June 24, 2021, Phoenix, AZ – The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) President Vernon Stanforth, released the following statement today, regarding news that Vice President Kamala Harris will be visiting the Mexican Border on Friday. This will also be part of his remarks to more than 2000 attendees at the NSA’s annual conference. 

“Law enforcement leaders have repeatedly asked for the Vice President to visit the southern border and this week she’s finally heading to El Paso. Well, welcome to the border Madam Vice President. We respectfully ask, please talk to residents terrorized by human traffickers and cartel members. Talk to local sheriffs who retrieve the dead bodies of migrants from the river bottoms and the desolate deserts. Please listen to the young women being trafficked and assaulted by the criminal cartels and smugglers and act immediately with us to fix our border challenges. 

We hear a lot of talk from Washington politicians, Madam Vice President please roll up your shirtsleeves, work with us. Together we will make our border safe and America secure.”
