Joe Biden showed up at the border for the first time in 15 years. He has otherwise completely ignored the situation going on down there, and the problem has continued to spiral out of control. Prior to his visit, Sheriff Mark Lamb had called out Joe Biden and told him what he needed to do in order to make the trip successful.
Sheriff Lamb remarked that if Joe Biden fails to address where the government has fallen short on border security, then it will be nothing more than a PR opportunity. He stated emphatically, "I don't want Joe Biden to fail as a president. I don't want America to fail." Lamb then extended an invitation for Biden to visit Pinal County and see firsthand what is happening 50 or 60 miles away from the border.
He explained that his county is located on the I-10 Interstate which is one of the main arteries for Mexican cartels who are trafficking people and drugs into the United States.
In addition to these public comments, Sheriff Lamb has been increasingly vocal about this issue and actively seeking solutions wherever he can find them. As he put it himself, "I'm so passionate about border security. I'm also willing to help however I can." This willingness to stand up and fight crime has had a major impact on his county's ability to combat such criminal activity since they are not directly on the border but still seeing an influx of illegal immigrants entering their area due to cartel influences.
The situation in Pinal County serves as an important reminder about how critical strong border security measures are for keeping criminals out of our country and protecting our safety as citizens of America. Sheriff Mark Lamb has been working diligently over the past few years to do whatever is necessary to protect this part of Arizona from illegal activities related to trafficking humans or drugs coming from Mexico - and he certainly does not plan on slowing down anytime soon.
