March 29, 2021
Press Release

Today, Congressman Andy Biggs (AZ-05) sent a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Acting Commissioner Miller, and Chief Patrol Agent Modlin requesting the end of releasing illegal aliens into Arizona communities.

“This Administration can’t acknowledge the border crisis they created, but expect surrounding border communities to take care of the overflow of illegal aliens who are coming in the name of President Biden,” says Congressman Andy Biggs. “DHS should not be shifting the consequences of their horrible policy choices to our communities, which don’t have the resources to care for illegal aliens, and I’m working to stop it.”

The letter can be viewed here, and the meeting with Rep. Andy Biggs, Mayor Chris Riggs of Gila Bend, and Mayor Doug Nichols of Yuma discussing the border crisis’s impact on Arizona communities can be seen here.
