Sullivan says Biden’s border is a ‘dereliction of duty’

U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan is the cosponsor of a bill that would redirect $15 billion from the IRS enforcement account to the crisis on the southern border, where just last month, more than 260,000 illegal immigrants poured over a border that has been abandoned by the Biden Administration.

That’s more than 8,300 illegals per day penetrating the border without any accountability, and the flood of migrants has not let up in September.

On Monday, Sullivan released the following statement regarding the record-breaking number of illegal border crossings on the southern border this August.

“There are no excuses for the Biden administration’s disastrous handling of our southern border. The numbers released by Customs and Border Protection reveal more than 200,000 illegal encounters last month ALONE. It is a humanitarian crisis. It is a national security crisis. It is a health crisis. Americans nationwide, including Alaskans, are impacted by this crisis.

“This dereliction of duty by President Biden is allowing thousands of criminals, including human and drug traffickers, to pour into our country. We are already dealing with a scourge of drug overdoses nationwide—largely driven by fentanyl. Alaska is no exception. My state experienced the largest percent increase in drug overdose deaths in the country. Until we get our wide-open border under control—and I’ve been there to see it—this problem will only get worse under President Biden’s inaction.

“I’m calling on President Biden, yet again, to do his job and secure our southern border. Even Democrats are finally becoming outraged at this failure to act. The President needs to step up, enforce the law, and put an end to this catastrophe.”

The president early in his administration assigned the border problem to Vice President Kamala Harris, who was supposed to coordinate diplomacy with Mexico and stem the tide of humanity pouring into the United States. She has failed in every measure.

Sen. Sullivan’s Securing Our Border Act would redirect $15 billion from IRS enforcement funds that were included in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) to instead be spent on border security. The legislation is endorsed by the National Border Patrol Council, which represents approximately 18,000 agents and support personnel, many of which are assigned to the U.S. Border Patrol.

CBP is the largest law enforcement agency in the country, and more than 85 percent of the agency’s Border Patrol agents (approximately 16,878 of 19,648) are concentrated on the southern border. The agents are outnumbered 7-to-1 by illegal immigrants alone.

Sullivan visited the southern border in 2021 with U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), John Thune (R-S.D.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), and Mike Braun (R-Ind.).

In 2022, all 50 Democrats blocked Sullivan’s amendment to the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) that would have directed $500 million to be allocated to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to secure the southern border. The funds were instead earmarked for “sustainability and environmental” programs at the Department of Homeland Security.

  1. Sully:

    Stop voting to support the endless, pointless, and dangerous boondoggle in Ukraine! Stop sending our money there.

  2. It was so hot today in Texas that the border patrol had to cut the Constantine wire because women and children were suffering and needed to be let in the country. Processed and let go
    Dan Sullivan is a conflagration.

    • Not so witty. Air drop ’em some plastic water. Keep the concertina wire & finish the Wall. If they walked here, they can walk somewhere else.

    • “Processed and let go”
      At least they were able to process these individuals which is of utmost importance.
      They must maintain contact information with every single person entering in order for them to receive $2200/month in exchange for filling out voter registration info and be able to make an informed decision on who to vote for in the upcoming 2024 Selection.
      “We must protect our Democracy at all cost” Yelled Joe during his inauguration and in nearly every single speech he has mumbled since. We musnt let these valuable votes escape into the jungle.

  3. Dereliction of duty? How about treason …to the security of the US, Sullivan? Drugs and criminals pouring into our country with no limits. We might as well be fighting a war with our enemies and laying down our weapons and giving up our territory. We need a new Senator who is really from Alaska.

    • He needs to look at what has migrated to Alaska. Get in your own backyard first there Dan. He doesn’t want you to know he’s ignoring it now. So he distracts and diverts with this field trip. Bow to your masters mr.dan.

  4. Sullivan put him in office by validating the stolen election………..so it’s just as much Sullivan’s Border as it is Biden’s. Uniparty of Democans/Repubicrats.

  5. I agree, it’s not only a “Dereliction of Duty” but also:
    … “Willful Intent”
    … “Malpractice”
    … “Reckless Abrogation of One’s Responsibilities”
    … “Shameful Failure to Perform One’s Obligation”

    AND(!!!), it’s not only Biden but also Kamala Harris too!

    FINALLY(!!!), let us NEVER forget that Daddy’s Little Princess contributed to this morass, and completely complicit, she’s got dirty hands too.

  6. Maybe Danny should have the conversation with the leader of the senate ? I mean really what has Mitch done to stem the flow ? Absolutely nothing ! Should not be senate leader as he is compromised by business dealings with Chinese and his shipping company . What a bunch of turds !

  7. Will the funds be used to usher in people or to build a wall and provide security? The bill should include how the funds are to be used; Myorkas will continue his dereliction of duty if given the opportunity.

  8. The IRS estimates over $800 Million in lost revenue due to tax cheating, if Sen Sullivan actually supports a balanced budget he should want more IRS funding

    • Frank, what’s $800 MILLION when these AHs are spending 100 times that in Ukraine. C’mon man! You’re an engineer and certainly understand the Pareto principle.

  9. What Biden is doing is destroying our nation. The constitution that he took an oath to defend requires that he protect us against invasion. Yet we have about 10,000 illegals/criminals/terrorists coming across the border every day. The drugs the cartels are moving in during this invasion kill roughly 70,000 Americans per year. Rapists, murderers, and MS-13 gang members are moving freely across our border along with child sex traffickers- doing incredible damage to our country. Border states and towns are literally being destroyed by the corrupt Biden. But Biden does not care. His plan is to destroy the country- make us into a third world shxxhole because this is what China (who has paid millions to the Bidens) wants. China wants us to be a weak, inward looking country teetering on the edge of civil war and disruption.

    A real shame that so many lefty Americans want our country destroyed.

    • It is a pretty bleak description of our current situation.
      The real scary part is the help He has surrounding him in his death march.
      FBI, DOJ, Huge funding from America hating George Soros, Out of control Military Industrial Complex Eisenhower warned about, Deep State corruption in DC with a very unified Democratic Party nationwide.
      The destruction of America will result in a huge loss of life but sadly will be innocent bystanders caught up in the chaos.
      Look back at the huge numbers of soldiers that sacrificed their lives hanging on to the notion of “Slavery” not really so long ago.

  10. Glad to see Sullivan stepping up. Murkowski and Petola also need to do the same. This is crushing our country and it’s tax payers. We have several doors for legal immigrants. Illegal aliens need to be returned across the Rio Grande.

  11. So Sullivan was one of six GOP turncoats who voted along with Murkowski to install Mayorkas as Biden’s top pick for DHS director. Anyone who can fog a mirror knows the man as a liar extraordinaire. Anyone seeing a Dan Sullivan pattern here? He continually votes for leftist agenda accelerants THEN later issues bold statements opposing whatever happens because of that support. This is the same “conservative” who “couldn’t in good conscience support Donald Trump for President” due to the groping women accusations. A de facto vote for HRC in 2016. Also voted for Interior Secretary Haaland and then later pulls the same garbage and makes bold statements. Too transparent. Do some more tricks Dan. We see through you.

    • Selective amnesia ! When the media has your back , no worries ! Add election cheating and Karl Roves huge election fund , presto another swamper ! GOP ( Grifters , Opportunists and prostitutes ) .

  12. Meanwhile, Brandon has been selling the fence materials purchased-but-not-installed by the previous administration for pennies on the dollar. At some point, the USA will buy those materials back for dollars on the penny. What a great investment!

    D-bags! Every one of them. (D doesn’t stand for dirt!)
