Speaking with fervor to Stuart Varney on Fox Business’ Varney & Co, Rep. Roy did not mince words, accusing President Joe Biden of turning a blind eye to the southern border and strengthening the grip of Mexican drug cartels.
Roy held nothing back, declaring, “He is allowing it to become completely run by the cartels.”
His frustration was palpable as he urged viewers to watch “Sound of Freedom,” a crowdfunded film that sheds light on the harrowing world of child sex trafficking.
“Go see what’s happening in the world. Go see who has the power. Go see who is abusing these young girls, these young children,” Roy urged passionately. “We’re allowing that to happen on our watch,” he said further.
With determination to turn the situation around, Roy asserted, “No more.” He vehemently criticized the Department of Homeland Security’s lawsuit against Governor Abbott, who is striving to stem the tide of illegal immigration.
“Governor Abbott is being sued — sued! — by the Department of Homeland Security, and by this administration because he dares to try to stop the flow at our border; to stop the death, the fentanyl; to stop the poisoning, to stop armed intruders.
“These cartels are emboldened and they are empowered by a president who does not care about our southern border,” he added.
“The president and this administration can go straight to hell,” Roy went on to proclaim, his words echoing the frustration of many Republicans.
Addressing his fellow Republicans, Roy called for solidarity in the face of what he deemed a government at odds with the American people. “We are not going to fund a government that’s perpetuating the lawlessness and empowering cartels, allowing fentanyl to kill Americans,” he declared.
The battle for secure borders, he insisted, is a struggle worth fighting, pushing back against “Republicans who are giving lip service to it [yet] for years have been supporting it because they want cheap labor.”
As the United States grapples with unprecedented levels of illegal immigration, Roy’s voice rang clear: “We need to recontrol our border.” “We have an obligation to have a secure border,” he added.
