Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs expressed frustration with the federal government’s response to the southern border crisis in a letter to President Biden, demanding reimbursement of over $512 million for the costs incurred due to federal inaction.

She emphasized the burden placed on Arizona and urged the reassignment of National Guard members to assist in reopening the Lukeville Port of Entry.

Hobbs highlighted the humanitarian crisis and risks to safety and commerce resulting from the port’s closure, reiterating her commitment to keeping Arizonans safe despite federal inaction. (Trending: Top Democrat Loses In Historic Landslide)

“Today, I sent a letter to President Biden calling on him to reassign National Guard members to assist in its reopening, as well as reimburse the $512,529,333 federal border inaction has cost us,” Hobbs wrote.

“For far too long, Arizona has continued to bear the burden of federal inaction in managing our southern border,” the letter added.

“The recent decision to close the Lukeville Port of Entry has led to an unmitigated humanitarian crisis in the area and has put Arizona’s safety and commerce at risk.”

“Further, to the extent it is necessary, I am requesting that additional National Guard members currently on federal active duty orders be reassigned to Arizona to assist U.S. Customs and Border Protection to reopen the Lukeville Port of Entry,” Hobbs said.

“As long as I’m Governor, I will do everything I can to keep Arizonans safe — even when the federal government fails to act.”
