Mayor Chris Riggs of Gila Bend, Arizona recently said that he is declaring a state of emergency due to the ongoing border crisis, pointing the finger at the Biden administration for sending illegal aliens to his town by the bus load.
Riggs sat down with Fox Business for an interview, stating that his town does not have the resources to handle the sheer number of folks who are being brought in, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Border Patrol let us know that they were going to be dropping migrants that had been detained for 72 hours in our town, which we really didn’t understand because we have nothing here,” Riggs said during the interview. “We have no charity organizations that can help, no non-governmental organizations that a lot of the larger cities and towns do have to assist these people.”
The mayor then went on to stated that there are people being bussed into town without access to basic necessities like food or shelter. He said his town, which only has a population of 2,000, hasn’t received a dime of federal, state, or local funding to provide food and housing, or even coronavirus testing for the illegals bussed in.
Riggs then claimed that if they were to test two busloads of these folks per week for a year, it would cost at least $600,000. He also said that violent crime has spiked in town as approximately 20 illegal aliens come into town on a daily basis.
Residents should form human chain roadway blockades at the city limit to stop this foreign invasion.
Time to take the gloves off.
