Iowa Senator and former service member Joni Ernst is blasting Joe Biden’s failed border policies after military families trying to attend the Army-Navy game in Massachusetts were unable to find lodging due to an influx in illegal migrant housing.
“It’s clear: these cancellations are due to your administration’s decision to ship illegal immigrants across the country to sanctuary cities at taxpayers’ expense,” Ernst wrote in the letter.
“Now, due to your untenable border crisis which has allowed nearly eight million illegal immigrants entry into the country, veterans and future servicemembers and their families will be unable to attend this year,” she said.
Massachusetts is a “right to shelter” state.
“It is flatly unacceptable for our veterans and military families to be displaced because of your administration’s failure to secure our southern border. Military families who have scrimped and saved to be able to afford a trip to the Army-Navy game should not have to compete with illegal immigrants for hotel room space,” Ernst wrote.
“Not only is this game a recruitment mechanism, those of us who have served know it is truly an opportunity to showcase America’s finest–the incredible young servicemembers who have stepped forward to serve their country–the Corps of Cadets and Brigade of Midshipmen,” Ernst wrote. “The Army-Navy Game gives attendees–many of whom are veterans themselves–the opportunity to honor the next generation of our fighting men and women, as well as our nation.”
“Simply put, your administration’s mismanagement at the border is causing American cities to be overrun and vital resources to be stretched beyond capacity. These problems will continue to persist until you finally take your obligation to secure our border seriously,” Ernst wrote.
