Democratic senator Mark Kelly (Ariz.) in an interview Monday said his party is “not even close” to understanding the complexities of the migrant crisis at the southern border.

“It didn’t take me long to realize that there are a lot of Democrats who don’t understand our southern border and a lot of Republicans who just want to talk about it,” Kelly told the Washington Post. “And I continue to talk to my Republican colleagues about how we have to do more. We have to do more in border security.”

Kelly’s comments come as the Biden administration has overseen an all-time high of 2.4 million border apprehensions during fiscal year 2022. More than one million of the apprehensions resulted in expulsions under Title 42, a rule that gives officials the power to quickly expel migrants. A federal judge struck down the policy last week but delayed its expiration for five weeks. Fifteen attorneys general filed a motion Monday to stop its termination.

“Because invalidation of the Title 42 Orders will directly harm the States, they now seek to intervene to offer a defense of the Title 42 policy so that its validity can be resolved on the merits, rather than through strategic surrender,” according to the motion filed by the attorneys general.

The National Border Patrol Council president Brandon Judd and Arizona Police Association president Justin Harris have criticized Kelly on immigration, stating he has been “completely absent” on border security.

In November 2021, Judd said, “It appears that he’ll give lip service to a topic, but then when push comes to shove, he’s right in step with his party. And we know that as far as his party goes with border security, they’re missing in action.”

“Our country would really benefit from stronger border security and comprehensive immigration reform,” Kelly stated.

Republican State Representative Andy Bigs tweeted, “Since the Biden Administration won’t acknowledge our historic border crisis, states must take matters into their own hands. Arizona must also declare an invasion.”
