Sen. Mark Kelly (D -Ariz.) is campaigning with Sen. Alex Padilla (D-Calif.) to ramp up the illegal alien invasion amid the Democrat-engineered US-Mexico border crisis.
Kelly, the Democrat incumbent who will face off against Republican Blake Masters on Nov. 8, and Padilla, an ardent proponent of amnesty for illegal aliens, campaigned at an event titled “South Phoenix Canvass Launch with Senator Alex Padilla & Senator Mark Kelly,” Breitbart News reports.
Padilla recently sponsored legislation Citizenship for Essential Workers Act to “expand a pathway to permanency for millions of long-term US residents.”
“The very first bill Padilla introduced as a US Senator would create a pathway to citizenship for the immigrant essential workers,” states a press release regarding the measure.
As Padilla and Kelly rally campaign to bolster illegal immigration, Mexican human trafficking cartels are making a fortune smuggling illegal aliens into America.
“The US Department of Homeland Security reports that the Mexican cartels’ income from smuggling illegal aliens into America has soared from $500 million in 2018 to $13 billion this year — up 2,500 percent. If these criminal organizations merged into a corporation, their 2022 gross revenues would rival that of — are you sitting down? — Fox News Corporation. Fox News Channel’s parent company earned $12.91 billion in the year ended June 30, 2021, and gleaned $13.97 billion 12 months later.,” Fox News reports.
“Border Patrol agents apprehended 951,568 illegal aliens during President Donald J. Trump’s final 19 months in office (July 1, 2019, through Jan. 31, 2021 – including Biden’s first 11 days). In Biden’s first full 19 months as president (Feb. 1, 2021, through Aug. 31, 2022), Border Patrol encountered a staggering 3,588,877 illegals – up a sickening 377 percent,” the publication notes.
A record 5.5 million illegal aliens have been encountered on the southern border since Joe Biden has taken office.
At least 2.4 million illegal aliens have entered the US undetected or were permitted to settle in the country, according to an Oct. 25 report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
Immigration and border security are critical issues of the Arizona Senat race between Kelly and Master.
Nearly 1000 aliens cross illegally into the United States daily at the US-Mexico border in Yuma, Arizona port of entry, where the Trump wall ends.
According to a recent report by the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona, many of the immigrants who have entered the US illegally have been convicted of killing Americans.
Since taking office in 2020, Kelly has repeatedly voted against border security, three times in 2021 alone, Breitbart News reports:
In February of 2021, Kelly voted against an amendment that would have kept the Biden administration from being able to cancel existing border wall contracts.
Kelly has also voted to end Title 42, which allows the government to suspend entry of immigrants into the United States for reasons of public safety. Kelly was previously critical of the Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42, saying that “it’s going to be a crisis.”
Additionally, the Democrat Senator from Arizona voted against a measure that would have prohibited the Internal Revenue Service from hiring any new agents until the U.S. Border Patrol doubled its forces. Meanwhile, the deadly fentanyl crisis has gotten worse in Arizona.
But to secure reelection ahead of the midterms, Kelly is lying to voters claiming he has fought for border security.
“I’ve been focused on the border since day one on the job. I am down there all the time. I was on the phone this week just with Mayor Nicholls of Yuma… talking about what more we need for border patrol and immigration,” the Arizona Democrat said during an Oct. 2 debate against Masters. “We’re working to raise border patrol pay by 18 percent. I’ve got legislation to do that. I’ve been focused on the border since day one.”
“When Democrats are wrong, like on the border, I call them out on it, because I’m always going to stick up for Arizona,” he added.
Masters warns Kelly has acquired the nickname “Cartel Kelly” in Arizona as his policies primarily garner support among Mexican drug cartels.
“If the Mexican narco-terrorists and the drug cartels could vote in this election, they would all vote for Mark Kelly,” Masters told Fox News on Wednesday.
“I’m endorsed by the Border Patrol, and I’m proud of that. Mark Kelly, he’s endorsed by the Mexican drug cartel. That’s the choice that Arizonans have in this election,” he added. “He promises to be an independent, but then he goes to D.C., and he’s the most left-wing senator that we have. This guy votes more in line with the Democratic Party than even Bernie Sanders.”
