“We need to realize until we close the southern border, every town is a border town, every state is a border state, because drugs, human trafficking, sex trafficking, gangs, it’s all there on the southern border,” Blackburn said while speaking on Fox News's "Fox & Friends."
“So the president is right about this. Mexico needs to secure their southern border to end entry into Mexico, and then we do need to do some things there, getting Border Patrol what they need to do their job.”
Blackburn added that the situation at the border is a "national emergency" and that every Democratic lawmaker should work with Republicans to solve the crisis.
“Every Democrat should come forward and work with us, because this is in our interest to secure it, to stop these drugs coming into our country, to stop the sex trafficking, to stop these gangs," Blackburn said.
