Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont stated that he offered President Joe Biden the use of the Connecticut Guard to assist in securing the border, but Biden declined the offer.

Lamont, in response to a question about the immigration problem, emphasized that immigration issues are affecting all states, including those not traditionally on the frontlines of immigration.

He highlighted the need to secure the border and mentioned that he and Vermont Governor Phil Scott had offered assistance to President Biden.

“You may need housing for a different reason, immigration. You have people being bused up there — not in the same way that is being — that’s happening here — what do you think of the immigration problem in America, and do you think that blue states, which, for so long, thought this was a not in my backyard issue, now it is?” Andrew Ross Sorkin asked.

“It’s in all of our backyards. Gov. [Phil] Scott (R) from Vermont and myself just wrote a letter together, two states that you don’t think are on the frontlines of immigration, it’s hitting us,” Lamont said.

Lamont also mentioned ongoing efforts to achieve a bipartisan compromise in Congress to address the issue.

“I see what it’s doing to the country. They’ve got to secure the border. I tell President Biden, we’ll send the Connecticut Guard down to help you if that’s what you need to get it done,” he said.

“And what does he tell you back?” Sorkin asked.

“We’re trying to get this bipartisan compromise. You know Congress. Things take a long time. They’ve got to get it done,” Lamont said.
