Tiffany Shedd Statement on Biden’s State of the Union Address

ELOY, AZ – Tiffany Shedd, a Republican candidate for Attorney General of Arizona, issued the following statement today regarding Joe Biden’s State of the Union address: 

“Joe Biden made it clear during tonight’s State of the Union that he will continue to pursue the same failed policies that have created a crisis at our southern border. 

“What we are witnessing is not about immigration. It is an invasion by human traffickers, drug smugglers, and the cartels that employ them, and I am watching it happen on my family farm ninety miles from the border. 

“Biden’s failure to secure our border has resulted in a humanitarian crisis the likes of which America and Arizona have never seen. Women are being systematically raped by traffickers, drug smugglers’ fentanyl is the number one cause of death for Americans ages eighteen to forty-five, and American families are falling victim to cartel violence. 

“Rather than directing his attention towards protecting Americans and stopping this crisis, Biden has enabled it while also pursuing an agenda of unconstitutional mandates and gun control that threaten our rights guaranteed by the US Constitution. 

“Now, more than ever, it is incumbent upon states to protect Americans from the border invasion and from the federal government’s assaults on our liberties. Not only does Arizona have the legal authority to secure our border, we also have a moral and ethical duty to our citizens to do it. As Attorney General, I will not sit by while a multibillion-dollar criminal enterprise floods our state with drugs, violence, and illegal immigrants.
