Kari Lake Unveils New Campaign Ad Saying She Will Tackle Border Crisis: ‘Arizona Is Our Home’

Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake recently unveiled a new campaign ad showcasing her plans to combat the border crisis if elected.

“My border policy is the most aggressive effective border policy this country has ever seen,” Lake told The Arizona Sun Times via text. “A couple of the sheriffs in Texas are finally understanding it and pushing the remedy that is right there in the Constitution. When the federal government fails us in their duty to protect us under Article 4, Section 4, we have the remedy in Article 1, Section 10 of the Constitution to protect our own citizens and stop the invasion.”

In her new ad, Lake said Arizona “is under attack.” To fight back, Lake said, as governor, she would make a declaration of invasion, finish the border wall, destroy the cartel’s drug tunnels and surveillance drones, and deploy the Arizona National Guard.

“Arizona is our home. And I will do everything in my power to protect our families,” Lake said.

Furthermore, Lake told The Sun Times that her Republican gubernatorial opponent, Karrin Taylor Robson, does not provide enough of a plan to secure the Arizona border.

“Karrin’s border policy is total BS,” Lake said. “It’s a snazzy creation by her high-priced McCain consultants. But there’s absolutely no meat on the bone. Her border policy is basically what Doug Ducey is doing now: nothing. Electing Karrin would be the same thing as electing Katie Hobbs. We have open borders and corrupt elections. I am the only hope to make sure that Arizona gets on the right track. I hope voters understand what is at stake.”

In her own ad, Robson said she has a six-point plan for securing Arizona’s borders, which includes surging National Guard troops to the border, equipping the border strike force with new technology, and finishing the wall.

Robson’s website shares further details on her six-point plans, starting with an emergency session in the Arizona Legislature to create a legislative package that punishes criminals and boosts funding to law enforcement. The plan would also revoke funding from sanctuary cities and create a multi-state compact focused on border security.

“In the absence of effective federal action, my administration will move swiftly and in concert with our fellow states to finally bring law and order to the border,” Robson said.

On the other hand, Lake’s website outlines her detailed plan for aiding border security, including empowering Arizona sheriffs to deputize Arizonans with training to assist the Department of Public Safety (DPS) in securing the border.

As reported by The Sun Times, Lake’s official border plan is titled “Defend Arizona: We will do what Washington will not.” Lake argues that the federal government has not done its job protecting the border, thus giving Arizona itself the constitutional power to fend off the invasion at the border. Under her plan, Arizona would lead a “coalition of like-minded states” to draft an interstate, border security-focused compact. This compact will share resources, arrest, detain, and return illegal immigrants across the border, and keep working until the border is secure or the federal government resumes its constitutional duty to protect America’s borders.

Moreover, Lake has received endorsements from former ICE director Tom Homan, former Tucson Police Officer Brandon Tatum, and the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police.
