WATCH — Crane to Bartiromo: Biden Admin Wants Nothing To Do with Keeping Americans Safe

“This is why this Administration and my colleagues on the other side infuriate me because they play politics with border security and they put politics above the safety of Americans,” said Rep. Eli Crane (R-AZ) yesterday morning to Maria Bartiromo on Mornings with Maria.

“When I’m sitting in these committee hearings, I can’t even get colleagues on the other side to admit that a wall or a barrier is an important part of a security system. They’ll sit there and say ‘oh yeah, well, people can go over the wall or people can tunnel under the wall.’ And that’s true, Maria, but the fact of the matter is that real security has always been and will always be overlapping deterrence.

“It’s not just a wall by itself–it’s a wall, it’s agents that are well trained, it’s intelligence and so many other things that work in coordination to keep Americans safe. And you can tell this Administration wants nothing to do with keeping Americans safe by their actions and their policy changes.”


On support for Israel in light of the atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists following a breach of the Gaza-Israel border:

“[W]e need to support Israel, we have supported them in the past, we’re doing it right now, and we’ll continue to support them in the future.

“As a Christian, I’m well aware of the Book of Genesis where God says ‘I will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel.’ I think we can continue to support Israel, but here’s the thing Maria–we can do that and make the safety of our own citizens first and primary and that’s something we hardly ever do.

To me, this is one more time where many members of Congress and our leaders look to something else–an atrocity going on in the world and they completely drop the ball and forget about what’s going on here.

They forget about our wide open border, the 240 individuals since Biden took office that have been on the terror watchlist that have been encountered at the southern border, and the 1.5 million got-aways–we don’t know who they are, we don’t know where they’re going, we don’t know what they’re up to. And if you don’t think there’s any lone wolves in there or terrorist cells that have come in through that wide open border, you’re a fool.
