Arizona Sheriff Slams California’s Border Policies, Says They’ve “Lost Their Mind”

Sheriff Mark Lamb criticized California’s border policies, describing them as detrimental and indicative of a lack of prudence.

He told Fox News’ Jesse Watters “It doesn’t help the rest of us when they do silly things like that when they offer free sex changes, free health care, free housing;. All that does is entice people to come here, and we don’t need that.”

He also said that California has “lost their mind” on border policy.

Lamb said, “What I keep telling people, when you hear these numbers about Chinese nationals, it’s not like America — people can’t just come and go as they please out of a Communist country. The Chinese government has to be complicit in this.”
