national security concerns effectively.

Sheriff Lamb's insights from the front lines of the border crisis underscore the urgency for experienced, decisive leadership in addressing the complexities of immigration policy and national security. His Senate campaign is rooted in a deep understanding of these issues, aiming to bring tangible change to Washington.
