Virginia Lt. Governor Winsome Sears (right) called on President Joe Biden to show up at the US-Mexico border during this week’s show on ‘Sunday Morning Futures’.
Sears said: ‘I would advise the President to come down to the border, Mr. President, and see what’s going on for yourself because that’s what the leaders do. You’re building a $500,000 fence around your perimeter, and I don’t blame you for that. You are the president. You deserve security. But you can’t have a fence, and the others don’t. The people at the border need a fence, Mr. President. Go see about it, about them. Go see what’s going on. That’s what leaders do. You sent people there. They probably didn’t tell you the truth. Go see for yourself.
She continued, “We have a drug problem here in Virginia where we have so many overdoses. I even carry an overdose packet in case I meet someone who needs it. I have visited some of these places and we need help. You keep asking yourself, is there anyone listening to people?
Sears added: “Mr. President, are you there, sir? Do you know what the people you represent need? Go and show yourself. Half of life appears. I went to our flooded areas, and there was a 5-year-old girl, the daughter of one of the granddaughters, actually, of one of the senators in our area. She told me she had seen the flood on television, but then she left. She said mom took me, and that’s not what you see on TV. Mr President, if you even watch the news, it is nothing as you see it. Go see the people you claim to love, your party claims to love. Go and show yourself. People want to know that you care about them. Drugs cross our border, people are trafficked.
