HELENA, Montana- Montana Republican Party Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt released the following statement regarding Vice President Harris’s long overdue visit to the southern border:
“Kamala Harris’s trip to the border was nothing but a photo-op. The Vice President stopped in El Paso, Texas—a thousand miles from where the actual border crisis is happening. And let’s keep in mind, the announcement of her visit came shortly after President Trump shared he would be visiting the border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott,” said Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt.
“The Biden Administration’s efforts to sweep this crisis under the rug is truly a disgrace to our country and to those suffering at the hand of their harmful immigration policies—or lack thereof. We have seen the devastating effects of the unsecured southern border right here in Montana. Meth, fentanyl, and other harmful drugs are being smuggled across the border into our communities and are tearing Montana families apart.
“I am grateful for Senator Daines, Congressman Rosendale, Attorney General Knudsen, and Governor Gianforte for their work to shed light on this devastating crisis, secure the southern border, and protect Montana’s communities. The Democrats need to stop making what’s happening at the southern border a partisan issues and act now.”
Just last month, Montana Senator Jon Tester failed to provide relief to the illegal-immigration crisis by siding with his far-left allies and voting against construction of the border wall.
