Twenty-five Republican governors, led by Greg Gianforte, R-Mont., condemned President Joe Biden Tuesday for his persistent inaction at the southern border and his incentivizing of illegal immigration. The governors are demanding transparency on the impacts of the border crisis, including where the government is relocating illegal aliens within the U.S. and how the federal government is processing their asylum applications.

The governors wrote a letter to Biden stating:

As a result of your policies which incentivize illegal immigration, our states are carrying the burden of both the years-long surge in illegal border crossings and cartels’ coordinated trafficking of drugs and human beings. States are on the front lines, working around-the-clock responding to the effects of this crisis: shelters are full, food pantries empty, law enforcement strained, and aid workers exhausted.

The letter presented concerns about the administration’s lack of accountability for the border. The governors highlighted the 5.8 million illegal aliens apprehended at the southern border since Biden’s term began, plus an estimated 1.6 million who have evaded apprehension. Among those apprehended, 244 were on the terrorist watchlist, and even more have evaded capture and now move freely about the U.S., according to the letter.

The governors expressed their concerns for their state economies, which now bear the burden of providing financial, educational, and medical support to the aliens, the costs of which are subject to record levels of inflation under Biden’s economic policies:

As governors, we call on you and your administration to relay immediately accurate, detailed, thorough data and information to the states about who is crossing the southern border illegally, where they are relocating, how the federal government is processing their asylum applications, and whether they are being deported successfully. Without such information, we cannot fulfill our fundamental duties to protect our citizens while providing our communities with appropriate services.

The letter continued:

This is not a partisan issue. Democrat New York City Mayor Eric Adams stated, ‘This is not a New York City problem. This is a national problem. … [Funding for the influx of migrants to New York City is] going to come from our schools’ services. It’s going to come from our streets. It’s going to come from what we provide to children.’ Our fellow governor, Democrat Maura Healey of Massachusetts, declared a state of emergency due to the number of migrants in her state and described the federal government’s mismanagement of immigration as ‘a federal crisis of inaction.’

Despite these statements and actions from Adams and Healey, not a single Democratic governor co-signed the letter.

The governors noted that they cannot afford to respond to the demands the crisis places on their states while the federal government turns a blind eye, considering analysts from the Federation for American Immigration Reform have estimated the annual net cost of illegal immigration is at least $150.7 billion.

The Daily Signal previously reported that some congressional Republicans said they wouldn’t support any spending bill that funds the Department of Homeland Security without action being taken to secure the border.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.

As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”

Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?

Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.

The heart and soul of today’s bizarre, pagan climate-change religion, and the global elites’ strategies for using it to rule all of mankind, is powerfully exposed and illuminated in the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, an issue titled “CULT OF THE CLIMATE APOCALYPSE: The elites’ breathtaking strategy for ruling the world.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
