    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) bucked many in his party over the immigration crisis on the U.S. southern border during an interview this week, saying that the U.S. needs "the wall and a lot more."

    Manchin made the remarks during a Fox News interview after anchor Bret Baier asked him about Vice President Kamala Harris' claim that the border was "secure."

    "It's wrong. She's dead wrong on that. And I have said this," Manchin said. "If we don't secure it - I voted every time for the wall. But we need the wall and a lot more - technology, more agents. The 2013 immigration bill was still the best piece of legislation I think that we have ever had before us. We couldn't get it passed through the Republican House at that time because of some politics involved there."

    "And they - the amnesty, people were shouting the word amnesty," he continued. "That piece of legislation would have corrected everything we have going wrong. But, for anybody - the vice president, president, anybody - to say our borders are secured, that is not accurate. I have been there. It's wrong."

    In a recent letter addressed to President Joe Biden, the Arizona Sheriff's Association slammed the administration for its attitude regarding illegal immigration and expressed their lack of confidence in CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus.

    The letter cited the fact that curbing the number of illegal immigrants and illicit drugs crossing the border had been a priority for law enforcement for decades.

    "Unfortunately, the current administration and Commissioner Magnus do not appear to share the priority and the effects are being felt in Arizona and across the country," the letter charged.

    Turning to the drug problem exacerbated by the porous nature of current border enforcement, the letter stated, "Massive amounts of highly lethal drugs are being moved across the border and peddled to our children. Fentanyl is a near ubiquitous ingredient in illegal drugs being distributed today and is causing the deaths of countless individuals and destroying families at a rapid pace."

    After noting that violent crime is rising throughout the country, the letter segued to Magnus and the Biden administration, noting, "Since Commissioner Magnus was appointed nearly nine months ago, we have continued to see an influx of illegal immigrants and illicit drugs cross our Southern border. What we have not seen is an increased partnership from the federal government including CBP to assist local law enforcement in preventing this activity."

    "Border security is one of the core missions of the CBP and we feel that the effort being put towards addressing this mission is woefully inadequate," the letter stated.

    Hank Berrien contributed to this report.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
