There is no denying the open border policies of Joe Biden’s administration have created a multifaceted crisis that is being felt by every community in our nation.

Relying on Biden’s catch and release policies, the drug cartels and human traffickers use the southern border as an open gateway to lead migrants who are desperately seeking a better life on incredibly dangerous, and often deadly, journeys to enter the United States illegally. This flood of illegal immigrants has also overwhelmed our border security agencies, making it easier for drug cartels to smuggle in the deadly fentanyl that is wreaking havoc in our communities.

Virginia alone spends an estimated $1.7 billion annually to cover the education, medical, and incarceration costs for illegal immigrants that come to Virginia. In Virginia’s State Senate, Sandy will champion legislation that ensures Virginian’s are not stuck paying for the mistakes of Joe Biden’s open border policies.
