Governor Lee & 23 GOP Governors Ask Biden For ‘Honest, Accurate’ Information On Illegal Immigration

Sep 20, 2023 | Political News

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, along with 23 other Republican governors, said illegal immigration burdens every state and asked President Joe Biden for “honest” and “accurate” information about the situation.

A letter sent Tuesday blamed Biden’s policies for a surge in illegal crossings at the southern border.

“States are on the front lines, working around-the-clock responding to the effects of this crisis: shelters are full, food pantries empty, law enforcement strained, and aid workers exhausted,” the letter said. “As governors, we call on you to provide honest, accurate, detailed information on where the migrants admitted at the southern border are being relocated in the United States, in addition to comprehensive data on asylum claim timelines and qualification rates, and successful deportations. We ask for this information immediately, but also regularly as the crisis at the southern border continues.”
