The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) hosted a rally on the Arizona-Mexico border on Friday, June 25 calling for the Biden administration to take measures to end the nation’s border and humanitarian crisis.
The three-hour rally occurred along the southern border wall near Hereford, Arizona, and featured more than 25 guest speakers including former acting director of U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) Tom Homan, former acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, Arizona state lawmakers, sheriffs, victims of illegal alien crime, and more.
Several hundred concerned Americans and activists from across the country attended the rally to voice their concerns about the Biden Border Crisis and its effects on the country. Participants traveled to the remote location and sat in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees to make their points heard.
Las Vegas talk radio host Heidi Harris served as the MC of the event, while National Recording Artist Dave Bray provided music.
Under the Biden administration, border apprehensions have increased for five consecutive months and remain at levels not seen in more than 20 years. These groups of patriotic Americans decided this border chaos was unacceptable and that something needed to be done.
Participants demanded that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas be removed from his position. Other demands included:
- Completing construction of the border wall (which American taxpayers have already paid for).
- Reinstating the Migrant Protection Protocols which deterred asylum abuse by requiring migrants to remain in Mexico while their claims were considered.
- Ending catch-and-release policies.
- Protecting the missions of the Border Patrol and ICE.
- Maintaining/Restoring Title 42 to protect the American public from new, and more lethal strains of COVID.
FAIR’s inaugural southern border rally can only be described as a success. It marked the beginning of a grassroots movement to force the president to end the crisis he and his administration created and will likely be the first of many rallies.
