In a video shared to his Senate
campaign account on ‘X,’ Mark Lamb, Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff, claimed that
“our government” was handing out gift cards, cell phones, and airline tickets
to migrants coming across the southern border.
In the video he posted, Lamb claims:
"When these folks come across and they're processed,
they're being given a cell phone, a plane ticket to anywhere they want to go in
this country—so, probably to a community near you—and a $5,000
Visa card.” He added: "So, while this Christmas season
you're struggling to keep your lights on, while you're struggling to pay your
rent, put Christmas presents under the tree for your kids, we have our
government giving people who came into this country illegally $5,000 gift cards.
That's the truth, folks."
The alleged gift cards are apparently distributed by charities
rather than directly by the government. Lamb stated, "The government can
make the claim that they aren't directly paying for it, because each dollar
first goes from the government to a non-government institution like a charity
before it is used to pay for the illegals.” The government is essentially
laundering taxpayer money to give to people entering the U.S. illegally? If
true, this would be a mind-blowing affront to the American people.
“Inexcusable” wouldn’t begin to describe it.
As it is, according to the House Committee on Homeland Security, the financial
impact of illegal aliens entering the U.S. is estimated to be $451 billion
annually on the government. It is one thing to rob Peter to pay Paul, quite
another to take money from citizens to give to illegal aliens pouring across
our porous border. Would that we were treated so well. If this were true, why
wouldn’t American citizens head South of the border, walk back
across to the north, collect their $5,000 gift card, cell phone and airline
ticket... and use the airline ticket to fly to El Paso. And then recross the
border into Mexico, perhaps change their hair color, put on a fake nose and
glasses, change their name-- and walk back across the border again to collect
another five grand, and a second cell phone and plane ticket? Wash, rinse, and
Memo to government: we
have a massive homeless crisis across the nation. Maybe attempt to address that
before handing cash and cell phones to migrants? Memo number two (dos) to
government: also, we are at least $33 trillion in debt!!
Should Lamb’s claims prove true-- even nominally, partially, or
occasionally—it should trigger a rebellion/revolution. Particularly amongst the
If it doesn’t, literally nothing will.
And the feds would know that.
