(READ) Tennessee senators: ‘Why are 600 illegal immigrants resettling in Tennessee?’

According Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, nearly 600 “noncitizens”—from Guatemala, Venezuela, Honduras, and Mexico—intend to travel to the Nashville, Tennessee area to resettle there.

Senators from Tennessee Marsha Blackburn (R) and Bill Hagerty (R) have written Mayorkas stating the Biden border crisis has turned every town into a border town and Tennesseans will not stand for it.

We write today to express deep concern about recent reports indicating that nearly 600 migrants—from Guatemala, Venezuela, Honduras, and Mexico—intend to travel to the Nashville area.  Specifically, the City of Franklin was recently notified by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that these immigrants, following their release from DHS custody, will likely settle in Nashville, Franklin, Murfreesboro, and the surrounding communities.

While this is not surprising given this administration’s continued utilization of the disastrous catch-and-release policy, the people of Tennessee should not have to bear the brunt of your failure to secure our border.

This troubling news comes as Biden’s border crisis continues to worsen by the day under your watch. Since President Biden took office, there have been over 8.5 million migrant encounters at our southern border.

Last December, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered more than 302,000 migrants along our southern border—the most encounters in a single month we have seen in nearly two decades. Worse still, CBP has encountered 49 individuals on the terrorist watchlist in this fiscal year alone.

The Biden administration is single-handedly responsible for the humanitarian and national security crisis at our southern border, but you are forcing the American people to bear the consequences.

This administration’s policy of releasing migrants into communities across the country is a dangerous and irresponsible attempt to hide the true extent of the Biden border crisis, and it is making every town in America less safe.

Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.)

  1. I am glad these senators are attempting to protect their borders.
    In the future, perhaps they would consider using correct language in public statements and in letters defining illegal immigrants.
    After watching your segment on Words in today’s Full Measure, Senators Blackburn and Hagerty should consider using the more appropriate term “illegal immigrants” rather than “migrants”, formerly known as seasonal farm workers. Another word definition change recently promoted.
    As citizens, we should not abide by definition changes that politicize and propagandize our language to suit the elite making decisions, as well as change law language consequences. Let us all make the effort to fight these changes by continuing to use correct terms/definitions, not the lobbied changes made to our dictionaries. And as mentioned in your interesting interview, we can submit our own comments to the dictionary company on definitions and changes. Hopefully, our senators will follow suit.

  2. Tennessee Volunteer?

    This is not ‘Remember The Alamo!’
    Volunteer to extend a helping hand to those who need it. You might not like the fact that they chose to flee to this country in any way they could to avoid being in a desperate situation . You might not like them. But, ‘love your enemies.’–MLK Don’t do what Abbott did by turning a blind eye, and making things someone else’s responsibility. Do the Senators asking about 600 migrants look to bus them to the Northern Ghettos, too? Isn’t it still self-evident that all men created equal?

    Pass a ‘Good Bi-Partisan Border Security Bill’ when you see one. Don’t reject the opportunity to address the problem, and then blame it on someone else, when you chose to vote it down. Sounds like Senate Republicans and House Republicans have a few of their own issues to work out with themselves.
